Serves 12

Ingredients:

  • Cream Cheese ( We used Garlic and Chive)
  • Shredded Sharp Cheddar
  • 6 strips of thick cut bacon (cut in half)
  • Your favorite BBQ spice rub
  •  Toothpicks
  • OPTIONAL- Your favorite BBQ sauce

Directions:

·         Fill your Jalapeno Canoes with the cream cheese mixture.
·         Sprinkle your favorite bbq spice rub onto the cream cheese (sticks to the cream cheese)
·         Next add the shredded sharp cheddar on top the seasoned cream cheese
·         Top with 1 or 2  raw shrimp
·         Wrap your half strip of bacon around the jalapeno and secure with toothpick

Cooking:

Add to the grill on indirect heat, the poppers will be done when the bacon is cooked through and crispy. 
I cooked mine for 45 min on a 250 degree BBQ. 

OPTIONAL:  5 minutes before removing from heat lightly brush BBQ sauce to poppers for an added component.
