I was looking around the net today for chili sauces, and it seems to me that some people like to add a whole world of pain to the eating experience. Some of the sauces on sale are insane. I knew you could get very hot sauces, but not this hot.
You can buy the hottest chili sauce in the world, which measure a massive 16 million scoville units, which is the hottest you can get. It carries a warning that it is not fit for human consumption, and before you buy it you must agree to a disclaimer -
"Purchaser further understands that Blair's 16 Million Reserve is for experimental/display purposes only, furthermore any handling of the contents of Blair's 16 million must be under a controlled environment using protective gloves and safety eyewear."
A friend told me about a guy he used to work with, who was trying to be a real bloke, and splashed something called "Dave's Insanity Sauce" on his sandwiches at lunchtime, and all afternoon he was in agony and he could see nothing but green on his PC monitor.
I love a good hot spicy curry, and get through bottles of tobasco regularly, but this stuff is crazy. They do have good names though.

There's got to be a joke there somewhere...
I have a bottle of Dave's Insanity Sauce, and it really should be used on drop at a time (it's quite thick, so the drops are large). However, at the NW Meet when I cooked chilli for everyone, the extra bowls of chillis I put out for those who like it hotter were not enough for James (magicboy) and he used a good quarter of my bottle of DIS. And he didn't bat an eyelid. Think he must have lead lining or something,

A couple of my favourite names are "Ass in hell" and "Holy Sh!t" sauces
Oh, and if you like fresh chillis, try Peppers by post and their dorset naga.
I love my chilli sauces and really hot food. Ive never tried th eabove sauces mentioned with teh exception of tabasco. Ive not understood why tabasco sauce is so popular - its crap. Its a bit hot but it has no real flavour to it, just vinegar and a bit of heat. Habernero chillis are far superior in flavour and heat. No sure how easy it is to get in the UK but Marie Shraps chilli sauces from Belize are very good with loads of flavour. Right the way down the Carribean coast of Central America you get get alsorts of really good chillis sauces usually locally made. The best I ever tried was on Bocas del Toras islands in Panama made by a local women who sold it to various places in the islands - really hot but full of flavour.
My son eats at a place once in a while where you have to sign a waiver for certain sauces. his fav is Possible Side Effects.
I knew Bri would have got in on the act here
My wife has a friend from Mexico, and she brought us back some lovely chilis last time she went home. She got us a tin of really hot chilis in a bbq sauce. Oh man, they were really lovely. She also brought us back a bag of scotch bonnet chilis, which were f**king hot.
I found a Mexican shop in town today, so I am going tomorrow to stock up on a few bits. They have a very impressive range of really nasty sauces, and really hot fresh and dried chilis. I just need to be brave and buy some !! I am not sure I could handle the "Dave's Ultimate Insanity Sauce" rated as 10+++ by the shop. They have plenty rated at 10, and a few at 10+++. I may decide to be chicken and go for a 5 or 6 just to test them out, or some "Dave's Hurtin' Mustard" rated as 8, but I have a bit of a problem with food that promises pain on the label !!
I have been trying to grow a chili plant at home the last months. At first it grew like crazy, but has calmed down a bit now and isn't growing so much. I guess you need to do it in really warm weather.
So, any advice on growing would be welcome.
I had Dave's Burning Nuts once, peanuts coated in dried habanero powder. mmm mmm mmmmmm.

Not sure I like the sound of that AT ALL :-((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((
Is that the thought of 'burning nuts' covered in habanero powder.......or Bri eating them?
