Dave's Scorpion Pepper sauce does not have extract, and it's deliciously hot.

Yeah, I mentioned it above on the prior page as "sauce that will be great to adding to other sauces that are not spicy to give them a nice, solid kick" because of that sole property.

Me have motors that scream to 10,000rpm. Me have more cars than Pick and Pull

Has anyone seen something about like... sort of a bunch of "core" styles of sauce? I'm just doing some thinking... like (very broadly) the Louisiana style ones are similar in concept, a lot of the Caribbean ones follow some basic ideas, Mexican ones likewise... just wondering if there's ever been though into sort of figuring out the fundamental sauce styles or if I'm crazy.

Dave's Ghost Pepper has extract. Mad Dog 357 ghost does not. Try the regular 357 which does and I think you'll dislike it for the same reason as the Daves. FWIW I think Dave's Ghost is the best extract sauce I've had.

After watching Hot Ones I wanted to try a legit hot sauce. Regular 357 is cheap so I buy a bottle. Fuuuuuck that

I’ve been following this thread for a year or so now. I recently bought a bottle of Secret Aardvark after reading so much about it here, and I just wanted to say thanks. Because holy hell is that stuff delicious.

He has only forbidden to you dead animals, blood, the flesh of swine, and that which has been dedicated to other than Allah . But whoever is forced by necessity, neither desiring it nor transgressing its limit, there is no sin upon him. Indeed, Allah is Forgiving and Merciful


I decided to make and sell my own hot sauce, since I love making it. The problem is I never actually used recipes or measurements. That means it's time to workshop!

Pro tip:. 3/2 ratio of habs to green onions just makes spicy onion bullshit. Many habaneros are going to be sacrificed on the altar of my hubris.

I reached out to Heatonist again about the Last Dab they never sent me back in fuckin' October, even though they never got back to me the five other times I tried. They responded, and I got a bottle of the Carolina Reaper variant of the sauce.

Y'all this is a drat tasty sauce. I've had plenty of extreme sauces that just taste like boiled rear end, but there's serious actual flavor in this and while it's not "war crime" hot it's still really, really hot - way hotter than I'd normally use outside of like, a dare, or whatever.

Just got some Exhorresco and Exitium from Burns & Mccoy due to their memorial day sale. The Exhorresco is drat good, but the Exitium is exactly my jam. Would recommend.

After switching to a vegetarian diet, I've found that hot sauces are the thing that I crave and have fallen down the HeatHole™. Hi, thread.

This sounds like a great idea, like how mirepoix varies across different cultures. Goon projects are renown for their thoroughness and 100% completion rates, why not start something?

If you like Dave's Gourmet creamy jalapeno but want something that actually has some heat and flavor, Trader Joe's Jalapeno Sauce is a great upgrade.

Fermentation is the secret, I've found.

I bought the original and the extremely spicy variant of these, famous from the 2x spicy noodles. They are oil based instead of fruit/water/vinegar, so they thin out and cover your food (and your mouth and your stomach) in a completely different way compared to regular hot sauces.

They are good. And hot.

Coworker sent us a six pack of the 2x spicy noodles and they're completely addicting.

the oil also helps it stain your skin an angry red color, the mark of the beast (cartoon chicken). I've tried the red one and it is quite good. the noodles are great too. the 2xspicy one is legit hot, like, most pre packaged foods that describe themselves as "hot" are not. flamin' hot cheetos are not really flamin' hot. but those samyang noodles will actually get a reaction from your body. nose running for 10 minutes.

Chillin' like a villian.

My hot sauce recipe I go hot pepper and garlic straight into vinegar. If I wanted to dip my toes into the lacto-ferment world, would I do garlic and pepper or just pepper in my mash?

Garlic in a mash is bueno. Really anything that won't kill bacteria is fine.

Is there any botulism concern with that? Or does the ph drop fast enough to avoid it?

Shouldn’t be, but you could also get it going with just peppers and drop the garlic in when the mash is already fizzing if you’re worried about it.

(Garlic isn’t any more of a botulism source than anything else that isn’t acid/salty enough to kill botulinum—it was just a common organic/possibly dirty thing to put in olive oil, so it caused problems that got a lot of press.)
