Depending on the crowd size.
Cream Cheese 24 oz should be enough
enough bacon to wrap 40 jalepeno half's. usually 3 packs.
Start your prep time early. These take awhile to prep and cook.
Half and gut all the jalapenos. You will end up with 40. Wash and clean them.
Start filling the inside with the cream cheese. then wrap one piece of bacon completely around the jalapeno. Then insert onto skewer. You can fit 6 to 8 on one skewer
(I have at times inserted food items into the cream cheese before the bacon such as tiny shrimp.)
Now this is the hard part.
The best way to do this is smoke them slow and low.
I only have at the moment a gas grill and have learned how to smoke on it.
The trick is to smoke it enough to where the bacon is fully cooked (this may require some turning of the Jalapeno's). the jalapenos should end up soft. the best way to check this is to take a skewer and if it slides through your jalapeno, then its good.
About this time you want to slap some BBQ sauce on both sides and let it candy for about 5 minutes.
Take it out and dip in ranch or BBQ sauce and be the life of the party for years to come.
