Had a bunch of peppers from my potted plants (in five gallon pails) and wanted to give a try at smoking/drying to grind into a powder. Started off at low temp around 170 and after a bunch of reading bumped it up 250ish. About five or six hours total time in the smoker, I kind of lost track of it. Seems the Thai Chilies could use longer if needs be tomorrow I will toss them back in with no smoke.
Here is a shot of a the finished product.
Cannot wait to make a powder of them and perhaps make my own homemade "chili powder".
