Here are my Favorites that I find myself using all the time.

1- El Yucateco Red 5000 - 6000 S.U.



Great as a condiment or to heat up Chilis and Sauces.

2- El Yucateco Kutbil-Ik 11,000 - 12,000 S.U.



Adds heat to anything. Holy shit hot and readily available in the supermarket.

3- Huy Fong Sriracha 2,000 - 3,000 S.U.



Great for all around use as an addition to wing sauce or as a dip on the side.


And of course Franks Red Hot for wings and Tabasco for Pizza and Eggs.

Which are your favorites?

I like the Asian rooster stuff but, my all around favorite is Tennessee Sunshine. Not necessarily the hottest but very flavorful. Also have the usual Tabasco / Frank's / Pete's for general usage.

Down here Southerners eat a sauce from Louisiana called "Crystal." It's one of the best tasting sauces because it's not just loaded down with vinegar like some other sauces. My mouth is actually starting to water for some fried catfish with Crystal sauce from thinking about it. But unfortunately I live in North Arkansas and these folks are some useless fucks when it comes to food. They don't have any Southern food.



If the place doesn't have that then you will see people eating Louisiana Hot Sauce



But it has a little more vinegar. If you ABSOLUTELY love the taste of white vinegar then just buy that runny dogshit Tabasco.

I use Frank's for almost everything, but I also always have a bottle of the Sriracha too.

I love this stuff for everyday type use, I also like Tabasco Habenero for a everyday use with more kick.

For some nice heat with no added flavor...



For crazy HEAT, I go with...

This stuff is pretty good. Very popular with the insurgents around here. My friend used to carry it to school in his pocket just to s[ice up school food

I don't get these gimmick "Flaming Sphincter" sauces. Once you get past a certain heat... and all of the atomic gimmick sauces are way past that point... all you get is pain. Pain is not a flavor... so one bottle is pretty much like all the others... brand isn't important if they're all just pure pain. If you don't care about flavor, then what's the point of it? Why not just pour lighter fluid on your tongue and set it on fire?

I hate the over the top hot shit to be honest. Maybe I am a fag, but I like to enjoy my food.

I am strictly Franks and Tabasco..I also have the Tabasco (habnero) which I use when I make chilli.

Usually people use something that hot as an additive to food, not directly on food to be consumed. The flavor is provided by the rest of the dish. I never buy anything hotter than the stuff I listed above. 10,000 Scovilles seems to be about the threshold of pain for me. That bomb sauce above is 10 times that.

I'm going to have to check this out. I like the bourbon so a hot sauce based on it has to rock.

There's nothing I hate more than shitty gimmick sauces. I went to some famous Tex Mex joint in Washington DC once... can't remember the name... so I order up some Mexican grub... chimichangas or something. So the food comes out and I grab a bottle of the restaurant's "signature sauce"... all sorts of warnings on the label about how hot it's supposed to be, a picture of a bull's skull, a cutsey sombrero cap on the bottle, a bunch of copy on the label about how "world famous" and "authentic" the sauce is... Their website is listed in case you want to order a case of the wonderful stuff.

I try it... and it's nothing but shit.

Seriously... it was pepper seeds suspended in oil and vinegar. It was fucking disgusting... it was hot in acidic way, not spicy. It was like oily pencil shavings with a splash of aftershave.

I thought I might have gotten a bottle that had been sitting around open for awhile and gone bad. So I grab an unopened bottle off of another table... same shit.

That'll go to show you what a bunch of ham and egger rubes your average American is when it comes to hot sauce. The fact that this place was still in business serving that shit as their signature sauce is a fucking crime.

What's on the bottle is far more important than what's inside...

"Loco Paco's Flaming Anus Mental Institution Sauce!"... and the bottle is wearing a little straight jacket?! This stuff MUST be fabulous!

Yech. :icon_roll

Exactly.

"Daves" or "Da Bomb" is basically adding pure heat to, say a pot of chili, without adding any additional "flavor" to confuse things. I've found that if you use A LOT of Dave's in something, you do start getting a flavor that isn't very good, so I more or less stick to Da Bomb now and only use Dave's if I'm out.

I saw a guy use that Dave's Insanity stuff once... he stuck a toothpick in the bottle, and added four drops to five gallons of chili... so basically... even if you make a a five gallon pot of chili every week... one bottle is a lifetime supply.

You just know that the vast majority of those flaming gimmick sauces are bought as novelties, somebody chuckles at the zany label, and then they sit on shelves unused and forgotten until somebody cleans house and throws them out... or else frat boys use the sauce to torture the naughty bits of their pledges during homoerotic hazing rituals.

Well if I'm wanting to cook chili then I just cook it like a real man and cut up fresh peppers and cooke them down into the meat.

The best hot sauce for average eating for spicy food then Crystal Hotsauce works just fine.
