I cut them in half length-wise.
They are thick-walled & it speeds the drying process.
Looking good there!

Forgive my ignorance but are you making Chipotle?

I sliced em in half to smoke em, they were better I thought than the ones I didn't cut,

I do the same thing but I usually cut them in half before smoking. Takes up more real estate but it helps with the drying process. Japs take a long time in the dehydrator, but well worth the time.

I keep them whole, and set my UDS at about 150. I'll let it run for about 18 hours and then check.. They're usually just about done by then, but if not I'll just toss em in the oven at 200 and they finish in an hour or so.

@cheez, yea, for all practical purposes you could call them chipotles I guess. Just smoked dried jalapeņos.

That is something I never think about for saving chili's. I love chipotle powder and homemade would be great I think. Thanks!:thumb:

I do a bunch of different peppers every year. My experience is that they take forever to dry in the dehydrator. 24 hrs plus isn't uncommon for me. It worth it though. When I'm done for the year, I grind and mix together.

I another hour it will have been 24 hours but only 10 hours cut in half.

whenever i put anything on the smoker, i throw at least a half dozen jalapeno peppers on. whole. they sit there the entire cook and ultimately get dry and smoky. grind them up in my spice grinder and add to the stash. good stuff maynard.

Adam, they just take a while. Have patience. They're looking good.

It won't hurt to overshoot it either. Leave em overnight, they'll be fine


Here's how they should look when done..

+ 1 on patience. It's worth it, if they take 36 hours so be it. I use the dehydrator for lots of stuff, and peppers take the longest for me.
FWIW, I've never gotten them dry completely whole. I always cut in half, even small ones.

Took about 29 hours total.

Grind them using this thing.

Got about a 1/2 cup.

Smells great and hot. Had my nose running and sweating while grinding.

Might try some hot snack sticks with this.

When I do my pepper grinds, I usually cut the peppers in rings. I have never smoked them first so this year that is my direction. Thanks for the idea!

I usually make grinds out of Thai, habs, ghosts, and jabs. I use a coffee grinder to make the powder.
