Do you love bbq food? Do you love spicy food? Do you love bacon? Are you nodding like a bobble-head? If yes, then our Malaysian Smoked Black Whole Peppercorns are for you.
I realize that there’s a good chance you know Reluctant Trading for our signature Tellicherry peppercorns from Kerala, India.
Over the years, I’ve been searching the globe to add worthy pepper companions. I’m happy to say that I’ve struck pepper gold again.
Recently, I came across a small farmer named Mr. Siew from Sarawak, Malaysia who is doing revolutionary things with peppercorns. And that’s saying something for a spice that’s been around for thousands of years.
Traditionally, fresh pepper berries are dried in the sun for several days until they turn black and hard. But Mr. Siew is a pepper pioneer (pepperneer?). He has come up with new ways to achieve exceptional flavor and texture.
Within 24 hours of harvest, Mr. Siew dries his pepper berries in pressure cookers at intense temperatures. As a result, his peppercorns retain heat (these are hotter than our Tellicherry), beautiful aroma and a pleasing dry and crackly texture.
For his Redwood Smoked Peppercorns, Mr. Siew adds an additional step. He slowly smokes the peppercorns with local mango redwood. Mr. Siew’s pepper is infused with a big, beautiful, sweet and smoky aroma that will trick your inner Homer Simpson into thinking BACON! (Even though there is no actual bacon involved.)
Look, I’m not just blowing smoke here. That’s Mr. Siew’s job. And he’s darn good at it.
Grind our Smoked Malaysian Peppercorns on meats, potatoes, eggs and anywhere you want to bring the BBQ inside.
Also be sure to check out Mr. Siew’s unsmoked peppercorn version, his Lightly Salted Malaysian Peppercorns.

This pepper is outstanding! The aroma from the Smokey peppercorn just blows you away!
I sincerely hope you put this up in the 16oz container. I will buy it again!
Transported to a smoky, peppery, happy place! Great product!
Look no further for the ultimate seasoning. Grind these smoked black peppercorns on everything. Fish, veg, salads…of course. But why stop there? Go ahead and try some on vanilla bean ice cream. These little wonders were originally a hostess gift from a discerning guest with exemplary taste. Now they are a pantry must. And you can bet that guest will be invited back!
Tried at the restaurant I work at the guests Love It!!! I do a blend of organic black tellicherry and smoked tellicherry with some grains of paradise.
I like it so much I’m going to order more. I also had some sent to my sister who likes it so much she said she’ll probably no longer order your regular black peppercorns, only the smoked pepper! :)
