    I know that Orem and the South Jordan stores will have them.
    I wont make that mistake. a few weeks ago I mentioned to friends that I had regretted not heeding your advice. I was making some chile verde and desperately needed some hatch.

    Do you know how many days they are doing it? Can't seem to find it on the website.

    Last year they roasted them for about 5 weeks, but only the first 3 weeks were hatch chiles. I would suggest getting there in the first 2 weeks. I plan on picking mine up this Friday.
    The crux of what has traumatized us about CUF/CG is that we thought they were our friends. And their identity as BYU fans turned out to be the most important thing to them. What empty lives! What a damning indictment of the LDS Church!

    im reading this thread and it seems to make more sense to buy from ABQ costco. all the work is already done. Am I looking at this the wrong way?

    I think it's just a matter of cost/time/effort. Somebody can probably buy 30 lbs. of roasted chiles that are ready to peel from a local store for a little over $1/lb. They then need to peel, seed, dice if desired, and freeze. The other extreme is ordering roasted, seeded, diced, frozen chiles from a website like Hatch Chile Express for $10-$15/lb. I don't know what the cost is at ABQC, but it's probably somewhere in between the two extremes. Also, the ability to get the chiles from ABQ to a person's kitchen will vary by individual.

    I'm leaning toward buying some to roast myself at home. I'd like to see how the kamado does with roasting peppers. If I like the flavor and results, then maybe I go bigger next time.

    What if you had a hot peperoncini? I bet you'd love munching on those while eating a sandwich on a Saturday afternoon.

    Anything, I've read here that there is never a time to use any other ingredient.

    Got our first bushel last year. I mainly use them in scrambled eggs. I came to really love them and I ran out a month or two ago. Can't wait to restock.

    I used some and got bored with them. Think I have a bunch still in my freezer. I need to throw them away.

    It's on!

    Two bushels this year. Makes for a fair amount of work, but we are getting more efficient.

    We were supposed to have Chile roasting at our local Albertsons yesterday. When I showed up there was a sign that said it was cancelled due to weather. ???

    second year in a row I'll miss out.

    I saw this at the grocery store today and thought of mpfunk, I haven’t tried it yet but I’m guessing it is delicious. Also with his turning away from righteousness, aka wickedness, it seemed right up his alley!
