What an interesting article. I used to have lunch several times a week in California Tortilla, a DC centered chain for burritos. They have a "Wall
of Flame" with ~100 bottles of different hot sauces to sample. The hottest I found there was Dave's Hot Sauce. I could only tolerate drops of it.
But that got trumped. I was in a restaurant in Homestead, FL, called Puerto Vallarta with a couple of my sons and wife, and the chef/owner came out
at the end of the meal with a little stryrofoam cup with some clear liquid and onion slices in it. I tried a spoon and nearly died. I drank
everything at the table belonging to everyone and then demanded more. The owner wouldn't say what was in it.
By the way, isn't all hot pepper sauce capsicum-based, i.e., there are no other chemicals in peppers that cause the heat?
