The other thing that you can do to reduce the heat a bit, and bring out the flavor of the pepper is to Fire Roast them.

Roast the peppers over open flame or electric heat (like an in-door grill) until blackened.

While still warming wrap in a moistened paper towel. Let them sit a minute to soften the blackened skins, then slide most of the black off, leaving some (up to taste) of the blackened skin for flavor.

Using you favorite parring knife slit the sides of the peppers, and "fillet" the seeds and ribs out.

Chop peppers to desired coarseness for use.

IMO roasting give any of the Habanero family peppers a much better flavor than using the "fresh" pepper.

I tried a piece of reaper pepper about the size of half a pinky finger nail, that was hotter than hades, coworkers did half of quarter of the pepper and they were out for awhile; cant imagine dragon's breath...

Are you making straight ghost pepper or adding in cheese? I had some ghost pepper sticks last weekend from super one, I'm not totally convinced they were even ghost pepper, but just plain and I didn't think they were great. The hot pepper sticks I've had with various cheeses, like swiss, are usually pretty good. Might cut the heat down a bit too. I know LM Fleet and other similar stores like Runnings carry the Backwoods high temp cheeses for sausage making. Just a thought.

Cheese is like bacon, it makes most things better, I'd add cheese.

You should be able to get high temp cheese anyplace that makes it's own smoked sausage or even fresh sausage. I get mine from a Cub store that has a service case and sells fresh bratwurst in that case. good luck.

Well the ghost pepper sausage turned out better than expected! Very good pepper flavor and not too hot. By the end of the test patty I was sweating with a pretty good mouth burn though, but nothing crazy. If I would have left the inside of the pepper in I'm sure it would have been crazy hot. I used about 40% pork but with the venison. I chopped up the peppers and onions then sauteed them for a while. I got lazy and just used fresh bratwurst seasoning by Backwoods and blended it all together to a loose paste. Mixed it well into the sausage and ground it a second time then stuffed into hog casings. (Yes I used gloves for the mixing) I'll be doing this again the fresh pepper flavor is excellent.

I absolutely love spicy food and I'm talking the hotter the better but I'd imagine if you left the seeds and membrane intact that would be a pool of instant regret in the bottom of that blender! Good to hear the flavor turned out right for you.
