Texas Twinkies

Texas Twinkies bring big flavor with spicy kick

Texas Twinkies start as a hollowed-out jumbo jalapeño, then stuffed with chopped brisket and cream cheese, wrapped in bacon, and glazed with barbecue sauce.

Texas twinkies” were named and made famous by Hutchins BBQ in McKinney, Texas. Many grill masters have been stuffing all kinds of peppers with cheese and meat and wrapping them in bacon for as long as time. This recipe uses extra large peppers stuffed with smoked brisket, wrapped with a thick slice of bacon and smoked until perfect. There is even a sweet kick, if you like, with a kiss of pineapple.
