Re:The World's Hottest Pepper
That's not what I'm saying at all. What I'm saying is that there are fantastic sauces made from peppers hotter than habaneros. I suggest you invest the $5 or so and give one a try. You may be pleasantly surprised, and possibly change your mind. I have eaten Thai food that is much hotter and far less enjoyable than the products I've referenced.
I understand your position, but I find it indefensible because you yourself said that you stopped sampling. There are people who know how to balance the characteristics, it isn't just the heat, some of the super hots are just damn good. If it was just the heat, I would have used the Dave's instead of tossing it after 10 years of neglect. I agree with you that Dave's is not a culinary product; reference post #24 in this thread, you actually reinforced what I'd already written. But just because one company makes red capsaicin extract garbage doesn't mean that all 5oz bottles of heat are the same. They aren't.
