Chileheads and pepper guzzlers, this one's for you. The episode of Heat Seekers, the Food Network program featuring celebrity chef Aaron Sanchez and Roger Mooking that was filmed in Kansas City last year, will be premiering tonight. The pair of spicy thrill seekers will take viewers to Zarda Bar-B-Q (11931 W. 87th St. Parkway), Thai Place (4130 Pennsylvania) and KC Smoke Burger (1610 W. 39th St.)

Sanchez, the celebrity chef who opened Mestizo in Leawood's Park Place last November, travels the country with co-host Mooking to find the spiciest foods in a given city, learn how the dishes are made and then sample them on camera. The show is a testament to the determination or stubbornness of man. It typically ends with someone crying.

If you want to play along at home (please cook with the windows open and the exhaust fan running), Food Network has recipes for the dishes featured: the "hottest Phad Thai on the planet" and Zarda Bar-B-Q's creeper beans and sauce. Zarda is rolling out the new creeper menu item at its Blue Springs and Lenexa locations tomorrow. There's no recipe for KC Smoke Burger's entry, a lamb and beef burger made with chili oil.

For those wondering about what other shows have made it to the small screen — TV Food Maps has a fairly comprehensive map with addresses and the show which featured a given restaurant. The Kansas City episode of Heat Seekers runs tonight at 7 p.m. and tomorrow morning at 3 a.m. on the Food Network.
