I'm looking for some tongue-searing, hot jerky sweetness ingredients!

My colleagues all dig my run-of-the-mill jerky. But are (rather arrogantly) requesting that the next batch be spicier. Granted I don't wanna permanently damage the slobs' tongues by including turpentine or Stern-O, but I want something with more heat + body than what I've been using of late:
- Tabasco
- wasabi powder
- red pepper flakes

Even a 1 c. of ROOSTER (Sriracha) sauce in a 5-lb batch (for the love of GAWD) doesn't make these carni-tards happy!?!

I need something serious that has heat *and* flavor. I've been considering using an entire tube of Japanese horseradish?

Looking at the below chart, I thought "choose your weapon". As you mentioned though, these are friends. The hard part is getting it hot yet something you would still consider flavor (or food, for that matter). I'm not "that" into hot food so I can't help much. I did like the sterno idea though. I'll bet if they're red-blooded Americans they'll belly up to some Police-Grade Pepper Spray jerky. You might even have a corner on a hot market with that one.

Get any of the ole' Juan stuff, like "Da Bomb" it comes in multiple hotness.

Use it in sauces, other liquids to add it.

It WILL add heat, be VERY, VERY careful with this stuff.

There are three,

I recommend these as "ingredients" to make anything else hot. Can say where and how I use them Big Grin

If those aren't hot enough, get this. 7.1 MILLION:
