Hellfire Hot Sauce claims that the Right Hand of Doom Hellboy hot sauce tests at nearly 3,000,000 SHU, meaning it is incredibly spicy.

What peppers does Hellboy hot sauce use?
The Right Hand of Doom Hellboy hot sauce uses two different extremely spicy peppers: red habanero and Trinidad scorpion pepper. But interestingly, the chili peppers aren’t the primary heat source in this hot sauce. While this hot sauce clocks in at 3 million SHU, the spicier of the two peppers it uses, the Trinidad scorpion, is only 1.2 million SHU.
So what makes this hot sauce so spicy? It also uses pepper extract at an astounding 6.66 million SHU, which raises the overall heat of the hot sauce to almost 3 million SHU.
The other hot sauces contain a variety of different hot peppers including the bhut jolokia, 7-pot primo pepper, and reaper peppers.

Most people seem to really like Hellboy hot sauce, with the exception of people who didn’t expect it to be quite so hot.

People report using only a drop or two of the hot sauce to season an entire meal, and still experiencing extreme heat to the point of sweating.
