"Grillin' Fools"

Scott Thomas, founder of Grillin' Fools, has grilled everything from lettuce to bread to elk to meatloaf as he constantly challenges conventional BBQ wisdom to make sure tried and true is in fact that or just habit. He finds his inspiration from all over whether a bottle of pumpkin ale or a can of chipotle peppers in adobo sauce. His sphere goes well beyond the website as he has been a featured writer in both Feast and St. Louis magazines, appeared on all four local TV stations in St. Louis, as well as on the radio on 105.7 the Point and .590 am, both in St. Louis as well as on .790 am in Houston to share his grilling knowledge. Scott believes in giving as much as he believes in grilling and hosts the premier amateur BBQ contest in the St. Louis area every fall, raising money for first responders and military charities.

Most jalapeno poppers don’t pop at all. I guarantee these will as your party guests or tailgating mates pop a half dozen per person.
