Super Brisket Poppers

Since our recent smoke produced some overcooked brisket we decided to turn part of it into jalapeno poppers.  My Mrs rounded up some huge jalapenos, up to 4 inches long.  We sliced and seeded each pepper, then added some finely chopped onions.  On top of the onions we put a thin layer of refried beans.  The beans provide a slightly sticky substrate so the chopped onions and crumbled brisket don't fall out when you eat them.  The brisket came next, shredded sharp cheddar cheese, and thick sliced bacon over all.  We cut the bacon to size using kitchen shears rather than wrapping it.  We've found that to be the easiest method.
We covered them with an upturned cake pan (to keep bacon from spattering in the oven) and baked for 30 minutes at 350 degrees.
We enjoyed them so much we plan to have them again this week!
