Hawaiian Atomic Buffalo Turds - 52 Grilling and BBQ Secret Extras APPETIZERS

Pin It Now!

Yeah yeah, I know terrible name.  In polite circles these are also called Hawaiian ATBs.  My back yard is not as polite as it should be.

And before I get to deep in the write up, don't be afraid of the jalapeno.  Amazingly enough, the roasting brings out the natural sugars found in all vegetables.  That plus the combination of the cream cheese mixed with sweet pineapple creates a balance of the remaining heat and the sweet (alnog with the savory BACON... Could these be the perfect culinary combo?

Well, probably not but they sure are tasty.

And if you look real close you can see a couple of yellow peppers mixed in with the green Jalapenos.  Same idea, just Sweet Banana Peppers in place of the jalapeno.every once in a while I get wimps in my back yard.

Highly recommended you give these a try.  They will become the talk of the party!

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

Atomic Buffalo Turds

  • 12 Medium Jalapeno Peppers, tops removed and seeds and membrane carefully scrapped out WITHOUT piercing the sides)
  • 1 Small can Crushed Pineapple
  • 1 Brick of Cream Cheese
  • 6 Slices Thick Cut Bacon, Cut in half to make 12 pieces
Cooking Directions
  1. Preheat the oven to 450 Degrees (or prepare a HOT Grill with coals bunched only on one side, creating a direct and indirect heat source).
  2. Prep the jalapenos by cutting off the stems and with a slim knife, Remove the membrane and seeds inside. (Wear gloves if you have them to avoid contact with the oils from the membrane and seeds.), Be careful to not cut through the sides.
  3. Prep the stuffing, mix the pineapple and cream cheese together (easy in a stand mixer),
  4. Next, stuff the cream cheese pineapple mix into each of the peppers, as much as possible. If you use a ziplock bag with one tip cut you stuff the goo in deeper.
  5. Wrap the open end of the pepper with a slice of bacon and continue to wrap around the side. Secure with a toothpick.
  6. Arrange on a parchment paper lined rimmed cookie sheet if you are baking in an oven, or arrange over the indirect heat section of the grill. Close the lid or back in an oven for 20-25 minutes until the bacon has cooked through.
  7. Serve Warm and ENJOY!
