Ghost Chili: The World's Hottest Pepper

Ghost Chili aka Bhut Jolokia is one hot pepper. This pepper is from the Assam area of India. In Scoville Units a habanero is 580,000. But, a Ghost Chili is 1,001,304. It's known as the hottest pepper in the Guinness Book of World Records.
Some say it's like swigging a cocktail of battery acid and glass shards. But, this pepper is used to cure stomach troubles. And a way to fight summer heat. Don't ask me how that works.
Adam Richman of the Travel Channel's Man vs. Food tackled this pepper. And, it just blew his shirt off.
