Not bad...  ha ha

 

Dude you educated me with that one. I always thought "Old Sparky" was unique to SC. Apparently a popular nickname in the capital punishment arena of other states as well....  I tend to think of the Metallica album cover "Ride the lightening."    :cheers:

I've been enjoying Nandos peri peri sauce lately. Love the lemony flavor. goes great on lots of things. 

 

Moores Harrisa hot sauce is a nice replacement for louisiana style sauces. Was great on some lolipop chicken legs over cherry wood.

Tabasco is pretty much only useful on top of pizza for me, there is not much else i would use on that much.

I find it better to cook with, adding to gumbo or sausage gravy etc.

I have a tabasco cookbook and if you actually substitute the tabasco with any other sauce, it's a really great book. Lol

Alright, for basic sauces:

Tabasco (original) is just peppery vinegar. It's nothing special, at all.
Texas Pete, Frank's Red Hot, Crystal, Louisiana Hot Sauce--these were good to me when I was a kid. There is a time and a place for these types of sauces.
HOWEVER--two sauces with similar tastes both do it better. Valentina, and Tapatio.

Now, getting into specialty sauces, and hot-head sauces:
Chipotle Tabasco is delicious. Great on pizza and sandwiches and whatnot. It's mainstream, but it's not your basic pepper/vinegar sauce, because of the smokiness.
El Yucateco makes a lot of great sauces. Their chipotle sauce and their basic red sauce aren't as good as the rest of the catalog, but if there is any kind of El Yucateco on the table, I'll use it. Caribbean, Kutbil-ik de (XXXtra hot), Green, Black, Red, in that order of favorites. Chipotle is shit for their brand.

Melinda's XXXtra hot is fantastic.

I'm not one to splurge on hot sauces, or purchase unknown brands, because half the time it's like $8 a bottle for something I could smash in a week, but some stuff I've had before but never bought again that I really liked:

Pain is Good Jamaican Style
Marie Sharp's Smokin' Marie's Smoked Habanero Sauce

LASTLY, a local brand. Has anyone had Blaze hot sauce? https://www.blazegourmet.com

Their Jerk Jaimaican Sauce was soooo good. Stuff's like $10 a bottle, and my girlfriend got it for me for Christmas, and two bottles were emptied by February.

I guess that's why I've resorted to trying to make my own. I just consume so much of the stuff, I have to constantly re-up. Might as well make a huge batch, and make it how I want.

The first batch - mixed reviews,  but sold well on tasting. Not settled quite yet on heat, I think I will amp it up a notch or two.Taste on point - but I want a higher burn.

 

PM me and in a couple of weeks  I will send you a bottle of batch 2.0 and you can judge firsthand.   No strings

 If you can get past the 410mg of sodium in a tsp. Seriously, nearly 20% of your DV in a single tsp.

I hadn't realized. I got it once as a gift, and I devoured the bottle within a week. Recommend any healthier alternatives with a similar taste and level of heat?
