Tampa Bay Food Challenge: Quaker Steak & Lube Triple Atomic Hot Wing Challenge

In the fine tradition of “my people” (aka idiots), I, the Tampa Bay Food Monster, have once again taken on one of Tampa Bay’s Food Challenges. This time (in 2011), I visit Florida’s only Quaker Steak & Lube to take on their Triple Atomic Hot Wing Challenge.

Quaker Steak & Lube’s super-intense Triple Atomic sauce is measured at 500,000 Scoville Units, landing it at a mere 100 times as hot as a jalapeño.

Few sane people would get near such heat, let alone put it in their mouths. Watch and recoil in horror as I try to keep my shit together and power through 6 of the hottest wings I’ve ever eaten.

This event was briefly chronicled by the legendary Walt Belcher for TBO. That article can be found here.
