I did these for a similar project a couple months ago. The heat-oriented ingredients I used for 2 1/2 lbs. of meat were: 180 g fresh habaneros (with all of their innards, not seeded), 2 dried ghost peppers, 20 g cayenne, 6 g chile flakes, 1 tbsp. Flash Bang sauce, 1 tbsp. Blair's Ultra Death sauce and 1 tbsp. Ass Blaster sauce. I ran into the same problem. They were hot, really hot... but not nearly as painful as I expected based on what went into them. The Flash Bang sauce is supposed to be 5 million scovilles and the Ultra Death is just a little short of 1 million which, along with the habs and ghosts, probably made the Ass Blaster (50,000 scovilles) cayenne and chile flakes irrelevant but they were in there. My current theory is that a significant amount of the capsaicin rides out with any fat that cooks out. It's oil soluble and if you poach the super-hot sausages, the water they were poached in gets pretty darn spicy. Especially the oil slick on top. But that's just a semi-educated guess, could be completely incorrect.

These shall be added tomorrow to my Texas hot link recipe. Ghost pepper powder and dehydrated Carolina Reaper.

Aren't you glad you don't work on the lines that pack those powders? That's got to be nasty.

 

I have a shaker jar of oven-roasted purira peppers blended with kosher salt, the result is a dark brown powdery dust that's guaranteed to blow out my sinuses when I handle it.
