    Right now Im eating a salsa heavily flavored with Dave's Insanity Sauce which made heavy use of pure Capsaicin extract. My nose is running, my eyes are watering and if it wasn't for some releif with a brief sip of milk in my house I don't think I could handle it.

    However I heard you NWer's have access to even hotter stuff than my Dave's Insanity Sauce which is Dixie's BBQ which serve's a special hot sauce known as "The Man". My Dave's Insanity Sauce is 180,000 scoville units, which is 36x hotter than Tobasco Sauce. "The Man" is rumored to have as many as 500,000 scoville units!

    Has any of you been to Dixie's BBQ? I think I MIGHT like to visit it sometime, but I'm not quite sure Im ready to handle "The Man". Who here has tried it, what was it like, and do you recommend it for tourists such as myself who might be in the area?

    I haven't been to Dixie's in years, but it was good last time I went. Gene was a great guy - always had something unusual out on the BBQ. He ran an auto repair place in the back and the restaurant out front. He'd run around trying to bait people into trying "The Man" - I've seen a few people try it, but I always passed. I'm not sure it would be the same experience without him around anymore.

    I have heard rumors about the stuff and know a few friends that have met "The Man". Never knew the name of the place though.

    It was definitely a hot sauce at Dixie's. The food quality has gone down and the price has gone up since "The Man" himself passed away.

    The line would go out the door and almost around the building some days. "The Man" would walk up and down the line chatting with people. He once walked past me, stopped, then turned around to tell me "Man, you look like a bad dude". Then asked how my overweight friend was doing using the following phrase: "How you doin', big bad mamma-jamma".

    Going to Dixie's was great, but the last time I went, I was disappointed. It's just not the same without the big guy.

    There's other stuff too. Ever try raspberry thunder sauce, or Pure Pain? Pure pain comes in levels of 50-100% Pure pain. Fried Habanero peppers slathered in Raspberry thunder sauce, emmm emm.

    I've met the man at Dixies a few times. A dime sized dollop on your meal is enough to bring tears. Its ridiculously hot and ruins the food. All you can taste is heat and pain.

    Last couple of times I went there, I remembered how bad it is and said "no thanks" to the man. It really is the hottest hot sauce out there.

    I agree with edogg.

    I ate there twice when I lived in Seattle 10 years ago. I tried their hottest sauce and it was so hot it must have temporarily shorted out my taste buds because I couldn't taste the meat. The next time I tried their next cooler sauce and it was good...but I've had better.

    Never had their hot sauce but did have lunch there a couple of years ago. It was OK but not impressive at all.
    However I am not one for hot foods. I like to taste what I eat.

    I met the man a few times between 2004 and 2007. It's for real. If you're in Seattle area and looking for HOT also check out a place in Kirkland called the Wing Dome, if it's still there. They have a pretty insane hot sauce too. if I remember right, the only way to get the full-on HOT wing was to order your way up to it, passing the various "tests" along the way.

    Last time I met the man was back in 03 or 04. I was working for a gun shop, and the gunsmith and I kept encouraging each other to kill more of it. Probably put away at least 2 teaspoons worth of it. No joke, it's the hottest thing I've ever tried. Makes the #7 wings at Wingdome seem like Tabasco.

    Wing Dome has gone downhill. Try Buffalo Wild Wings in Lynnwood. It's a lot better and they have some pretty hot ones too.
