Hottest Hot Sauce – Scoville Scale for Worlds Hottest Hot Sauces

People are constantly asking what are the world’s hottest hot sauces for 2012 so we put together the list of the hottest hot sauces ever created. If you are a hot sauce lover then chances are you have heard of the Scoville scale and know how it is used.  But for the newcomers to the love of hot sauce, it is interesting to note how hot sauces are rated and how hot they really can get.

The Scoville scale is a measurement of the spicy heat (or piquance) of a chili pepper. It is named after its creator, American pharmacist Wilbur Scoville. His method, devised in 1912, is known as the Scoville Organoleptic Test. The number of Scoville heat units (SHU) in a particular pepper indicates the amount of capsaicin present. What is Capsaicin? It is a chemical compound that stimulates chemoreceptor nerve endings in the skin, especially the mucous membranes.   Continue Reading

According to the post, the Butch T Trinidad Scorpion tested at 1,463,700 SHU (SHU = scoville heat units).

Review of Da Bomb Ghost Pepper Sauce

This time Insane Chicken.com is truly insane!

This is “Atomic Eh?” and today I am spending some time in the kitchen. Just received a package from my favorite store, Insane Chicken.com and the first thing I pull out of the box is a new product called Da Bomb Ghost Pepper Hot Sauce. I hope it’s “Atomic!”

Everyone repeat after me, “Fear and trepidation!” Jolokia Peppers always make me think twice about using caution. Continue Reading

Cluckin’ Hot Ghost Pepper Sauce Review

Insane Chicken’s Cluckin’ Hot Sauce – InsaneChicken sells the world’s finest hot sauces, so why make their own? Simply, because they’re damned good. Insane Chicken’s Cluckin’ Hot Sauce is described on the label as a ghost pepper (popular name of the mega-hot bhut jolokia) sauce, but in fact it’s a potent blend of peri peri peppers, ghost peppers, and concentrated pepper extract, which adds up to one fiery concoction.

Cluckin’ Hot Ghost Pepper Sauce is a nice, very thick reddish-brown sauce, with the peppers floating in a stew of red wine vinegar, tomatoes, onion, and molasses. I like that the thickness of the sauce means that it stays where you put it, rather than dripping off meat or spilling all over the plate. Continue Reading

Bhut Jolokia the Hottest Chili in the World

According to R.B Srivastava, director of Defense Research Lab of India, the thumb-sized bhut jolokia chilies or sometimes referred to as ghost peppers are strong enough to be used in pepper sprays. It is even used for stopping riots in Israel and the US.

It is grown and cultivated in the northeast part of India. It got recognition after receiving the “world’s hottest” tag from Guinness Book of World Records. Ananta Saikia, lone exporter of this pepper opines that workers are required to wear face masks, safety glasses, protective outfits and helmets while packing it. He exports the pepper to Germany, US and England and anticipates the yearly sales to increase 500% this year. Continue Reading

Blair’s Ultra Death Sauce with Jersey Fury Hot Sauce Review

Blair’s Ultra Death Sauce with Jersey Fury – The sauce doesn’t even sound like it plays nice. I’ve had plenty of Blair’s ultra hot sauces. There are enough of them, believe me: Blair’s Mega Death Sauce with Liquid Rage, Blair’s Original Death Sauce, Blair’s Pure Death with Jolokia, and now Blair’s Ultra Death Sauce with Jersey Fury.

Just what the hell is Jersey Fury anyway?

Like all of the Blair hot sauces, this is over-the-top hot. It’s dangerous, simple as that. Blair sauces also have the distinction of tasting great on top of the heat. There are no preservatives, which truly does shine through when you taste the sauce. Continue Reading

Jolokia BBQ Sauce Review

Jolokia BBQ Sauce – This BBQ sauce has been a long time coming. This is a barbecue sauce and, as such, great in barbecue applications, but it’s also a great replacement for whatever sauce you use on your hot wings. I got excited when I saw the bottle. BBQ sauce made with Naga Jolokia. I’ve never seen it before. The thought of getting this sauce on chicken wings was like waking up Christmas morning to presents spread around the tree and piled high beneath it too. I went to the freezer to find I had no chicken wings left. That meant a quick trip to the store, a chicken wing purchase, and rushing back home to fire up a grill specifically for wings, specifically with Jolokia BBQ Sauce.

