While I like very spicy foods, I don't like them to the detriment of enjoying one of my favorite pastimes (eating). I've planted a habanero this year but will probably only use it for pickles....I might toss one in a homemade salsa. I just don't see the attraction in this ritual self torture.

I've often wondered when it became manly to eat really hot and spicy food?  It must be an American thing. I don't see Mexicans, Thai or people from India giving a shiate about how spicy you want your food to be.

Thunderboy: Wouldn't drinking oil (yuck) just make it far worse?  I thought alcohol was the best choice for that sort of thing.


Nope, alcohol is the worst thing you can do, even worse than water.

See, the molecule that makes peppers hot (capsaicin) dissolves in alcohol.  While at first this makes it sound like a great idea, dissolve and flush it out, what it really does is applies an even coat of the stuff all over the inside of your mouth and your tongue, which means there is no escape.

Trust me, I grow ghost peppers and t.scorps and make vodka infusions with them.  You can't taste the heat at all in the shot until after it evaporates off, and then its full out thermonuclear war in your mouth.

No, I'm not dumb enough to drink this stuff myself (other than the first time), I take it to parties and find the biggest drunk guy in there and tell him he's not man enough to do a shot of it.  Invariably they say it was nothing, then about 60 seconds later they're begging for the sweet release of death.

I think alcohol is okay, but you'd need a good amount of it. Milk is supposed to be best because of the casein. (I think.) It binds with the pepper's oils and carries them away from your tongue. So, really, what I personally think would be best is to take a white Russian, add vanilla ice cream, and blend it into a milkshake.

Also, I seem to remember something about capsaicin being fat soluble, so oil might help some? Still rather go with the milkfat, though.
 
2013-04-11 10:10:05 AM
I've always wondered if one can truly "hurt" oneself doing these things. Discomfort, tears, horrible pain, yes...but can you harm your body (internal burns, etc)??

I eat a lot of hot food, and I've never had a problem. Also, the only thing that makes my rear end burn is jalapenos and crushed red pepper. I can eat the most facemelting Thai heat and never feel a thing on the back end. I am Indian though, and was raised on spicy curries....

I'm in the same boat. The hottest thing I've got going in the garden is my chile pequin bush, which is a nice little blend of heat and flavor. (To me. To someone who finds jalapenos painful, my pequins would be incapacitating.)

I don't get the appeal of just heat. I want some taste out of the deal, or it's pointless.

I put some of that shiat in my chili on accident.  It was just some tomators with habaneros and I thought, 'why not'.   took a spoon of chili, as normal, and ate it.  My mouth was on fire.  It was awesome.

The best part is that nobody else in the house would eat it, so I didnt have to worry about coming home and finding my food gone.

A bowl of hot assed chili while watching TV lets you know you are still alive.  The Matrix would have just made it taste like chicken.

Ahh, CSB time. Not anything like a Bhut Jolokia or scorpion, but one time a friend of mine goaded a pompus asshole into eating a Thai bird chile while we were at dinner. I was across the table from him so I got to see the whole thing. He confidently chewed the thing with gusto, saying, "That's not so bad." Then his face froze, he muttered, "That's the most odd--" and his face turned bright red. I'd never actually seen that happen before, it was hilarious. So was the sweat beading up on his forehead. Then he knocked over the soy sauce scrabbling for his water. Good times, good times.

people have different tolerances.  as do body parts.  for example, i was eating boiled crawfish last weekend at the best place on earth to eat boiled crawfish (cajun claws).  the heat level is perfect for the taste (not too hot), but somehow my hands did not agree.  they were on fire for hours.  some people call it capsicin poisoning.  all i know was that the heat level was perfect for eating, but not for touching.

then, of course, was the next day.  not a good day.  the heat level has not good for final expurgation.

It's not as bad as you would think.  You know how sometimes after you vomit you feel like you have been purged and everything is all better now?  It's like that, only 100x stronger.  So it's like, "uh oh, I'm gonna be sick...HURRRCK...ahhhh, much better...man, that looks crazy...I'm gonna go wander off in that field now!"

Ah, makes sense.  I don't drink, so I've never tested it for myself.

