    not tabasco, texas pete, franks, or any of the pg rated stuff.

    blairs ultra death, daves ultimate insanity, what are you using?

    357 magnum sauce is rapidly becoming my all time favorite.

    I use "Drop your drawers". Got it at a hotsauce store in Myrtle Beach SC. A couple drops in a medium size pot of chili gives it a pretty good kick. I usually make the chili and then add a little to my bowl. I like really spicy food but others in my house do not.

    Hyper-hot sauces seem to exist mostly for bragging rights - most don't really have much flavor besides the heat. For table use I have found that Mezzetta's California Habanero Hot Sauce gives a good combination of heat and taste. But, of course, YMMV.

    This. Anything with extreme heat, even if it's tolerable, doesn't add anything to the dish. I come from a state known for it's hot sauces, and we don't use anything overly hot.

    The 'really hot' sauces are like those novelty rubbers in truck stop bathrooms...sure they'll work in a pinch, but they aren't worth a damn.

    Agreed.
    But, I don't have any experience with other truckstop novelties.

    Well, me either...but I'm pretty sure the "Midnight Jiggler" in the machine for 75¢ isn't going to be very effective. :supergrin:

    Gosh, around here they are $1.75. At least that's what this guy that drives a truck told my buddie's uncle's brother's girlfriend.

    Putting hot sauce on good food is the same as putting ketchup on a hot dog. It's just plain nasty.

    Anybody with any class puts Tabasco on their food.
    Amateurs who want to prove how tough they are use hot sauce.

    The purpose is to enhance the flavor of food, not make it hot and painful to eat. Only Tabasco does that.

    And for the uninformed, there is a difference between hot sauce and Tabasco. Just check the ingredients.

    Agreed on all points. However, Tabasco isn't the best we make. Check out Louisiana brand, Louisiana Gold, and Crystal as well.

    Crystal is my favorite on eggs and most soups or stews.

    I use Habanero tabasco on pizza it has a bit more kick than the plain tabasco. I've used mad dogs revenge in chili before and a few drops make it inedible to most people, needless to say I stopped using that after the first time.

    I like Crystal and Louisiana's Finest for their great flavor. For heat I like El Yucateca. It's got great flavor and it's not somebody's $6 a bottle cutesy hobby sauce. $1.99 at Mexican groceries.
    I'm making bread and butter pickles today. Half the batch is going to have chopped habaneros. Love sweet and hot!
