Man, that's excellent. There's no place to get them cooked like that around here, at least as far as I know.
Then again, there's probably no place to get fresh dungeness crab there, so it's a tradeoff.
One of the signature smells around here is that of chilis roasting in every store parking lot. It's probably like woodfire in some areas, it tells you summer is ending and fall is just around the corner. This week I have to go and get a bushel. I'm down to a couple of pounds left from last year, that just won't fly.
I buy mine off the tailgate of a farm truck outside of Artesia NM, about 30 miles from here. Last year a bushel was $18 roasted, and they have very hot(Barker), hot(Sandia) and Big Jim, which are milder but very thick fleshed and great for rellenos.. Last year's Big Jims were hotter than the medium Hatch chile being sold down here.
