What's the best hot sauce?

Postby Colonel Panic on Sun May 25, 2008 3:46 pm

I know many of you here love to cook and at least a few of you are connoisseurs of the spicy, so I was wondering: what do you think is the best commercial hot sauce?

All the poll options are popular brands available in the USA but if you have a favorite that isn't listed here, please mention it.

Yucateca is good, but there's another one I'm a big fan of that comes in 2 intensities. I'm trying to think of the name...

I'm a big fan of Cholula for straight up hot sauce.
If I want something with a thicker consistency to substitute ketchup, I'll go with the rooster.

I'm not a huge fan of Tabasco, but their garlic flavor is good.

Taste-wise, I'd go with Frank's extra hot.

I am a situation specific hot sauce guy-
Texas Pete for fried chicken (both hot and cold) and pork chops.

Pho gets Sriracha.

Raw oysters get both classic tabasco and horseradish.

I like the green tabasco on thai food and fried fish.

I make my own vinegar sauce for collards, turnip greens, cabbage and mustard greens. It's also good on fried fish.

BBQ is a whole other world of sauces.

I have been all about the Chipotle Tabassco as of late. I also like the green. I am about flavor, not heat.

I have at least 40 different ideas on how to use the hot olive oil.

Oh, people!

You HAVE to try this sauce! There is nothing like it.

It favors flavor over heat but still has quite a kick.

Melinda's Garlic Hot Sauce

Sadly, it's not always available in stores.

---

A friend of mine used to call the hottest gimmick hot sauces "stockbroker sauces" because it was all about the flash but didn't actually taste very good.

Sriracha is primal hot sauce. The ur-sauce. With a bit of ingenuity and tolerance for slight chunkiness most other red pepper hot sauces can be made with sriracha as the primary ingredient. Vinegar-based liquid sauces are a staple, but I can live without any of them. I can't live without sriracha.

Otherwise, find out where the Portuguese people live in your town, go to their neighbourhood, and pick up some piri piri. If you make nice to kindly old immigrants they'll probably give or sell you a jar of their homemade stuff, but even the piri piri that comes in a bottle in the store is enough to make you set the tabasco aside like it was the Estado Novo and have a Carnation Revolution right there in your fucking spice cabinet.

West Africans make piri piri too. I have no idea if it's the same, as I love West Africans but hate their food.

I don't doubt it's probably awesome, it's just something I never would have imagined.

It's pretty crappy olive oil with some (usually) funny-tasting heat to it. Meh.

Sriracha. I put it on almost everything I eat.

If for some reason I don't have Sriracha, I will use Tapatio.

Mega Death Sauce

Painfully hot. Actually too hot for any culinary use whatsoever.

Good for watching your friends cry in pain. Water just makes it worse.
