    Dried Crushed Chilli Flakes

    Hi...from the land of the Scotch Bonnet .... I intend to use local peppers to do this, as well as try to cold smoke some in my cabinet. We have 3 main types in Jamaica : 1.) Scotch Bonnet this (to me) has more flavor than heat. a round, squat pepper that has a curious indentation on the bottom.. hence its name mostly yellow in colour. Beware of fakes with an incomplete indentation!! 2.) "Bird Pepper", these are beloved by the local birds, hence the name, are tiny, only an inch long at most, mainly red...and HOT !!! I remember once dining in Denver, I asked for some HOT sauce.. I was given Tabasco, I shook some into my palm to taste, and was told by a concerned waiter that I might injure myself ..I was very disappointed by the lack of heat. Everything is relative, I think...

    Undead Pan

    From Jamaica ... I have a large 10' frying pan that has been used as to rill meats using a ss grate across the mouth as the pan is heated on a gas burner. This has caused pieces of metal to flake off when heated ...should I get this machined flat or try the wire brush / sander method ??

    Cob Bread Oven, Back Yard Sourced!

    "Wattle and daub" is an expression used in Jamaica (among many places) to describe a type of building technique ... "wattle" are overlapped / intertwined branches or small diameter wooden laths. once the desired structural shape is achieved, it is sealed with the "daub" ..which is a mixture very similar to what you describe.... Some are sealed by the application of a plaster-of-paris coat on the exterior.. large roof overhangs prevent excessive water splash onto the walls ...

    Hi, have been researching this clay oven thing for years ...living in Jamaica, there is coconut husk / fiber available..... could this be used in place of grass ??

    Electric Tooth Brush Life Extension

    Hi... I can make one observation.. most of the motor cases have TWO lug depressions, and I had a hard time getting the motor past the last set ..SOLVED A thin strip of plastic, 7'' x 1/4" is bent in a "U" shape and pushed into the case ..to cover the last lug depressions. As each of the lugs are eased out, I slip the plastic over the depression...repeat for the other side, and the motor comes out easily, with no chance of the lugs engaging the second set of depressions..as they are covered by the plastic strip. I live in Jamaica, and my Walgreens brush has lasted over a year.. with cleaning and lube. Oh, I store the handle upside down, so it can drain any crud...

    Very interesting past !! Sorry I missed you when you were in the Caribbean....I live in the central Jamaican mountains. Am a self-taught lapidary and geologist and have discovered an agate deposit nearby. Built my first slab saw and also do smoked marlin, pork, chicken and cheese. A detached retina has curtailed this a bit, but soldier on ...Take care tony
