hot wings challenge

WARNING: We’re Melting Mouths with Metropolitan’s Hot Wings Challenge!

Equipped with a camera, hot sauce and several kilos of chicken wings, we put colleagues to the test in Metropolitan’s Hot Wings Challenge.

This ongoing series is both a creative outlet and punishment of others, as we deep fry wings and coat them in the hottest sauces from around the globe.

These sauces push the Scoville Scale to its limits. It’s safe to say that the Colonel’s Wicked Wings have got nothing on our devilishly dangerous bites.

General FAQ

Hot sauces are measured on the Scoville Scale. For over a century, this unit of measurement has been used to rate the amount of capsaicin present in peppers, which is the chemical that gives them their heat. The higher the Scoville rating (SHU), the hotter the sauce.
Currently, Mad Dog 357 No. 9 Plutonium is the hottest sauce in the world. Measuring in at a whopping 9 million SHUs, this sauce is so hot that it comes with a disclaimer that relinquishes the brand from all responsibilities surrounding potential fallout. You can pick up a bottle of Mad Dog 357 No. 9 Plutonium for around $127.
According to the Guinness World Records, the hottest pepper is Smokin Ed's 'Carolina Reaper', which rates at an average of 1,64 million SHU. However, there’s a new challenger on the scene. ‘Dragon’s Breath’ is said to have a rating of 2.48 million SHU. Dragon’s Breath was created by Nottingham Trent University during trials to create a plant food that increases the quality and resistance of plants.

5 stars rating

Trent was brilliant, arrived on time and did a great job replacing our kitchen mixer tap on a Saturday evening after our existing tap fell apart. Hoping we don’t need emergency services again, but would definitely use them again!

Marc - VIC

Metropolitan arrived at my door quickly and promptly. Joel diagnosed a gas leak coming from the fittings to my freestanding cooktop and sorted the issue fast. He had my gas back up and running again in no time.

Adrian - WA

Metropolitan was the first to respond to me as I had a leaking shower. They were quick to send out a plumber within the hour. Jake phoned before arriving and he gave plenty of options. The service was quick and easy.
