when you say smoke jalapeno's, what are you trying to get at?
Just a smoked pepper to eat, or to use in a rub/sauce?

well you probably know that chipotles are smoked dried peppers. I don't think you would want to dry them out. I've never done it, but I would think I'd brush em with oil and then smoke em till they start to get tender.
Then remove and clean, and keep in a plastic bag in the fridge till you're ready to make the salsa....sounds really good.

I just blacken the tomatillos on a cast iron skillet. Cook them this way over med-high heat util the skin blisters and they soften. You can do some serrano chiles and onions at the same time. Reserve all the juice and toss everything in the blender with some salt. It will have a smokey character to it but not really be smoked. This technique works with tomatoes as well. Good luck, Woodsmoke

I do what WoodBayliss does except on the grill. Direct, med-high to high heat.
