I personally have a strong dislike for vinegar-based hot sauces. Especially on wings. Nowadays you can even get Texas Pete's without vinegar :-)


When I make hot sauce or salsa, I preserve with citric acid - either lemon or lime juice or both.

Limes are more acidic than lemons IIRC but lower in vitamin C than lemons. Sofar i strongly prefer fresh lime juice added to most hot sauce (after cooking) than using lemon juice.
