Yeah, unfortunately there are 2 meanings of factoid. 1) false facts (“I just made this up”), and 2) mini facts, AKA trivia. Most folks I see use factoid to mean a bit of mostly useless knowledge. The usage seems to be changing over time. Kind of how most everyone and more and more folks here even call a single cell a battery. (Another factoid!)

All I know is my dog acts like she’s immune.

Speaking of factoids, the Ghost Pepper used to be the worlds hottest chili pepper, the new record belongs to the Carolina Reaper. Carolina Reaper is in the Guiness Book of World Records as the hottest, at some 2.2 million Scoville units on average. I am not as thrilled with the Reaper as I have been with Red Savina Habanero, due simply to the presence of more flavor from the weaker pepper in my experience. I am working on growing fresh Carolina Reaper for the distinction of having the fresh pepper to compare flavor to as we used to grow our own regular Habanero and really enjoyed the flavor. I see 10 blooms presently, remains to be seen if they come to fruition.

There is a Dragon Breath that is even hotter but it’s not released for public consumption and instead is being used to create medicines.

Edit: I should point out for those that have followed my pepper plant experience, this plant is indoors… our summer (typically very long) is too hot for the hottest chilli pepper apparently, this plant is growing under a Cree COB I built for the occasion and is now re-growing after I cut it back to about 2’ tall. It was up against the ceiling when I cut it down, yes, a full 7’ of plant above dirt, and the blooms it made kept falling off. So now it is rapidly regrowing and blooming again. Considering putting it outside for full sunlight but we are already up in the high 80’s [88 today, for example], could be another brutal summer and the Reaper wouldn’t make it. (they much prefer temps under 85º) With 25-30 mph winds and the high temps, having trouble deciding to put this plant outdoors as I’ve got 8 months invested and months to go.

Hate to burst your bubble, but Dragon’s Breath has also been dethroned.

At 3.18 million Scoville:

Not bursting any bubble of mine, surprised though, hadn’t heard about that. (as if the past 6 months I’ve been walking in the park) But so far it’s only claims, it’s not verified and still un named. And from my experience with the Reaper, it’ll be for the very few hard core extremists to eat as the Reaper is pretty much beyond me. I mean, I eat it, but I still pay for it. lol

Hmmm. I often wonder why people breed peppers so furiously hot. Just so some idiots on yootoob can take a new Hot Pepper Challenge and drool and writhe on video?

Not like anyone can actually eat one of those right off the vine. And least and not burst into flames or something.

Hmmm.

Lightbringer – to set records. There is no practical reason as much beyond habanero is much less flavor and more heat.

Just like why do we need a 32,000 lumen flashlight or a flashlight with 1.2 million+ lux? Bragging rights for most of us. Speaking for myself only, the BLF A6 is the most flashlight I’ll realistically ever use in a handheld light.

Keltex, that vid is one of our all time favorites! I have about fallen out of my chair countless times watching that!

All this hot sauce talk, got a bit carried away with the Ghost Pepper Fury Texas Texas Salsa at lunch. But man was it good! Big Smile

Best part is that momentary delayed reaction after drinking the Coke…

Expecting refreshment, all you find is bitter pain.

I’ve seen that SO many times and here I am falling out of my chair yet again! lol

One of the funniest things I’ve ever seen, you have to wonder who slipper her that in with all the nice soothing fruit? She thought it was “So Cute!” And it’s just a measely little orange Habanero. ONLY around 300,000 Scoville units. .. .. but she did indeed eat the entire thing!

She’ll be so healthy now, all that exercise she just got along with the vitamin C of 3 oranges… man she’s on her way to being in top form! Big Smile

Oddly enough, we once found a GatorAid called Strawberry Ice that actually quenched the fire. Not much will… you typically get to live with it, burning down low in your gut, for a good 20 minutes or more.

Ain’t life Grand?

Watched that with my 10 yr old again and laughed so hard I was almost sick! Silly

I thought it was funny in that it was kinda like a porno gone horribly, horribly, wrong. Big Smile

Rewatch it with that in mind, tell me if I’m wrong. Evil

It’s just Glozell who does stupid stuff like this all the time. Go watch her video of the cinnamon challenge.

I put a couple teaspoon’s worth of Blair’s Sudden/Ultra/Mega Death in my soup, gets it fairly spicy.

Huy Fong Sriracha is best sriracha and I put it on a lot of Asian-style foods.

Original Tabasco is best when you just want a vinegary heat and not much else.

I have a bottle of the Buffalo Wild Wings Blazin’ sauce, I don’t think it’s 350,000 Scoville. I completed the 12 wings/6 min challenge once.

Rooster Sauce, from Los Angeles, it;s very red and has a rooster on the (large, squeezy) bottle

Cholula from Mexico, round wood top

Crystal (very cheap, from texas) has a nice clear sharp taste

Dave’s Insanity hot sauce – not recommended, it is hot but just doesn;t taste all that good.

I love me some Cholula on mexican food. Love I really like hot stuff, right to the point where you get a little red faced and your eyes begin to blur with water in your eyes type stuff. My father-in-law gave this to me for Christmas several years ago. . Holy Moly! This stuff is extremely HOT! Oops I add about 5 drops to a full bottle of Cholula to bring the heat up, good stuff. I can take a tooth pick and get one drop out and put in a big bowl of chili, and Oh man will it clean your sinuses out. I have tried 2 drops to a big bowl but that makes my eyes water to much, a little to much heat. Just using a drop here and there this stuff will last me forever. If you like hot stuff just add a few drops of this to your favorite sauce, it will make grown men cry. Big Smile Do be careful!!!!

Are Hot Bar-B-Que sauces allowed in this thread?

If so, I am all about this stuff;

http://www.jbsauces.com/ghostpepperbbq/

Looks like they now have a new Ghost Pepper ketchup too;
https://www.amazon.com/JBs-Best-Natural-Bourbon-Infused-Ketchup/dp/B07F3...

Wish I could get it local, so usually order 4 bottles at once and some salsa too.

Muto, I don’t know if hot Bar-B-Que sauce is allowed here, but I’m glad you posted it anyway! Party I didn’t know there was such a thing as Ghost Pepper Bar-B-Que sauce.

I am a fan of Huy Fong foods sriracha for a sauce that goes on almost anything. (no.really I have put this stuff on vanilla ice cream!)

For the real fire, I currently have a bottle of Flashbang (now being sold as LD50) and a bottle of The End both from the pepper palace. These are essentially weaponized food.
