Instructions
  1. Gather your ingredients. This one is pretty simple. Fire up your smoker to at least 275. You can also use a bbq or cook in the oven, but I think the smoke gives these a great look and taste. I used a Weber Smokey Mountain with charcoal and cherry wood chunks
  2. Start by cleaning the jalapenos, cutting off the tops and removing the seeds
  3. Cut up some cheddar and stuff it inside
  4. Slice up the sausage into 6 equal pieces
  5. Flatten out the sausage into an oval shape
  6. Place the jalapeno and cheddar in the middle and seal up, rolling in your hand into an egg shape
  7. Lay out some bacon
  8. Wrap up tightly, keeping the ends down
  9. Grab your favorite seasoning and sprinkle some on
  10. Don’t overdue it, a little bit goes a long way
  11. Toss those suckers on the smoker, with the ends of the bacon down
  12. Smoke for about 2 1/2 hours or until the bacon is cooked. You will notice that the bacon isn’t very crispy
  13. Toss them in the oven at 350 for 15-20 minutes to crisp up the bacon
  14. Let sit 5 minutes
  15. Slice in half and enjoy!
