This Burger Is Hot As Hell!

Kudos to he who first bit into a hot pepper, only to be jolted by its wonderful fiery wrath and relentless sting. We are all eternally grateful.

I only say this because I really do like it hot. So much so, that I’ve been told I have asbestos mouth. I suppose that’s what happens when one belches freshly squeezed habanero juice, after breakfast.

So, when I say something is spicy — believe me, it’s freakin’ hot.

That being said, trust me when I tell you that the warning next to the Hell Burger on the menu at Canvas Cafe and Bakery (724 Cherokee Street, Marietta, Tel: 678.213.2268) isn’t just there for show, nor is the “no return” policy. These written cautions and disclaimers are as serious as the burger’s prickly punch.

It starts as a harmless 8oz. cayenne pepper-dusted certified Black Angus patty. But it quickly goes downhill from there as a handful of fiery chilies and four chunks of roasted jalapeno — carefully cut so to contain as many seeds as possible — are added. Then, it is dressed with a messy heaping pile of habanero and onion slaw.

Sound hot? Believe it or not, I’m not finished yet. It then receives a smoldering homemade four-pepper hot sauce prepared with ghost chili (a.k.a. Bhut Jolokia chili pepper), habanero, serrano and jalapeno.

Additions of Pepper Jack cheese and sambal mayo must be formality, because this freakishly hot fire ball is so in-your-face spicy, these components are rendered to merely background noise.

I imagine it is dangerous just sitting across the table from a companion eating this napalm bomb. Wind from a belch across the way may fry your eyeballs.

This is likely a contender for spiciest burger on earth. It’s easily the hottest burger I’ve ever eaten.

    Does it come with a fire extinguisher?

  • kimmie

    Tom, did you really eat that?

    Kimmie, I split it with Melanie who couldn’t handle the heat so she pulled off most of those incredibly hot toppings. That’s good news for those who aren’t sure…..one can always scrape off the peppers, ghost chili sauce and habanero & onion slaw after the first bite or two if the heat is too much for you.

    I manned up and ate it all. It’s so damn hot, it actually made my eyes water. I don’t say that very often.

    Cheers!

    I hate you! haha! So, after a discussion a couple of days ago about going hot as possible I did it with ground venison and Jimmy Dean sage sausage with all but lettuce, tomato and ghost peppers. I do not have any ghost peppers. I am making it again tonight and doubling the serrano, keeping jalapeno, chipotle, poblano and roasted sambal in same 6th teaspoon (chopped) each amounts. Bought a fresh half gallon of Silk Sweet Coconut milk for courage and relief. Russet potatoes for my fries. If no one hears anything from me for a couple of days send help.

    Hey Chef when your wife and daughter are finished eating that creation of yours, you can come down for a Hell burger on me! : )
    Actually will be coming to Athens soon, on a project up there, so I could drop off some ghost chilis for you to play with, and we could finally meet.

    I would love it. Just send an email to hlamart@gmail.com

    I had a total of 1.2 ounces of peppers so it was more flavorful than burn crazy. Hung up on this thing so going to double the peppers tonight. Glutton for punishment. Adding banana peppers just for the hell of it.

    I ate the full load in a few minutes; I eat spicy stuff all the time and this did some damage. My eyes did tear up a bit and I made my way to the restroom to wipe the remnants from my beard. It was quite delicious though. Highly recommended, but you have been warned.
