Buffalo Wild Wings is a national chain restaurant, but their eating challenge is definitely not vanilla. You have to eat 12 of their “Blazin’ Wings” in 6 minutes to beat the Blazin’ Challenge, which has claimed many victims over the years. It’s a heat challenge rather than a volume challenge, as most casual diners should be able to handle a dozen chicken wings without much struggle.
The challenge’s difficulty comes from the no-water and no-napkin rules in effect. Estimates vary, but I’ve read that the “Blazin'” sauce used by BWW clocks in somewhere around 250,000-300,000 scoville units. It’s got a strong habanero kick.
Critics may mock this one as an “entry level” heat challenge. Obviously, much stronger sauces and heat challenges exist. This is still a good one. I defeated it alongside Matt “Sweet Tooth” Cohen a few months ago, and I’d do it again.
Prizes vary according to location. Your prize could be a picture on the wall, glory, free t-shirt, free headband, all of the above, or none of the above. Check with the server before ordering. It will set you back about $10.

A map of Buffalo Wild Wings shows them to be in most if not all 50 states. I Didn’t see one in Wyoming, but that may be it.
