I have some people that would like me to make them some old fashion wieners with jalapeno peppers mixed in. I was wondering what ratio of peppers to meat to use. Also, if fresh peppers or flakes would turn out better.
@enovotny I always use dehydrated flakes, it is just easier for me than cleaning the jalapenos. For those you would rehydrate them at a ratio of one part flakes to 5 parts water and then add between 3% and 6% of the weight of your product. It gives a good jalapeno flavor with a little kick of heat.
Of course plenty of people use fresh jalapenos as well. You can do the 3-6% but I would start with trying 3% and dial it in from there.
Let us know if you need anything else!
@rodneycaudill ok ok, y’all are convincing me. I will look more at the vacuum chamber. Thanks for y’alls input!
I bought a chamber vacmaster vp 120 from waltons over a year ago, and it works great. just don’t get nothing inside the bag where it seals the bag.
We’ll that was the first thing that came to mind the first batch i ever made. had a cold beer in hand and was sampling one and closed my eyes to savor the moment and the smoke aroma smelled just like i had a lit cigar in my mouth thus the term [meat cigars]
