World's Hottest Beef Jerky

worlds hottest beef jerky
I'm often asked what's the hottest beef jerky I've ever had.

It's hard to pin down one particular brand because I've had so many, and it's hard to keep a memory of how hot each one was compared to the other.  My tolerance for heat has also increased, so what seemed to be really hot four years ago, doesn't seem to be so hot now.

Here's a list of the world's hottest beef jerky, according to what I've tried...

Ed's Roadhouse Jerky - Inferno Ghost Pepper Jerky w/Scorpion Bite - This jerky is primarily marinated and seasoned with Ghost Peppers, and is then dusted with powdered Scorpion Peppers.  These two chiles are regarding as the world's hottest.  After eating one piece of this jerky, I couldn't eat more.  It was that hot!

Ed's Roadhouse Jerky - Inferno Ghost Pepper Jerky - This is the same jerky as above, but without the Scorpion Pepper dusting.  It's still extremely hot!

Trailhead Beef Jerky - XXX Naga Jolokia - Dusted with the Naga Jolokia pepper (also known as Ghost Pepper), these orange-red coated pieces of meat seem deceptive, but will can cause permanent psychological damage to your tongue.

The Jerky Connection - Satan's Flaming Hemorrhoids - If this jerky is hot enough to make Satan's sphincter swell with discomfort, imagine how you could use this to keep your mother-in-law on the toilet all evening long.

Damn Good Jerky - Death by Jerky - They add straight pepper extract to this jerky to maximize the burn.  Keep a towel handy to wipe the sweat running down your neck.

Alien Fresh Jerky - Colon Cleaner Hot - With a name like "colon cleaner", it ought to be hot, and this certainly delivers on burn.  This might be what aliens use to clean out a colon before probing.

Settlers Jerky - Ring of Fire - Made with a combination of cayenne pepper and habanero pepper, this jerky is also covered thick with red pepper flakes, elevating the burn to a high level.  You'll be reaching for some Immodium to stop a ring of fire of another kind.

Steve, The Inferno Ghost Pepper with the Scorpion Bite is made with the Scorpion pepper not just dusted.

Mr Herman,

I have ordered your ghost pepper jerky and it was hot as well as flavorful. With this impression I ordered the scorpion jerky but was disappointed. Same great flavor but no added heat.
