Diablo Powder!

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 

My mom gave me some mystery peppers that were a bit hotter than a jalapeno, so I decided to make some chili powder.


Cut the topps of and sliced them in half lengthwise:



I then tossed them onto my WSM with some mesquite smoke for 3 hrs..... smoker was running at 200°. (Sorry forgot to take a picture of that step).no_no.gif


Then I laid them out on a rack in my oven with the oven set at 150°. I put a wood spoon in the top of the door to crack it open and let them dry out for about 10 hrs. (I remembered this picture!)



I then ran them through my $2 yard sale coffee grinder and got this awesome hot powder. It has a nice smokey flavor and is really hot! th_violent5.gif



I labeled it "Diablo Powder" so I don't mix it up with my regular chili powder... lol.

The devil you say?  Glad I didn't get those.  As long as they are, the heat would have been a shock!


Bet that is going to be some great powder!  Did your sinuses survive the grinding process, Johnny?  LOL I bet there was a damp towel somewhere in your kitchen?


Good luck and good smoking.

My little coffee grinder did a great job of keeping all the dust in, only real concern was when I was dumping it out of the grinder.
