howdy - anyone taken peppers like fresno chilies and then smoked then following by a pickle or fermentation?
I think 2 to 3 hours at 200°F is too high a heat. You will, possibly, end up cooking them and turning them to mush. The smoking needs to be done at a lot lower temperature.
Smoking them shouldn't be an issue. 2 or 3 hours at 200 deg. I usually continue to dry/dehydrate after smoking, but I don't see why you wouldn't be able to pickle them after. Good luck!
