#1404884 Chinese Red Pepper (Tien Tsin) pod test

Posted by Lucky Dog Hot Sauce on 09 January 2017 - 11:18 AM

I love that pepper.


#1403185 I just heard from Judy/Pepperlover

Posted by Lucky Dog Hot Sauce on 05 January 2017 - 11:11 AM

Glad to hear she's doing well. Some of the best customer service and peppers in the business. Judy went above and beyond for me when I was prototyping Black Label, and her generosity knows no bounds with fresh pods. Hopefully she'll be selling peppers again soon!

What's wrong with fancy graphic designed ads? :dance:


#1399684 Christmas Present Uh-Oh

Posted by Lucky Dog Hot Sauce on 26 December 2016 - 12:14 PM

Yup, got the Goop.

Folks, I washed my hands in everything I could think of but the Cascade. The truth is, I went from one soap to another solvent so fast I would've never been sure which one did the trick till the alchohol was brought up.

What does bother me is how that cap got the way it did. The safety wrap is still tight, does capsaicin develop pressure in a sealed container to blow the top? Never heard of it....


Only if improperly sealed / or improperly filled or processed. In this case it probably banged against something and broke. They're a pretty established brand so I'm betting the latter.

Sucks about the leakage....


We may be posting that for different reasons once he's tried a few of these...
:dance:

A tip from LDHS, get a cheap bottle of gin, keep it in freezer, use to wash cap off hands. Don't know if it works, he swears by it.


It's temporary relief, but it does work. Once the capsaicin has burned the skin, you've basically got a chemical burn, and it's gonna hurt.

But the gin is ice cold and a little bit slippery, and the alcohol will help to remove some of the capsaicin oils (oil = alcohol soluble)

Degreasers like lava soap are also very effective but for the cooling effect, cheap gin is great. Cold cream might also work?

Happy Thanksgiving everyone! 

Black Friday? Small Business Saturday? Cyber Monday? I figured I'd hit them all at once. 

I recently discovered that I have small stash of 5 oz bottles of Purple Label at my warehouse. At first I thought I'd put them on sale for this weekend's shopping craze, but then I decided it would be more fun to give them away for free instead. 

So from Midnight on Thursday 11/24/16 through Monday, 11/28/16 until Midnight, every order received at Lucky Dog Hot Sauce regardless of size will receive a FREE 5 oz bottle of Purple Label! 

Order $30 or more and I'll throw in two FREE 5 oz bottles of Purple Label. Order $60 or more and you'll get 3 FREE 5 oz bottles of Purple Label! 

Ordering a spectacular 11-color Dia del Perro tank top, t-shirt or long-sleeved shirt? You'll get a FREE 5 oz bottle of Purple Label too! 

This award-winning hickory-smoked jalapeño hot sauce won a Golden Chile in 2014 for Mild at Zestfest in Texas. It's the perfect compliment to steak, cheese & crackers, pork chops, grilled chicken, and especially leftover turkey sandwiches! 

So get your orders in this weekend (including Friday & Monday all day!) and get your FREE Purple Label with no additional shipping charges. 

Love & Hot Sauce, and a very happy Thanksgiving to you all.

#1374022 Buzzfeed's "32 Hot sauces You Must Try Before You Die"

The list is underwhelming. But the point is.
 
Lucky Dog getting press. :woohoo:

Susie's and Hank's look interesting...


I've heard good things about Susie's, and I tried one Hanks - it was tasty.

As for the other stuff, someone must've missed what I said about SEO - lising Dave's gets that list to float to the top along with the other Dave's content. If I had to guess, I'd say that's why they were included (plus people probably named it) ;)

Nice mention.

 

Thanks - a lot of good small brand stuff on the list! 

 

So rare - I once asked the Thrillist folks why every list they've done is loaded with multi-million dollar massive brands and they basically said it was about SEO - if they did a list like this one, no one would find it, but when they put Tabasco, Tapatio, Sriracha on the list it gets a ton of clicks and their ads generate revenue. 

 

So small brands never have a chance. Great to see Buzz Feed do this in that light - and even more cool that it is a reader-generated list. They solicited their readers for the recommendations. I'm honored to have been named enough to make it to #2.

Nice! Good job!


Thanks - I only found out about it when it was published. If I'd known they were asking folks for nominees I woulda recruited the hell out of THP! :dance:

#1372118 Lucky Dog Hot Sauce

Posted by Lucky Dog Hot Sauce on 02 October 2016 - 01:24 AM

I just tried Black Label for the first time tonight. I wasn't expecting anything really good because it's made with Trinidad Scorpion peppers. Most sauces that I have had made with super-hots sucked. They were all heat and no flavor.
 
Black Label is delicious! It has a good amount of heat but with real flavors that are not overpowered by the peppers.
 
Thanks LDHS.


Thank you for taking the time to post this great feedback - Black Label was the toughest sauce I've ever worked on. Took more than 3 months and 25 batches to get it right. Feedback like this makes it all worthwhile. :cheers:

Alas, the last batch of T.Scorpions I got were somewhat tame - this batch was about 15% milder than the one before it, so I'm tweaking it a little to get a bit more heat - nothing crazy, but hopefully noticeable. This is my only "seasonal" sauce, so I'm ok with the variation so long as the flavor is on point. Heat's the easy part. ;)
