September Book Club
The Road by Cormac McCarthy


Another recipe from Julie with an outrageous name, Atomic Buffalo Turds. Search the internet and you'll find that the name and recipe are not so unusual among the BBQ crowd.

30 Jalapeno peppers
8 oz. cream cheese
1/2 cup cheddar cheese
1 cup pulled pork*
1 1/2 tsp. garlic powder
1 1/2 tsp. onion powder
1 Tbs. honey
1 lb. bacon
Penzey's BBQ 3000 or similar rub


Preheat oven to 375°

Remove bacon and cream cheese from refrigerator and bring to room temperature.

Mix all ingredients except bacon and BBQ rub.

Split jalapenos lengthwise and remove seeds. Fill each half with cream cheese mixture. Place two jalapeno halves back together.

Cut bacon in half and wrap around each appetizer. Sprinkle with rub.

Bake 20 minutes or until desired crispness for bacon.


*For a good pulled pork recipe, use the North Carolina-Style Pulled Pork from Allrecipes. Just skip the last step dealing with making the vinegar-based bbq sauce. It's not needed for this recipe.


Pairing Suggestions:

Don't judge a book by its cover or a recipe by its name, surprise endings leaving you wanting more. Dish these up with An Inconvenient Wife by Megan Chance, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo by Stieg Larsson, The Thirteenth Tale by Diane Setterfield