Also makes sense, I suppose.  If you drank enough to actually "flush it out", then great.  But now you're unconscious.  I've always gone with milk/bread which seems to help.  I guess i was thinking that swigging some EVOO would simply accomplish what not enough alcohol would - distribute it evenly, only without the evaporation.

Whatever, I'm going to get some tacos.

At this point, a wing coated in Daves Insanity Sauce has a bit of bite to it, but it is certianly tollerable.  Shouldn't be long now.

Over time, you do gain a tolerance for spicy food.  Avoid spicy food for a solid month, and you lose most of that tolerance.  It's not that hard to scale up to super spicy stuff if you take it at a reasonable pace.

Back when I was eating spicy food pretty regularly, I used to hose down a sub sandwich in daves ultimate insanity sauce, like you'd put ketchup on a burger, and I'd do alright.  I had a jar of dried ghost peppers on my desk at work, and my last day there - since no one had taken the 'eat one and see if you die' challenge, I had one.  It was miserably hot, but it only lasted about 5 minutes and then I was fine.

I also got some 8 million scoville extract, made chili with it.  Pretty much the hottest thing I have ever eaten in my life.  I had a spoonful of the chili and I was drooling and spitting for the next 10 minutes - but after 8 hours of slow cooking, it was much more mild.

Drink black tea to neutralize the burn... seriously.

When I was a kid my mom and step dad brought me to this Thai place. He and I order some noodles that had these spicy black pepper thingies in it. The waiter was very insistent that we don't eat the peppers. Well my step dad who was a complete hard ass (he once crushed his hand in between a houseboat and a dock and barely grunted) decides to chomp down on one and start chewing. After about 20 seconds he says it's not hot at all so I stupidly chomped on one of mine. Well the delayed reaction started hitting him and he turned beet red and started sweating like crazy. Shortly after my mouth started burning like nothing I've ever experienced. The waiter sees us and rushes over as we're guzzling water and he says to stop drinking the water and slam some tea (which was already on the table). Sure enough it got the burning down to a tolerable level rather quickly.

Yeah I puked up KFC too, the second time I dropped acid. It was terrible but very relieving. I ate some peanut butter toast a couple hours later and I honestly at that time felt like it was the best thing I ever did for my body. Ripples of joy radiating from my belly.

How so? There are quite a few benefits to having a tolerance for spicy food- namely, it opens up a lot more cuisines to you. It's kind of sad to think that some people will never experience the full spectrum of, say, Thai food, just because it has some spice.

Only if you're allergic. Otherwise it's just severe discomfort, and those last two words can't be overly emphasized.

quietwalker: Over time, you do gain a tolerance for spicy food.  Avoid spicy food for a solid month, and you lose most of that tolerance.  It's not that hard to scale up to super spicy stuff if you take it at a reasonable pace.

Back when I was eating spicy food pretty regularly, I used to hose down a sub sandwich in daves ultimate insanity sauce, like you'd put ketchup on a burger, and I'd do alright.  I had a jar of dried ghost peppers on my desk at work, and my last day there - since no one had taken the 'eat one and see if you die' challenge, I had one.  It was miserably hot, but it only lasted about 5 minutes and then I was fine.


A few years back the NYPD noted pepper spray wasn't as effective at controlling certain minority groups that have a cultural tradition of spicy food.

arguably racist, but that makes perfect sense. capsaicin is like alcohol, it rapidly perfuses all tissues. mace in the eyes is only a little different from mace in the mouth.

I'd always heard that sugar helps.  The Scoville scale is based on how much sugar and water is needed to make the heat undetectable.

We are working our way up to the super hot wing level.  There is one bar in particular that we want to get on the wall of fame for and we thing we are getting close.

At this point, a wing coated in Daves Insanity Sauce has a bit of bite to it, but it is certianly tollerable.  Shouldn't be long now.

Deliciousness... however spicy for the sake of spicy isn't my bag. Sriracha is wicked hot but it has other stuff in  it that adds flavor around the burning. Also really bland stuff like noodles or rice are more interesting with some kick.

