All the peppers are bell peppers, and they "go away" during the cook. Maybe next time you try making it, and don't tell them what is in it. Please understand that I am not trying to be hard headed, but the peppers really do bring this dish to another level, especially after several hours in the smoke.
With that said, I'm glad your cook was a success. How about some pics of the spread?
