Where do you rank yourself when it comes to being able to handle hot & spicy foods?  I'll go ahead and put myself at a 5.  If you can take the heat on a much higher level - this might peak the interest of your taste buds!

It's a multi-round contest that will increase in heat until they crown a "2019 Western Montana Fair Chili Pepper Champion."  The winner takes home a trophy and some pretty awesome bragging rights.