Sadly I can't eat the crazy hot stuff like I used to. I've got one curve in my intestines that has an ulcer or something and once the spice hits it I'm in excruciating pain. Especially with cheapo chemical spices like in cheap jerky or processed burritos.

Best cold remedy for me is a big bowl of hot curry chicken Pho. Gives me the leaks but burns out the face slime.

I bought a bottle of Dave's Ultimate Insanity Hot sauce a few years back.   One is supposed to use a single drop of this stuff to season foods, and even then it's pretty hot.

One summer day my wife decided to BBQ some burgers on the grill, and without thinking poured the entire bottle of Ultimate Insanity in with a bottle of BBQ sauce and used it to cook the burgers.

The kids were NOT impressed!   I was able to get down a burger with some discomfort, but no one else in the family could.

I ate a whole habanero once. It was not pleasant but I did it cause some dudes said I was a pussy if I didn't. You just can't make the burning stop. You just can't. I'd do it again though, it was a good laugh and it can't actually hurt you.

Are you arguing that it can or can not hurt you?

Capsaicin  isn't what does the harm, it's your bodies reaction to it that is the danger. the heat that you feel is a false trigger of a pain receptor. Capsaicin itself is very useful as an analgesic, blood glucose regulator, and anti-inflammatory.

How so? There are quite a few benefits to having a tolerance for spicy food- namely, it opens up a lot more cuisines to you. It's kind of sad to think that some people will never experience the full spectrum of, say, Thai food, just because it has some spice.


Or maybe you're like me and despise sharing food with people. I've upped my spice tolerance simply to punish people that ask to sample my food at restaurants.

At the Austin Hot Sauce Festival in 2006 I tried a little dollop of Dave's Insanity Sauce on a toothpick, just to experience it. It was pretty damn hot, but it actually tastes pretty good before the flustering began.

That's one of the reasons why people eat hot food. It's a way of experiencing pain that causes no harm, so you can see what exactly you can take. It also brings the endorphin rush later.

Optimus Primate: I've always wondered if one can truly "hurt" oneself doing these things. Discomfort, tears, horrible pain, yes...but can you harm your body (internal burns, etc)??


Yes.  Well, probably.  I used to work for Sigma-Aldrich (chemicals and laboratory supplies).  They make pure capsacin for analytical purposes.  When I worked there, one of the manufacturing folks broke some rules and left capsacin in the cap of its jar; when the QC tech (also breaking rules) opened the jar, the powder fell out and onto his bare skin.  The result was second-degree burns and a trip to the emergency room.

Obviously pure, solid capsacin is not going to be the same as a pepper, but concentrate it enough and it can cause damage.

Ehh, just eat Indian food if you want manly spicy.



Actually, its funny you mention that.  My coworker got me into eating Thia food.  The first time I ordered it hot, the second time I said extra hot and it still wasn't hot enough.  The third time, I convinced my GF (who won't even Chinese food) to go just because I told her it would be really hot.  We both ordered it Super hot and it still wasn't even close to hot enough.  We asked for the spice rack and dumped about a tablespoon of the powder on it and it tasted better.

I guess next time I'm just going to have to say, "I'm going to go into the kitchen and call the cook a little girl if he he can't make it hot enough for me." and see if that helps.  My guess is that they are worried they are going to kill me.  [since we are both as white as they come.]

As for why, I'm not exactly sure how it started.  She is half my age and I was shocked she could handle hot food.  Since we both really liked hot food it eventually became a challenge between us to see who could handle the hotest and here we are a few years later.

I ordered Trinidad Scorpions and Giant Ghost pepper seeds today, I'm hoping I can figured out how to grow them.

If you're a whitefella, the only way to get hot food from an Indian or thai joint is to develop a long standing relationship with a good restaurant and get to know the owner/manager. It will take about 3-4 tries before they believe you when you ask for actual hot food and another 3-4 spotty efforts before the cook believes you.

Stick with indian food, since a big part of the cuisine is to be able to dial the hot up and down at will in every dish. Thai food can be spicy, but nobody eats hot like the indians do. this is a known fact.

Sichhuan food is good too, and the chinese DGFA what color you are, everyone gets the same dish and the same hots. You can actually insult he Sichan chef by asking for more hots, I don't recommend it. they take flavor and balance very seriously.

