Gateway Drum Smokers
You know 'em. You love 'em. Jalapeño poppers are an easy crowd pleaser!
6-8 Whole Jalapeños
1 8oz Cream Cheese Block
1 Colby Jack Cheese Block
1 lb. Bacon (We choose Blues Hog Sizzle!)
2 tbsp. Blues Hog Sweet & Savory Seasoning
1 cup Blues Hog Raspberry Chipotle BBQ Sauce (or substitute with Blues Hog Tennessee Red BBQ Sauce)
Blues Hog Premium Natural Lump Charcoal
Preheat the Gateway Drum to 300ºF with Lump Charcoal.
Slice jalapeños in half and core out the seeds and membrane.
Spoon 1-2 tsp of cream cheese into each jalapeno boat.
Dice colby jack cheese into 1/2 in. cubes and place one on each jalapeño.
Cut Sizzle Bacon slices and wrap each jalapeño with the slice. Secure the jalapeno in place with a toothpick to prevent unraveling.
Place on the top smoker grate and let cook for 20-30 minutes or until the bacon is fully cooked.
