Game Day Recipe – Bacon Wrapped Jalapeno Poppers

Recipe By: Lorrie L.

Title: Rat Tails

Rat Tails, Atomic Buffalo Turds, Bacon Wrapped Jalapeño Poppers, whatever you call em, they taste great. Our fan Lorrie L. submitted this recipe to us and we sure enjoyed what she had to share.



  • 15-16 fresh jalapeños
  • 15-16 slices of bacon
  • 1 package spicy sausage
  • 2 – 8oz packages of cream cheese


Brown package of spicy sausage in cast iron skillet

Wash jalapeños and cut in half length-wise.

For a hot jalapeno, leave the seeds or as much seeds as you wish, for a mild jalapeno spoon out the seeds and insides.

Mix sausage with cream cheese to make filling.

*Microwave cream cheese for a few seconds to soften.

Fill jalapenos halves with cream cheese filling.

Cut bacon strips in half and wrap jalapeno with bacon.

If needed, you can insert toothpick to hold bacon onto the pepper.

Put jalapenos in smoker or Dutch oven and bake until bacon is crispy.

We used the Pellet Grill & Smoker to add some smoky flavor and smoked them at 375 for about 40 minutes.

This recipe will also work in a conventional oven however cooking times may vary. What an amazing recipe this was and we’re sure will be a repeat recipe around the Camp Chef office. Stay tuned, there are more to come.
