Glad to hear the positive feedback about the topic, I will look into the manufacturers (Starfield Lion) instructions as to proper removal of super heated gear. I'd imagine it would be similar across the board but maybe not. From what I've seen so far the sequence of removal isn't that different from...

The packaged taco seasoning is good but has so much crap in it. Chilli powder, cayenne, garlic powder, salt, pepper does the trick. Add some fresh guacamole on...
