People sure are serious about their hot sauce...
I simply ask why...
I think it should be the other way around
Blair’s 16 Million compares to tabasco the way a bottle rocket compares to Nagasaki - NY Post May 4th, 2005
Sounds like a subject for the next Indiana Jones Movie, and stupid enough to be directed by Lucas.
Blair’s Death Sauces have always been the hottest sauces on the market and the extract line of sauces have become high dollar collector’s items. Blair’s newest reserve is called Blair’s 16 Million Reserve and it’s not really an extract. It’s pure cap, in its powdered form. This hot concoction comes in the traditional Blair’s Reserve bottle, but it is actually a small vial, almost like a salt shaker, that is stuffed inside the bottle and then sealed with white and gold wax.
Saving Private Blair's Tongue?
Blair warned me of the heat level of this item many times. He talked about having put a small speck, a piece about the size of a salt crystal, on his tongue and apparently his tongue was wounded for a few days afterward.
First bite was not that hot, so I had the wife take a bite. She threatened divorce once she could speak again, so I tried it again. Then it was hot! So I took a few more bites and had to toss the rest of the pot away
I really have no interest in spicy foods that go to the point where the taste becomes negligible compared to the searing pain. I guess that's why people like spicy things, less deadly than sky-diving and less painful than being tortured in a POW camp.
The comments shine some light for those who don't know much about capsaicin
