    Try a ghost pepper. (Naga morich, or bhut jakolia)

    I bought some ghost pepper seeds to grow this spring but no way in hell I'll eat them, more intriguing to me.

    I am a wimp, lol:rofl:

    Tabasco is just red food coloring compared to most of the hot sauces out there

    This

    I use it once in a while, usually in a recipe that calls for it but there are SO MANY better choices for most things.

    If it doesn't do this, its not working. As in, defective.

    But I don't think quality control is a problem with tabasco. No bottle has ever failed to work as advertised.

    I like it for what it is, but moreso for indirect heat. By this I mean mixing it into a recipe, soup, spaghetti, pork and beans, rice and beans, etc, as opposed to just putting it straight on something I'm gonna bite right into. At times I'm in the mood for it, but it can be tastebud injuring-hot and that can be too much.

    I stock Dave's Insanity, but can only use that as indirect heat. You could probably suffer a medical injury using it directly. So hot that one drop can set fire to a pot of spaghetti sauce.

    A second drop can ruin it. at most a third drop. As in, trash it, inedible. And certainly no fun at all. I like hot food, make it perky, zippy, interesting…but self torture is just ridiculous.

    Speaking of hot sauce,

    Their new ad campaign is a scream.

    I put that **** on everything!

    Tabasco is a staple at my house. I like the Chipotle variety. It only tastes hot compared to Texas Pete, but adds a mild splash of pepper to a lot of recipes and dishes. If you do a straight shot it will clear out a stuffy head.

    I absolutely cannot stand to eat biscuits and gravy without a liberal dose of Franks Red Hot. Same reason. I simply love the flavor of biscuits and gravy and Franks. Its for the heat, obviously, but its also about the taste.

    I enjoy both, but Chalula's is vastly superior.

    Sriracha sauce, AKA rooster sauce, is also awesome, but much hotter than Tabasco.

    I put Tabasco on almost everything. Like the regular, and the green pepper sauce especially. I also like Sirachi (sp) sauce which is a chinese hot sauce in a squeeze bottle that I think is just as or even more potent.

    its Thai, but since they put labels in five different languages on the bottle many people think its Chinese, Vietnamese, Japanese:dunno:, etc

    But it's made by "Huy Fong!" Say it isn't so! :tongueout:

    Really, I don't care. Made some beef jerky last week with srarachi sauce as the flavoring (along with teriyaki) and finally found the heat I was looking for.
