I love to watch Diners, Drive ins and Dives on the Foodnetwork and they featured a restaurant that served something like these... so of course I googled a recipe and found a few that sounded delicious. I combined a couple of different ones to come up with these. I think I will serve these as an appetiser for my next 4th of July party. Sooooo yummy!
Smoked Jalapeno Poppers
6 Medium Jalapeños
6 slices bacon, cut in half
8 oz. cream cheese, softened
2 TBsp. sour cream
1 cup grated Monterey jack cheese
1/2 to 1 teaspoon chicken or poultry rub (use which ever is your favorite)
When ready to cook, set temperature on your smoker to 180℉ and preheat, lid closed for 15 minutes.
Slice the jalapeños in half lengthwise. Scrape out any seeds and ribs with a small spoon or paring knife.
Mix softened cream cheese with Poultry rub, sour cream and grated cheese.
Spoon mixture onto each jalapeño half. Wrap with bacon and secure with a toothpick if needed.
Place the jalapeños on a rimmed baking sheet with holes in the bottom (I found mine in the Barbecue grill section at walmart). Place on grill and smoke for 30 minutes.
Increase the grill temperature to 375℉ and cook an additional 20 to 30 minutes or until bacon is cooked to desired doneness. Serve warm, enjoy!
