Netriders, based on an epic thread derail where new NR Kelz asked me if I was a 'chilli connoiseur' and Andrew West and I just went on a tangent waffling on about peppers and hot sauce I thought the polite and correct thing to do was to start a dedicated topic. I love chillies. I love hot food. I have grown and eaten many of the superhot varieties plus many that weren't superhots. I've got a ton of sauce recipes to share if anyone wants them. I know a lot of people love chillies and hot curries so why not dedicate a topic to it?! we can talk about chilli varieties, growing, cooking preserving, how you became interested in them, hottest thing you've ever eaten, whatever. of course thread derails are acceptable and expected - I'll probably be responsible for most of them, lol!
