Imparting smoke on peppers

I've got some peppers for a hot sauce. What y'all think?? Roast with flames, or slow smoke low??

    I Just roasted some Hatch chilis this weekend.  I was setting up the egg for 350 indirect for a pork chop cook.  I through the peppers on around 300, once the egg stabilized @ 350, It threw in a chunk of apple wood.  The peppers were exposed to the "Bad Smoke" and the egg got up to 400.  I pulled, bagged and cleaned.  They were the best peppers I have roasted yet.  SWMBO suggested strongly that I make more :)
