smoking jalapeno's

Discussion in 'Peppers' started by nola saints smoker, Apr 23, 2010.

  1. I have about 25 jalapeno's that I would like to smoke this weekend. I would like to start them on my smoker then transfer to a dehydrator to finish. Is there an approxmate time that I need to leave them on the smoker and at what temp to achieve the best results?

    What are your plans for these jalapeno's? Are they for ABT's or drying them to chop and grind?
  3. i want to grind into a powder.

    I thought that was your direction. I have never done it but. I would probably open them up. Than smoke for an hour or two. Good luck and let us know the results.

    when I did mine I halved them and left the seeds in , some things I have read say take the seeds out , I smoked them at 225 with the door to my MES barely open probably for about an hour or so and then I finished drying them in a tabletop convection oven that I use for making jerky . They shrivel up ALOT . I used some of my ground up peppers last night on a couple of chicken patties .
  6. I was thinkig about halving and leaving the seeds thinking it may cut down on the smoking/drying time. i'll give it a shot this weekend and see how they turn out.

    Thanks for the info.

    I would halve but if you are looking to do a finer powder like a chili powder then the seeds should come out. If you are doing a flake pepper like a chile pice or the flake pepper that you would use on pizza, then seeds in would be fine.
  8. I want to grind into a fine powder. would the seeds be removed before or after smoking?
  9. When I did my harvest last year, I smoked jalapenos and habaneros for 1-2 hours at about 225 degrees. Then I put em in the dehydrator until they were nice and crispy. Then ran everything though my coffee grinder until it was as fine as I could get it. If I remember correctly, I halved the peppers, removed the seeds, but left the rest of the stuff in there. It was HOT, but in an AWESOME way!!!!
  10. I think I will half them and smoke for a couple of yours as TNDawg said and will transfer to my dehydrator. I have some habanero plants but no peppers yet. I want to smoke those and grind into a powder.
    thanks for the info.
