    I am a big time chile-head and love me some good hot sauce. I have my favorites and want to hear about some sauces that others have tried and liked. There are just too many for me to work my way through!! Of course anything considerd hot or spciy can be included.

    Some of my favorites are:

    Blairs Death sauce
    Blairs HEAT line of sauces, The Chipotle SLAM is awesome
    Lizard eyes Jalapeno stuffed olives
    Pain is good Jamaican style
    Goya Habanero sauce

    Are you just looking for max heat or flavor and such too? For flavor I cook with Crystal hot sauce almost exclusively, Tabasco green pepper sauce sometimes, and Sriracha sometimes.

    A good balance of heat and flavor. I want to taste the pepper as well as feel the heat. Sauces like the tabasco are good for cooking as they get blended into whatever they are in. I like using the thick stuff as a condiment instead of ketchup or BBQ.

    Oh, gotcha. I was just thinking about cooking sauces. That's all I know a thing or two about. I like to use the Habanero Hot BBQ sauce from Sticky Fingers back home (South Carolina) for use on the plate. You can get it online too.

    Everyday eating/seasoning, Chalula is my #1. It's the one that comes with the little round wood top. Put a coupla dabs on tortilla chips, use beer to wash it down....YUMMMMMM.

    Discovered the Pain is Good line while I was in AZ on business. Bought the Jamaican, Louisiana, and Garlic styles. All are good, but my fav is the Jamaican. My wife eats the Garlic on crackers. The Lousiana is better to use in recipes.


    Only Tabasco I like is the jalapeno, the rest doesn't have much a flavor to me.

    Dave's Insanity is good!

    I grow habeneros every year and dry them. I add them to pickles and this year I tried making some oil. The dried habs and extra virgin olive oil in a decanter. Yikes! That stuff is good for sauteing!

    If anyone would like some dried habs, p.m. me. I have more than I need.

    hey don, grind up your habaneros in a blender or food processor ala cayenne pepper. quite a bit more kick and has the wonderful and distinctive habanero flavor. its great sprinkled on fried potatoes, soup or whatever you like........groundhawg

    Wal-Mart Supercenters sells two of the best Habanero-based sauces made:

    Marie Sharps (Belize). Sharps is the real "Melindas". The poeple who now make Melindas are phony impersonators who ripped off the Sharp's trademark...and their sauce is lousy and weak. I like the XX hot. Habaneros, carrots, onions, garlic, lime juice.

    and...

    El Yucateco Salsa Populare de Chile Habanero (Mexico). This Yucatan sauce comes in both green and red.

    Frank's for most everything...it's cheap and doesn't overpower whatever you put it on.

    Also, the Srirchi (Rooster) sauce is awesome but is stronger and tends to overpower what you put it on.....but it's a great sauce.

    I love Franks but use Crystal more often because it tasts the same and has literally half the sodium. (Frank's is off the charts.)

    I also like the Srirachi stuff, but damn is that hot! I can handle habenaro sauces better than that! I must not be used to that kind of pepper.

    Rooster sauce is a great "ketchup" on fries, hotdogs, burgers, steak and the like ;f

    Dave's Insanity mixed in with my barbacue when I crave heat! A tablespoon or two to about a cup of meat is PERFECT!!!! :)

    Sambal Oelek some days.

    There are a few more I use but none stand out like the others :)

    One thing I do not like in my hot sauce is vinegar. I cannot stand vinegar when I want heat! Thus, my dislike of so many commerically prepared sauces.

    I also grow chili pequenos and crush them to make my own hot sauce using ketchup as a base sometimes ;)

    Years ago, I got some tiny peppers called "thai hot" from one of our commerical suppliers but I cannot remember which. They were little pods, normal banana shape, but only got about three-fourths of an inch long at max. Incredible heat, great flavor. Anybody know what these were? The thai hot and hot thai I am finding now are like banana pepper size fruit and are definately NOT what these were...
