Anaheim peppers stuffed with a combination of ground turkey and spicy pork sausage, wrapped in bacon, smoked, then glazed with a mixture of barbecue sauce, honey and butter. They are sticky sweet, with just a touch of spicy goodness.
Note: Tiger Sauce can be found with the hot sauce in most grocery stores. It has a big tiger head on the label (http://www.amazon.com/TryMe-Tiger-Sauce-10-oz/dp/B000BD3XU0)
Wash the Anaheim chiles and cut the stem ends off so that they are of equal length.
Cut a long V-shaped sliver out of one side of each chile. Start at the cut end, about 1/4″ wide and end about an inch from the tip. The intention is to get them to open enough to seed, de-vein and stuff.
Remove the seeds and veins from each chile.
Mix all of the remaining ingredients (except the bacon, BBQ sauce, honey and butter) well in a large mixing bowl.
Roll a tapered cylinder of the stuffing and fit it into the chile, packing it loosely from the tapered end up. You want it full, but not overflowing.
Wrap each chile with one of the bacon slices. Starting about 1″ from the cut end, tuck the end of the slice between the inside of the pepper and the stuffing. Stretch it around the pepper in a spiral pattern moving toward the other end without overlapping. Tuck the other end in the tapered end of the chile, just as you started. It should leave you with about an inch of chile exposed at each end.
Start your fire and prepare for indirect cooking at medium-high heat (about 300ºF).
Add one small chunk of fruit wood (apple or cherry) to the fire about 10 minutes before adding the chiles. Wood chips soaked for 30-60 minutes will work well, too. If you’re using a gas grill, make a smoker pouch.
Dust each wrapped chile lightly with the seasoning.
Cook the chiles with indirect heat for about 1 hour and 15 minutes, turning once at the halfway point.
Mix the BBQ sauce, honey and butter in a small bowl, and set aside.
Glaze each chile on one side, turn, glaze the other side, and cook another 15 minutes.
Glaze and turn the chiles again, then cook another 10 minutes.
Remove and serve immediately.
The most delicious appetizer ever!
