Hawaiian ABT - The Legendary Atomic Buffalo Turd with Pineapple - 52 Grilled Appetizers or Side Dishes

Sweet, Heat, Bacon, Creamy and it's served on a stick!

The pretty name, A-B-T is just fine.  But among BBQ guys (and gals), they are always called the Atomic Buffalo Turds.

Simple to prepare, all of the assembly work can be done in advance.  They are cooked with indirect heat so there is no flipping (can easily be cooked inside in the oven for a hint of BBQ in the winter).  Just pop on the grill and pick them off when they are done.

It is little extra gems like these that will make you shine out as "That GUY (or Gal)", the king of the neighborhood grill!

OK... Here's what I did...

Hawaiian ABT - The Legendary Atomic Buffalo Turd with Pineapple

  • 12 Whole Jalapeno Peppers, sliced in half lengthwise
  • 8 Oz Cream Cheese, softened to room Temperature
  • 24 Slices Thick Cut Bacon
  • 24 Small long Pieces of Fresh Pineapple, cut to be slightly smaller than the size of the split Jalapenos
  • Several Toothpicks

  1. Half the jalapenos leaving the stem.
  2. With a spoon scrape out the seeds and veins, then rinse with water.  NOTE: It is the seeds and the white veins that are the most SPICY.  Remove as much as possible to make a milder version of this if you are serving a large crowd.
  3. Fill each jalapeno half with cream cheese, making sure to not overfill past the rim.
  4. Place a slice of pineapple in each.
  5. Starting at the bottom, wrap each stuffed jalapeno with bacon, add a toothpick to hold it together.
  6. Place ABT’s on the grill, indirect heat (Coals pushed to the side, peppers placed where there are no coals under the peppers.
  7. Grill until bacon is crisp about an hour to an hour 15 minutes. They can easily be done in a oven. (Not recommended: you will lose that wonderful smokey flavor)
  8. Remove toothpicks prior to serving
  9. Serve HOT and ENJOY (Everyone always does)!
