PHOENIX -- Talk about hot stuff!

You may think you've had hot wings, but until you've tried the nuclear atomic hot wings at 347 Grill at the UltraStar Multi-tainment Center at Ak-Chin Circle, you don't know what hot is!

On Good Morning Arizona Wednesday, our brave Javier Soto got to sample some of the fiery wings for himself. It wasn't long before he realized he had a mouthful of five alarm heat!

Executive Chef  Brian Kontos and Chef de Cusine Charles Dellipizzi turned up the heat to make their famous hot wings.

"We sat aorund and we were discussing how we should  make something people really want to taste and remember," Chef Kontos says.

So how hot is hot? Customers actually have to sign a waiver to eat wings doused in the nuclear atomic sauce.

And if a customer manages to eat 12 wings without crying or washing them down with something, they get their picture added to the "Wall of Flame"!

Even the chefs are affected by the fumes. "Chefs who put it together,  they have to wear aspirators, because of their nasal passages," Kontos tells us.

Just to give you an idea how hot this sauce is, we took a look at the Scoville Scale, which measures the heat of peppers. A jalapeno measures about 1,0,000.  Habeneros come in at about  200,000. But this sauce uses ghost peppers, which measure at an inflammatory 1.2 million! Sound the alarm!

347 Grill is just one of the places to visit at the new Ultrastar Multi-tainment Center at Ak-Chin Circle. You'll also find a movie theater, bowling alley, lounge, and a two story laser tag facility.
