The contest will give pepperphiles 10 minutes to eat as many of Wicked Awesome's delicious chicken meatballs as possible. The catch? Aside from each meatball being plenty spicy, a few select 'balls per tray will be laced with ultra-hot ghost peppers. Contestants looking to cool their mouths won't find much respite, either; the only beverage allowed to be consumed during that 10 minute window is Billy's Chilies from Twisted Pine Brewing Company of Boulder, Colorado. The mouth-tingling beer is made with Fresno, Anaheim, jalapeno, habanero, and Serrano peppers.
Whatever lucky winner can stand the heat will end up with an epic prize: one of every craft beer that Wicked Awesome stocks, a prize worth $300.
