You can either clean the jalapenos by cutting the stem end off and cleaning out the seeds and ribs and standing them in a pepper rack (recommended) or slice them in half lengthwise, removing the seeds and ribs and "canoeing" them. Stuff each pepper until filling is level with top edge of pepper. For vertical peppers lay one piece of bacon over the top of each and fasten with a toothpick and set them in the holes of a pepper roaster. For canoe style, lay a piece of bacon over the top of each and lay out on a baking sheet. Put into smoker and cook for 3-4 hours or bake in oven for 2-3 hours. At end of roasting time turn on broiler and broil long enough to crisp the bacon.
