Ingredient Fun Fact: Aleppo pepper is a unique chili pepper that is grown in Syria and Turkey. Also known as the Halaby pepper, it starts as pods, which ripen to a burgundy colour, and then are semi-dried, de-seeded, then crushed or coarsely ground. This unique pepper is a highly desirable variety of chilli, popular for its warm, fruity flavour and mild chilli bite. To accompany the rub and give it the big kick of heat, we have incorporated Bird's Eye chili which weighs in at 100,000 Scoville units. Also know as a Thai chili, this spicy pepper is commonly used throughout Ethipoia and Southeast Asia bring a real punch to any dish!
Name: What's a Feedlot without a Heatwave? Those hot Texas summers bring consistent heat coming in at over 40 degrees for months at a time. Between the spice, the colour of the rub and those long hot summers, we couldn't think of a better name.
