Hottest sausage: The 'Devil's Sausage' sets world record
STIRLING, Scotland, UK --
The "Devil's Sausage", created by butcher brothers Jason and Garry Rendall at Rendalls Quality Butchers in Raploch, contains pork, sweet chili, jalapenos and the so-called "ghost pepper" Bhut Jolokia (which is 401.5 times hotter than Tabasco sauce) , setting the world record for the hottest sausage.

The Guinness world record for the longest vegetarian sausage measured 101 m (331 ft 4 in) and was achieved by Metzgerei Schnitzel e.V. (Germany) in Dusseldorf, Germany.
Guinness World Records also recognized the world record for the longest sausage roll: 111.11 m (364 ft 6.4 in), achieved by King Pie in Faerie Glen, South Africa.
Butcher brothers Jason and Garry Rendall, whose previous creations include a Buckfast pie, said they have sold hundreds.
The sausages are selling for £7 a kilo or £2.50 for a hot roll, which has become a big favourite with workmen who frequent the Drip Road shop.
The World's Hottest Sausage is so hot its creators at Rendalls Quality Butchers in Raploch, Stirling, must wear gloves and goggles to make them.
Jason, 28, said locals were competing to see who could manage a whole one.
"We warn people 'eat the devil's sausage at your own risk'. But we also warn our customers not to eat them if a heart condition, and we won't sell them to young children - at least not without their parents' permission."
"The look on people's faces is priceless. Big tough guys say 'I'll have one, no problem, I love hot food', but after biting into their roll and sausage their expression soon changes and they're reaching for a drink. They can't handle it. "Word has spread so fast we're struggling to keep up," the Scotsman quoted Jason as saying.
