Ghost Pepper Turkey Chili

Recommended Posts

Decided to make up a batch of turkey chili soup tonight. Ordered a few ghost pepper chili kits on my last Sucklebusters order, so figured I may as well go go for it (didn’t really follow their recipe though).  It was super good - but boy was it hot!  All the sliced serrano’s and jalapeños I added probably didn’t help much on that front either....

It only hurt for a little while. Totally worth it.

Looks fantastic. It will hurt again... :-P

 

I grew ghost peppers (and some hotter ones) for several years., still have a huge stockpile of dried ones since I'm the only one in the house that tolerates heat at that level (my wife thinks ketchup has a bite...).

 

 

 

Wish I could say I thought you were wrong on the hurting again, but I'm afraid you're probably dead on.  LOL.

 

My husband manned up and got after it, too.   I got him a small bowl, then he went back for seconds and thirds.  I was proud of him...  He used to tolerate spicy way better than I did, but as we've gotten older the tables have turned.  I'll make something thinking I have toned it down for him and the kids and he'll politely inform me that I indeed, did not do a good job of keeping it to a mild roar.

I have the same problem with my wife. I seem to have problems keeping the chili mild enough for her.

The part that hurt more than eating the chili was washing the pot. Must be the steamy hot water vaporizing the ghost pepper residue or something.... I was choking, gagging and the whole nine yards standing there at the sink cleaning it up.  Lol.

Yup. Cold water rinse until the pot looks "clean" to get rid of the bulk, then hot water and lots of soap (Dawn seems to work real good on the pepper oils) for the remainder.

That would have been handy to know earlier. :)

Do you wear gloves when cutting them up? I never did, too much fun licking my fingertips hours later and getting a fresh burn. :lol:

 

It did make using the facilities a bit of a challenge...

 

Never bother with gloves unless dealing with something more exotic than you find in the supermarket.  Even though I don’t have the using the facilities issue, that can bite you plenty of different ways. Lol. 

 

I didn’t have to chop any up for this... The ghost pepper chili powder was part of the kit.  But I’ve tangled with some nasty customers before...

      Hey guys,
      I am about to pull the trigger on one of the new Big Joes tomorrow. I had one question about it though. Has anyone had a problem with the latches getting hot? It seems like this could be an issue.

      Tonight at request on my son's, I made some hot wings with Joetisserie using Basket.    Last night I prepped wings with rub, air dried in refrigerator overnight.   Today heat soaked Kamado at 450 and spin the wings for 25 minutes at 425-450F.   I then glazed wings with sweet Asian style sriracha, I used red sriracha.   After plating I coated with sesame seeds.   Very happy how crispy the wings were.   I attached two pictures, one with wings in basket and final plating picture.

      3 cans of diced tomato  5 or 6 large pickled jalapenos 6 or so slices of pickled carrots from the pepper jar 3 tbs sriracha garlic mix 3 tbs lime juice 2 tbs dried cilantro 1 1/2 tsp salt 1/2 to 3 tsp your choice of dried chili for heat.  I use 1/2 tsp dried ghost chili Combine in the food processor and process on low until blended well.  For best flavor place in fridge over night.

      What better than a Ghost Chili Crucible Rub mixed half and half with Habanero Death Dust Rub Pulled Pork? Not much I think.... stay tuned for live updates....

      My journey began when I came across some of the Oakridge Bbq ghost chili rub news on instagram. Within a couple days I had two bags in my possession that were numbered sequentially as they are only limited to 694 in the world. 

      I had to move on a cook quick and decided to do a pork butt with the rub and smoked with peach wood. After I put the rub on the butt, I looked in the bag and got a little scared...

      Not much left..... the smell alone was super intense....
      Rubbed the butt down and let it rest while the fire got going...
      I put the butt on the Kamado Joe Classic and let it run all night at 250
      This was the result....

      Sorry about the pic...
      Really hot and really good, the peach smoke took the edge off the chili but wow it was good. Thanks for looking.
