Why do people eat super hot sauce?
What's the point when it over powers what you're tasting? My brother dumps hot sauce on what ever he's eating and every time he's starting sweating and looks like he's in pain.
Pic related, he put this on some lamb chops.
the same reason you see so many young men wear shorts every day in the winter- it's a kind of try-hard masculinity posturing whereby one can prove how stoic or whatever the hell they are.
people -can- enjoy food that is as spicy as those hot sauces, but for the most part they're people from south or southeast asia who grew up eating spicy food and developed a tolerance for it, and the spice brings out the flavor of the food. none of the fucking white gingers dripping specialty ultra-hot hot sauce on their fucking quesadillas are doing it for any other reason than to feel cool or impress people
They eat it for the challenge. People with friends do all kinds of pointless things just to do them together.
Dunno about ghost pepper, but super hot habanero sauce has its place in batters for frying and such.
I ate half a bottle of the Xtra Hot Habanero with a family plate of mac and cheese, hardly could even taste it. It certainly didn't 'rekt' my ass or give me any digestive problems whatsoever.
The next night I had just a tin of jalapeno sardines, not being that hungry, and had hot poop in the morning. I guess it's cause it's a lot of spicy oil.
I tried some ghost pepper sauce with my wings last night to try to be "tough", it just took all enjoyment out of the food. I usually like fairly spicy habanero based sauces, but ghost pepper was just shitty. Not to mention I had burning diarrhea all today
There's this guy on my campus who everyone knows who it is, he wears shorts and a t shirt in the winter and skips down the street listening to his ipod singing Katy Perry at the top of his lungs. I'm kind of impressed by how few fucks he gives
Ghost peppers kind of taste like spicy dirt. The flavor is just shit imo
That said, I grew up eating really spicy stuff as a kid because for whatever reason, my dad really liked it. There is definitely a line to be crossed when the spiciness of the pepper/condiment overpowers what you're using it on/in, and there is literally no reason cross that line, it's pretty much the equivalent of a 12 year old mixing all available fountain drinks together to look cool. For something like fucking lamb chops, the line is pretty much at zero
>shorts every day in the winter- it's a kind of try-hard masculinity
We wear shorts in the winter because you weakass niggas heat the building to summer drought temperatures and if we step inside with pants on we will die of heat exhaustion.
This is kind of true. I haven't worn shorts since I was too old to do so before I was too old to do so without looking like a manchild, but by God do most retards overheat their buildings during winter. Holy shit.
I mean, it's like the same temperatures they whinge about in summer are the same temperatures they aspire for in winter. Do the retards in charge of the thermostat have any concept of balance?
I like their scorpion pepper better.
I add it mostly to pizza. I like my pizza hot (temperature), and I feel like the extra spice makes it taste even hotter.
I also like the warm feeling it leaves behind. Best dose is when you are left just on the verge of sweating.
eh.. the reason you see me in shorts in the winter is because I literally am not outside for more than a few seconds. walk from house to car, turn heat on .. nice. walk from car to store... store is heated.. walk back to already heated car... nice.. walk back inside. Pants are was less confortable than shorts and if you can't withstand your skin hitting low temps for a small amount of time you are a bitch.
and I thought fast food threads brought out the autists. Turns out hot sauce really, really brings the autists and manchildren to circlejerk each other.
Now that I think about it this can be a good containment thread for these people.
I made a hot sauce this summer with a 50/50 mixture of ghost peppers and red hot chili peppers that I cooked in the smoker along with a couple of sweet red peppers. It's a nice hot sauce, it's stupid hot but it's flavourful enough that I only need to use a little bit.
To be honest, the part I've gotten the most enjoyment out of has been giving little jars of it to people I know who are into spicy food and watching them suffer through trying to eat it to impress me
On a cold day, when you just can't get warm, and underperforming heating won't warm up your home to comfortable levels, and you're short on money, a bowl of ramen with several drops of the super-hot sauce will get you near sweating from heat fast.
Other than that, it doesn't make much sense on flavorful food, but if you microwave some crappy pizza leftovers, or other crappy foodstuffs a few drops will make them quite palatable.
no. i like heat, but let's not pretend 2 drops of a super hot sauce gives you much actual flavor. the heat to flavor ratio is all fucked up. if you actually wanted flavor from chillies in a sauce then really someone should be making a chilli-based sauce where they've done everything they can to remove the heat, so you can actually experience the flavor of the peppers before the spiciness becomes overpowering.
