    Controlled Burn Hot Sauce batch VI

    Just finished Controlled Burn Hot Sauce batch VI. Did a double batch as I give a lot away for fans. I wanted a bit hotter so I increased the habaneros a bit. I used one red bell pepper (7.66 oz.), habaneros (8.16 oz.), red chili peppers (6.18 oz.), serrano peppers (6.06 oz.), and Anaheim peppers (2.21 oz.). I carefully weigh all of the peppers on a digital scale and record how much they weigh so I can adjust my next batch. I bought 5 oz. bottles from S&K (http://www.sks-bottle.com/340c/fin18ab.html) and print my own labels. I even got shrink wrap for the caps.
    I did batch VI on 6-6-15 (not realizing that on 6-6 I did batch VI (666)). I strained out the solids today and bottled into pancake syrup bottles until I get more of the 5 oz. bottles. I also use red wine vinegar bottles for home use. I pretty much eat scrambled eggs every day as we have 20 chickens, the vast majority being American Buckeyes (a real breed, look it up...lol). I put hot sauce on my eggs every day. Good stuff. My favorite recipe here on AR. I follow the recipe exactly except for the pepper proportions, although this time I added an extra 2 oz. of pineapple juice because I didn't want to throw out the extra juice.

    The bottles come from SKS, not S&K. http://www.sks-bottle.com/340c/fin18ab.html


      Thanks for posting. Any idea what variety the red chiles were? They don't quite look right for jalapenos, but might be. Or maybe Fresno? Also didn't see any Anaheims in the photos, but I assume you did use them?

      BTW--it's chile, not chili.

        No idea , I bought the CHILES (lol) at Publix and the bin just said "Red Chile Peppers". The Anaheims weren't pictured as they were thawing from the freezer.

            Just did Batch XI the other day. Have had a bit of trouble finding some of the peppers that are ripened i.e. the jalapenos specifically. Found a local produce market that has them in stock periodically. All of the peppers for this batch were a nice bright color. As you can see by the pics, I loaded up on the habaneros. I forget the name of the peppers to the right but I have the name written down somewhere. Sauce turned out very tasty, as always. My favorite recipe from AR, bar none.

            The Good-One Is A Superb Grill And A Superb Smoker All In One

            The Good-One Open Range is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. By placing the heat source behind and under the smokebox instead of off to the side, Open Range produces even temperature from left to right, something almost impossible to achieve with a standard barrel shaped offset.
