I have a ton of Habeneros ripe on the vine. I ordered my Amaz n smoker and it won't be here for three more days. Can I pick them Saturday, split them and dehydrate, then cold smoke? Or should I wait, cold smoke then dehydrate? If I wait, I won't be able to get to them until next Sunday. I'm afraid I will lose a bunch of them to rot and over ripe if I don't pick them this weekend. And I don't have the room to refrig them until next weekend. Any thoughts? Thanks
I want to make smoked powder out of them.
