I’ll admit it wasn’t always the case but once I experienced the pleasant sensation of my mouth burning I was hooked; they say chillies release the same endorphins as sex and chocolate so that may explain everything.
That being the case I didn’t hesitate on Wednesday when asked if I wanted to take part in the Death by Food: Burn-Out Rib Challenge being run by the Red Dog Saloon in association with Universal Pictures recent film, A Million Ways to Die in the West, which stars Seth Macfarlane, Liam Neeson, Neil Patrick Harris and Charlize Theron.
The challenge was quite simple:
- Three extra-large ribs coated in a hot spicy sauce
- Three minutes to finish
- Three minutes burn time
I’ve eaten at the Red Dog a lot so I kinda knew what to expect. I haven’t, as yet, done their hot wing challenge but I’ve eaten more of their ribs than is decent and didn’t think it would be impossible. Was my confidence misplaced?
