Carolina Reaper

Has anyone tried these? New hottest pepper in the world. It is from a place right up the road so I went and bought few bottles of hot sauce with diff peppers and one bottle of puree of just carolina reaper. I also bought pack of seeds for the reaper and I planted them last weekend. So hopefully around Aug-Sept I will have some of my own. No idea what I am going to do with that many peppers that hot ha.

    For those not familiar with here are some links including one to the store whose owner created/sells them

    Last is to the store. I boughthe 2ox puree, Extra Mean Green (my favorite), Shoot thats hot (my least favorite), VooDoo Prince (good stuff)

    They have a bunch of diff kinds at the physical store. They do nto sell the actual peppers in the store so I had to buy the puree and the seeds

    I love hot stuff. I put just a bit of the puree on end of a toothpick to taste. It certainly has a kick to say the least.

    What do people use these peppers for, home defense?

    I love spicy stuff, but it's become such a pissing contest on who can create the hottest pepper.

    I always get a kick out of watching videos of people eating hot peppers, but for this pepper all the vids I found include people throwing up. 


    Which came first the chicken or the egg?  I egged the chicken and then I ate his leg wing.

    Ha! Some is that. But most of his sauces taste very good. I tried probably 10 while there. Just use less of than use something not hot like Tabasco. As far as this pepper goes I will do some in big pots of soup and chili. I will dehydrate and make rub for pork butt or jerky and the like. Just a little goes a long way.

    This company(http://www.oregontrailjerky.com/beef.aspx) makes a jerky that uses the Carolina Reaper pepper called Fire and Ice.  I guess its too new to show up on their website. I bought some of it at a boat show in Milwaukee in March and it was very good. Hot but very good. Just eating one piece of jerky was not overpowering hot but (or should I say BUTT) gave me the same gastric burn as I would get from eating a considerable amount of a very hot salsa, if you know what i mean.
