MessageHey Jim...that sounds like an interesting idea...the dried flakes.  But 
did you try fresh chopped peppers?  Did that work at all?  I'm just curious.  
Also, there's a "bird cookbook" called My Recipes are for the Birds, by Irene 
Cosgrove.  It's easy to get (I got mine at Barnes&Nobles) and has lots of suet 
ideas and recipes, amongst other things.

    I found John Coe's suet recipe on the web. Maybe it's better to make the 
stuff at home than to go to the store to get it, particularly if the store is 
over 10 miles away. 

    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.

    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?
