    Maybe you can talk Steve into donating this pic to 394 productions. I can see it replacing you and your purse.

    What’s the difference between rubbing 24 chili’s in your eyes or just 2? Do the chili’s lose all of their heat after touching her eyes?

    I don’t understand that world record.

    Grind 4 parts chiles, 1part 60 grain vinegar, cook to 195 degrees, place in a sealable plastic container, close and let it seal as it cools.

    Thank you so much, my wife bought me a 20ft by 10ft greenhouse as an early birthday present this year (8 feet tall) I have my seeds started on a heated pad to help germination. It’s going to be a great year.

    Since its you who responded i.have one more question if.you happen to see this and have time to answer. A couple years ago at one of your open houses I had the pleasure of sampling a chocolat hab bourbon mash. I am planting both choclate habs and choclate jolokias this year for the sole purpose of trying to recreate that. Any tips? In all ky years of reviewing that is one of the best things I have ever tasted.

    I do not wish to have finger pointing and name calling on this blog. I respect everyone’s opinion, but I would ask to take personal conflicts elsewhere. If you have issues with a particular post, comment and/or photo feel free to send me a message. Thank you.

    It was a combination of chocolate hab mash prepared the Campbell way (as I described above) and Jim Beam Black Label bourbon aged in a Jim Beam barrel. When you tasted it, it was either 1 or 2 years in the aging process. It aged for three years before we took it out and bottled it. Thanks for the kind words, I think it is awesome! It seamed to mellow in flavor and although I know its not possible, it tastes hotter than when we put it in the barrel! The chipotle-red jalapeΓ±o did not fare as well. It was best after year 1 and got sort of a bitter taste as time wore on. Maybe a little too much fermentation happened.

    Ok I think I got it I just have 3 quick questions, 1 how long after letting the mash seal itself into the plastic bucket do I need to wait before opening it up and using it. 2. Can I get the Jim beam barrel directly from Jim beam by contacting them or did you get it some other way. And 3 do I need to seal the Jim beam barrel any special way or just put the top on. I. Didn’t try it when it was put into the barrel but it.tasted a lot hotter than I thought chocolate habs should. I’m bumed I missed out when you sold it.

    First, we still have some of the mash. It will cool to room temp over night. Leave it sealed until you want to use it, then refrigerate after you break the seal. You can find the barrels online, just search for used bourbon barrel. You should get a new plug with the barrel, but you can buy them online if you don’t get a new one. I also put some Jim Beam Black bourbon in the barrel with the mash before I sealed it.

    Okay so here I jump in to the Fiery pool of controversy. I am going to go with advice I got from CaJohn. If we publicly go after someone on here we must realize that there are people that lurk on these forums and never participate. They copy our comments and even use them later on to cause damage. CaJohn told me he is still paying for comments made years ago. The other day I wrote some heated sarcasm about Dave De Witt. I asked Buddah to remove it. I am not saying James Beck conducts himself well. I do not even know the people he put down. Obviously we would not like to see that kind of behavior. So beating him up on here won’t change that. My advice is those that did not like his comments E mail him or call him. If enough of you do this and do it in a professional manner it might cause him to think. But slamming him will not change him. It will not work with me either. If you have enough friends in the business send him a wave of E mails. Tell him his comments were hurtful and the people he said this about are not doing this to him. So ask him what is his purpose in doing this. I am not saying James Beck will change. If your a Christian pray for him because that might be his only hope! Last year Al changed his awards to be named the Lenny. Al’s dad Lenny had no enemies and was loved by anyone who knew him because he accepted others for who they were regardless of their faults or imperfections. I was touched by this so my links page to this site on my website mentions Lenny. I am not perfect and probably talk way too much. I don’t want an award named after me either. But when I am gone if someone remembers me as other remember Lenny I will indeed be prouder of that than any other accomplishments. Focus on the people that matter in our lives. And if someone offends you at least try and talk to them. One thing is for sure we will not change them by tearing them apart.

    So if I have my Jim beam barrel and my bourbon ready to go when I make the mash do I need to put it in the bucket at all or can I just dump it directly into the barrel with my Jim beam and cork it?

    thanks again for all the advise, i think i have what i need now but may end up getting ahold of you again when it comes time to do it if i have any questions. i found some barrels online but i cant find any used ones. i will keep looking untill my peppers are ready and i need to buy one. im going to mix the choolate habs and chocoloate jolokias into a mash and then make another mash in the buckets with fatalis and yellow jolokias. i dont have as manu jalapenos but i may end up makeing some mash out of those as well. i will be sure to let you know how it all comes out.

    Agreed! Buddah & his “man-purse” is some priceless stuff right there! But I can’t wait for more madcap adventures of his, especially since I’ll be oh-so-ready to properly illustrate such madcap-ness. LOL!
