HELP! Any "firemen" out there?

I just whipped up Cat's baby back rib rub, except I used fresh ground tellicherry pepper and instead of chipotle hot pepper I substituted cayenne. I went ahead and rubbed the ribs for later this afternoon. I took a little taste of the rub and I love it - now for the problem - that little taste is still with me an hour later. I know a shot of milk will temper the taste buds and cool them off, but I'm afraid the ribs are going to be much too hot for my wife tonight. Is there any suggestions on how to tame this fire short of scraping off the rub on the portion I think she might eat? Thanks! signed, On fire in Illinois

    Me thinks by the time you cook it, it will be much less spicy. Just cook em!!

    Nature Boy,[p]Yea, you are probably right. Anyway, he can always make "reservations" if the ribs don't work out.[p]Tim
  • RRP,
    You might think about spraying ALOT of apple juice on the ribs. That should tame them if not they should aleast be hot and sweet. By the way put a pate of butter in your mouth it will postpone the pain

    Great suggestion. I haven't tried the apple juice thing, but a lot of people like it. Must add some nice sweetness.[p]Man, I paniced when I saw the heading for the post about firemen...glad the question was about the spicy kind of fire instead! Don't need no 'mergency room visits dangit![p]NB
