Aaron Vogel of Cackle & Oink BBQ in Sherman, Texas, created this recipe for ATOMIC BUFFALO TURDS using our Roasted Raspberry Chipotle Sauce

12 fresh jalapeno peppers
12 slices of bacon
24 little smokies
1 package of cream cheese (room temperature)
2 tsp paprika
1 tsp cayenne pepper
Sweet barbecue rub
Fischer & Weiser raspberry chipotle sauce

★To start the construction of the atomic buffalo turds, you’ll first want to wash and trim the jalapeno peppers. I highly recommend wearing plastic food prep gloves during the trimming portion to keep the jalapeno juices from soaking into your skin, so proceed with caution if you choose not to heed my advice. Trimming these guys is a relatively simple task. Simply chop the stem off and slice the pepper lengthwise to expose the seeds and vein. Using a spoon, scrape out the white vein and rinse under water to wash away the seeds. The cream cheese will ultimately counteract the burn from the peppers, so leave a good amount of the inner membrane in tact if you want to feel the heat.In a mixing bowl, combine the cream cheese, paprika and cayenne pepper. Using a butter knife, or a pastry bag, fill each jalapeno half with a generous portion of the cream cheese mixture.Top each one of the jalapeno “boats” with a little smokey.Wrap each of the smokey topped jalapenos with a half slice of bacon, making sure that the seam is directly on top of the little smokey. Secure the wrap by inserting a toothpick straight down through the overlapping edges of the bacon all the way through the little smokey. Stop just short of going through the pepper though, that way the cream cheese doesn’t leak out through the hole.Since bacon already contains a good amount of sodium, you’ll want to season the buffalo turds with a sugar based rub. If you’re the do-it-yourself type, a nice blend of brown sugar and cayenne pepper works great on these bad boys as well.Cooking the buffalo turds is a matter of getting the bacon done to your liking. My preference is smoke at 250 degrees for about an hour and a half. At this point the bacon isn’t overly crispy, but it’s definitely cooked enough to be bite through. If you prefer a crispier bacon, then I’d suggest kicking the temperature up to 300 degrees for about an hour. You’ll want to keep a close eye on the peppers though. If they overcook, then they’ll loose their stability and your turds will spill out all over your smoker.Once your buffalo turds are cooked to your liking, remove them from the grill to cool down a bit before serving. At this point I would typically top them with some warmed up Fischer & Wieser raspberry chipotle sauce- available at Walmart. The flavor of the smokey jalapeno matches perfectly with the sweet fruity sauce, and of course it’s heat is in good company with the medley of peppers tasted in each bite. A spoonful of sauce on each turd and you can guarantee these tasty treats will disappear in no time flat!

We recently came across a beautiful website that caught our eyes, in the form of Edible Style, a business owned and operated by food stylist, Wendy Blasdel, Hollywood, Ca. After reading with much interest, we approached Wendy via an email, asking her if she would be interested in trying our sauces and if she thought there would be a place for them on her TV show schedule. After all, she’s done food styling since 1983 for so many wonderful TV shows and movies, to mention a few, The Thornbirds, Christmas Vacation, Mountain Man, Designing Women, Joe vs. The Volcano,  Dances With Wolves, City Slickers, Jurassic Park, Twilight, Star Trek [pilot and series], Grey’s Anatomy, Law & Order, Dynasty, Falcon Crest, Doogie Howser, Frasier, Cheers,and many more.

When she agreed, we were thrilled, so we began the process of deciding what to send  that would best fit the dishes needed for her schedule. We sent some of our best-sellers and we were very pleased with what she did with them! She used our Mango Ginger Habanero Sauce and Salsa a La Charra  in a recipe for “Grilled chicken and veggie Tostada with Mango Ginger Habanero Sauce and Salsa a la Charra.” (Please click on the “read more” link on her blog to see the recipe).

“For garlic lovers! This is a knock out on kabobs, grilled chicken, pork or any flavor of chops or vegetables. Just right on the spices. Mmmm!”
Texas is synonymous with barbeque and Fischer & Wieser honors that tradition with the authentic Texas Pit BBQ Sauce. After years of sampling pit barbeque at Texas’ most legendary joints, Fischer & Wieser perfected a sauce that pays homage to those smokehouses while introducing a unique chile, the Pasilla de Oaxaca, that is medium-hot and known for its rich-flavor.
“This is my favorite sauce! It is nicely HOT but not on fire and not too sweet.

“This sauce is one of my favorites on hot wings! Great flavor combo with just the right amount of heat!”
We are famous for combining fruit with chipotle, but bacon? Even we didn’t realize what a winner we had on our hands until we took a bite. Bacon is accented by the sizzle of chipotle peppers, sweet molasses and black pepper to create a flavorful barbecue sauce that is ideal for grilling and barbecuing. Enjoy!
THIS sauce is truly outstanding. I took a couple of bottles when visiting my “Mr. Cookout” son a while back. Now it’s his favorite!  He used the Smokehouse Bacon Chipotle to baste what he loves to cook most, grilled chicken, and it was the best! Now it’s my whole family’s favorite. Love it on grilled pork tenderloin, too.
