created by Ron Bruns. He claims it is the “hottest pie”. Now I get very skeptical of these claims because they’re usually marketing propaganda. But in this case he has actually submitted it to a laboratory to measure its Scoville rating, and to Guinness World Records. He also applied for a trade mark ! Hasn’t eaten his own pie.

Ron used to claim the unofficial “hottest pie” title for the Flaming Ron when he packed it full of naga jolokia or “viper” chillies until they were superceded on the SHU Scoville heat rating scale by the Trinidad Scorpion Butch T pepper. The baker wears gloves, eyewear, and a chemical mask during cooking!

they’ve also called it “the Hottest Natural Chilli Pie in the World”

So now the twisted baker uses both, as well as a habanero just for good measure.

lots of awards in Aussie meat pie comp, for restaurants. Held in Sydney . Official Great Aussie Pie Competition (website , Facebook ).

A journalist from The Daily Telegraph wrote ,

“There’s an unofficial award that gets handed out around News Ltd from time to time for going ‘above and beyond’.

It was named after Papua New Guinea journalist Simon Eroro who once agreed to be circumcised with bamboo sticks in order to land an exclusive interview with a band of reclusive and savage jungle rebels.

Even THAT sounded better than a second round with a Flaming Ron.”

The disclaimer  sets of maximum of 4 pies!
