May I draw the attention of my fellow Arrsers to http://www.chilliworld.com/SP6.asp?p_id=63 ? Apparently it is the hottest sauce ever made but what is the point? It would certainly feck you up on ex....I always used to use curry powder and/or garlic salt to give my scran a lift. Until in a Cash & Carry I came across a bag of 250 tiny botles of Tabasco sauce, each holding about a tbsp full...bliss.
Daves Ultimate Insanity, hot as f*cking f*ck, jazzes up a boil in the bag nicely & is a real man test for any unfortunate nigs on the crew. How we laughed as our newest crafty changed colour 4 times then started crying.
My personal fave is Zulu but Tabasco is great if your not in the mood for anything too hot. Saying that, I remember getting some in my eye in Shorncliffe on pre-Boz training once and worse pain I have rarely experienced! The worst thing was that cold running water just made it sting more. Couldn't see anything during the cultural awareness lecture so it wasn't all bad...
Bought a bottle of hot sauce down in Texas for my uncle which required the signing of a waiver to any legal action before purchase. Warned the old fellow to only use a few drops and instead he slathered it on... thought I was going to have to do CPR on him in the aftermath.
Far as chili goes... I make mine using ground buffalo and add a dash of whiskey to it.
concur with doomsayer, the encona hot pepper stuff is for winners and my stable condiment of choice, anything hotter and youve got an arrsehole like a japanese flag! seriously my brown(red) eye goes down for a drink if i consume anything more fierce.
