The Machine conquerors Columbus, Ohio

For those that have not followed the North Market Fiery Food Show thread, I must get you caught up on the latest. Steve “The Machine” Smallwood came into Columbus, Ohio as the reigning Defcon Deathmatch champion looking for some more medals to go up on the mantelpiece. Was there a plan in place to take down the CaJohn Wing Eating Contest title? Did he prepare for the Heartbreaking Dawns Scorn Bread Challenge? Who knows? It doesn’t matter because he left with double gold. This Olympic-sized chilehead feat was one for the history books, and those in attendance could tell the stories to their grandchildren in the years to come. Yet with those victories aside the Machine did some other extraordinary things that left those that witnessed it shaking their heads in disbelief.

What you are about to watch should not be tried at home. Even the bravest of us chileheads know better than to attempt these kind of stunts without expecting horrendous consequences in return. So please leave these things to the few in the world that can. Bare witness, and bow to the new Chile God, The Machine.

The peppers in this video were donated by Jim Duffy from For information on how to get some of these tasty peppers please check out the website. Thanks again Jim for the entertainment.

    I am most impressed with the 5 million scoville extract…that’s police grade pepper spray right there….we neeed to keep coming up with challenges for The Machine when he attends shows, make it an event!

    I think he needs his own booth at the shows, so people can come over with stuff and pay him to try it. :_dancingdevil:

    I’d like to see that pic on a hot sauce bottle.

    I wanna see him try pure 16 million SHU capsaicin at the WOF. Maybe Buddah can do the hypnosis on me and I could join him at doing that. 😛

    ….aaaaaand if I did those stunts, well let’s just say I wouldn’t be typing about such the idea right now! LOL!

    Now, even The Machine wouldn’t do that….would he?

  • March 1, 2011 at 3:41 pm

    He could always start training. It’s still six months away…

  • September 8, 2011 at 8:38 pm

    i just saw the 16,000,000 done by the Machine in a shot not a spoon. he posted on FB. He is CRAZY!!

  • September 9, 2011 at 12:52 am

    😆 I may be Hudd depending on who you ask! Haha. I just wanted to see how I could handle if and how bad it would hurt.A lil self test for me not for any training . 😆

    Steve, was it that sauce from Johnny with 16 mil crystals? You still bringing it to the WOF? I’ll bring the Heatseekers Chilli one from Candice like that, and we can compare them to see what’s hotter. 😉 :splode:

  • September 9, 2011 at 10:58 am

    Scott that is the one from Johnny with 16 mil crystals . The taster bottle is already empty with 2 uses 😆 Maybe we can get Firehead to give one taster up .I’ll buy it from him . I have some incinerator ordered but hasn’t arrived yet.I do have some stuff from the UK from chilepepper pete.It has extracts and crystals.It’s alot better than I thought it would be.It does have extract taste but not real harsh or nasty like most.In that pack one of the sauces is like a bbq ketchup kinda flavor.It’s great on white castle double cheeseburgers :_thumbsup: :

  • September 9, 2011 at 11:04 am

    if I still have any of my taster left, I’ll bring it to WOF. Very tasty stuff!

  • September 9, 2011 at 11:10 am

    Thanks Hudd that would be really cool 😎

  • September 9, 2011 at 1:11 pm

    I’d love to see what Johnny could do with extreme heat. Candice’s was amazing flavor-wise

  • September 9, 2011 at 1:12 pm

    Regarding the extract stuff from Chillipepper Pete…I’ve tasted a few of his extract sauces and was not impressed. I’ve gotten to the point where I immediately get turned off big time by ANY extract flavor, even if it’s only in trace amounts in a sauce.

  • September 9, 2011 at 5:43 pm

    I hear ya Scott.I like a few but if the sauce overall isn’t that good.Then I won’t hardly touch it then.It would have been cool to see Johnny taking a sample of it.

    do you get any money when you win at these tasting contests? I realy dont know how in the world your stomach and mouth can handle these hot peppers.
