Man those look good! That would make an excellent bbq sauce. I have also had some powder on popcorn before and it was out of this world. I would also like one if you have any left, thanks in advance.

Buddy, THANK YOU!

I picked up the envelope today and..YUM! Just tasted the smoked chile flake and it's really good! I plan on sharing with another local chilehead and making sure I save some for our NW Chilefest in a couple weeks. After that...it's all mine!


I'm envisioning a fettuccine alfredo type dish with smoked salmon and smoked congos........yeah, baby~~~


Thanks again for sharing.

Hey Ann. I hickory and mesquite smoked a bunch of AJ's Trinidad Black Congos in a Weber kettle last year that turned out pretty great. I will also bring some of it to the NW Chilefest. It is the most amazing powder I''ve ever experienced. I would love to see Buddy's Congo creation.

Thanks Buddy....
Got my envelope of flakes today....I got a little advance notice of what was in the envelope when I opened the lid of my mail box.
The smokey fragrance brought a smile to my lips and a growl of anticipation in my stomach...
...Can hardly wait to give them a try later this afternoon with some smoked baby backs.
Thanks for sharing !!

Buddy, did you use a coffee or spice grinder? if so did you end up with alot of fine powder, I'm currently dehydrating some brown pods, then to the smoker, I like the way the flakes turned out for you

i put them inside two gallon sized freezer bags, broke them up with my fingers, and used a rolling pin to get them to the consistency that i wanted. i use a coffee grinder if i take them to powder.

Still working on the Apple/cherry smoked bhuts you gave me last year. Thanks you again.

Question for you.....
Can I smoke in a gas grill or do I need a round charcoal pit if I don't have a smoker??????
