First, I'm just looking for favorite hot sauces from people who are really into it. Always looking for new ones to try.

Also wondering what level you're at?


This is my favorite of all-time: http://www.hotsaucecatalog.com/mountain-man-habanero-hot-sauce/

I have a high tolerance for spicy food, but I don't always look to max it out on the hot sauces I buy. Look for a combo of heat and flavor. Like I can eat Dave's Insanity or the other outrageous stuff, but I'd preffer a chipotle Cholula over it just for flavor over heat.

I like Franks, it's got good flavor and if I need to add more heat to it then I can. Tabasco's flavor to me is not that great, and Habanero is too hot for me to enjoy it...

HOWE do i do it

yeah tabasco is garbage. my favorites are cholula and tapatio. you can probably throw siracha in there too i suppose.

I've never tried Tapatio, what does the flavor compare to?

Siracha is good, but has a weird....sweet(?) flavor that I don't like. Might be the additives or whatever. I like straight up pepper and vinegar sauces.

I like tabasco, but only on certain things. Eggs, popcorn and mac-n-cheese. that's about it.

Same as Cholula to me.

Cholula without a doubt. I always have a bottle ready.

Franks isn't bad, but it depends on the dish, and what spices were used to cook it. I am not a big hotsauce guy, I think the spice should come from the cooking process.

I like Tabasco. It's pretty vinegar heavy so I'm sure that's why people don't like it. It's not a great hot sauce for doing any major flavoring though. Perfect for runny egg yolks with bread dipped in it. :drool:

I prefer Franks over any though. Cholula isn't that great. Probably came from the chick on the bottle's vag.

Super.

Tabasco. Frank's is really gross and doesn't add the kick I want.

Do you live near a World Market (http://www.worldmarket.com/home/index.jsp)? They have a pretty excellent selection of lesser known hot sauces from around the US and the world. I buy a bunch of my stuff there.

Yeah, they have a pretty good selection. There's a hot sauce store in the L.A. Farmer's Market that is good but over-priced.

This is my favorite store on the planet: http://www.2hotlicks.com/

Another food related MUST-DO when in San Diego. They have a habanero fudge and chili peanut brittle that are amazing.

Kind of off-topic, but for her birthday one year I got my girlfriend bottles of her own personalized hot sauce. There are websites where you can create your own label and whatnot. So I had them include a picture of her hammered at a Red Sox game. It was awesome.

Just something for you hot sauce lovers...

I can handle Habanero and frequently put it on my food. Everything from pasta to omelettes.

Anything hotter just makes food unenjoyable for me.

I really like Frostbite (http://www.hotsauce.com/Frostbite-Hot-Sauce-p/1794.htm). It doesn't have much of a taste to it which I think is a wonderful addition to any collection because sometimes foods are just too good or mild flavored to add other hot sauces too. Of course it isn't the end all hot sauce because you need the flavorful stuff too but it bring a different dimension to the food game. It's also quite hot, but not unbearable.

Eh. Dave's stuff is fun, but it's all heat, little flavor.

I sampled that one a while ago. Don't remember the taste, but maybe I'll try it again.

Just made an awesome sauce.

6 parts BBQ
6 parts mustard
2 parts honey
1 parts cayenne pepper

I think it needs less bbq or more mustard though. I'm trying to replicate the 99's Golden Fever Sauce

Frost Bite is fantastic if you don't want to add any of the hot sauce flavor to what you cooking/eating. I work as a fudge maker on the weekends and we add it to a basic chocolate fudge and spice it up. It works really well. If you really want fudge with a kick, we make one with ghost chilies in it.

The cheap hot sauces like Franks and Texas Pete are always a staple in my fridge. I love Cholula. I am not a fan of Siracha or Tabasco.

I recently tried Dave's Cool Cayenne Hot Sauce. Fantastic sauce with a good mild heat and a great taste. Definitely going to pick up a bottle of it next time I see it.

There's a hot sauce store in SoCal that has habanero fudge......soooo damn good.
