There ya go! In addition to the above I will also use some chipotle peppers, (smoked jalapenos) finely diced, just got to be careful with those things when feeding kids and old folks. I also make my own chili powder by smoking and drying poblano peppers and then grinding them in a coffee grinder. I smoke them with mesquite and they turn out pretty good and pungent, adding a lot of flavor to a rub or a sauce.
