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