Reminder that flyover land doesn't have flavorful or high quality food. Anyone who pretends otherwise is just being pretentious and literally wants to destroy America and all that she stands for.
Intensity, and a bit of masochism. For me it seems to stimulate some sort of near-euphoric (ha-ha) response once the heat is gone, probably similar to a runner's high or something. In this case I'm eating shitty food and sitting on my arse, though.
wife got me these for christmas for a laugh. all stupidly hot, they don't really taste of much. only really used them to feed to a friend who prides himself on eating hot stuff. thoroughly enjoyed watching him dying while trying not to let on that it hurts. he made some good noises.
naw, you just wear shorts because you are fat and fat people have trouble with pants.
I can almost imagine the shorts, too -- fat dude black shapeless 'basketball' shorts? I hope I am wrong.
It's pretty much the same phenomenom than when i wanted to cook with two of my friends and they wanted to put some fucking jack daniel in everything cause it made them feel cool I guess
when i was a smoker i could eat ridiculously hot food, no problem.. but now i'm a bit more sensitive
i went out for pasta dinner with the senpai on my birthday and my aunt gave me some insane hot sauce she found.. i wanted to put a bit on my pasta but it came out waay too fast.. i didn't want to let it ruin my food but holy shit was it hot..
i walked home and immediately diarrheaed
Its good for a change especially to just get some chips and enjoy the heat of course there's also going to be flavor there.
My brother's always buying these sauces, so I always decide to give them a try.
Most of them are pretty hot, but pic related really fucked me up.
Because most people actually like hot sauces and have taste buds unlike you and most of the shitposters on /ck/.
I'm the guy that had a thread about a trinidad moruga scorpion sauce couple days ago. The sauce has a really pungent smell and a very special taste. You can taste the actual hot sauce even though it is very hot. I made tortillas and 3 people ate them. Everyone could taste the sauce and the rest of the food without any issues.
I am an occassional hot sauce user. I personally enjoy the heat of hot sauces from time to time, they're especially great over light or fairly bland foods like eggs, chicken, pasta, or rice. I also do not happen to like the flavor of alcohol (which has nothing to do with the burn of higher percent alcohol or the flavor undertones beer, whiskey, etc. I literally just don't like the flavor of alcohol at all), so being able to ingest a little extreme fire from time to time keeps me in check with anybody who thinks hard whiskey is the best man-ticket. Also, Chipotle Tabasco sauce is actually fucking amazing with steak. The smokey undertones of the chipotle peppers with the hint of adobo in the sauce just works incredibly well with beef altogether, I highly recommend it as an honest great flavor enhancer.
As a Michigander that relocated to Texas, I confess that I was one of these "shorts in winter" types. I ever used to take out the garbage and whatnot in bare feet and shorts during winter, even in 3 feet of snow. Why, you ask? Well, a small percentage of me does feel more "masculine" about being able to do shit like that, but honestly the main reason was that long pants, boots, and socks with large snowbanks usually results in soaked pants and socks and snow/ice in the boots gettibg dragged into the house, which I absolutely fucking hate the feeling and mess of. So bare feet and shorts ended up becoming a quick way to prevent soaked clothes for me.
Cold weather never really bothers me either. Grew up a total poorfag with shitty heating in the homes I was in, and in the winter I could sometimes wake up for school being able to see my own breath while in my room. I guess I got used to it a little over time. I love hearing Texans whine about their opinions on what they consider cold and freezing though. Usually gives me a good laugh.
I grew up with shitty heating and no air conditioning, wear shorts most of the time (besides work really).
Roommates are pussies who crank the heat/ac and waste energy, don't go out if it's too hot or too cold.
This. After years of smoking I can barley taste spicy anymore. OP's insanity sauce is pretty good, so is Dave's ghost pepper sauce but my favorite is pic realted
Also wanted to note that pic related is one of my favorite sauces I've ever tried. Not super searing hot but it has a nice kick and it's backed up with sweet hints of pineapple and jamaican jerk seasoning, and it goes particularly well with fish.
i love the feeling
i put hot sauce on everything too, but i dont like the ultra hot sauces, tabasco is basically around where it starts getting uncomfy levels of spicy
just thinking about hot sauce makes my face start sweating
