Dehydrated hot chili peppers on the BGE

have my first batch of hot peppers sitting in a low slow smoke bath for about 12 hours.  Puncture the chilies with a pin in a few spots to help steam escape and speed up the drying time, bathe in heavy smoke at about ~200 until peppers are completely dry and store in a cool dark space like a pantry. Will hold for about a year no problem.

to eat place dried chili on a sauce pan at medium heat and turn until pepper becomes slightly tender and moves without breaking. Drop into a boiling pot of water, remove from heat source and cover for 10-15 minutes. Pepper will rehydrate and be ready for sauces, chili recipes etc.

a pepper that goes through this process seems hotter than fresh off the vine, with the added benefit of delicious smoke which really makes your chili come to life.  You can skip the water and grind into a dry rub seasoning blend as well.  can't wait to get some of these chocolate habanero's into a chili pot on the egg
