Few pieces of poultry are more feared than Nashville hot chicken. Traditionally spiced with cayenne pepper, and served on slices of white bread with a side of pickles, the dish has its roots at the legendary Prince's Hot Chicken Shack in Music City.

Still, some 2,000 miles away in Los Angeles, California, one man is pushing Nashville Hot Chicken to new and frightening extremes. Forgoing cayenne for a fistful of Carolina Reapers, chef Johnny Zone is cooking up the most sizzling birds west of the Mississippi River at Howlin’ Ray's in Chinatown.

Of course, Sean Evans had to stop by Ray's to see what all the hype was about. Never truly on vacation from Hot Ones, Sean met up with comedian Brian Redban and proceeded to get a chile pepper high off some scorching, Reaper-rubbed wings.

Check out the video above to see Redban eat a napkin in the hopes of stopping the pain.
