    Good introduction to Paprika!

    Here’s another, similar spice from the Basque region of Spain/France. It’s a bit spicier than sweet paprika. It’s used throughout southern France and the Basque areas for seasoning meats, soups, and beans.

      We grow quite a few paprika plants of a few varieties. Notably a Hungarian, a couple of Spanish varieties, and then Gardeners surprise, i.e. whatever Collette plants. Most get smoked and all get ground. I prefer the Spanish style as they seem a little bolder and a little spicier, which is my style of cooking. There is absolutely nothing scientific or orderly in my process (or life, for that matter), I'm the son of a son of cat skinner so I go by the seat of my pants. This is a nice article, thank you for sharing.


        I tried growing smoked paprika but it always dies around 125 degrees

          You guys got it all wrong. After it sprouts, transplant it into the chimney of your smoker. Use the cold smoke setting on the charcoal offset, be sure it is plugged in and filled with pellets.
          In a few months harvest your smoked paprika.

          Optional water with PBR for drunken, smoked paprika.

        A useful introductory primer, Thanks, Amigo!

        I have several types, my dang self, but knowledge is always welcomed!


          My grandfather was Hungarian, so paprika is a part of daily life for me. Hungarian sweet went on just about everything growing up.

          In my kitchen there is always a dish of coarse kosher salt on the counter, and the three main spices right above it are black pepper, garlic, and paprika. Can think of very few dishes that don’t get that trio.

        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 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.

        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.
