Code Red Fire in the Hole Season Pepper was the second creative blend, making it the hottest of all the pepper seasons. It's made from my hottest varieties of chilies, freshly picked from the garden, then grinding these chilies into kosher salt and spices. Placed to dried in the dehydrator to remove excess moisture. When we say fire in the hole you better be ready for outrageous amounts of heat. On Chef Dave's crazy heat scale it's a level 6+, so grab a couple of  glasses of milk quickly after trying this seasoning by itself. This is perfect blend of super hot seasoning to give lots of heat to chicken, pork, beef and vegetables. It's the go to spice blend when making a great BBQ Sauce, or adding so extra zap to those grilled meats.  Finally an answer to making super hot chili. This add just enough heat to say "Fire in the Hole". Giving it a two thumbs up from Chef Dave and his testing friends. Be very careful this is one of my very hottest of Pepper Seasoning Blends, it just might come out both ends.

Lethal Injection Season Pepper is the first series of Chef Dave's pepper seasonings, this season pepper will totally inject lots of heat into foods, with just enough heat to live up to it's name. On Chef Dave's crazy heat taste scale level it ranks a 5 so grab a glass of milk and give it a taste. There is also have very small batch of Lethal Injection Season Pepper infused with smoke. When opening the package it gives a immediate smoky aroma, that really adds a great smoky profile. This smokey hot season blend can be used on chicken, pork, beef, even on starches or try it on some vegetables. I used both of these blends all summer long making BBQ foods. Even Cindy, Chef Dave's wife could handle the heat, but she often complains "why do you make this so hot?" I totally love the endorphin rush, it's awesome.

Citrus Blast Hot Pepper Salt is a wonderful overall seasoning that is not too hot. This seasoning has lemon and lime flavors that are infused into Lemon Drop Chilies and kosher salt. Try this seasoning blend on chicken, fish, vegetables and starches. It's so much better then the typical Lemon Pepper seasoning. This will put some good old fashion hot citrus zip to food. On Chef Dave's crazy heat scale is only a level 1 plus, so it's not too hot. It has just enough heat to warm things up a little. It might be a little too hot for wimpy food lovers, that don't like any heat at all. But you might be surprised by using just right amount of this seasoning, they might even like this Citrus Blast Hot Pepper Salt. Out goes the Lemon Pepper and in comes Citrus Blast Hot Pepper Salt.
