Chipotle Finale...

Total time smoked: 12 hours
Total time dried @ 100*: 20 hours
The final product: Priceless...the aroma is far superior to any chipotle I've ever purchase; however, it packs a lot of heat! Have to use a pepper lower on the Scoville scale....uuuhhhhweeee!






Also, dropped 3 peppers into my SKYY Vodka...I'll have bloody mary's in a few days!

Thanks for following the ravings of a man who loves to smoke...anything!

One thing that speeds it up and gives good flavor - split them down the middle before putting them on the rack. The inside soaks up the smoke real well.

Man those peppers look great!! But those aren't Jalapenos those are Serrano pepper!! I much prefer the flavor of Serrano peppers myself they have more of a kick. great job

I thought so? The sign at "Sprouts" said jalapeños?! They do have a huge kick!!!

Just a heads up...I'm pretty sure those are Serranos. They look to narrow to be Jalepenos. I only say that because if your expecting the spiciness of a Jalapeno and bite into a Serrano your in for a fiery treat hopmad.gif

Brett, my man...those don't look like chipotles...do they taste like chipotles?

 

I wonder if anyone can give us a recipe for adobo sauce?  Hey Chef JJ!!!  Hook us up brother!

No sweat Doug...I appreciate you taking the time to take a look and comment! I've re-read some of my threads and have actually missed posts! So, the more eyes babysitting me the better!

I thought those looked a little thin to be Jalepenos.  Thanks for the clarification.   Nonetheless, looks like you mastered the process.

 

As for the changing of the color.  Apparently commercial production of Chipotles involves leaving the peppers on the vine to ripen to a dark red, then even letting them shrivel up on the vine a little before picking them, smoking and drying. Even though you were dealing with Serranos, that's probably why you had trouble getting them to ripen.

Thought they all had to be red.

I not sure what's considered "chipotles" but I will say I've smoked many different type of peppers/chiles and other than color, jalapenos, red or green, taste/smell the same. Look thru some of my other post and see...I sell smoked serranos, jalapenos and anaheim peppers...I will say I sell the red chipotle at a faster rate than the green.

I love chipotles and would like to see an adobo recipe posted. I have smoked a ton of peppers but my all time favorite has to be poblanos. Nice and meaty, holds the smoke really well. Grind it up and it goes on everything!
