As we near the end of 2017, we look back on some of the awesome guests we had on our shows this year. One of my favorites was having the opportunity to chat with a legend in the rock world. I'm talking about Mr. Vinnie Paul Abbott of Hellyeah and Pantera. During my interview with Vinnie, I asked about his love for BBQ. He shared with me a secret "Abbott Family Recipe," that would be perfect to warm your guest up a little at your New Years Eve party. We like to call them "Vinnie Paul Poppers."

Forget your classic jalapeno popper. Even though they are usually a crowd favorite. A "Vinnie Paul Popper" is all about thinking outside the box, and focusing on the flavor explosion in your mouth-hole.

Hear from the man himself, how to create a "Vinnie Paul Popper."


  • Whole Jalapenos (split and de-seeded)
  • Creamy Peanut Butter
  • Cooked Bacon Bits
  • Shredded Cheddar Cheese
  • Grape Jelly

We could not resist trying, what may be our new favorite BBQ dish. Check out how to properly construct a "Vinnie Paul Popper."
