    New to me Chile

    I just heard about the chile. Chimayo Heritage Red Chile Pods and powder

    Can anyone tell me about it? Taste, heat level?

    No, but I have a couple of Chimayo rugs.

    And I have a friend shipping me some chile next week that are new to me: Lemitar.


      I think I’ve had some of this in powder form in the past but don’t remember much of a difference from the various powders I have tried, or from pods that I’ve blended for various chile and such.

      I know someone on the board received some Chimayo chile last year and I provided some suggestions on cooks, but I don’t remember who that was. Hopefully he sees this thread, but I’d buy it anyways

      as for Jim White mentioning Lemitar - many locals here in NM prefer the Lemitar chile over Hatch, mainly due to taste. I’ve had many varieties, and perhaps it’s a slight difference in the soil and elevation. Chimayo is higher altitude than both Lemitar and Hatch, if that could make a difference.

      But, enjoy that chile and what you make with it!


        Huskee This is about A type of chile pod not a bowl of chili. Didn't know where to put it

          If I were to say I would put it here - https://pitmaster.amazingribs.com/fo...des-and-brines

          Yes, I struggled where to put it too. I'll put it in rubs/seasonings if that's what you want. I went on the title.

        Here is a link to an article about them:

          Thank you!

        I came across tabasco powder, something I had never seen before so I did the honourable thing and got a pkt.
        Made Boerie Breyani last night and didn't have any curry powder to use. I usually use 4 Tbs of all in one curry powder (mild with great flavour) and decided to substitute with a single teaspoon of tabasco powder.
        All I can say the heat was not mild, it was not strong but was FH*.

        I know this doesn't shed any light on your question. Just wanted to share my infamous experience of substituting an ingredient using a never tried before chilli powder.

        * Frightfully Hot. (What were you thinking?)

          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.
