Yes, this is a very spicy and hot blend, but not as Hot as his big brother, Flamebreath with an Attitude! This Flamebreath has more savory and less burn. This blend makes a wonderful dry rub or spice base for your own home made BBQ sauce. The Chipotle chili pepper, along with the New Mexico mild chili and the 90 k Cayenne make for a wonderful burn but it's the garlic, paprika, ginger, allspice and nutmeg that make the sweetness of the blend pop when rubbed on your chicken or pork chops. Give this a try on your next pork shoulder roast, or even your deep fry turkey for that special get together with the gang!
