If any of you out there like it hot and I mean ON FIRE hot this is the sauce for you. I found a website on the bottle and thought some of you might like to check it out. You can visit the site
here.

At one time it was the hottest The original formula measures about 80,000 Scoville Units. To get and idea of how hot that is,
the hottest jalapeno is about 6,000. Habenero's are about 300,000 with one variety being over 500,000. The hottest sauce that I know of is called "Da-Bomb Final Answer" It weighs in at a whopping 1,500,000 Scoville units and not meant to be consumed alone but added to soups and such.

I can't help but sit here and wonder - Who on earth came up with a scale and named it for measuring the intensity of chillies? lol

Cool, I didn't know they measured the stuff either.
Personally, I think people who like to feel pain when eating are crazy. I fall into the 100 Scoville range. Just a little spicy but no where near combustible. As for Da-Bomb, they can keep it. I don't even plan to mention it to Dave. Not after suffering an eyeful just touching a small bit of that stuff. Da-Bomb would have blinded me for life.

Well for all you crazy people who really like it hot here's two possibilities. Insanity or Da-Bomb. Have a blast.

It was in 1912 while working for the Parke Davis pharmaceutical company that one of their chemists, Wilbur Scoville, developed a method to measure the heat level of a chile pepper.

feelin hot hot hot

Not surprised this thread would be so popular.. I'm a hot sauce fan myself and I thought I was a bit of an excentric stocking usually 5-6 different types at any given time....

then one day I was in Ottawa and came up a lovely little shop that sells NOTHING BUT hot sauce. They even have a website http://www.chillychiles.com

From there I discovered there is quite a 'hot-sauce cult' out there. You can even buy a huge assortment on ebay...

me, I just like to keep a few different types handy for dabing on just about everything

Greg,

Only a woman would laugh at that!

We have 5 or 6 different kinds of peppers in the garden this year. Nothing like the A-bomb, but probably on the scoville index comparable to jalapenos. I like good hot jalapenos, and some are hotter than others. The super hot peppers I stay away from because they are so hot I can't really taste them. Hmmmm, I wonder if anyone would be interested in a recipe for jalapeno poppers?

Ed
