I did sample some Dave's Insanity salsa once, and the endorphin rush with that one was kinda enjoyable once my teeth nerves stopped throbbing.


Cholula's not too shabby IMO either. 032.gif

ELYUCATECOSALSACHIPOTLE.jpg

It starts here and ends here, my hands down favorites are the El Yucateco sauces, Red, Green and XXX.

 

But there are still a lot of sauces that I like, e.g. I like all pretty much all the Tabasco sauces.

Yeah, Tabasco isn't too shabby.  Haven't had the chance to try the boutique flavors of it yet though. :up:

 

This is the only hot sauce I ever threw away.  Tried two bottles of it before I learned better.  I don't see what all the fuss about it is. unsure.png

Depends. Good old Tabasco for eggs and stuffed peppers. Frank's on chicken, Hell's Kitchen for other things.

 

There is no one-size-fits-all answer...kind of like it is with guns.

That chicken on the bottle shows what it is......chickenshit!   Tried it on eggs, man that crap was horrid!

 

Trappy's ain't too bad straight as BBQ sauce on pulled pork and ribs.  A little weak on heat, but less sharp taste than Tabasco.

 

Cholula....like it!

Gaddis nailed it and thank you.  Choluma Original.  Great taste.  Not TOO hot.  Also works great on cloggy pipes.  You know, the personal sit down jobs.  :)

Now ya see how taste can differ.

Regular Sriracha is ho-hum, but I do like their 'Chili Garlic' and really like their 'Sambal Oelek'

I just bought a case of the El Yucateco red from Walmart. They don't stock it around here, so mail order works.

Well, there are enough Hispanics hanging out at my local Wal Marts so... :unsure:

 

I think I did get the two bottles of Sriracha I tried at this Wal Mart, so I'm surprised that I didn't see the El Yucateco if it was there.

 

Sriracha is much too sweet for my tastes.  Hot sauce needs to be salty if you dump it raw on the stuff you eat. :super:


Now ya see how taste can differ.

I think I got a few KFC hot sauce packets out in the van somewhere (probably under one of the seats).  That's about as exotic as I usually go. :lol:

 El Yucateco sauces and SOB (South of the Border) are my regular go to stuff. Now if you want something to put hair on your ass, my buddy got me a bottle of sauce called Flash Bang. Two drops of that in a bowl of chile is all it takes...real WOW factor.

I like Tobasco on BBQ sandwiched with mustard slaw, Crystal and Louisiana and Franks all about the same like generic hot sauces you find at the Dollar store or big store brands, all good. Sriracha good to cook with like BBQ beans or on sardines or viennas and crackers.

Ice cream?

Amen! I dislike the vinegary sauces, and the heavy garlic of sriracha isn't for me.

Hmm, that's really not a bad idea. It probably wouldn't be too shabby if you put it on chicken before BBQ'ing it. :up:


Ah, well, at the local Wal Mart today. On the shelf, Louisiana, Cholula, Texas Pete, and regular old Tabasco.  Lot's of exciting choices there for the hot sauce connesuer. :rolleyes: dry.png

I never much cared for the vinegar ones like posted above. Sadly I can't say what my favorite hot sauce is beside a few self made attempts. Basically it works like this:

 

Step 1) go to the huge fish-smelling asian market of choice. 

Step 2) fill a cart about half way with any interesting, suspicious, or confusing: chili oil, paste. fermented hot bean? Pepper? Fish byproduct?, etc. Pay something like $30 for the whole cart full of food.

Step 3) Sample my way through. Anything that seems good gets kept with a picture of the label saved somewhere or other.

Anything bad gets chucked, hopefully remembering not to buy it again.

Step 4) I use it for a year or so, then chuck it when it gets old enough to be another kind of sketchy.

Step 5) attempt to find the same thing again and fail. 

 

The really good ones are a flavorfull, but generally intense hot. Not bitter like a lot of those mentioned above. Never could stand tabasco's aftertaste. One of my favorites would give me a stomach ache if I used more than a few drops in a large pan of food. It was potent. Don't get me wrong, I can handle about as much heat as anyone I've come across. I choose not to obliterate other flavors generally though. Heat is a component of good food, but not the whole show. One-up-man-ship has always been retarded. What I want is a good tasting hot, not just pride in the ability to choke something painful and nasty down.

 

I really like the flavor of Herdez brand canned chipotles in mole. Those are a near perfect flavor. Those with a bit of good smoky jalepeno, and some mild chili powder, and some garlic are a good starting point for a lot of good meals.

Heh, I used to think that way (homemade Kogu Jang (Korean soybean paste hot sauce)) until I found that old Mama San five foot long hair in it. wacko.png 

 

Nice people the Koreans who live in this country usually are, but I always had to wonder how many times per year old Mama San's hair got introduced to the Prell hair shampoo bottle. 028.gif
