I mentioned these in a different thread, and it made me realize I hadn't had them in quite some time. I couldn't pass up the Walmart clearance on the WSM, so I broke it in with these little guys. I didn't really have much of a need for this cooker, but you can never have enough right?

I love these little peppers for a variety of things. For these I just cut a little u shape out of the top of each pepper

The jambalaya is loosely based on a ray Lampe recipe I found several years ago, but I kind of just use whatever I have around sometimes.

Load it into the peppers, and onto the cooker. I had the WSM as hot as I could get it earlier for the burn in, so it was a bit of a chore to settle it down. I like to do these peppers under 250. It seems to cook them just right for softness, but it was running between 275 and 300 or so. I just left them on for about an hour, and they seemed done. Nice little one bite snacks.

I never really cared for the grate system in the bullet cookers, but it certainly hums right along.

Very good looking and a great idea!!

I noticed you're in IN....where did a northern boy learn about jambalaya?

I live in New Orleans...thought it was still a secret we had down here!!

Haha. I'm an adventurous eater, and a student of regional cuisine. I love perfecting something here at home that is typically not seen outside a small area. That being said, jambalaya has seemed to break out, and I do see it from time to time on local menus. I've been to New Orleans many times,and the food is definitely the best part. Go cups are a close second. My aunt lives literally on top of emerils flagship restaurant on Julia St. The smells coming from the restaurant up to their deck is amazing. I realize emeril is sort of a joke at this point, but the double cut pork chop I had there was probably a top ten all time meal.

Obviously they are not known for their mexican food, but I had one of my favorite Tacos ever in New Orleans as well. Lobster Tacos on homemade corn tortillas at El Gato negro in the quarter. Now it may or may not have had something to do with the handful of top shelf cilantro lime margaritas I had while waiting on the Tacos...
