Any Hot Sauce Fans?

Tue Feb 17, 2004 4:15 pm

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.

Agreed on the Red Hot. It blows Tabasco out of the water. AND it's the staple sauce ingredient for "Pearl of Lake Ontario" style chicken wings.

Add me to the list of "Frank's Red Hot" fans. It's especially good to marinate chicken breasts in before tossing 'em on the grill!  Big grin

By the way, another personal favorite (not quite 'hot sauce', but good) is something called Ketchapeno...it's ketchup with jalapenos mixed in! Awesome stuff.

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!

I've tried many different hot sauces, and as far as I'm concerned nothing beats ordinary Tabasco.

Tabasco is dissapointing because it lacks any flavor. It just has "heat", but not much else IMHO.

Is there anywhere I can order Frank's Red Hot online?

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.

I am thankful to live in southern Arizona where Poblano sauce is available. beats the pants off everything else, just don't get the green as it's a yankee sauce, like Tabasco.

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.

When I use hot sauce, I usually load up. Many times I've grabbed some Daves Insanity Sauce only to have another near death experience. Good shit though.  Big thumbs up

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  Smile

Cholula's pretty decent, but Frank's has better flavor, IMHO.

For those of you who are interested, I found this chart of the "Scoville Scale," used to measure the "heat" of various peppers used in hot sauces:

  • 16,000,000 - Pure Capsaicin

  • 5,300,000 - Police-grade pepper spray

  • 2,000,000 - common pepper spray

  • 855,000 - Naga Jolokia

  • 580,000 - Red Savina Habanero

  • 350,000 - Habanero Pepper

  • 325,000 - Scotch Bonnet Pepper

  • 200,000 - Jamaican Hot Pepper

  • 100,000 - Thai Pepper

  • 50,000 - Cayenne Pepper

  • 30,000 - Manzano Pepper

  • 23,000 - Serrano Pepper

  • 10,000 - Chipotle Pepper

  • 8,000 - Jalapeno Pepper

  • 5,000 - Tabasco Sauce

  • 2,500 - Rocotilla Pepper

  • 2,000 - Ancho Pepper

  • 2,000 - Poblano Pepper

  • 1,000 - Coronado Pepper

  • 500 - Pepperoncini Pepper

  • 500 - Pimento

  • 0 -Sweet Bell Pepper


  • I don't know where Frank's Red Hot comes in, but I found a few sauces that claim to be 1,000,000 units on the Scoville scale:

    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:
    Wings (obviously)
    Enchiladas
    Chili

    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.

    Ugh...now this is just insane:



    Supposedly this thing is over 7,000,000 Scoville units.  Wow!

    Got a bottle of this for Christmas:


    It's got quite a kick on it. My head's sweating just thinking about it.

    Another hot sauce that's good for normal everyday use is Sriracha sauce from Thailand.

    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!
