Brian’s Friend, Dripping Springs, TX Smokin’ Dave’s Gourmet Smoked Jalape√Īo’s add a level of flavor you can’t get from anything else. I add them to everything from eggs to sloppy joe’s, even guacamole and it all tastes great. Ask my friends, they love it when I cook…
Mary, Dallas TX. This is the real thing. For those of us that like smoke with their heat, this is it. These days everyone seems to be making chipotle picantes and salsas to get the flavor of smoke, but they can’t touch this. This is better.
Paul, Houston, TX. A friend of mine who lives in Houston drove across town to get your peppers and garlic. He brought them to the deer camp this weekend and I ate nearly all the peppers with every meal we cooked .I made a chicken and sausage gumbo Saturday and used both the garlic and peppers. It was the best I ever made. Found out Sunday morning your peppers were good for a hangover.
Jim in Austin I had the fortunate opportunity to savor the flavor of the Jalapeno’s and Garlic this past weekend…WOW! Talk about a “life changing experience.” I am in “Smoke Heaven!” Your products are AWESOME! Thank you.

It’s wonderful idea. I think Smoked Garlic can be a cutting edge item. Your smoked Garlic is easy er to use than, to peal regular smoked garlic also your smoked jalapeno’s are easy er to use than to soak and slice dried chipotle’s. Smoked jalapeno’s works in any dish you can think of …

Chef Priyanshu Malui :from Dhow Palace Dubai U.A.E.(A 5 star property )

The Peppers and garlic are really sup rising for me and it is really great. By making these items smoked we can use them at quite more places in the menu and that is how they are special.

I love your tasty garlic. I have about 3 or 4 cloves per day, either whole or in my food. My cholesterol and blood pressure are now under control by just eating the things I love!.

I was delighted to receive the jars of jalapenos this week. I immediately started trying them on everything I could think of. Each time they added a wonderful aroma to the food and the kitchen, and although they made the food a little spicy for my daughter, it is perfect for me. I am still experimenting typically using a half jalapeno, each recipe being a little unusual because of the specific types of cheeses and other items available here in Holland.

One of our computer technicians is an ex chef who teaches Mexican cooking for our adult education program. He loves them and uses them in everything, enjoying their versatility.

When I received my jars of ” Smokin’ Daves” smoked jalapenos I was running around like an excited puppy all afternoon, showing them off.

Thank you very much!

I have to say, It takes a lot to impress this Mexican from south of the border. But now I have the final ingredients for the perfect Mexican Boraccho Beans. I still cook my beans from scratch, so I decided to add some “Smokin’ Daves Smoked Jalapenos and Garlic” into the mix. I minced both and added them into the early part of the preparation. About 30 minutes before they were done I added some juice from the jar of smoked jalapenos. I have to say- I have never had my beans taste this good! The whole family was thoroughly impressed. Usually we end up throwing away the leftover beans, but we didn’t have any this time!

And they say that Mexicans can’t bar-b-q because the beans fall through the grill. Well boys and girls, this Mexican has figured out how to get that barbequed flavor into his beans. I guess Mexicans can barbeque after all.

Mike Sturm Houston, Texas

Simply the ‘BEST DAMN STUFF THERE IS!!!’ These peppers are the best thing that ever happened to barbeque (and more) they Rock!!!

I have been chopping your peppers and mixing them with chopped onion, salt, pepper, and lime juice, and putting that on pulled pork sandwiches. Man, you talk about GOOOD!!! We have a barbeque cook-off team that travels around the US to about 30 cook-offs a year. We need to talk!

Like a lot of people these days, I have recently rediscovered my taste for spicy, exotic foods. It seems like every restaurant has “Chipotle This” or “Habanero That”, and some of them are pretty good, but most of them are hard to separate from each other. One day changed that dull, chipotle funk that I was in; I happened to work with Dirk Teng who coincidentally grew his own peppers and other delicacies, and upon further inquiry I found out that he had just what my taste-buds needed! What he does is unlike anything I’ve tasted; he takes these home-grown peppers of his and slow roasts them, like you would a center-cut, over hickory-chips, and then serves them whole. I eyed this pepper in front of me with some suspicion, cut a sizable piece and delivered it to my mouth…I haven’t been the same since! What I think is so great about what Dirk has done is that he has provided something simple and delicious instead of overwhelming the senses with spices and powders. It is food in its purest form, it is nutritious and it is rare. He calls his line of smoked peppers “Gourmet Chipotle”, and that is really what I consider it.

He has a website, “Firenspice.com” and it paints a better picture than I may have, but I have spread the word to everyone I know; these things are delicious! Everyone should try at least one so they can be “in the know” of what real chipotle is!
