I can't make it too hot, my wife and boys won't eat it, if I do. They will be out of town for Thanksgiving. Maybe, I'll try a little in the brine this weekend and do another hotter one for T-Day, for me. If it works, it would be interesting to see what habaneros, chile tepin and chile pequin would do. Maybe a Southwest rub and some garlic & green chile mashed potatoes.
