Cook Has to Wear Gas Mask While Preparing World’s Hottest Drumstick Sauce


Muhammed Karim, the mad chef in charge of spicy dishes at Bindi Restaurant, in Lincolnshire, England, claims he has created the world’s hottest drumstick sauce in the world. It’s called the Atomic Kick Ass, and yes, it’s like an atomic bomb going off in your mouth.

So just how hot is this crazy concoction, you ask? Well, Muhammed has to put on a gas mask whenever he prepares it, to avoid passing out from the fumes, so that should give you an idea. If you need more technical data, you should know the Atomic Kick Ass sauce scores 12 million units on the Scoville scale of hotness, several times more than police pepper spray.

34-year-old Muhammed Karim says eating his special sauce “feels like putting an iron on your lips and leaving it there”. It also comes with a series of side-effects that have regularly forced those foolish enough to try it into the back of an ambulance. Facial paralysis, body shakes and even internal bleeding are all possible outcomes of consuming Atomic Kick Ass sauce, so the Bindi restaurant requires daredevils to sign a waiver before going anywhere near the stuff. ”The last guy who tried it was sweating all over. He was slapping his face to try and feel anything but it was paralyzed,” Karim said. “The body gets this massive rush which can paralyze their face for up to 30 minutes and give them body shakes.”

In order to deal with any medical emergencies, the staff at Bindi restaurant is trained in First Aid so they can look after customers before paramedics arrive.

The owner of Bindi restaurant adds that his sauce “is like weaponry”, and has to be kept under lock and key to prevent people from accidentally using it. Those willing to test their resilience can take the restaurant’s “Atomic Kick Ass Challenge”, for the chance to win £100. All they have to do is eat 10 fiery drumsticks covered in sauce in under 15 minutes. So far, only 20 people have taken the challenge, and the record currently stands at 2 drumsticks.

The Atomic Kick Ass sauce is made with some of the world’s hottest peppers, including Moruaga Scorpion and Carolina Reaper, as well as five milliliters of special chili extract, measuring a whopping 13 million Scoville units. It’s so strong that any customers attempting the challenge are required to wear two pairs of gloves.

But it seems Mr. Karim is not yet satisfied with the hotness of his sauce and is currently working on something even stronger. ”My Bangladeshi mother is currently growing a hybrid chilli called the Hulk, which will be all the hottest chillies in one and register 3 million Scoville on its own,” he said. Yummy, I can’t wait…
