Anyone try the 'Ghost Chile"?

Has anyone ever tried it and where can I try it in So Cal. I'm ready to take this dude on. Like the Ghostbusters song says, "I ain't afraid of no ghost."

Bhut Jolokia (also known as"Ghost Pepper" or Naga jolokia or Nai Mirris (Cobra Chilli)) is the hottest pepper in the world.       Being the (brazen) adventurist that I am, I have tried the hottest pepper on earth.

About this food


The bhut jolokia—also known variously by other names in its native region (see below), most commonly Naga jolokia — is a chili pepper generally recognized as the hottest in the world. The pepper is sometimes called the Ghost pepper by Western  media,  possibly erroneously.

The Bhut Jolokia is a naturally-occurring interspecific hybrid from the Assam region of northeastern India. It grows in the Indian states of Nagaland and Manipur, and the Sylhet region of Bangladesh. It can also be found in rural Sri Lanka where it is known as Nai Mirris (Cobra Chilli). There was initially some confusion and disagreement about whether the Bhut was a Capsicum frutescens or a Capsicum chinense pepper, but DNA tests showed it to be an interspecies hybrid, mostly C. chinense with some C. frutescens genes. In 2007, Guinness World Records certified the Bhut Jolokia as the world's hottest chili pepper, 400 times hotter than Tabasco sauce.
