HOW MUCH CHILE POWDER TO ADD.... it's impossible to tell- some chile powder is as hot as hell, somes not, and some folks like really HOT sauce, some can't handle it. But I think you can find out quickly..... if it's HOT, just add so much (1/4 cup?) at a time, and then taste. That's about the only way I know of not to get into trouble with Scoville! [p]Personally. I like stuff pretty dang HOT. But since not many of my friends do (weenies!), I make it pretty "weak", and then add the hot either by spice or by freshed chopped japalano or serrano, to my own servings. I've been using this stuff called Chipotle Morita lately (Kinda like rough chopped chipotle peppers). Or (my soapbox) seek out HATCH chile powder from HATCH N.M. Delicious deep red rich stuff. OR...since it makes so much, I split it up and leave some of it "MILD" and make some of it "ROCKIN'".[p]HOW MUCH KITCHEN BOUQUET TO ADD. Well, I haven't the vaguest, but the recipe says "Add to darken" so a few smallpourings (3 TBSP) seems to darken the sauce somewhat, so there I go! [p]HOW LONG TO COOK. I watched a friend make this this weekend, and he got confused. He didn't cook it enough. You need to simmer, so it's bubbling at, gosh how shall I say it... a low to medium rate, for 2 hours. Stove set at 2/3 the distance between low and medium. It will lose about 1/3 of it's volume, and get darker and thicker. When it's done, it's not thin like it started out, and it's not paste. Stir occasionally, but I've never had it stick. If it's getting sauce on your stove as it cooks, you probably have it on too high! [p]Vaya Con BBQ! [p]Mike Flaherty[p]

    Mike,[p]I did that sauce this past Saturday. Followed directions to the T. The taste is really good (next time some home made chili's for more heat). [p]The sauce turned out very thin. Cooked for 2 hours on the head. Can I put it back on and thin it or is it too late?[p]Thanks Mike,[p]

  • MickeyT.,[p]DId you put the full load of sugar in it? Try simmering it again, at a bit higher rate![p]Mike
