When it comes to the hottest of hot, the Wing Biz is notorious for great names for the flame! A label that truly does the Spiciest of Spicy, the Hottest of Hot, the Superior of Scovilles—feel like I am naming Babe Ruth! But in all fairness, the Sultan of Swat is a great comparison. He wasn’t just a good ballplayer, he was bigger than life. Like a ghost pepper in a stadium of bell peppers, he brought the heat and the world labeled him accordingly.
Here are a few of the names I have come by in my wing-tasting walk-about: Inferno, Three Mile Island, Braveheart, Scorchers, Atomic, Ghost Wings, Melt Your Fillings, 3-Alarm Fire, Molten, Volcano, and Barn Scorchers. Keep an eye out for other creative ways that people name the flame.
