"I'll have one wit please!"
A new sandwich just got added to my bucket list, sometime after I finish off me some Nashville Prince Hot Chicken.
While I'm intrigued by the sandwich, I have no death wish and would be open to sharing, probably about 12 ways.
I can't imagine what the sandwich tastes like but I love a challenge.

    Y'know, why use the extract? Why not just cut up some ghost peppers, or some ghost pepper sauce? If you're using extract, you can just use straight capsaicin, like Dave's Insanity does.

      Umm...the extract has the subtle and delicate flavor nuances that the ghost pepper is known for?

        If it does, then that's what I want, and my question is made from ignorance! Thanks Brad. I don't like "just heat", I like the nuances. I have a bottle of Naga Jolokia sauce, it is very, very hot and very, very good; in situations where I would give a half dozen or so squirts of habanero sauce I'll use one drop of NJ.

          I wonder if ghost peppers are consistently about the same or if they have a wide variance in terms of heat and flavor.  If that's the case the extract is probably easier to use because the results are more predictable.

            I imagine it's probably much easier, cheaper and safer to transport and store the extract.

              That looks like a very overcooked hot sausage hoagie.

                All I know is that picture of him suffering is hysterical.

                  Seems like a way to waste a good cheesesteak. Now ghost pepper extract on some Buffalo Wings would be good.

                    My thought exactly. Why kill the taste of a good cheesesteak with something so hot that you wouldn't even be able to taste anything but the ghost pepper.
