The Trinidad Scorpion vs the Hot Sauce Makers

I found 2 volunteers to try my freshly picked Trinidad Scorpions at the Bowers Pepper Festival. The first was Johnny of Heartbreaking Dawns. He was a real champ, and gave a full breakdown of what was happening to him every step of the way. The second was Vid of Torchbearer Sauces. Vid told me before he ate it, he doesn’t like eating whole peppers. Yet, he took to the challenge with a little prodding by his beloved Alexis. She grinned like a Cheshire cat the whole time while Vid looked desperately for help that never came. The Pepper Gods can be like that sometimes. This is my new favorite video of the year. Thanks Vid! :photographer:

    Thanks for stopping by. I thought you might’ve got carnapped on your way to Bowers. It is good to see you are all right. As for the Trinidad Scorpion vs Ghost chile debate, sounds like a challenge to me. I got some to give away. Tell me where to send them. Tell them I want video. Find people that have the ghost pepper that will testify which is hotter. Then we can talk bet.

    No im fine thak you for asking…Dont need any i have way they are hotter Buddah no way

    Don’t say no way. Find me some of your taste testers on PnM and I will be happy to mail them a t.s. today. I have many in all stages of ripeness. I think either your home grown variety is weaken by the condaminated by the Jersey soil or you have not had the vein of the pepper because it is hotter than the ghost chile. Lets do this test.

    Honey…Sweatheart…I have been eating peppers for a long time now so i really do not have to ask anyone but myself how hot they are. The soil in jersey in fine as well..I have had the Vein…it is not hotter..we can do a test i will put something together

  • September 14, 2010 at 10:23 am

    Send em to me…. i’ll do the test and film it. I’ll leave plenty of time between peppers as well.

    John will try to get it out today. Resend me your address via text.

  • September 14, 2010 at 10:35 am

    I understand heat is subjective, but we will see whether yours is impaired. If you find me any suckers, errr volunteers, send me their addresses before 3:30 so I can ship them their precious cargo.

    Alright, I just ate and filmed a Bhut Jolokia and this is what I think. The bhut had a less intense flavor, the freshness was there and I love fresh bhut flavor, whereas the TrinScorp had that very powerful frshness accompanied by the floral notes. The bhut hit me right away and I did feel the heat in all the same areas, but much faster, also the bhut hit the throat as well. The hiccups, almost immediately, the tears, much more rapidly and much more burn, the nasal also faster. It also intensified faster and continued on longer than the scorpion. I will send the video over to buddah for the site, i the meantime it’s up on my youtube channel @ spicysauces. In my final opinion based on the specimens of each pepper I tried, the Bhut was indeed hotter and more uncomfortable. I did both on a full stomach.

    ps, buddah how do i send it to you, or can you embed it from youtube?

  • September 14, 2010 at 7:08 pm

    Thank you..enough said…….

  • September 14, 2010 at 8:05 pm

    It is posted now. Thanks for taking one for the team.

    @ Fat Kid…its in the mail. Hopefully it will hold up in the travel to you. I gave you a few with different ripeness. Red is the color of full ripeness.

    From what I’ve experienced every pepper will differ in heat. They can’t all be the same. I’ve had hot habs and I’ve had ones that were extremely mild. Same with jalapenos jolokias etc..

    I’m looking for the first Trinidad Scorpion wing sauce from HBD….:)

  • September 15, 2010 at 2:54 pm

    Y’know I remember you telling me that specifically at Pappadeux’s. A good place to start looking would be right under your nose. (that’s a cryptic hint about something special!)

  • September 15, 2010 at 3:54 pm

    If that is indeed what you have sent me, it will be used this weekend, and I will film it!!!:)

  • September 15, 2010 at 5:08 pm

    all i sent is that shirt and it’s not your size. if there’s anything else in the box the ups guy must have put it there….

  • September 15, 2010 at 5:14 pm

    Yeah, I heard they do leave a little something something. That is how they got their slogan, “What can brown doo for you?”

    Stay tuned ILIS fans, an exclusive video is coming your way!!!