I'm pretty sure you are spot on.  The funny part is, my buddy who takes me is a long standing customer, but he doesn't like it that hot.  I never really said much about the lack of heat until this last time.  She then realized that I dumped a quarter of her little glass jar of hot powder on it... and then says... oh you do like it really hot.  So, at least she has acknowledged my desire for more heat so I'm pretty sure next time will be the one that makes me dump out hot lava the next day.

You farkers are stuck up. Food prudes.

I ate a ghost chili in Las Vegas when I went to visit my grandmother a few years back. She told me I had to try it. I've always loved spicy foods and grams eats jalepenos out of the jar and the drinks the brine when it's all finished.

I thought I could handle it, but the burning is incredible. My tongue felt covered in the menthol that comes out of menthol cigarettes. At the same time my lips were buzzing and my spit was so hot that swallowing it made me start coughing. My throat had that blood-pulsating-through-it feel. The resturaunt guy who fed it to me had a ball. Then I watched my grandmother eat one and she coughed twice, had her eyes water up, went out for a cigarette and came back looking like a rose.

Later that night I felt like I was going through withdrawals or something. My stomach felt heavy and swirling. I took some kind of painfulish beer shiats the next day. It was a tough experience, but I'd do it again.

I'd definitely try the scorpion if it's the hottest.

Back in 1998 I had an encounter with Dave's Insanity Sauce. Never heard of it before, thought it was bluster.
Ruined my french fries and I spent five minutes in the kitchen sink running water over my tongue.

Last year I bought a bottle willingly. I thought it was too garlicky. The big difference being that I've broken my pain and panic responses.

Looks like a good excuse to make a pitcher of white russians with vanilla ice cream.

And add me to the "you have to know the cook" crowd if you want really hot Chinese food. A family friend cooked the BEST (and hottest) Hunan pork I ever had. Now he's not cooking anymore, I've switched to Chilli Chicken or Chilli Mushroom from one of the local-ish Indian places.

Some the commercial sauces I've tried are blindingly hot...but taste more like something you'd use in spray form with tear gas mixed in.

theorellior: I think it's hilarious that the capsicum family of plants has evolved this specific defense to keep mammals away from their fruit so birds would spread the seeds, but it turns out there's a species of mammal that actually likes having its mouth burned and has spread those seeds further than any bird could have.

A bunch of us ate at a BBQ joint in KC Kansas years ago. My buddy Sam, who is mexican & loves hot stuff, ordered a hot pickle off the menu. He gave me a slice after he just popped his in his mouth. It was too late when his eyes bugged out & his jaw dropped. Don't know what they used but it had a real horseradish flavor. I've never done crack, but this must be what it is like. It was like an ice cream head rush x 10. It went down your spine even & froze you up.

Indian food really isn't that spicy, even in India.  I went there for work this past year and as whitey everybody kept asking of the food was spicy (it was served from the same dishes they were eating from).  It had some heat but was nothing over bearing.  Sadly the guy I with couldn't handle it as he was sweating bullets.  One of the chefs eventually started making it less spicy for us because him :-(

/Also, Texans are huge sissy's when it comes to spicy food.  At so many restaurants they "warn me" because I'm whitey but most of them are barely hotter then a Bell Pepper.  Oooh, a jalapeno, so spicey!

mstang1988: What Would Whoopty Do: Bubblegum 7 Pot?  I've never heard of it.


Bubblegum 7 Pot is apparently just a nickname made up by a chili grower for a Yellow 7 Pot crossed with a Red Moruga. The cap and the stem of the pepper are red like the pepper flesh, which I've heard is a recessive trait. The seeds seem to be sold out everywhere, probably due to the fact that the strain isn't stabilized yet.

Certainly sounds like horseradish.
That stuff gets its "heat" from a completely different chemical than hot peppers, and the sensation is much different.  I personally prefer the slower, sweat-inducing burn of chiles.  Horseradish is immediate and sharp, almost "prickly", and it gets up into your sinuses.  Compared to the warm feeling of capsaicin, horseradish is like getting poked with needles.  I'm not a fan.
