Transplanted Texans...Ayudame!

Bring Back the Stein | Apr 19, 2009 09:29 PM

So, through a luggage foulup, I've left at SATX some cooking supplies that were vital to some Tejano meals and brisket I'm planning on hosting for a passel of New York friends. Any ideas on how and where to find the following? (Be gentle, since, while no stranger to New York, I've done no serious shopping for these products.)

-Wood chips, of the type you can buy at HEB, Both fruit wood (cherry and apple) and hardwood (mesquite, etc.)
-Achiote paste, preferably in cubes
-Mexene Chili Powder (if you've been to Terlingua, you'll know this as vital for at least one of the spice dumps)
-Good guajillo and ancho chiles.

Thanks for the help. Hook 'em Horns.
