Sounds good to me. I'd rather use the pit and smoke for drying them. Air drying is risky. I forgot to mention that if you are air drying outdoors, you need to have them contained in screen enclosure. You also don't want bugs etc having a picnic on the peppers as they dry either.
I may try some with my order of Hatch chiles at the end of summer. Sure would be nice to have some dry, smoked green chile for winter.
