Smoked Pulled Pork Stuffed Peppers

Smoked Pulled Pork Stuffed Peppers - What's a pit boss to do with some of that hickory smoked pulled pork leftovers while keeping it low carb and delicious was my main challenge. Since I had red bell peppers sitting around in the fridge needing to be used I decided to kill two birds with one stone. As I researched pulled pork stuffed peppers I discovered that most recipes only used 3 to 5 ingredients. But remembering just how much I enjoy Atomic Buffalo Turds (ABT) I decided to incorporate the ABT recipe from my cookbook, The Wood Pellet Smoker and Grill Cookbook with a composite of pulled pork stuffed pepper recipes. The results were surprisingly simple and delicious. One of the best parts of cooking is getting inspired by a variety of recipes and then applying your personal touch, techniques, and flavor profiles.
