Any Hot Sauce Fans out there?

ghostofuga1ghostofuga1 Posts: 639 ✭✭✭✭ Senior

I love hot and spicy food and try a lot hot sauces. Just wondering what others like and suggest. Just tried a Jamaican Scorpion Pepper sauce. Nice....and still warm to taste (after 20 minutes). Probably regret it about 3 in the morning, but worth trying.

Any favorites from the "Sauce" lovers?

Btw- the Scorpion Pepper Sauce is 780K on the Scoville Units...

    The Kroger I shop at carries it and looks like you can also buy it from Walmart.com and Amazon. It's just a tad bit sweet with a decent heat. I like to use it for wing sauce or chicken tenders. It's not something I would put on my collards, for example. Although, it might work. I will have to report back.

    Official: "The original tiger sauce is an exotic, moderately spicy blend of Ingredients in a cayenne pepper base. With a touch of sweet and sour, it's perfect for meats, seafood and poultry. Delicious on sandwiches, in dips and soups."

    I am also a wimp (prob a wimpy wimp). I just use Frank's Red Hot but with a 1/4 stick of butter sliced into 5-6 pieces and melt. I like the flavor but not the heat. I grill drums and then when cooked baste them and leave on grill for 3-5 minutes.

    Franks is my staple. Got the big bottle and it's in almost everything I eat....and the wife won't touch it...Lol!!

    And as far as your recipe, add some dark beer to it and boil it down. Trust me on this. ;)

    I love those, but, real talk, I gotta drink 3 beers just to get through them.

    Habanero got a lil **** to it. I prefer the flavor of jalapeño,serrano, anaheim, or pablamo

  • BigcalidawgBigcalidawg Posts: 336 ✭✭✭ Junior

    I like to buy the canned chipotle chiles. They’re hot and smokey

    Hate to use franks saying, but tiger sauce I put that **** on everything. Not much spice to it though.

    The Jamaican lady next door to me makes her own and gave me some. I thought it was unbelievable till I found what I believe to be a feather in it.

    A giant bottle of Frank's and a shaker of ground cayenne are my every meal staples. However, I grow some peppers that a neighbor shared with me 20 years ago. He was retired from 50+ years of farming and called them Rooster Spur peppers. These are not raised commercially. I have since found a couple of other peppers that are called the same name. Mine are shaped like the steel spur that is strapped onto fighting roosters; basically the shape of several types of Thai peppers. Take your basic Tobasco pepper and make it 1 1/2'' to 2'' long, more slender, and a pointed nose instead of the more rounded one on a Tobasco pepper. Then crank the Scoville units up to a little above a mature Serrano. I leave them on the plant until they mature (from green to orange then to a beautiful Bulldog Red). I won't eat them raw but air dry them thoroughly and at the end of the season put the dried peppers into the food processor and grind them until they are half fine ground (dust) and half looking like crushed red pepper flakes that you buy in the spice section at the grocery store. This I add to anything that needs to be punched up a bit...wing sauce, burger patties, pasta sauce, etc. YUM!

    I make my own sauce, but my favorite store bought is Marie Sharpe's. You can't beat the flavor. If you have ever been to Belize, then you know what I'm talking about. I can get it here in North Carolina at Ingles.

    This is the best hot sauce I've ever had, but I never see it on the shelves anywhere.

    My wife signed me up for a Hot Sauce of the Month Club with Heat Hot Sauce Shop for Christmas last year. I definitely recommend it! It made me try some new stuff I wouldn't have otherwise.

    I'm sure you know this but the green El Yucateco is good.

  • greshamdiscogreshamdisco Posts: 298 ✭✭✭✭ Senior

    These are my four favorites. Although it’s not that hot, Pickapeppa has a great flavor for anything from steak to fish to eggs, and it’s at most grocery stores.

    Haven’t tried that one. My favorite is actually Herdez green salsa moreso than the hot sauce I guess.

    This is the same brand as the one I have that got this thread started. The one below is what I got from my local Ingles. They usually carry a pretty good selection.

    Hot Chix is a must try sauce. They used to carry it at Publix years ago when I was a kid and everyone in my family got hooked on it. You can still find it occasionally at Whole Foods. I almost don’t like having it in the pantry because I’ll see it and start craving wings when I see it which aren’t that healthy. So when I got it, I shove it to the back of my pantry so I don’t see it unless I’m looking for it. And no, I never forget it’s there. Every person I’ve let try it over the last 20+ years has been like, “oh, that’s good!” The heat in there is just a flavoring. I’ve never seen anyone be put off by the stuff being too hot. But there is a little bit of heat to it.

    Crystal is my everyday hot sauce for subs or red beans or whatever else I may want to put it on. Cheaper and tastier than Tobasco brand sauce. Tobasco has just done a better job marketing. Crystal is the better sauce.

  • BigcalidawgBigcalidawg Posts: 336 ✭✭✭ Junior

    For the cheap hot sauce, I like Rooster
