Attention all Scoville fans: on Wednesday 17th November at 7pm, The Blues Kitchen is teaming up with Manchester’s DevilDog Sauces to host a Flaming Hot Wings eating competition. This will unfurl over five rounds of turned-up heat but don’t worry if you don’t have the constitution for it, it’s free to enter for all spectators.

If you feel this is something you can handle, sign up at the link below to be one of the fifty cast-iron bellied people to take part.

Each round The Blues Kitchen’s superb wings will be coated in one of DevilDog’s glorious spicy sauces, hotter each until the final round, where you’ll be hit with spice like you’ve never experienced before. The evening will be hosted by Manchester’s own Tilly Tillz who will keep you laughing while competitors undergo the toughest meal of their lives.

DevilDog Sauces have created a special sauce for the final round

The first round sees competitors munch on wings coated in DevilDog’s Mango, Scotch Bonnet & Lime sauce, a nice light 400,000 Scoville units to start – easy work for the pros, less so for amateurs. Round two, Reaper, Scorpion & 7 Pot Chilli sauce – a blend of Carolina Reaper (1.6 million Scoville units give or take), Trinidad Scorpion Butch T (roughly, 1.2 million units) and 7 Pot Primo (up to 1.3 million units), which makes for an xtra hot sauce that will likely cause participants to break a sweat.

For round three, the feared Naga Viper – a fiery combination of the Trinidad Scorpion, the Naga Morich and the Ghost Pepper – with Asian spiced plum & raspberry. Be ready for a slow searing burn with this one weighing in at 1.4 million Scoville units. Don’t be fooled by the fruity flavours, they are spiced so won’t don’t do much to ease the xxtra hot spice. The legendary Caroline Reaper makes a comeback in round four with a dash of blackberry & lemon and thyme. This pepper is red and gnarled, with a bumpy texture and small pointed tail – the devil in pepper form.

Survivors will proceed onto the fifth and final round, where DevilDog Sauces have created a special sauce for the occasion. Category: Stupid Hot. Created with Armageddon Chilli, clocking in at 1.3 million Scoville units, 400 times hotter than your average jalapeño, white vinegar and red bell peppers. The winner will receive the grand prize of legend status and a sweet £50 tab to spend on food and drink at The Blues Kitchen.

If you can’t handle the heat simply come for some of The Blues Kitchen’s delightful (and more manageable) Buffalo Chicken wings then sit back and enjoy the show.