Everybody knew this was going to be a hot sauce. Most people asked to be left out of it. Continue Reading

Mad Dog 357 Ghost Pepper Hot Sauce Review

Mad Dog 357 Ghost Pepper Hot Sauce – Whereas, there are some hot sauces that are darn near too hot for their own good (or yours); and whereas, humans’ taste receptors are located on their tongues; and whereas, some of those wicked-hot hot sauces make it hard to review because a single drop placed on the tongue burns said appendage so badly the reviewer cannot taste much of anything, let alone breathe without hiccupping; therefore, let it be known that this reviewer will do his best to provide not only a sense of how Mad Dog 357 Ghost Pepper Hot Sauce tastes, but also ways it can be consumed without causing injury.

If you’ve been on this site for any length of time, you probably know by now that the “ghost pepper” (bhut jolokia) is officially listed as being the world’s hottest pepper. Continue Reading

Ghost Pepper vs Habanero Pepper

Jolokia peppers grown by an Indian company grew a Jolokia pepper that tested at 1,041,427 SHU (Scoville Heat Units) and it was confirmed by the Guinness Book of World Records as the hottest pepper in the World in February 2007.

The Red Savina habanero was the previous record holder, at only 350,000–580,000 Scoville Heat Units. Continue Reading

Insane Chicken’s Cluckin’ Hot Sauce Review

Insane Chicken’s Cluckin’ Hot Sauce I’m sitting outside right now, in Georgia, on a beautiful Summer’s day. I mean, it truly is beautiful. The weather is perfect. The grill is fired up. My kids are running around having a blast, and I’m watching my gorgeous wife play with them. I’m also dipping chips in cheese laced heavily with Insane Chicken’s Cluckin’ Hot Sauce. We’re also going to do some wings using the very same sauce.

The Ghost pepper is one of the hottest peppers around. Using it in a sauce is risky, unless of course all you want to do is cause pain. Continue Reading

Da Bomb Ghost Pepper Sauce Review

Da Bomb Ghost Pepper Hot Sauce – People who are not fans of the habanero-lime taste will not be converted with this sauce. However, the lack in originality in the taste department is more than made up for with the heat.

Hot sauce aficionados are well aware of the dreaded (yet much loved) ghost pepper. Officially known as the bhut jolokia pepper, Guinness dubbed it the hottest chili pepper in 2007. Da Bomb Ghost Pepper Hot Sauce in all of its firey glory, is billed as “ghost pepper hot sauce.” This is somewhat misleading. Tomato paste, habanero and lime form the base to this sauce and ghost pepper powder makes a guest appearance.

The image of an atomic bomb on the bottle showcases the intent of this sauce: to explode in your mouth and annihilate your taste buds. Continue Reading

Mad Dog 357 Ghost Pepper Sauce Review

Mad Dog 357 Ghost Pepper Hot Sauce – This sauce has a lot going for it right out of the gate. First, there’s the naga jolokia pepper that gives it insane heat. One little bead of this sauce on the tip of your finger will have your lips and mouth burning like a match in dry brush. To augment that heat, there’s also the African peri-peri pepper, some fresh habanero, and chili extract. Are you starting to get the picture? This is a mouth blister waiting to happen, so be careful when you use it.

Mad Dog 357 Ghost Pepper Hot Sauce lulls you into a sense of peace when you open it and take a whiff. The fruity fragrance leads you to believe that you’re in the company of a mild sauce. It’s a ghost pepper sauce, so you should know better, but there’s that sweet and fruity fragrance. Continue Reading

The Ghost Hot Pepper Sauce Review

The Ghost Hot Sauce – Are you afraid of the ghost? That’s the question asked on the black label of this sauce. The black label features a ghoul that looks like Death himself paying a visit. The makers of the sauce warn you to be afraid of this ghost. I don’t know about all that, but I do know there’s heat hidden inside the bottle – serious heat. With the naga jolokia pepper as its base, that’s no surprise. In addition to that magical pepper, the ingredients include carrots, papaya, lime juice, passion fruit, salt, vinegar, onion, and garlic. Those flavors are layered and balanced beautifully, making a sauce that packs the heat wallop chili lovers crave and the flavor a gourmet palate demands.

A lot of the sauces made with the naga jolokia are not only hot, but they tend to be great additives to all sorts of food. Continue Reading
