I'm a bonafide hot headed, pepper junkie, everything I eat has to have some kind of heat and spice to it. Usually in the form of my own cayenne/salt mix that I've used for years, I put it on literally everything, it's rare for me to even reach for the standard s&p anymore.

I've had my own pepper garden for the past few years as well, usually sticking with basics; habaneros, jalapenos and cayennes. I've always got one or two other strains growin as well like, tabasco, thai-dragon or datil. This year I threw in a 'Sport' pepper, big in Louisiana, it's kind of between a jalapeno and tabasco pepper, good flavor and a balanced heat. I usually take my habanero's, slice them in quarters, spread em out on big cookie sheet and put them in the oven at about 210 with the door cracked for about 5 hours, this dries em out real good and slightly toasts the habaneros which brings out the little bit of natural sugar in the pepper to point where you can taste it. I throw all these in a blender and make a real good and fine shake, very hot, unique and great flavor.

I've experimented with my own hot sauces as well, once accidentally making a batch that rivaled the commercial standard style's like texas-pete, franks red-hot, louisana, ect... I'll never be able to duplicate it though, it was a combo of 7 or 8 different peppers pureed with tomato paste and the brine from 2 quarts of homemade pickled tobacco peppers. I ended up with over a gallon of it, family and friends drank it up in no time.

Not long after that batch, I set out to make the hottest sauce I could with no regard for flavor. I had a couple uncommonly hot plants of thai-dragons and tabasco peppers that year, that were dangerous, or as my uncle put it... would "knock you d!#k off!". These are very high yielding plants so I had a ton of these little firecrackers and nothin to do with em. My brother was on a health kick at the time and had just bought a brand new nice and shiny $200 juicer. I put about 4 pounds of these peppers through it, which originally went in as bright, almost florescent colors of red, orange and yellow... what came out of that juicer was straight, black, concentrated death with a faint, green, pulsating glow that could only be explained as some kind of liquid-nuclear radioactive luminescence. When me and my bro stuck our heads over the cup to get a first look at this stuff, something happened we weren't counting on... Simply inhaling the fumes coming off this stuff set our lungs on fire, it was on par with inhaling mace. At that point instinctive cautionary rejection set in and I quickly poured the demon brew down the sink (which has never clogged since). After our eyes quit watering and noses quit running, we both took in a big sigh of relief and had a good laugh, you know one of those 'holysh!t, I can't believe we just survived that' kind of laughs.

...Then I made a huge mistake, I took a nice warm wet rag with my bare hands and began to clean up the good bit of spillage in and around the juicer, finished cleaning, wrung and rinsed the rag out and set down for some tv. About twenty minutes later I began to notice a little tingle over my hands, which soon erupted into all out scorching hellfire. The demon brew juice, thanks to the warm water had soaked into the deepest trenches of every pore from my wrists down to the tips of my fingers, and there was nothing I could do, but sit and wait for it to end. Now I'm a pepper connoisseur, this was not new to me, it happens all the time after handling cut peppers, but it's usually minor and only lasts a few minutes, even with habaneros. This lasted for 4 excruciating hours, I tried everything, successions of hot and cold water to rinse my pores out, baking soda to dry them out, nothing worked. When I was about 17, I blew my hand up with a large mortar firework, suffered 3rd degree burns over my entire hand, had to do muscular therapy, the works... This is exactly what that felt like, it hit and matched that high water mark of pain. I can't even imagine what it would've tasted like. It would've been legitimately dangerous and foolish to try, but still, I kind of regret pouring it all down the sink, I'd love to have a small dropper vial of this stuff, just as a conversation piece.

This concoction, "6am" produced by Blair's is the world hottest and purist capsicum extract at 16 million SHUs (scoville heat units)...

...to put that in perspective, the hottest of jalapenos rate at about 20,000 SHUs, Habaneros at about 750,000 SHUs, and law enforcement grade mace at about 4 million SHUs. If I had to guess I'd probably put my stuff between 5 - 6 million SHUs. Only limited quantities of Blair's 6am were ever produced (also in granular form), you can catch the 2.5 ounce bottle on ebay every now and again usually going for over $400.00. One drop of this stuff will make an entire pot of chili or soup, almost inedible. I'd love to own a bottle one day.

One thing I don't understand is the whole ghost pepper craze, people go on and on about their heat, but there's far hotter peppers out there that don't taste like a dead skunk soaked in kerosene. Damn things taste like lighter fluid, I don't get it.

Now to what really inspired this whole thread...

My best friend and cousin sent me a text the other night goin on and on about this habanero beer he found, naturally I drove nearly an hour out of my way to grab myself a sixer of this stuf...

I quit drinking regularly about 5 years ago, and up until last night had only had a couple beers in the past year or so, and after I tried this stuff, I was considering becoming a full blown alcoholic again. Great taste, great heat, totally awesome beer. So I got 6 down pretty quick last night and immediately proceeded to make one of my nuclear pizzas, which included; diced habaneros, cayennes, sport peppers, whole jalapenos, jalapeno shredded cheese, my own habanero powder mixed in with the crust, Blair's 'Beyond Death' sauce mixed in with the pizza sauce, pepperoni and of course my cayenne/salt mix to top it all off.

