Then the heat hit and took over but not as strong as I thought it would be. After about 5 seconds I did detect what some may consider a bitterness but it was slight to me and not unpleasent at all (I like bitter I might add). After 10 seconds the after taste was quite good with more of the heat and sweet pronounced than anything else. I can definitely use this as a stand alone - probably better for beef, and as a mix with something like Simply Marvelous Sweet Seduction. It will be useful added to recipes as well.
I definitely do not regret getting four pouches.
This is a spot on description of the taste outta the pouch IMHO. My initial thought was celery salt, followed by sweet...and then a building warmth. The heat kinda builds steadily.
Made a rub butter with some Death Dust today (topped my tri-tip dinner with it). Tasting it with the butter...the sweet was way more pronounced. The citrus/celery element seemed lessened...but the wonderful, building, warmth was still there for sure.
Its good stuff. Ordered a couple more today (hopefully they're not all gone)...gotta get some more before they are.
