    Flat Iron Pepper Company

    I've been wanting to try one or two of their products. one being their Dark and Smoky blend. I can see grinding that in a coffee grinder and subbing it for recipes and rubs that call for ancho. Does anyone have any experience with them?

    I bought a big selection of their products a few months back. The Dark and Smoky is good. I have both the peppers and the rub. Haven't used the rub yet. The UC Biber is great. The Asian Red and Four Pepper blends are both also awesome but pack quite a punch, so moderation is required with them.

      Thanks for your input Jim! Let me know how you like the rub. I saw that and it looks interesting. I figured I'd pulverize the dark and smoky flakes then use them in the MMD rub. I am a sucker for peppers and the actual flavor they bring to food.

    I got the four pepper blend, the green one, and dark and smoky. The dark and Smokey is almost empty and the others are about half full. Get the grinder if you can it really changes things

      Hulagn1971 not really, it doesn’t use a burr to grind it uses a rotating blade.

    Yea, kinda familiar with their stuff.

    All good. Rub is nice kick. 4 pepper is intense. My goto is the Hatch. I put it on everything.

        When I grew Reapers I would dehydrate some and grind them up, Reaper Dust, I called it. It goes a looooong way.
        Oh if you have a dehydrator to do this. Don’t do it in the house.

      Flat Iron is fantastic. I love all the ones I’ve tried but the dark and smoky blend is by far my favorite.

        Agree about the grinder. These are all much hotter than using your typical store bought chili pepper powder, and the grinder takes it up another notch. If you like heat (and I do), these are a must have. I have a bottle of everything they offer in my kitchen, and a backup of most of them.

          i have tried the asian reds (really kicks up my asian dishes, too much for kids and borderline for the wife), the sweet heat is great(perfect for pizza), the green chile one is a good all around pepper nice heat but not too much, and i love the dark and smokey.

          dark and smokey is great on top of a fried egg, add a couple of shakes to your butter\oil while its heating up then add a shake to the top of the egg after you flip it.

            RichieB turned me on to Flatiron Pepper Company last year and I got hooked on their UCBiber blend, which I use instead of pepper, often, when the "salt and pepper to taste" part of a recipe rolls around. It's fantastic.

            They offer it in special runs, and I always stock up. klflowers tipped me off about the last UC Biber run, thank goodness, because my stock was running dangerously low.

            I've got 4 other flavors as well: : Asian, Hatch, Dark and Smokey, 4 Pepper Blend.

            The Flatiron Pepper Co. grinder is a must. Love that boost of flavor that it provides. I must learn to take off the cap, though, before I start grinding away. I bet I forget that 4 times out of 5.

            They now offer "Mild Editions" of most of the blends, so your family might like the Mild Edition of the Asian Blend, Sam6687 . You may convert them yet.

              Just give it time, Murdy . It will be offered again, at least that's how it has been in the past. It goes pretty quickly.

              I think I read in an email they have a tough time processing the uc biber because it has a high moisture content or something. Could be making that up. They do a limited release now and again
