I did another batch three weeks ago, Keilbasa (Eldon's), and this time I added 1 tsp of ghost pepper to the ten lb batch. Tried the first stick on Saturday, and it was outstanding! You could feel a little bite of the pepper right off the bat, but it wasn't overwhelming at all. For me personally (and my two buddies that were with me), we all thought the batch was perfect. I had some from my first batch (3/4 tsp to ten lb) to compare, and that 1/4 tsp more definitely was noticeable.
