Ancho, chipotle and regular chili powders didn't work in this recipe; the flavors tasted off. We liked New Mexico or California chili powders. If you can’t find them, both are sold as dried, whole chilies that can be ground. Or simply leave it out and increase the paprika to ¼ cup. Fresno chilies are fresh red chilies similar in size and shape to jalapeños but with pointy tips; if they are unavailable, fresh cherry peppers work well, too. For a smokier flavor, we liked adding apple, cherry or hickory wood to the fire.
