  2. Add chilli flakes and mix well
  3. Use as required and store any remaining rub in an airtight container
Notes
The heat of the chilli flakes that you use will be according to personal taste. Using flakes like Aleppo, Gochogaru and smoked Jalapenos will give you a mild result.

Using hot flakes like Birds-eye, Serrano’s or Cayenne may mean that you want to tone down how much you want to use. When working with the hotter chillies, start with a teaspoon. You can always add more when you serve the ribs but certainly won’t be able to remove the heat if you have put in too much
