    Memphis Dust rub for Stl ribs - how to add heat

    Memphis Dust is a fantastic rub. What is the best way to add heat if I am using only a dry rub? I have successfully used Memphis Dust and then added spicy BBQ sauce at the end, to add heat. Trying to understand the best way to add some heat and keep the ribs dry rub. Thanks.

    I will add cayenne pepper or chipotle powder to the rub. Be careful a little goes a long way. I prefer spicy, my better 2/3 not so much. It is a compromise thing.

      Thank you. What do you mean by my better 2/3?

      For a lot of flavor and reasonably mild heat try Aleppo pepper flakes or powder

            Thank you. Sounds like Cayenne Pepper is the reco. From that other post (thanks holehogg ), someone said: 1/2 tsp or more of smoked cayenne to 3 tsp of MMD for a little kick. That seems like a bit much. Maybe half that to start?

              I would just start with a little and keep tasting and adding as necessary it until it is right.

            I add crushed red pepper to mine, that I blend up to fine so it’s consistent with the other spices. It’s not cayenne spice but does add nicely with cayenne. Or chile de arbol.
