Maybe hard, but certainly not impossible! Years back, I still remember, I didn't stop to think to myself "man, that seems like a lot of hot peppers" and the first taste test from the pot sent me staggering! I did everything I could to calm it down but, even as someone who likes more heat than most, I still had batches in the freezer months later.Use whatever you have on hand. It's pretty hard to ruin a batch of chili.
Definitely try smoking the meat, I wouldn't worry about losing or trading away flavor.
