    Not to be a hater, but why do you guys want your food to be so spicy hot?

    I like almost everything I eat to be spicy... don't know why. It's just good!

    Favorite sauce I've had is Steven's hot sauce, only one retailer in the U.S. sells it I think. It's got alot of flavor that's used in Sofrito in puerto rican food.

    Other than that, I really like Yucateo Red or Green

    You know what it is funny is that I like spicy foods, i just don't like eating them. It is hard to explain.

    Anyway, this is always my question when food is made spicy.

    I seem to remember telling this story here but fuck it i'll tell it again.

    Anyway, one of the podcasts I listen to, one of the hosts has a Thai or Indonesian boss. And he really likes hot sauce. So, for X-mas, dude got his boss this hot sauce and they keep increasing the heat every year. His boss is putting it on his steak like its ketchup and the dude starts tearing up it is so spicy and HE KEPT POURING IT ON saying "this is so good etc.

    Why yes, I sometimes like food with my hot sauce.

    I'm hardly a hot sauce connoisseur, so I stick to Tabasco. However, I only recently started using it, so I expect I'll begin trying new brands soon. I'll probably try a few listed in this thread.

    nah, I doubt it. I just found it chillin on a supermarket shelf in Tokyo, haven't tried it yet. It seems like it's yuzugoshou mixed with vinegar, like a tabasco I guess. Thinner consistency.

    FWIW I really like Tabasco too, only the original red one though. It has its uses. I hardly cross-use hot sauces, like I would never use Sriracha on pizza - I eat Tabasco on pizza (yes I live in Asia) and I don't really use the Mexican stuff except for on Mexican foods or eggs.


    sriracha on pizza is fucking amazing, you're missing out

    Red pepper flakes on pizzas are pretty bland, even Tabasco is better.

    House of Tsang: Szechuan Stir-Fry Sauce

    Great on beef, chicken, grilled veggies, etc. Pretty spicy, but lots of flavor.

    It's been a while for this thread.

    I'm working on something I might actually share with a few of you.

    I have been aging some jolokia mash for about a year and a half now. I'm going to make a sauce very similar to Tobasco's out of it. I'm also infusing some tequila with cayenne peppers and lime. I'm going to blend these two together in some proportion. It's going to be on the hot side for sure but not insane like some of the stuff out there. It should be very interesting stuff with a complex mix of tastes and sensations.

    Thoughts?

    I just started dipping my toes in the hot sauce world. Frankly, there are too many choices so it's a bit overwhelming. Right now I am trying out:

    Georgia Peach & Vidalia Onion - Sweet and only slightly spicy. Super good!

    Hot Sauce ( Mild ): Ring of Fire Garden Fresh - Not very good. Has a weird saltiness.

    Marie Sharp's: Marie Sharp's Mild Pepper Sauce - This is the spiciest of the bunch but tolerable. They consider it mild which is great for me.

    I'm not sure this counts as hot sauce, its more chilli paste and oil, but it does shit on every other hot sauce mentioned in this thread. It's also wildly unhealthy, though, otherwise I'd use it more.

    Cholua is nice. Good vinegar taste and mild spice. Tapatio is similar and also good.


    I really like the "Pain is Good" Cayenne sauce. Excellent flavor and a touch of heat, a clear upgrade over Cholua or most other basic sauces.

    El Maya habanero is also good, and a step up on the heat level.

    Blair's original death sauce brings really good habanero and chipotle flavor. at first bite you think it's going to hit hard, but the heat doesn't linger.


    every once in a while i'll do a drop or two of Dave's Insanity Sauce on a chip. just for the fun.
