Default Embarrasing!

I had an idea about making some Jerk chicken drummettes last night for a potluck today. Mixed up my own Jerk Marinade for about 5 lbs of drummettes. I put FIVE habaneros in the food processor for the marinade and let them sit for a coupla hours.

Put them in the smoker for about 45 minutes at about 300 degrees. The sugar in the marinade camalized nicely and the looked good. Tried one.

Bland.

Had MrsMista try one.

Bland. No heat.

I thought our lips would be on fire.

Nothing.

I was gonna throw them away and buy a veggie platter. MrsMista said just put some sauce on them and they will be fine.

*grumble*

I was really embarrassed by these but what did I have to lose? I put the in a glass dish poured some sauce over them and stuck them back in the smoker for a while. They came out almost black.

AAAARRRGGHH!

MrsMista tasted one and said it tasted a little burnt but it was better than before. She said to take them. I warmed them up when I got to work. Now they really look sticky. I gave one to one of the guys and told him to tell me if they were really awful and if they were, I would take them off of the table and go get something else.

He bit it. He said it was good. He took another bite. He said it was really good. I told him he didn't have to spare my feelings. He told some other people. They said if this is bad I can't even imagine what good tastes like.

Now the dish is empty, folx are happy and one guy wants me to cater a birthday party. Go figure.

Maybe I'll mess up a brisket and bring it in next week...

Once again the Brethren taste buds are a bit more "difficult" to please than the average. I keep saying "the worst you do with your smoker is better than they can go out and buy"

Funny ... interesting .. and hard to believe. I love all Mexican food, and usually prefer it pretty hot! Went into a local place, they had some Hab salsa on the table, put some on my food, almost couldn't breathe. 30 minutes later I was still drinking water and wiping my lips to stop the flame. Now, when I see habs anywhere, I just move in the opposite direction.

Glad to hear all worked out so well!

That's funny, Mista!! That won't be the last time you pull out of a nose dive and end up stepping in the roses, I bet! It is hard to believe that five habs produced no heat, though. Maybe the winter crop isn't as potent??

Just the smell from blending five habs shoulda been blom crazy.

Now the trick is to replicate the recipe...

Mista, that reminds me of a day when I had 3 racks of ribs that I tried texas pepper jelly on. They got really overcooked, and I had them on the counter to cool so I could pitch them. A friend stopped by and tried one, then another, and ate a whole rack. I sent them home with him. He tells me I should come up with a slogan like "My friends even love my failures"

Something somewhere, way back there in the dusty corners of my memory . . . it seems that sufficient heat breaks down capsaicin, the molecules that make peppers hot.

I remember my first ABTs weren't nearly as hot as I thought they would be (I like to munch on Jalepenos straight out of the garden) . . . but the row furthest away from the firebox were spicier than the others.

Congrats on the save! Sometimes success comes from simply pitching your stuff to the right crowd . . .

For what it's worth . . .

Here is basically what I used for a marinade:

5 habaneros
1 medium onion
6 green onions ( white parts only)
1/4 cup soy sauce
1/8 cup apple cider vinegar
1/8 cup canola oil
1 tablespoon black pepper
2 tsp thyme
2 tsp allspice
2 tsp cinnamon

I thought it would be spicy. I guess the smoke mellowed it.

Did you seed the Habs?
I think we are our harshest critics, I always try to elicit an honest opinion from my test subjects, most are always polite and I have to prod them, except for my youngest sister who was a pastry chef and cook before raising a family- she is honest and sometimes blunt, but I take her advice and critique!

Yep, that's funny. We complain all the time about the cook, yet the people eating it rave on and on....

Nice save! My wife has always said I'm my toughest critic. I guess it's that eternal search for the perfect que!

Maybe they were sweet baby bells mistaken for habs. My first experience with a hab was when I thought it was a red sweet baby bell pepper. Plopped that puppy in my mouth bit down and spit it out crying!
