Crying kids, crying vegans, Iceland learns to fear the reaper; and that’s just the tip of this week’s Hot News, covering the worlds of peppers and barbecue.
According to a report from The Daily Mail, a man in China downs five pounds of chiles each and every day. I don’t eat five pounds of food each day, let alone all chile peppers, all the time.
You’d think that with summer winding down and fall muttering, “C’mon, c’mon, c’mon” as it waits to take over, grilling and barbecue news would take a turn for the mundane. That weird stories of barbecue and hot sauce would go into hibernation, like some gigantic bear with hard arteries and a desperate need for TUMS.
