A few weeks ago, I witnessed my buddy Chad attempt to take on two “Triple Atomic Challenges,” back to back, at a Quaker Steak and Lube. These wings are so hot that you have to sign a waiver just to order them, and eating an entire order of 5 gets your name on the wall. We bet Chad $50 that he couldn’t eat 10, with nothing to drink but Bud Light.
For some background, these wings are made with ghost chilis and measure 500,000 Scoville units [wikipedia] of heat. For comparison, A jalapeño pepper measures 2,000-8,000 Scovilles. Triple Atomic wings are seriously hot.
Rather than spoil the whole thing, an edited video of his attempt can be seen here. Trust me, it’s well worth the 11 minutes to watch the whole thing.
