    Carolina Reapers are finally bearing fruit!

    I was worried! The habañeros, cayennes, and Tabasco peppers have all been coming in nicely, but the Reapers seem to be about 2-3 weeks behind. But they look like they’ll be just fine… late, but fine!

    Where did you get the plants or seeds from? I’m curious cause most of what we think are Carolina Reapers are not authentic. Only seeds from PuckerbuttpepperCo. are legit.
    I grew them for a bunch of years and found this out after talking with Ed himself.
    Got them from various vendors and they never were as good or as plentiful as the original.
    Not to say they, and what you have, isn’t gonna be hot as hell. They will be for sure. But they may not be true Smokin’ Ed’s Carolina Reapers.

      Reapers are open pollinated and stable so as long as the blossoms were covered and no bee crossed them with another pepper its the same from on generation to the next. You can save seeds from reapers and grow reapers next season.

      Good point Michael Brinton My last couple of yields, not so good, may have been due to this.
      Won’t know since the Y put an end to my growing.

        Home Depot. I’m gonna say they are authentic. Maybe he made a deal.

        Our Favorite Backyard Smoker

        The amazing Karubecue is the most innovative smoker in the world. The quality of meat from this machine is astonishing. At its crux is a patented firebox that burns logs above the cooking chamber and sucks heat and extremely clean blue smoke into the thermostat controlled oven. It is our favorite smoker, period.

        The Pit Barrel Cooker May Be Too Easy


        The PBC has a rabid cult following for good reason. It is absolutely positively without a doubt the best bargain on a smoker in the world. Period. This baby will cook circles around the cheap offset sideways barrel smokers because temperature control is so much easier.

        Masterbuilt MPS 340/G ThermoTemp XL Propane Smoker


        This is the first propane smoker with a thermostat, making this baby foolproof. Set ThermoTemp’s dial from 175° to 350°F and the thermostat inside will adjust the burner just like an indoor kitchen oven. All you need to do is add wood to the tray above the burner to start smokin’.

        Is This Superb Charcoal Grill A Kamado Killer?


        The PK-360, with 360 square inches of cooking space, this rust free, cast aluminum charcoal grill is durable and easy to use. Four-way venting means it’s easy to set up for two zone cooking with more control than single vent Kamado grills. It is beautifully designed, completely portable, and much easier to set up for 2-zone cooking than any round kamado.

        Grilla Pellet Smoker proves good things come in small packages

        We always liked Grilla. The small 31.5″ x 29.5″ footprint makes it ideal for use where BBQ space is limited, as on a condo patio.
