Girvan Grille - Ghost Wing Challenge

 

We survived the Buffalo Wild Wings Challenge -- now, a new challenger arises! 

The Girvan Grill in Brooklyn Park claims to have the spiciest hot wings around. Oh? I want proof!

What I do know is that they prepare their hottest wings with none other than Bhut Jolokia Chili Peppers (Ghost Chilis), which are rated at 855,000 Scoville heat units!

For reference, that is nearly three times hotter than the hottest habenaro. Even approaching the severity of law-enforcement-grade pepper spray, which is rated at 500,000 units.

In any case, feel free to take the challenge or root on the competitors! They also have a variety of steak, chops, and seafood on their menu.

    Citypages review:
    "The surprising thing about Girvan's wings is their complexity of flavor, as most extremely spicy dishes tend to lack nuance. The sauce at first tastes a little woodsy, then slightly fruity, with hints of campfire and paprika. After those blissful few seconds, though, the ghost pepper begins its scary crescendo, blazing past the lips and mouth before settling in the stomach."

    Wow - after eating 10 wings, I had an out-of-body experience. I cannot understate this enough -- these things are HOT.

    Wings had really good flavor to go along with the heat. Cant wait to do it again and maybe go for their championship in the fall!

    I'm a big wing guy and have eaten a variety of ghost wings nationwide. At this point (N=9) Girvan has the tastiest variety yet. I'm fairly certain I cannot make this one but I hope those that do go enjoy it. I've eaten their wings at both the challenge (once for the challenge and twice for fun) as well as their tournament of champions (20 of them was a bad idea).

    Good luck everyone and enjoy.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
