    Great smoke. That's what I call filling up the smoker!

    Re the Achiote, I hadn't heard of it either, so I googled it. Found the following recipe on mexicanfood.about.com. I don't know what annato seeds are or what they (or this paste) taste like. Maybe someone could comment?

    A recipe for Achiote paste that is an ingredient in other Mexican dishes and marinades.


    • 1/4 cup annato seeds
    • 1 tablespoon coriander seeds
    • 1 tablespoon oregano
    • 1 teaspoon cumin seeds
    • 1 teaspoon black peppercorns
    • 2 whole cloves
    • 1 teaspoon salt
    • 5 cloves of garlic, peeled
    • 1/2 cup bitter orange juice (Seville) or 1/3 cup white vinegar


    Grind the spices (annato, coriander, cumin, peppercorns, oregano and cloves) in a spice mill or with a mortar and pestle. Blend the ground spices with the salt, garlic and the bitter orange juice until it is smooth. Rub the mixture onto chicken, pork or fish and let it marinate for 4-6 hours then cook as usual. Or use the achiote as an ingredient in another dish.

    Here is th answer on the seeds

    Annatto, sometimes called Roucou, is a derivative of the achiote trees of tropical regions of the Americas, used to produce a yellow to orange food coloring and also as a flavoring. Its scent is described as "slightly peppery with a hint of nutmeg" and flavor as "slightly sweet and peppery".[

    My suggestion would be to go to a Mexican market and buy this. The cost is about $2.50  and you are all done. The seeds are hard to find around here

    The Hispanic groceries I go to always have annato; I also buy several different types of chile powders so I can have some change-ups in heat and flavor. Gonna have to try this!! It looks amazing!!!!
