    So back in late june or early july a friend who works at Souther States, gavve me the remainder of their veggie plants..and for fits and shiggles I put them all in the ground...so now I have about 200 pepper plants producing, and just picked five gallons of mammoth jalepenos and cayennes...which my talented middle daughter is topping out in the kitchen right now, the smoker is already going in order to finish off a couple roasts I am making tonight, so I figured I'd put the lot of them in the smoker and make chipotles, and then finish drying them later...with the intention of making a purely evil batch of chile powder...smoked jalepeno/cayenne powder....yikes.

    The Beef Q which I took to work was marginally well received...usually I get more than two marriage proposals...
