cut up chicken into thick one inch strips, place in bag with a tea spoon garlic powder, some kosher salt and some black pepper, shake it up

Wow… I may have to make these!March 30, 2007 10:03 am at 10:03 am #123029
As a Bleeding Heart Yuppie Liberal, I felt obliged to buy some local bacon from the new Kroger in the Brewery District a few months ago. It was from that meat packing company on Greenlawn (I forget their name) so I figured it had to be hella fresh.
I cooked the bacon as usual – tender but just a little crispy on the edges – and looked forward to enjoying it with some tasty waffles.
Joke was on me, because apparently it wasn’t seasoned or anything. This bacon tasted like very thin pork chops. Maybe that’s how it’s supposed to taste – THE PUREST FORM OF BACON TRUTH – but I honestly prefer the fake-smoke/pepper/maple/whatever flavor of Oscar Mayer or Sugardale.

After initially seeing the bottom right photo to the left of the text box I wasn’t quite sure where you were sending us…then I figured out what it was.
EDIT: And btw, I’m definitely making these at first cookout.March 30, 2007 1:35 pm at 1:35 pm #123033

OH MAN. References to Achewood at The State all in one post? Turbo Ninja just became my favorite person. :D
But yeah, Onstad’s blog is where I discovered this wonderful bacon fan club. :lol:March 30, 2007 2:59 pm at 2:59 pm #123035

The seeds aren’t the hot part on the jalapeno, they just seem hot because they are attached to the hot part.. if you rinse off a group of seeds, they’re not hot at all. It’s the white part of the pepper (known as the meat) that is the really hot part.March 30, 2007 4:11 pm at 4:11 pm #123036
I never knew that!March 30, 2007 5:29 pm at 5:29 pm #123037

I’ve always heard Capsaicin is found in both the seeds, and ribbing more strongly than the rest of the pepper.
Capsaicin is present in large quantities in the seeds and fleshy fruits of plants in the genus Capsicum.
Perhaps you’re correct that it can be washed off to some degree, but in my experience with jalapenos, the heat gets turned down considerabily when the seeds get tossed (although I’ve never tried washing them off). The rest of the pepper, that you mention is the hot part, is mild enough for nearly anyone to eat once the seeds are removed from the equation.
But yeah, that’s just my experience. I started making my own salsas at home about a year and half ago on a regular basis, so I’ve experimented with a lot of recipes, techniques, and flavors that I’ve read up on.
