Last night I posted the beginning of my first attempt to make Chipotle Chilis.
(Shortcut to original post: Making Chipotles )

Todd (Big'un) suggested splitting to increase the smoke absorption, so last night I split 5 of the 25 to test the effect.

This is after 12 hours - dome temp at 175-180*, steady:
This is at the completion, this am, of 12 hours of low temp smoking with pecan chunks. Transferred to a dehydrator.
The split ones look done. Very leathery and dry. Will cool for a while, then place in a ziplock bag until others are done.
These are the ones still on the dehydrator. I think they need a little more time, but am not sure (maybe more black color to them??).
Help! Open to opinions are to how to know when these are ready?
At this point, I'm planning to continue dehydrating overnight and rechecking in the am. BTW, they add a nice smoky smell to the room. :ohmy: :woohoo:
More to come......
