#1441239 Savoury chilli recommendations

Posted by SavinaRed on Today, 01:52 PM

Thanks for the suggestions guys, unfortunately I need red pods for my purpose :) I'll keep those in mind though

I'm just curious as to why the pod color matters if your primary purpose is to add flavor to cooking ?  The paste should not change the color of the food you are cooking or am I missing something ?


I would think the flavor is primary and color secondary but this is just my opinion lol.

Today I get my SS Chimney and CI plate setter. Can't wait to try it out this weekend. My CI grate arrives next week so I will be using the stock SS grate for high temps like pizza and the CI for my burgers, steaks and other meats that I want to sear. The nice thing about the new CI grate is my old kamado grill had the same grate so I kept the attachment that fits in the hole, its a 16 inch warming grate that swivels.   :)


I gave my other vision kamado grill to my brother.

#1440345 4 new trees in 20 gal containers

Posted by SavinaRed on 27 March 2017 - 08:53 AM

It's funny that this thread popped up today. I just got finished planting five new fruit trees that my brother bought for me in my front yard.
We planted a tiny Australian finger lime, a persimmon, and a small grouping of 3 pawpaws.

He knows that I'm kind of obsessed with fruit trees. And I forgot the varieties, but he says the persimmon he got is supposed to be the best tasting there is. I think I'll have to give him first dibs when it starts fruiting, he's really looking forward to that one.

But, I'm slowly trying to create a fruit forest on my little property. In addition to those five, in the front yard I have a pomegranate, olive, yuzu, quince, figs(ichia, Celeste, and negronne), along with muscadines, passionfruit, and of course peppers.
Then in the back yard, I have a blood orange, grapefruit, kiwi, loquat, figs(Celeste, O'rourke, and some unknown), and a couple passionfruit, and a bunch of peppers.

Anyway, I've put most of them in the ground in the last three years. So there's not a lot of fruit production yet...but after a few years, it will be glorious. And there are still so many more I want, I just gotta find room.

Every year at Christmas time I make a batch of Hot Sauce as gifts with persimmons. Its everyones favorite. I use Bishops Crown peppers for the flavor and heat. Sweet onions, salt and ACV thats it.

So...it's all your fault...after reading this thread I started looking around and found a Bearss lime tree and had that bad boy shipped to my house. It's 6.5 feet tall and a little lanky but it's mine ;)

I will have to pull it inside for the winter and it'll go inside the grow tent until next spring. I LOVE fresh limes :)

I also purchased one of those 1/2 wine barrels for it next year.

I'm going to add a Bearss lime this year too. :)

Thanks I will use my probe for the inside on the grill and order a probe made for the BGE on the outside.

Yes I'm going to try some sourdough bread in the BGE soon. First I have to get a new temp gauge. The one I ordered the probe is to thick so I would have to drill a bigger hole in the egg which I really do not want to do.

Man that looks delicious !!!


There is an accessory that elevated the grill even with the top lid meets the bottom. It sells for $49 and I'll try and find the link because I'm getting one. It also holds the place setter in it as well.

Yes I've learned the hard way on pizza with my kamado at 700* plus, it got me really good and my burp was to short lol.  


Its just a good habit/practice to get yourself into with a consistent routine when opening the lid. That way if you are drinking to much it will be instinctive to burp before burning yourself.  :)

Dang those are some  nice looking plants and very high tech with the indoor grow room. One of these days I'll see if the wifey will let me convert our spare room into a grow room.  :)
