It’s almost Halloween and if you’re cooking on your EGG, you may end up with more people knocking on your door asking for pork chops than candy! In case you’re willing to share and want to please a crowd, we recommend warm Margherita Pizza, FGL’s Lemon Pepper Wings or our favorite, S’mores in a Cone!

Making Chipotles

Thanks for the responses earlier this week and references to older posts. I now have 25 red jalapenos undergoing a slow transformation into Chipotles. Here are the players (24 here, but added one from the garden after pic was taken):
Small fire, pecan chips interspersed with the lump plus a couple of pecan chunks. Spider, spacers, round drip pan and elevated grid. Since the BBQ Guru doesn't have a pit setting below 175*, I decided to attached the pit probe to the dome thermometer, thinking the grid temp would be 20-25* less than the dome temp. Goal was to try to keep grid temp at 150-160*.
Smoking good:
Smell SO good ! :woohoo:
Plan is to smoke overnight (12 hours), then transfer to a dehydrator for 12+ additional hours, or until done.
I lifted the dome after about 2 hours (to add some more pecan chips) and got quite a "whiff" of spicy smoke ! :ohmy: :ohmy:

More updates tomorrow!
