Hi, I want to get a bottle of hot sauce, but I'll probably have to order it online. Anybody know any good hot sauces out there? The best in my opinion are the ones that have a good balance between flavor and spiciness. I don't like hot sauce which are all "spice" and no flavor.

I love Hot Sauce and throw it on just about everything. As far as commercial Hot sauces, Frank's Red Hot is my favorite. I have found many good hot sauces that are more on a local or regional level as well.

I guess I'm just boring, I like Tabasco sauce or Louisiana hot sauce. I have never tried Frank's, so I suppose I will be making a trip out to the store to get some. I have just always grew up on the first two. I really like the Chipotle flavored Tabasco sauce.. nice smokey flavor!

Hothead over here! I like cayenne and habanero pepper sauces mostly, jalapeno pepper sauces tend to range from poor to alright. Some of the ones from Asia burn at both ends. Some of the habaneros ones I liked did not have the brutal heat that some do, but give just enough heat to make you remember it. I like some of the lesser known more boutique brands, Tabasco is alright, but some of the Mexican hot sauces make it look like water in comparison.

When cooking, we usually use Franks as a base for flavor, but heat it up (I don't refer to Franks as "hot" sauce) with a combination of actually hot hot sauces. We use Tabasco (regular and habanero), Arizona Gunslinger, and Dave's Insanity (3 varieties all the way up to the one that comes in the wooden coffin. Be VERY careful with any variety of Dave's. It will f**k you up!), and a few others.

Two interesting hot sauces I have seen in the US are Loltun and Cholula, both are made from the hottest "chile" in the world -Habanero-............the first one Loltun is very very hot while Cholula has more flavor and less kick....enjoy

I'm not loyal to any kind...but I'm good until the back of neck begins to sweat. I can't stand Tabasco---way too much vinegar for the purists. Habanero sauce is very common in Texas..but you have to ask for it at restaurants (don't want to get sued if the kids put it on the fries, right?)
Best food for hot sauce:
A shot or two on a decent omelette enhances (not destroys) the flavor.
Oh, also, on Talipia (that Mexican fish) it's quite good too.

They have really good hot sauce at La Carreta in the terminal at MIA. It's hot as hell! I forget what its called though. If you ever have a connection through there you should stop in. The foods pretty good too.

In Key WEst, there is this GREAT Hot Pepper TASTING Bar, if you can believe it.
They have great stuff at >www.peppersofkeywest.com>
Even have one bottle of sauce costing 139 dollars!! Whoa!
ONe great sauce I had there was "Spank my ass and Call me Sally" I usually can;t stand the stupid named ones as they are not about flavoe as much as they are about heat. But this stuff was both hot and tasty!
