Hatch Chile seeds

15 December 2018 - 08:58 PM

Looking for land race or true Hatch Chile seed.


I think these the the fire roasted kind you get canned at local grocery stores?


Looking to make sauce and roast/can my own next season.

Anyone have seed?

I have 2018 Red Rocoto seed to trade or a pint of Scotch Bonnet moa dill pickles.

Brisket help please....

7:30 am here.

Just picked this up

I have never cooked one.

I have a 4 burner gas grill. Current plan is indirect heat only using the right 2 burners for heat, placing brisket on left side.

I have a small cast iron smoker box for some chips and not really looking for that dark black outer crust.

Just something palatable and tender with good flavor.


Please give a little advice using the tools I have above...there are no other options at this time.


Rub?

Temp to shoot for?

Dumb idea and just wasted the $$?

Wrap in foil? If so when?

Do you let it rest? I would like it to be medium if possible.

I would like to have this tonight since its dates today on sale.

Vodka... what's your choice.

Good gloomy typical Wa spring weather.

Planning on Cocktails soon...Canadian Ceasars on the menu.

I have had the usuals...Smir, Absolute, Grey G, Skyy, Finn.


Before I go plunk down a few bucks on the old standbys, any recommendations on something else to try?

Not into fufu flavored stuff.

Peppers from store bought seeds?

18 March 2018 - 12:43 PM

My local Safeway started carrying a few off the norm peppers.

 

Decent pile of Monzano peppers, so I grabbed the best looking one.

 

Can you get these to germinate?  can you sow directly with fresh seeds or need to dry first?
