Larger Jalapeno Rack - Help Please

I bought some very nice sized jalapeno peppers, plump to say the least and did some ABT's over the weekend. I have a Steve Raichlen rack that holds 18 peppers, it is 7.5" X 4.5". The problem even using every-other hole this rack was worthless, the holes have a 1" diameter and the peppers were falling over because they did not sit down in far enough. I've looked on Amazon and did a Google search and do not see any holder that have a larger hole ... Anybody have one that they could recommend?

I saw a guy cut holes in to the bottom side of a 1/2 pan and hold them that way!

Why do em upright? Split em and lay em flat. Better use of the surface area...and better overall finished product IMHO.

Re: Larger Jalapeno Rack - Help Please

I have tried them both ways and really like them upright in the rack Greg's idea might be the cheapest. I found a source http://tinyurl.com/684dac that makes a Magnum Model with 1.5" holes, but it is $50.00. Seems the 1/2 pan with 1.5 holes would do the trick, and I'd have a project to boot.

I'm with Scotty, split them and lay them down. Nothing to clean when your done also!

Re: Larger Jalapeno Rack - Help Please

I like to use a skewer and thread several on it.
Then place several skewers side by side over a grill basket.
Works well with things i already have.

I agree and almost do the same. I core instead of splitting them, after the 5th time making them I finally got the process down pat. I can get about 50-100 peppers to fit if they lay flat.

Re: Larger Jalapeno Rack - Help Please

Get a aluminum pan and use skewers and cook them that way. Heres kind of an example of what I'm talking about.
