Foods That Scare Me, Part One – Dave’s Dragon Dust

This is a first in a series where I attempt to tackle the upper echelon of the extremely hot…Foods That Scare Me! I’m going to taste and eat stupid-hot extract sauces and products made with LOTS the hottest habaneros and naga bhut jolokias, right on camera for the benefit of all you at home.  Will they make me cough and hiccup? Will they cause me to drool and drip snot everywhere (hey, sometimes this job is not a pretty one)?  Will I go running for a cup of milk trying to douse the fire? It’s going to be an adventure for you and I to find out what what my limits are.

Today I’m going to taste a teaspoon of Dave’s Dragon Dust on camera. This is one of the best but also one of the hottest crushed chile pepper seasonings available. It’s made with a slew of scorching dried hot peppers such as habaneros and bhut jolokias, as well as milder varieties to give it depth and complexity. Make no mistake about it, I would definitely rank it up there with some multi-million Scoville Heat Unit extract sauces as one of the hottest products I’ve ever consumed.

Will I make it out alive? Watch the video to find out…

Dave Stehnike of Dave’s Dragon Dust runs a chile pepper farm up in Oregon and concocted this sinister blend of dehydrated pods with some of his crops. In addition to his crushed chile seasoning, he’s also planning to make the jump into hot sauces sometime in the near future.

    Good stuff, no? 🙂

    Their website says it’s sold out…

    Nice job! :_onfire:

    I bet that would be great on pizza, lasagna, etc –

    In the meantime, since you can;t ge the Dragin Dust, I reccomend this:
    Andy was at Peppers At The Beach and I bought a bottle of his “Loganville Shake” and use it constantly, it’s VERY GOOD!!Give it a try for yourself….

    Wow, are you spying on me? 😛 I was planning to do a written review on Loganville Shake within the next couple of days. I’ve owed Andy this review for months now…

    Well, you won’t be disappointed….

    This stuff looks amazing. I recently found my love for hot sauces and have two of Blair’s (Pure and Ultra) currently in the mail. The wait is killing me!

  • June 22, 2010 at 1:22 pm

    Blair’s Pure Death is one of my absolute favorites, I use it all the time, and Ultra is a real scorcher – look for Scott’s video review of the Blair’s Ultra Death….I don’t use Ultra, they just sit my collection:)

    That was very..hic…entertain… I especially…hic…loved the…hic…music.

    No coincidence to your theme, but the post I am preparing most likely for tomorrow is one that scared me. Wait to you see it. I don’t even know what to call it. 😯

    I have watched Scott’s video review. His website is how I found this one. I got the Pure for the flavor and Ultra for the heat. Never tried anything that hot, so I’m looking forward to seeing if I like it. It will probably just be one of those sauces I use when I’m really having an urge for heat, or unless I have nothing left. lol

    Vanilla Jalapeno Gellato?

  • June 22, 2010 at 9:40 pm

    That would be relished.

  • June 22, 2010 at 10:47 pm

    I like the Loganville Shake. The difference between this and Dave’s Dragon Dust is that Loganville is flat-out hot all the time. DDD is a bit more unpredictable – sometimes it can be tolerable and other times it can be an absolute tongue-melter. :_onfire: That’s what “scared” me – I didn’t know what to expect.

  • June 23, 2010 at 7:28 am

    Vanilla jalapeno relish….

  • June 23, 2010 at 3:28 pm

    Awesome review! I have to say, I did get a good little laugh at the hiccups… Looks like good stuff to kick up Chili’s and stews with.

  • June 24, 2010 at 9:57 pm

    Thanks Wayne. Yes, it’s very good to add a touch of heat to a great many things.

  • June 25, 2010 at 1:48 am

    Finally got my hot sauces in. Pure was amazing, but Ultra was far hotter than I could have imagined. I can see myself using it, but in much smaller doses.

  • June 25, 2010 at 1:22 pm

    I can go through a bottle of PURE pretty fast!

  • June 25, 2010 at 2:01 pm

    If you love his sauces, you have to try his rubs. They have an excellent flavor to heat ratio, and can use them on anything. Plus, they won’t overpower the flavor of anything you add them in.

  • June 25, 2010 at 2:07 pm

    Excellent review Scott, can’t wait to see what you do next. Can’t wait to order me a bottle! By your reaction, looks like it is packing a lil heat. LOL
