Step 3

Fill Peppers. You can pipe in the filling or do it the speedy way...scoop and level off.  Then make striations in the filling for added texture and smoke absorption.

Step 4 (Optional)

To Wrap or Not Wrap?  You may bacon-wrap these poppers if you like.  I do half plain and half wrapped, placed on seperate racks.

Get Smokin'  Place your poppers in the smoker at 250 F for 60-75 mins for al dente peppers. If you like them more tender smoke up to 90 mins.
