why would anyone want to eat what amounts to sulfuric acid with their tacos?

anyway if you really wanted a super hot sauce you would just use pure Capsaicin which is the active element in peppers...

it registers at 16 million Scoville

cant go higher than that.

At $80 an ounce, it better be hot.

There's a place here in San Diego that makes you sign a waiver of liability before you can buy their hotsauce.

Too much Capsaisin will burn out your taste buds for a up to two weeks. Why folks willingly do this to themselves I don't know. Heat does NOT equate to flavor. All it is is a retarded epenis measuring contest that even if you manage to win by eating the hottest stuff you'll burn your ******* out faster than the Challenger Shuttle's O rings and have no ability to taste food for a long while. GG!

edit: oh by the way for those who want flavor and not heat don't bother with Dave's Insanity sauces. They're horrible taste wise. Nothing but heat and a horrible taste.

Uh, no. It doesn't cause an "exothermic" reaction. If it did you could cook raw meat with it.

Read up on capsaicin's effect on living cells sometime if you want to know what actually happens. I'd summarize here but I'll probably get it wrong.

Hold your ass cheeks apart. Use some coarse sandpaper to rub your ring and rough it up a bit. Dump a whole bottle of that **** up your ass. See how that works and get back to everyone.

if you put the sauce on your hand, it wont feel hot. it is only in your mouth. there is a chemical reaction.

Daves insanity sauce, 10million on the scoville units scale. And yes, hot sauce can be dangerous. Daves insanity sauce started to eat away at the lining of my somach, and it was giving me really bad ulcers.

Btw, daves insanity sauce special edition is I believe 15million scoville units.

That is the hotest haut sauce in the world.

Enough capsaicin WILL make your skin burn. It's the active ingredient in a number of muscle/arthritis creams, not to mention pepper spray. It's why cookbooks recommend that you wear gloves when cutting up hot chiles.

Look, I have some friendly advice for you.

You're wrong. You don't have the slightest clue what you're talking about. I'm not just saying this to insult you, it's the truth.

Do yourself and everyone a favor and stop posting.

On the scale of 1-10, how good of an idea would this be

Ingredients:

15 Habanero peppers

1 quart 200 proof Ethanol

Method:

In a blender, puree the Habanero's in as much Ethanol as possible. Let the mixture sit overnight at room temperature. Pour the resultant sludge through paper towels and place the liquid in a glass container. Begin to heat the liquid very slowly using either an electric heating device (naked flames would be dangerous), or use a vapor trap to remove the alcohol fumes safely. Continue until 90% of the liquid has evaporated. Remove from the heat and let cool. Look for brick-red oil floating on the surface of the ethanol. If none is present, continue to evaporate the ethanol away periodically cooling the mixture to look for the red oil on the surface. Once the red oil appears, pour the red oil and the remaining ethanol into a long thin glass cylinder, use an eye dropper to suck off the oil and place it in a clean container. The red oil is fairly pure Capsaicin, probably 40% Capsaicin / 60% Capsaicinoids.
