Not sure you can buy this outside of Oz but loving this at the moment

Not overly potent but smells and tastes great

It's a cold smoked Jalapeno sauce

If you're in OZ, try it

That definitely sounds interesting! I’ve wanted to try making something like that myself, but haven’t gotten into making hot sauces.

I do cold smoke jalapeno peppers, then dehydrate and grind into powder and mix with salt. It’s delicious, with a unique flavor and just a bit of heat. I’ve eaten it on just about everything, including popcorn and potato chips.

I’ve been saving Cholula bottles though; when I get enough, I want to try making a batch of a smoky fire-roasted jalapeno hot sauce.

Not a sauce and really not in to hot myself…but tI ry to incorporate a few of these chips as often as I remember in to my diet to boost metabolism (if this itself isn’t an old wive’s tale):
Often $2 on clearance (date is always good) and makes a tasty base for pickling other items after the chips are gone: https://www.walmart.com/ip/Famous-Dave-s-Devil-s-Spit-Pickle-Chips-24-fl...

(Flagguys.com):..and man o man did they ever refuse to be subjugated. These guys were everywhere. They were important in Washington’s siege of Boston. They stayed behind and were the last to leave after covering the main army’s dangerous nick of time retreat from Long Island. They crossed the Delaware with Washington. They were “..at Brandywine, Germantown, Monmouth, and every major skirmish, and battle all the way to Yorktown..” where they fought “the most important part of the siege” according to General Steuben. These guys saw action in every one of the original 13 colonies.

Because I put hot sauce on so much of my food, my sister bought me...

I’ve always appreciated a savory heat sauce . I’m close to the Smoky mountains, amd in Gatlinburg TN there is a store called Pepper Palace that specializes in hot sauce. My Dad collects full bottles (WTH, Dad?).

My go-to is a proprietary sauce from a restaurant called The Egg and I. Their house sauce can be bought for $7ish dollars. The ingredients are roasted red jalapenos and vinegar. That’s all! It is delicious on everything except Cheerios.

As a similar function, I add Tony Chachere’s Creole seasoning to most foods, too. It is added in proportion to salt and pepper.

Once upon a time, on a day trip to Gatlinburg, my Dad ecouraged me to man-up and try the sauce marked XXX under a glass cover at Pepper Palace. It burned for over 3 hours and burned my then-GF’s lips when I kissed her a couple hours later. Dunno what brand that insane sauce was, but I learned that my Dad enjoys my misery a little lol.

I looked for XXX on the Pepper Palace website, and came up with nothing, so it’s not a brand name. Probably just one of their hottest sauces under a generic “mystery” label. Pepper Palace is where I got my The End hot sauce, that can certainly do what you described and maybe worse, depending how much you stick in your mouth. I mix a couple drops in with a 5oz bottle of Cholula and use that on everything. It’s plenty hot for me that way, and Cholula has a nice pepper flavor which is also enhanced a little by those drops of The End added to it.

Unno, have you ever tried it on Cheerios? Hm?

You don’t know what you’re missing…

I tried the Cayenne hot sauce, and the flavor didn't impress me.

I do like the little bottles.

I'll try a different one next time.

Well, I wasn’t going to say anything. But since you said it first – I’ve found that those gift set hot sauces are usually very watered down in flavor. They literally taste to me like somebody diluted them with plain water. But… it’s the thought that counts, right? Silly

I have tried all five flavors once.

I kinda liked the Garlic, and Jalapeño.

I think the problem is that I don't generally like vinegar-based hot sauce.

Reaper bump!

Was gifted a bottle of this and I’m floored!

I’ve always like a lot of spicy/ethnic foods, but have never been into hot sauces beyond Frank’s, Tabasco variants, and Pickapeppa at home. Feels like I just discovered a whole new frontier. Smile Thumbs Up

Hmm, t’other day I spotted a coupla old bottles of Cholupa over in a corner… now I’m getting itchy to grab ‘em and use ‘em finally.

Should go nicely on eggs, in beans, etc. Got a small pile of real jalapenos when I went shopping at long last, so might mix’n‘match.

My wife needed to use up a bunch of jalapenos due to a Kroger Clicklist order mix-up and pickled them for me yesterday.

Any kind of hot peppers are awesome with eggs.

If you mince them finely and fry ‘em up, it takes out a lot of the raw heat but leaves a nice warm glow. Tasty. not just hot.

Speaking of something that goes good with eggs, anyone like to eat ramps in their scrambled eggs.
Its a short month or so treat here in the mountains. To me the best way to describe it is if a onion and a garlic had a offspring it be a ramp.
Doesn’t have much heat but very tasty when used in spaghetti, eggs, chili and hamburgers.
And once you eat them, everyone who doesnt eat them will pick up on the strong ramp breath for a day or two.

Had to goggle them, but yeah, pretty much exactly as you described, including their pungency. LOL

Whenever I make an onion omelette, it’s not eggs with some onions, but onions with egg as a binder.

I like Louisana hot sauce-but- If you want to burn all the fur off your tongue and the rest of your digestive system; this will accomplish that task.

Oh, also, that’s a good way to “cure” people of swiping other peoples’ lunches in the fridge.

Make your lasagna, tuny-fish samwich, whatever, but put a few drops right smack in the middle somewhere. Kind of a gustatory landmine. Munch, munch, munch, munch, munch, BOOM!!.

^lol Evil

Received some Pirate’s Lantern sauce the other day. It’s an interesting mild mustard-based sauce with peppers, horseradish, and rum included in its ingredients. Ok flavor, I’ll go through the bottle, but ultimately fell short of expectations.

Next, given my newfound enthusiasm for Reaper Squeezins I placed an order through the Puckerbutt website last Saturday. So far the customer experience has disappointed.

The first issue is with their current advertising. The initial promotion slide says:

“20% OFF EVERYTHING!! In addition to any other discount”

Then the next slide says:

“All seeds are Buy 3, Get 1 Free! …Can’t be used with any other promotion.”

Beyond the obvious problem with the contradictory messages, the cart wouldn’t let me just ignore the seed promotion and take the 20% on the order I wanted to place, which included 4 seed packets. Any time I tried to add a 4th, (or more) seed, the 20% was taken off. So I order my sauces with 3 packs of seed and put a note on the order indicating the additional item I wanted.

After placing the order, I sent an email to explain the issue and reason for the order note in more detail. Here is the response I received:

“Use the 20% discount, it’s better.

Ed”

So I don’t know if the reply was really from Ed or from a staffer, but they completely missed or ignored the issues raised and made no attempt to actually correct the situation.

Decided to just let it go and take whatever they send, but now it’s been a full week without a shipping confirmation or any other follow-up regarding the order. Sent a new email yesterday to ask for a status update and am awaiting a reply.

Guess they still have time to make it right, but right now it looks like I’ll be moving on to other vendors in the future.

(*note: can totally accept that things might not ship immediately due to current events, but to not ship an order for 5 full business days without any head’s up seems unusual.)

TL/DR: Pirate’s Lantern sauce and Puckerbutt Pepper Co customer service = meh.

El Yucateco!!

I’ve tried most of their hot sauces. I’ve searched the thread and have only found the black ‘smokey’ sauce mentioned. If you like a real HOT sauce with a balanced flavor I LOVE the ‘regular’ green habenero. IMO, the XXX isn’t noticeably hotter and doesn’t have as balanced a flavor. Smoky black is great on burgers/ beef tacos I’ve found.

Also, not a sauce, but https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B082L1HS58. Get it if you chase heat and flavor on everything Evil
