You can use capsicum powder, but be mighty careful. The stuff I tried floated around on me and was not a lot of fun. Also, the squirrels didn't seem to mind it all that much.

<x-tad-smaller>I am wondering how to get hot pepper in the suet. I am afraid that if I make John Coe's recipe, then squirrels will eat it all up. Wild Birds Unlimited told us that the squirrels will not eat hot pepper suet or plain suet, but the birds go for it like it was crazy or something. We tried both kinds. Squirrels gobble up the plain suet. However, they will not eat hot pepper suet but the birds will. However, this suet is about 20 miles from us on Midlothian Turnpike. No local place sells hot pepper suet; all they sell is what I call squirrel suet.</x-tad-smaller>

<x-tad-smaller>So I am wondering how to get hot pepper into John Coe's recipe. Can I just mix hot chilis into it? Or hot red pepper flakes?</x-tad-smaller>
