Jeremy Walsh of Bigfats Hot Sauce Chomps a Trinidad Scorpion

For those of you not in the know, the Trinidad Scorpion chile presently is the hottest pepper in the world. Whilst at the Bowers Chile Festival we got a reluctant volunteer to eat one. His name is Jeremy Walsh of Bigfats Hot Sauce. The pepper was picked by me, and it is fresher than a bag of new diapers. If you are entertained by this coerced act by fellow chilehead friend Steve Seabury of High River Sauces, then please visit his website Without further adieu, enjoy Jeremy’s pain.

    Trinidad scoprpion aside, that night was a lot of fun. Can’t say the same about the next morning. Thanks Buddah. You’re a peach.

    Just to let all know, because of the soundtrack, YouTube will not allow the video to be played on a wireless device nor Germany. Don’t ask. 😐

    Kudos to you Jer! Hope your colon didn’t have a nuclear meltdown afterwards. 😉

    Thanks so much for posting the video Buddah, it was a blast! :splode: Now that’s entertainment!

    I wanted to make a comment on your bravery. Eating that Scorpion – the hottest chile in the world – is something only a few humans will do. I am very impressed at your calmness after eating that bad boy. In my opinion you ARE a badass chile-head! I don’t know if I will handle it as calmly. But, I’m going to try soon.

    Just wanted to offer KUDOS to ya, bro! Great vid!! Phil Lanza Sr. ( ~Burn In – Burn Out!~

    You Da Man!!!

    Thanks everybody. I appreciate it. I was a little apprehensive at first but nothing ventured nothing burnt I guess.

  • September 14, 2011 at 6:20 pm

    Yes that last post was me. My name disappeared from the field at the last second. Yay technology.

    The heat of the fresh trini burns on the throat so bad it takes your breath away…

  • September 14, 2011 at 10:49 pm

    Neither of you Walshs know what you are doing. I would stick to hot sauce and pepper sampling on video. :photographer:

    Are you using illegally-downloaded music again, Al? 😆

    Gotta disagree. I think the bhut jolokia has a much better, sweeter, fruitier flavor. Scorpions are a little too much on the bitter, floral side for me.

    But if you’re referring to smoked jolokias, then I’m with you. I prefer them fresh and not smoked.

    I know when I saw Johnny from Heartbreaking Dawns eat a scorpion he described it as floral too, which was what I was expecting. I didn’t get that at all from this one and just to be sure I tried another quarter of one last night and got the same flavor. Might just be the strain, soil, conditions etc. but I didn’t get any bitterness. That’s just my taste buds though. Maybe Buddah should try one since his peppers from the same place.

    No thanks, but I will bring some for Scott to gobble down. I am thinking that it would be cool to do a Missouri Boyz throwdown. Two people, two scorpions at same time. :photographer:

  • September 15, 2011 at 12:55 pm

    No need to bring me any, Buddah. I’ve been growing my own Scorpions this year (Butch T, Yellow, Moruga) and there’s a big bowl with probably 50 fresh pods sitting in my kitchen now.

    On the Bhut vs. trini debate…they are very different peppers, which is good. When smoked, the trini is much better. As fresh, I like to cook with both of them, but I do like the trini flavor better. My favorite pepper now though? The Yellow 7 Pot…SO VERSATILE!!!

  • September 16, 2011 at 12:58 am

    I am down. I have something in the works. I have brushed upon my ideas with the other half of the Missouri Boyz already.

  • September 16, 2011 at 1:06 am

    When me and Scott did that Ghost Wing challenge with the 5 million SHU extract, it burned when I peed. Maybe it was hot. Maybe it wasn’t. Maybe it just didn’t mix well with the beers I had. I am only sharing that because Buddah cracked me up with mentioning CUJ’s experience.


  • September 16, 2011 at 9:21 am

    It wasn’t my urine that burned, but something else… :toilet:

  • September 16, 2011 at 10:02 am

    when I ate a whole jolokia a couple years ago I had the stream o fire for a couple days!

  • September 16, 2011 at 10:15 am

    I know my blog has finally made it with this hot piss chat.

  • September 16, 2011 at 11:11 am

    My favorite pepper is anyone superhot I can get a hold of !! 😀 I love bhuts.I am currently really liking choc bhuts.I also really like 7pots,scorps,Naga morichs, and fataliis.Thats just to name a few. 😆 I am getting close to firing up the grow room and moving some plants indoors.I hope they do good this year.I had a problem with pests last year.

    I’ve never had firewater lol but have had a fire-reahh a time or two.

  • September 16, 2011 at 2:38 pm

    I have some yellow 7 pot powder. I made it with the dried yellow 7 pots I bought from Jim. I had to use a rolling pin though, since I broke the blender. I’m gonna try it on some spaghetti.
