    Landed a skirt steak on sale, which means fajitas in my house. I wanted to try some of the peppers I've been getting in a rub. I had chipotles, guajillos and some little hot red peppers a friend brought back from Italy. All needed some more drying so I put them in the smoker at a low temp with no wood...

    All dried and powdered...I added some onion powder, garlic powder and brown sugar...

    The steak was marinaded in mojo overnight. I only rubbed one piece with the three-pepper rub because the rest of the family can't take the heat.

    Smoked for a little more than an hour over pecan, then onto the grill for a sear (the orange on the meat is cheddar that dripped out of my ABTs)...

    Then onto a tortilla with some (OK, lots) homemade guac and sauteed onions and bell peppers - delicious!

    Thanks for checking them out!

    I was wondering what that was. Looks great, would have loved to try the pepper rubbed one.

    Man that looks good and all but could you even taste the meat thur that pepper rub it looks alot heavy to me. But then I cann't take the hot like I used too. But now the rest of the meals looks good I like the homemade guac with the red peppers and onions.

    Meatball, that was a great dinner you made, and what a nice trio of spices. Love "falda" meat but it's impossibly expensive around here. Excellent liberal use of the guacamole on the fajita, bud! [​IMG] Can't have it any other way!

    Actually, it really wasn't that hot. Had a great flavor and I even got the wife to try some, and she has major adverse reactions to too much heat!

    Yeah, next time I'll do more steak with the pepper rub - this was just experimental the first time around.

    Usually expensive meat around here too, so we always snatch it when we notice a sale. Liberal use is the only way to go with my wife's guac my friend!

    Thanks for the nice comments guys.
