    is that a real printed bible??
    It is a real bible, I just looked for 5 mins to try to find mine but it is MIA at the moment.
    This sauce has piqued my interests -- does it have a strong vinegar taste? I hate it when sauces are more sour and vinegary than flavorful. This is also why I LOVE sliced jalapenos 'pickled' in oil and HATE jalapenos pickled in salt/vinegar brines.
    No, not real vinegary. Just a full flavor hot sauce, but I'd call it more warm than hot. Once, I put it in Kraft Dinner. As white trash as it sounds, it was fantastic.

    I'm surprised there's such little love for Dave's Insanity. I can't be the only one who only cares about heat when it comes to hot sauces.

    Just too hot for me. It covers up the flavor. I'm long past the "how hot can I make this" sauces. They just numb your taste buds, IMO.

    Has anyone made this? I just made my second batch, so easy, so cheap. I double the habañeros to make it a bit more spicy:

    Garlicky Red Chili Hot Sauce
    Published: August 20, 2010

    Time: 20 minutes plus 3 days' standing

    4 hot red or orange chili peppers, such as habañero
    2 red bell peppers ( 3/4 pound), roughly chopped
    5 garlic cloves, roughly chopped
    3/4 cup distilled white vinegar
    1/2 teaspoon kosher salt.

    1. Wearing rubber or latex gloves, roughly chop the chilies. Combine all ingredients in a small pot over medium-high heat. Once mixture is simmering, reduce heat to low, cover and continue to simmer until peppers are tender, 7 to 10 minutes. Do not inhale vapors; they will sting.

    2. Transfer mixture to a blender and purÃ[​IMG]e. Pour into a medium jar and allow to cool uncovered. Cover tightly and refrigerate for three days. Keep stored in refrigerator; sauce will last for several weeks or months.

    Yield: 2 cups.
    A version of this recipe appeared in print on August 25, 2010, on page D2 of the New York edition.

    Golden Mountain Sriracha Panich. The thai original. 54% chili content. Not to confuse with non-thai versions by Huy Fong Foods etc.

    I don't know about that being the very best, it is pretty good though.

    I'm pretty fond of Nando's peri-peri sauce...


    I'm pretty fond of their commercials

    My favourite hot sauce is Pain Is Good's Jamaican Hot Sauce: habaneros, pineapple juice, lime juice and jerk spices. [​IMG] Great with ribs!

    tie for first: korean gochujang and Tabasco
    third: sambal oelek
    fourth: sriracha

    franks red hot is too salty
    tapatio just tastes cheap to me
    all the other gimmicky sauces suck too (usually combine the following concepts: "kick-ass", "southern", "louisiana", black man's face on bottle)

    Is Japanese Yuzukosho available in the US? It is great...peppers and citrus and salt.

    Found a Blair's Ultra Death at my local Cost Plus.

    God this stuff is just ridiculous and inedible. It's a really nice heat if you figure out not to use too much.

    I've gone through a bottle of Tapatio because I can go through 3 bottles of Tapatio for the same price as one bottle of Cholula.

    I might just pick up a Cholula and some of this other stuff you guys are talking about. I've always been curious about the Sriracha Chili Garlic.
