Summer is all about a good backyard BBQ. Our friend Vinnie Paul Abbott (Pantera, Damageplan, HELLYEAH) is no stranger to the art of the grill. During a recent interview with Vinnie Paul, we dug deep and asked that he share a "secret Abbott Family recipe." People from Texas are masters at grilling, and Vinnie had a very unconventional Tex-Mex recipe for us to try.

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."
