Default Home Smoked Chile Peppers?

Mods, feel free to move this if need be. I couldn't decide if it belonged in the Ethnic Foods or the BBQ forums.

I've smoked my own Chipotles, once. They were GREAT!! Has anyone else tried smoking their own peppers? Bam?

I would really be interested in how smoked Hab's turned out, or on the opposite end of the spectrum, smoked Poblanos.

he said they were smokey and a little overdone..he cooked them too high of a heat but ended up making them into smoked hab powder. he said they were freakin hot still..lol

i just talked to some else about smoking habs and heres what he said.....

"smoke at 135*F, either cut the habs in half or put slits in them, traditional wood for smoking is pecan, he smoke for 3-4 hours and then finish drying in the dehydrator... to make powder out of them he removes the stems and seeds, then grinds.."

I don't know if this counts, But I've dried habs & red peppers, Arbols, Gulio peppers, jalapenos, serrentos and so on and they turn out to have a smokey taste to them which is good.

I make my Chipotle every year and then dry them after I'm done. I usually have one Jalapeņo bush set up for just making Chipotle and leave them on the bush until red. I've also done small batches of habaneros and cayenne peppers with good results.

i smoked some today with you in mind Allen.

i didnt dry them in a dehydrator when done because i want to use them for a hot sauce but they turned out great.

they have a nice smokey smell but not overwelming, flavor is still of a hab with a nice smoke flavor. it didnt lose any heat.

4 hours smoke with cherry wood at 130-190*F, not overly smokey,just right




bagged and ready for the freezer for future hot sauce

So, smoking cooks and flavors them, but doesn't really dry them out for long term storage like a food dehydrator would? They would have a shelf life if only smoked?

Most pepper can be dried with out a dehydrator really but the dehydrator is faster. Some ovens will go low enough for it and a simple brown paper bag around the peppers and left in a sunny place will also work on some. The main concern would be mold forming on the pepper. I dehydrate due to the simple fact, I often grow more than I could eat before they went bad. I often dry and grind peppers putting them in spice jars which will extend their usefulness a lot longer. I've also dried and put into zip lock bags in my pantry then when ready to use rehydrate with some water in a bowl. You will lose some texture but not much heat or taste.

One other thing I assume most do is smoke them before drying them out. Then you can really do pretty much anything with them. They can be dried then smoke but I personally think the smoke flavor is wasted doing that, pretty much like smoking salt it works but not great.

I've made my own chipotles, once. The cooking/smoking process did exactly that, cooked and smoked the peppers, but did not dry them. I used most of them within a month.

Smoking food does preserve it a bit. The nitrates present in the smoke will also preserve the smoked item somewhat, but not forever.

I only mine about an hour of smoking then followed by the dehydrator.

I was using a blend of Oak and Mesquite.

I think the Mesquite would be a little more authentic to smoking anything from that part of the world. I used some oak because I always have some oak in the mix; it helps to cut the cost/extend the supply of my flavoring woods, and the smoke created by oak is nice and sweet to my palate.
