  • Next add the garlic.

  • Add some of the BBQ Rub to the foil underneath the cream cheese to season the bottom of the cream cheese.

Notes

Cooking times may vary depending on your smoker and your ability to keep the temperature. I would check the cream cheese at the hour and a half mark and then go from there. If it looks like it is melting -pull it.
Wear gloves when handling hot peppers. For less spice, you can remove the seeds from the jalapenos.
