Jalapeno Ingredients



  • Light the Cowboy Hardwood Lump Charcoal in a charcoal chimney or mound inside your grill and let burn for 10-15 minutes.
  • Place a handful of Hickory Wood Chunks onto fire and let burn for 5 minutes.
  • Soak toothpicks in water in order to prevent burning.
  • In a bowl, mix the cream cheese and sharp cheddar thoroughly.
  • Cut top off jalapenos and scrap out all of the seeds.
  • Stuff jalapenos with cheese mixture.
  • Wrap a whole piece of bacon around jalapenos and secure with a toothpick.
  • Once the grill is mostly white ash coals and medium heat, then place wrapped jalapenos on top.
  • Let jalapenos grills for 7 minutes per side or until your level of crispiness for the bacon.
  • Pull jalapenos off the grill and brush Cowboy Hickory Smoke BBQ Sauce on top.
  • Enjoy and Happy 4th of July!
