Decided to try a Yellow Bird sampler based on the recommendations last week.



Blue Agave Sriracha doesn't taste much like ol' rooster sauce sriracha. Much sweeter than I expected. Not sure if I like that. Might be good on something thai-adjacent though.

Okay, I found something I like the blue agave sriracha on but y'all are gonna laugh. It's really good on peanut butter and pickle sandwiches.

I only have excellent ideas.

I bought the Bravado Crimson Special Reserve. It's alright, but there's a lot of vinegar so it is very watery and with the large opening you could easily add a fourth of the bottle to something by accident. It does not feel as good value as something like Hellfire First Blood. If it came in a dropper bottle like Tabasco it would make for a good replacement.

I have this too and it really does slop out. I've heard so many glowing things about Bravado but I felt a little underwhelmed by this. It's fine, I had it on some tacos and it was nice, but not really much to write home about? I'm willing to believe I just didn't buy their best sauce, and I mean, I do like it. I'll probably quite happily use up the rest of the bottle, I just don't know if I'll order another. Very very solid, just not a showstopper.

The bravado sauces people go nuts for are the ones they do that are heavy on other flavors, like the miso or black garlic one. That one looks to just be a vinegar hot sauce. Iím sure itís good for what it is but itís not really what people are talking about when theyíre talking about bravadoís sauces.

Yeah, maybe I'll try the black garlic one next. I have way too many 30% full bottles of this and that taking up space so I'm trying to slow down on blind buying stuff for a little while.

I do that with Bravado Blueberry Ghost Pepper but I never thought to try the Yellowbird. Good idea! I haven't found much I like it on but that sounds delicious.

Got a heatonist order with a bunch of thread recommendations yesterday:




The Fiya Fiya and the szechuan ghost pepper are real standouts, hotter than the others and delicious. The citrusy notes, especially, really make the szechuan sauce awesome. The black garlic is tasty with eggs and polenta, and the the mushroom habanero went really well a frittata I made yesterday.

The Detroit bourbon habanero is also quite nice, again with frittata. Thumbs up all around.

Heatonist is the best. I was on their monthly list for forever until I just eventually couldn't keep up and had to pause the subscription.

Ever just finish eating but you still want more of the hot sauce you were having so you just keep dabbing a little bit on the back your hand and slurping it off?

I pour it into a spoon but yes, all the time. I had to stop drinking the black garlic Bravado because it got too expensive.

Yes but you're also the guy who drank mercury so I'm gonna need some further input.

1 part worcestershire sauce 1 part crystal hot sauce, shot glass, knock it back.

and yeah, i wish that black garlic stuff was a little less pricey. tastier than mercury and won't give you nerve damage.

My groupís favored bar in college did pickle juice+vodka shots and bartenders would add a good glug of Tabasco if you asked. That little bit of heat really made the shot.

Okay maybe I am the woman that drank mercury. And maybe it damaged my sense of taste. But if drinking hot sauce was as bad for me as drinking mercury I'd still really want to do it every single night. I cannot say the same for the liquid metal.

I do this all the time. I have a bottle of sippin' worcestershire. It's also really nice in a raw egg.

Okay fine maybe people shouldn't trust me.
