    IAKnight's Note:

    This is something I came up with one winter day. First you taste the sweet and then comes the slow burn! I use jalepenos that we grew, dried, and keep in our freezer. This also makes a great dry rub for the grill or smoker!

      Excellent jerky. Taste is just as descibed. First bite real sweet then the spiciness hits. I done mine in the smoker for 4 hours at 200 degrees. If doing in the smoker, you may want to hold the temp around 175. Mine turned out tender and moist, but the sugar content of the rub caused the outside of the jerky to blacken. Didn't cause any problem taste wise. It is a definite keeper. Thanks for sharing.
