Trinidad Scorpion Invades Houston, Texas

I would like to thank Steve Smith for helping me put all the footage together for this. We witnessed many people who decided to attempt their fate at eating a Trinidad Scorpion pepper, and caught it on film. Steve was not just a film editor here, he was also a participant, and not an eager one at that. Especially after watching a few panic faces try to consume the evil veggie. As I have stated before, I do believe it is the most painful pepper that I have ever sampled, but it is also one of the tastiest.

Whether it is out of curiosity, ego driven or just plain stupidity I found a few members of the chile elite to sample this extremely hot pepper. I plan to bring some with me to Open Fields because I heard the crops are bad this year. If someone wants one, just look me up, but I do warn you that it is not a pepper to be played with. Especially on an empty stomach.

There is some elements of footage that those with a weak stomach might not want to watch, so be forewarned.

    A shout out for whoever turned you on to the Trinidad in the first place Al :rotflmfao:

    Yeah, it was 3 years ago in a cabin in the Smokey Mountains when a little pepper farmer had me sample one. After my nose hairs fell out and I could breath again, I new I had found me chile love. :love:

    Yeah, I had to pause and read each one. Funny stuff.

    The Trinidad Scorpion: I recommend it for your diet. It’s like bulemia, only you’re trying not to puke! Now in my defense, I had just finished the lollipop competition, and downed about 5 beers immediately afterward. Now as anyone will tell you, you don’t eat nasty peppers on an empty stomach. Now as few will tell you, you don’t eat them on a stomach full of beer. I shamefully admit to my gastrointestinal faux-pas, and humbly request a re-do!

    Good love and good food,

    You actually want to go through that hell again? :splode: :stretcher: :surrender:

    Very entertaining vids, Buddah. What did it read on Scrovak’s whipped cream can?

    So, you’re taking some scorps to Open Fields? What are you doing to preserve them? Usually fresh peppers stay good for me in the fridge or left out in the open (if they don’t start drying out for the later) for 2-3 weeks, tops, before they start getting moldy.

    My trinidad scorpions I grew this year were pathetic. I had a some bhuts that got to be big and beautiful, and as I mentioned to you last week I wanted to try to eat both simultaneously on camera at the same time. Hopefully you can get some poor idiot, I mean a brave chile warrior, to eat both at OF.

    I have them in those green bags that make fruit and veggies last longer. I also picked all kiinds of ripeness so they would mature in the bags, which they have. I brought the most mature ones to Houston and doing the same with Open Fields. I only have a few unmatured ones left, the rest are mostly red or yellow. As long as the bags are tied up and kept dry the molding won’t happen in the same time frame. I am sticking the peppers in my carry on too and not in the hot cargo area.

    Alcoholic whipped cream?

    That was great! I gotta meet this Haggus guy…funny stuff. It’s amazing how a little pepper can take away everybody’s “coolness factor”.

    That could never happen to me. I’m so cool ice cubes are jealous.
