As I mentioned in my home made tabasco recipe thread, I am not seeing any ill effects from eating hot peppers. My health continues to improve. As Raster has said, this may not be a good idea for most folks and if you do try it, then please test a small amount.
For my BBQ recipe I use stiva for the sweetener, There are options. Also, I add EVOO to the sauce which I should have mentioned in the original recipe.
My favorite is to take a cornish game hen, split it and then put it in a bag with my spice rub mix. I shake it well then toss it on my hot grill. Remember to oil the gill first:)
Then I take my spicy BBQ sauce and brush it on when close to done. SOOO good.
