Your experience with bhut jolokia chiles

Was it anything like this guy's? I didn't think it was quite this bad but I use those little thai ones all the time in my cooking. That bhut jolokia was still on a whole other level though.

The bird could eat its way out of the cage. That was very real to me. As an apprentice, I too felt like a bird in a cage made out of bread. I just fed on my limits. -- Lionel Poilane

I could never eat anything like that and I love and grow very hot peppers.

You're right it's a whole new level.

Less is not more. More is more and more is fabulous.

I love thai peppers, can eat them plain...
Habaneros I'll do on a dare....

But something like that, no way no how.
I suppose he barely felt the kick to the crotch.

i grew them a few years ago in my garden. since they were grown in joisey rather than the tropics, i suspect they weren't as hot as the authentic ones, but boy howdy, they still were HOT!!!!

i decided to eat one raw just to see what they were like, and my reaction was similar to that guy's in the first few minutes. i mean, i didn't scream or roll around on the floor, but my face sprung leaks at every opening and i was in pain for a good half hour afterwards.

i'm pretty used to eating thai birds both fresh and dried, but ghost chilis are truely that "'nother level".

I have long since given up the ego portion of taking such challenges. I like the hot and spicy, I truly do, but if it ain't fun then what's the point?
Habanero is my limit and then in small quantities or in a well made hot sauce.
