Our Winter 2021 issue of Stock & Barrel centers around hot and warming eats, and we decided to run with that theme a little bit.
Against our better judgement, the (614) Media Group staff took on six local hot sauces, ranging in heat from mild to ambulance-on-speed-dial hot. We took turns drawing numbers to see who would get which wing.
Yours truly ended up with the spiciest: the ultra-hot Cry Baby 6 from North Market’s Flavor & Fire. At six million Scoville units (the index used to measure the spiciness of peppers), one serving of the sauce is nearly three times as hot as the Carolina Reaper, the hottest pepper in the world.
You can imagine how things end up, but now you can also watch for yourself.
You can read the issue here as well.
