    Hot Sauce

    Inspired by the fact that there are 11 bottles of hot sauce (only 2 of which are duplicates, 9 different) in my cabinet+fridge right now, what are your favorite hot sauces and what are your favorite uses for each.

    I'm always up for trying new ones.

    ...but **** it, I love me some hot sauce.

    I am obsessed with hot sauce. There's never fewer than 5 options in my kitchen and often as many as 20. I think each one has it's own good uses.

    That one I posted in the other thread is one I highly recommend: http://www.hotsaucecatalog.com/mount...ero-hot-sauce/

    I love anything with a smokiness. The roasted flavor mellows the habaneros just a little bit so there's a great balance of heat and flavor.

    Sometimes I'll try the extreme stuff (Ghost Pepper/scotch bonnet stuff, Blair's sauces or one called "You Can't Handle This Hot Sauce") for fun, but really I need a good flavor so it doesn't destroy what I'm eating.

    There's one called "Kick Yo ***" (asterisks = donkey) hot sauce that's kinda good.

    Love this one as well: http://www.hotlickssauces.com/index....t_detail&p=533


    And after all the ones I've tried the one I'm really into lately is actually Trader Joe's Jalapeno Hot Sauce. They have a habanero one which is....ok, but it's really just heat and no flavor. The jalapeno one is hotter than most jalapeno based sauces I've had. Couldn't believe it was a jalapeno sauce. Also just has a great flavor and texture.

    I do still keep around some of the generic stuff:
    Tabasco - Mainly for popcorn and egg dishes. Better match for those than anything else.
    Cholula - For guests. I use it in a pinch, but its not hot enough for me. The garlic flavored one is great for frenchfries though.
    Sriracha - Stir fry, Asian dishes. Been using it more often lately
    Franks - Don't even consider it a hot sauce, more tangy, but has some good uses.

    My staples are Sriracha, Smoked Chipotle Tabasco, Cholula, and some **** called Tennessee Sunshine.

    I forget if this is exactly the name, but it's something like Special Aardvark Habanero - it's so freaking good.

    I like Tobasco. I have had 9-10 other random hot sauces in the fridge but I mainly use Tobasco hot sauce. I literally put it on everything.

    I am one that thinks that if it does not make you sweat it is not good. I am strange though. I like dave's ghost pepper sauce. Not the hottest but probably the best flavor in my opinion. I want to try this stuff called Irazu's volcanic sauce sometime.

    I'm going to try both of these I think. I haven't settled on a habanero hot sauce that I've fell in love with and since you highly recommend it I'll give it a go. Flavor comes before heat w/ me in hot sauce, but at the same time I want it to actually be at least somewhat hot, it is hot sauce after all.

    I've also been looking for a Jalepeno hot sauce with any semblance of heat and there is a Trader Joe's around the corner, so I'll give that a go as well.

    My cabinet always looks quite similar

    I have at all times:
    2 srirachas - Rooster and Lee Kum Kee
    Cholula the regular and garlic one
    Franks
    and both regular Tobasco and the jalapeno one

    On top of whatever I want to try out. Never had Louisiana. What style is it and what do you like to use it for?



    To try list:
    Mountain Man Habanero
    Trader Joes Jalapeno
    Smoked Chipotle Tabasco

    i use it mostly on cajun food, like etouffee and gumbo. it's got a nice peppery flavor with mild heat that compliments that flavor profile well (ie, cajun food)
