What Would Whoopty Do: I'm growing 12 strains of super hots this season including the Butch T from the article. Last season I got about 300 scorpions off of one Butch T plant. Also growing some Moruga Scorpions which are supposedly hotter. I'm on a waiting list to get seeds of this Bubblegum 7 Pot:  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yYemw_QJVlw

The brown peppers in the background are Chocolate Fataliis from two plants.


I bet you go through a lot of toilet paper.

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.

staypuft242: belome: My GF and I are trying to eat hotter and hotter things.  We can down BW3 Blazing Wings like they are nothing.
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.

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.

Seems like EVERY person in one of these videos has some new pepper and it is always the world's 'hottest'....
Guess I need to sit down and record myself drinking the world's hottest cup of coffee, while making faces, just to break up the monotony...

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.

Spicy foods can trigger a gall stone attack.

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.

Sometimes just being a jackass works.  I once implied at an Indian place that they couldn't make it hot enough for me--chef poked his head out of the kitchen to glare at me and then delivered a dish that I'm pretty sure was attempted homicide.

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.

What Would Whoopty Do: Bubblegum 7 Pot?  I've never heard of it.  Brain strains and many others but never the Bubblegum.  I've only got 4 superhots (more then 1 plant).  Moruga's, Butch-T's, Bhut's, and regular 7-pots.  Next year I'll do brain strains, douglah's, fatali.

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.

staypuft242: ..wonder if this would be good with hallucinogens .


I'd imagine that dropping some acid and ecstasy before eating one of these peppers covered in live bullet ants would be quite an experience.

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.
