-We’ll start w/ the filling first. In a bowl mix together cream cheese, cheddar cheese, parsley, onion powder, garlic powder, salt and pepper.

-Cut off the top end of the jalapeno. Remove the seeds so that jalapeno is hollow. Fill the pepper with the cream cheese mixture.

-For the meat mixture - Combine ground beef & ground pork. Add in garlic powder, onion powder, cumin, smoked paprika, Worcestershire sauce, egg, salt and pepper. Take about a quarter pound of meat mixture and make it into a thin flat disc. Put the stuffed jalapeno on top and wrap the meat mixture around the jalapeno until the jalapeno is completely covered. Wrap each “armadillo egg" with 2 pieces of bacon. Completely cover the entire egg with bacon. Sprinkle on a bit of your favorite bbq rub seasoning. Repeat for the remaining jalapenos.

-Toss eggs on smoker at 275 degrees for about 1hr 45min or until the bacon is cooked through and to your liking.

-Brush each bacon wrapped armadillo egg with your favorite BBQ sauce and cook for 20 minutes more or until the sauce has set.

-Remove from smoker and allow to cool for 5 minutes before eating.