...This, combined with a late night dose of melatonin, created dreams that would leave Rob Zombie crying like a p@#$y, curled up in the fetal position and bobbing his head in the corner of a padded cell. I have spent the entire day and this entire thread, going to and from the john, slowly flushing this painful nightmare away...


So are you a pepperjunkie? What's the hottest thing you've ever eaten?

Oh yeah, I forgot to mention that my brother went to use the juicer a few days later after we cleaned it out. It was ruined, everything you put through it was too hot to drink. He took it to the dump a few days later, I had to by him a new one.

Awesome!

I think the hottest thing I ever ate was one of those scorpion peppers a few years ago. It was like eating a glowing hot coal. it went well with coffee.

On a related note, I just got done whipping up my first batch of hot sauce this year.

I didn't eat these peppers, but a couple years ago my mom had some in her garden that I picked for her. They grew upwards, and so my arms were all up in those suckers. After I was done, my arms started itching then burning. Later that night I noticed that the tattoo on my back was really raised, almost swollen and itching/burning too. I finally figured it must have been from the peppers. I refused to try those after that happened from just picking them.

Amazing story. The way I see it, you're lucky to be alive or rather at least lucky to still have fully functional hands.

Hottest I've had was a Carolina Reaper.
I was salivating uncontrollably, crying tears, and dripping snot for a good 5 minutes.
What a rush.

I've inadvertently eaten caustic soda...beat that! I still have portions of my tongue absent of taste buds 30 years later.

Some kind of pepper my aunt grew when I was young. It was called bullhorn I think. It was red and twisted.Ugly. I realized why later, when she brought some over for us to try. This pepper should not be that hot. One bite was like a 2 mt nuclear blast . Tears streaming , sinuses drained , blisters in mouth and tongue. Never before nor after had I had that kinda heat.
Too late my aunt told me you are supposed to cook it in chili to tone it down . Do not eat straight.

A geologist i work with has made a strain of ghost peppers that are absolutely stupid hot. You can feel your mouth swell (or so it feels) the second they hit your tongue.
He has been growing them for years now.
Now those were by far the hottest peppers i have ever shaken over my chili. And like you i pour spice on everything.

Funny this thread was made. Just today I got a hold of a jug of Carolina Reaper dust. 1 lbs of Scorpion Peppers.

From my garden I roasted 1 lbs each of :
Habs
Thai peppers (red)
Jalapeno peppers
Fresh Chives
2 large diced up tomatoes

Used 2 heads of roasted garlic
2 cups franks red hot
2 cups sriracha sauce.
2 chopped up onions
1 cup of the Carolina reaper dust
Along with the 1 pound of scorpion chili

Cooked and reduced.... not to long to make the peppers to mushy.

I had a bowl earlier. It was really spicy. And that says a lot considering I'm a pepper junkie. Adding the other peppers actually gave it flavor for me. But I must admit I'm feeling it for real RIGHT NOW!


Forgot. 2 cups water to help with reduction. And 2 table spoons of Ghost Chili salt. And yes the Scorpion is now the hottest thing I ate.

Great post. I honestly never thought I'd enjoy reading about peppers so much. You're a damn fine storyteller.
I don't have much of a tolerance for hot stuff, but I quite enjoy the subtler spices. You're a damn maniac, I applaud you.

Oddly enough a repressed memory has come to the surface.
A chef friend of mine offered me a roasted pepper a few years ago. I thought it was a sweet baby bell so i popped the whole thing in my mouth.
Unfortunately for me this sweet baby bell was a larger than golfball sized habañero. I ate and swallowed most of it but kept chewing the last third.
my chef friend turned to me and asked how i liked it. I said. Pretty hot. He looked at his assistant and said in a russian expletive laden expression "hes a f'n animal"
I kept chewing this thing which burned with the force of a thousand supernovas.
I then began hiccuping uncontrollably and spit out the magma like wad.
This was all on an empty stomach.
Half an hour later.
i was with my other chef friend when the lava sauce passed my stomach and hit what i guess was my duodenum.
fire. Nuclear Holocaust in my innards.
he laughed. His wife wanted to call an ambulance.
he laughed some more. That's what friends are for.
Lesson learned.

Lol... sounds like my friends. Always using me as a human litmus test. It's probably why I've built such a tolerance for the extreme spicy supreme. Got to be honest though. There is a rush/high I get eating raw peppers. Makes me want to run a Marathon.

Hey everyone! This stuff has been my go to as of late. Need a snack?

Thankfully the ghost pepper sauce at our farmers market that uses the word insane on the bottle, must have been tamed somehow, and probably only a few of the seeds put in. I doubt the seeds you see really are ghost peppers, because though my fire breathing dragon son, who likes the hot, says it is hot, just find it medium zesty.

I used to like hot foods, but now prefer jalepeno's, and chilli's, but not habenero's, thats much too hot for me. And now I only cut into the seeds a bit on a jalepeno, when chopping them for taco's or burrito's, or crackers and cheese. I only include 1/4 of the seeds in my cooking and chuck the rest.

Too much seeds on a jalepeno, or a couple chopped up in chili or spaghetti, like the olden days, now gives me the hiccups!
