Heat Up My Chili

ChiliFilter: When I make chili, I use cayenne pepper and red pepper powders and sauces, respectively. But the 'bite' of the heat comes a second or two after the chili hits my mouth and is rather metallic, versus right away and nice and warm and full like chili you get at a restaurant. What's the difference? What ingredients can I add to bring the heat forward earlier, and make it warmer and less "bite"-y?
