Bacon Wrapped Jalapenos
2-3 tubes Chorizo
16 oz Cream Cheese
12 medium–large jalapenos
1lb. Thin-Cut Bacon
2 tbsp. of favorite BBQ seasoning.
Meat Therapy Go-To: Meat Church Holy Voodoo to season cream cheese, & The Gospel to season the bacon.
Precook chorizo in skillet. Add to 16oz of softened cream cheese. Season cream cheese with your favorite BBQ rub. I use 1 tbsp Meat Church Holy Voodoo. Mix-up and place back in fridge to set up, the longer the better, to help keep the cream cheese in place during the cook. Shoot for a minimum of 30 minutes. Take 10-12 jalapenos, cut in half, de-seed & de-vein (that’s the heat). Fill jalapenos with cream cheese mix and wrap with thin-cut bacon—-1lb. should be enough (typically cut the pack in half). The bigger the jalapenos, the more bacon you’ll need. Place on smoker at 325 with hickory or any other medium-smokingwood/pellet for 20-30 minutes. When the bacon looks crispy, or to your liking, pull from the smoker and let rest for 10 minutes…
Can we all agree that we could use a little therapy in our lives? Especially these days! What if that therapy came in the form of an outdoor grill and a prime cut of meat? This is the idea behind Meat Therapy, using my love and passion of outdoor cooking to cope with the everyday stressors of life. My cooks are my “therapy” and I have learned that no matter what you are going through in life, good food and fellowship can be therapeutic.
Hopefully all of you have something you are passionate about, something that brings you joy. In order to share this concept with others, my wife and I teamed up to share her passion of historic homes and my concept of Meat Therapy. This is how Therapy Sessions evolved – the kind where you won’t leave broke, crying, and questioning all your life’s decisions.
Held at the Historic J.S. Berry House in Waxahachie TX, sessions include an interactive, personal grilling experience with yours truly. You and a handful of your new best friends will receive hands-on experience with the prep, process, and presentation of your meat of choice. In addition, enjoy a TX Whiskey smoked old fashioned or a local craft beer from Railport Brewery in the parlor and a cigar on he expansive front porch. Then you’ll reap the fruits of YOUR labor gathered together chowing down around the dining table.
Whether it’s removing the membrane of a rack of ribs in one fell swoop, dry brining a ribeye, or making brisket burnt ends, everyone walks away with a new party trick.
No matter what grill you are cooking on or what kind of food you are throwing down, just do yourself a favor and get outside for some Meat Therapy. And as always, don’t be afraid to suck at something new.
