    How do you know when they're done?
    Got my first batch going, don't want to ruin 'em.

    They're done then! Actually they could have stayed a little longer and it wouldn't have hurt anything. Good though, thanks!

    Next time I make them I'll hang them up on racks. I was reading one of the other threads about homemade racks and realized (too late) that I had something that will work: The wire racks meant for making Buffalo wings. Checked it out after I brought that batch in, they'd hang just right on them.
  7. Man those look great!! [​IMG]

    Good lookin' ABTs!!
  10. I smoke ABT's for about 2-3 hours at 250 or so. I have gone longer with them with no problems. Others may disagree, but the longer you cook them, the less "heat" they have. I probably overcook them, just because the people I served them to don't like hot stuff. You will still get the random hot one, but usually they taste like bell peppers. But WOW! do I love to see the look on the persons face thats gets the random hot one! lol.

    You've got the right idea, just run with it! If you're concerned over the heat, by sure and remove the seeds and the white membrane, this is the main source of heat. It is true that the longer you cook them, the heat will diisapate somewhat. You can always use a milder chile, like a fresh Anaheim or Poblano.

    Next time I do them I'll completely wrap the pepper instead of just draping it over the top.
    After they were done I discovered I had just the thing to suspend them from: the racks I bought to make Buffalo Wings. They should hold 8-10 each.
