Ingredients
Smoked Texas Twinkies:
  • 8-10 Whole Jalapeños
  • 16 oz Cream Cheese
  • 1 cup Shredded Smoked Brisket
  • ½ cup Shredded Cheddar Cheese
  • 10-12 slices Wright Brand Bacon Hickory Smoked
  • Favorite BBQ Seasoning as needed
  • Maple Syrup for glaze
Instructions
  1. Begin by mixing together the cream cheese, shredded brisket and cheddar cheese in one bowl. Next, take a jalapeno and slice a “T” shape with the top slice being underneath the steam and the long slice going the length of the pepper. Using gloves or a utensil, scoop out all the filling and seeds from the inside of the jalapeno. Be careful not to break the stem off. Once cleaned, stuff the pepper full of the cream cheese mixture. Next, take 1 slice of Wright Brand Bacon and carefully wrap it around the whole jalapeno making sure to fully encase it. Season the outside of the bacon with your favorite BBQ seasoning and set to the side. Repeat this for all the other jalapenos until completed.

  2. Preheat your smoker/grill to indirect heat at 250F. Add some wood chips or wood chunks to the smoker for added smoke flavor.
  3. Add your Texas Twinkies to the smoker and let cook for about 90 minutes or until the bacon has become dark amber and crispy. During the last 10 minutes of cooking, glaze the outside of each Twinkie with maple syrup and let cook to get a nice sheen. Once done, pull them off and let them cool for 5 minutes.
  4. Slice them up, serve and enjoy!
