REVIEW: Volcanic Peppers’ Volcano Dust 2

We have yet another spicy seasoning/rub up for review. We assembled the bestest team we could muster-up under the circumstances of not being able to get anyone really good to do it. Hey, you roll with what you got and hope for the best when the dice are released. Just kidding of course. We are so happy with our review squad, and their expert opinions. Up for this review we have the one and only Scott Roberts from, newcomer Chef Jeff of Spanky’s Shenanigans in Leesburg, VA and Steve Smith from

Here is a little background for you all taken from their website:

Volcanic Peppers is an Omaha based company providing fresh chile peppers to locals including a variety of habanero, cayenne and the famous ghost or bhut jolokia peppers. We also create several blends of chile powder including Volcano Dust 2™ which is a combination of several dried and or smoked peppers. Volcano Dust adds aroma, heat and flavor to any food. We will also provide custom chile powder blends for food establishments that want to add that extra something to their spicy recipes. We will visit and find your needs and customize a blend that works for your specific purpose and then provide that on a regular basis as needed. Volcanic Peppers strives to provide the highest quality and freshest products to you. Please enjoy responsibly as all products sold by Volcanic Peppers are hot.

I am not sure when this started, but I noticed in checking out Volcanic Peppers Facebook page, they have a shopping page where you can buy their product. Facebook has a shopping cart too. When did this phenomenon start? Check out their Facebook shopping experience from the link at the bottom.

    That looks good! I love powders, dust, rubs, powders, whatever you want to call it.

    I just made some nachos and put this all over the chips before I added all of the other nacho stuff. They turned out really good. The smokiness of the ghost pepper came through really well among the other ingredience. The heat level was high. I can still feel that warm feeling in my belly. They did a great job on this product.

    Thanks Steve, I’m glad you are enjoying it. I like the idea of putting it on the chips before the other toppings. The smokiness you are picking up on really is the signature of Volcano Dust. We slow smoke some of the habanero to add that aroma. Thanks again for the review.

    It was a joke of course. I love all my reviewers even the dysfunctional ones.

    I tried integrating the Volcano Dust 2 powder in with some chili/queso sauce and applied that to a couple of half smokes! Wow!!
    Anyone out there with this product should definitely try this at home!!

    Let me say when I was shooting this video with Chef Jeff, he made me this amazing turkey and bacon sammich with this raspberry jalapeno sauce that was off the hook. I forgot the kind of bread, but it made the sammich.

    Queso is one of my favorite uses. Try it in a cream sauce or dip like ranch or sour cream based too, it compliments well.

    The sandwich you had was our fastest selling menu item, “The Raider”. House smoked turkey, pepper jack cheese, red onion, bacon and jalapeno/raspberry jelly served on a grilled jalapeno cornbread bread. Spread the word! I defy anyone not to love this sandwich!!

    :_thumbsup: There was mention of this going on salads and I must tell you that it is AWESOME on them! This Dust is amazingly good when it comes into contact with any kind of cheese, from the rich gooey pizza slice, to the light feta cheese on your salad…it just works! It can be held in hand by both healthy and heavy eaters because it has no salt, and made with fresh peppers, all the while having a bold, spicy, and BUFF flavor! Try Volcano Dust! It’s good stuff dudes

    Hmmm….not laughing here. Better keep your job at the Post Office.

    Keep talking like that about that smoke flavor, and you are going to get another customer real soon! :_redpepper:

    Sounds good RJ….Mention the review when you check out and I will throw in an extra sample of your choosing.

    It was a joke? Now you tell me. I stopped reading at the end of that sentence out of anger and immediately stuck pins in my Buddah voodoo doll.

    No wonder my armpits were bleeding. 😕
