I had four originally and was a bit short then had to get two more.  So about 6 and they were medium size.

Used your recipe for the smoked salsa last night.  2:20 of pecan (only wood I have at the moment)  Came out good with a fantastic smoke flavor.  No heat though which was surprising b/c I put 10 big jalapenos in there.  Gonna pick up some fresh ones tonight to mince and add to my portion. 

And yes, it makes a TON of salsa. 

Next time I think I will change two things.  1) mince the garlic and then smoke it on a piece of foil.  I have a crappy food processor so there are some large chunks.  2) leave the seeds/membrane on half the peppers and make a mild and hot batch.  Thanks for the recipe, have a great weekend everyone!

Many fresh Jalapenos are quite mild - there are "sweet" varieties.  If available in your area try substituting some Serrano for Jap's.
I like animals, they taste good!

Funny this post came back up tonight.  Earlier this evening I had my first taste of the cheese.  The pepper jack had a smooth smoke hint and the cheddar had a stronger, but awesome smoke taste .  My question, what is the best way to store cheese?  I will be getting a FoodSaver tomorrow for my b-day.  Can you freeze?  How long will cheese keep in fridge before going bad?

Bob, glad you liked the salsa.  I made it again with 12 peppers and again it did not have much heat.  So either leave some seeds and membrane or use a Serrano's as BuyLow suggested.  Its a bit of a balancing act with garlic as well as the last batch would linger on your tongue a while.  I did not mind, but the wife..well.

I have both heard of and had vac cheese in the fridge for months, many months.  No degradation - maybe even got better.  You have family and friends - and me -?  Just parcel it out.

I put all the recipes I want to make on to "Notepad". Then when I had a bunch I got a small memory stick and now keep them on it so I don't lose them.
I like to walk threw life on the path of least resistance. But sometimes the path needs a good kick in the ass.

Glad people are trying it.  My only caution would be watch the garlic if you are not a big fan and maybe start by putting four of the onions in.  Just depends on how strong they are.
