I might have posted this here before, but this is a staple when i do slow smoked BBQ. It's the best appetizer ever, and after you stay up all night drinking and playing with fire, it makes a heck of a snack.

Oh, wait, that's still a little weird.

There are several types, so you can just choose whatever you want for this recipe. I've also heard of people substituting pulled pork, brisket, chicken, or whatever delicious meat product they have handy. You can also mash some jack cheese in there instead of, or mixed with the cream cheese. I guess if you didn't like the heat from the pepper, you could substitute some other sort of pepper, but when it cooks, the pepper's bite softens up a bit, and you have already removed the seeds and pith where a lot of the heat is. They really aren't too hot.
You can't really make this one healthy.
Also, these go from appetizer to "meal" pretty quickly. Its really hard to stop eating them.

I forgot to mention - put these on a broiler pan or something where the grease from the bacon can drain off, and if you do it on the BBQ, watch for fire. If they sit in their own grease while they cook, they get really greasy, but if the fat from the bacon has somewhere else to go, then they are just crispy and delicious.
But if you get too much bacon grease dripping onto the coals in the BBQ, you can imagine what a disaster you might have. Just keep your eye on them, and it will be fine.
