Bacon Wrapped Little Smokie Jalapeno Poppers

Stuffed jalapeno peppers are not fried, these can be baked, grilled, or smoked. These are stuffed with cream cheese, parmesan cheese, and little smokies. When making these I like to add Three Little Pig’s Championship rub. Chipotles are smoked jalapeno peppers. They give a wonderfully smokey flavor without too much heat.

You can cook these either in the oven or on the grill. When I bake these, I bake these at 350 degrees for about 30 minutes. Sometimes if the peppers are a little larger, I may bake these for a little longer. You want to cook these until the bacon is done.


  • 1-pound little smoky sausages
  • 1 package softened cream cheese
  • 1 cup shredded Parmesan cheese
  • ¼ cup of Three Little Pig’s Championship Rub
  • 1/2 lb. thin cut Bacon, sliced into 1/2’s (partially cooked if you want it a little crispier)
  • 1-pound large fresh jalapeno peppers, halved lengthwise and seeded

  1. Preheat the oven to smoker/grill to 350 degrees F (180 C).
  2. Mix the cream cheese, Championship rub and Parmesan cheese in a large bowl.
  3. Spoon 1 tablespoon cream cheese mixture into each jalapeno.
  4. Add a little smoky sausage on top of the cream cheese.
  5. Wrap each Jalapeno with Bacon.
  6. Place the stuffed Jalapenos on the smoker/grill. (Sprinkle with more rub if desired)
  7. Smoke/grill for 30 minutes in the preheated smoker, until bubbly and lightly browned.
