World’s Hottest Burger Is A Short Drive Away
Start off with the concept that to just order one you have to sign a legal waver and then you are just starting to get the idea of what the Hellfire Burger is all about.
At the Xtreme Smokehouse and Grill in nearby Washington, Iowa this burger contains some of the spiciest peppers on the planet and registers at a alarming 1,000,000 units on the Scoville measurement scale. By way of comparison a Jalapeno is around 5,000 - 10,000 on the scale.
Loren Gingerich, owner of Xtreme Smokehouse and Grill told Fox News Food And Drink that the burger was created for fun and he didn't really expect it to take off. To his surprise he is making four or more daily.
The final kick to the blend of hot peppers and spices is a splash of grain alcohol and lighting the burger on fire. Gloves are mandatory as are goggles and you must be at least 18 years of age to order it.
And if this isn't enough there are plans for a Hellfire Chili. Road trip anyone?
