Forty dollars for less than two ounces? Yikes! If the heat doesn’t get ya, the sticker shock will!

Ed Currie, inventor of the Carolina Reaper, has a new one he’s about to release. He says he got excited with the Reaper and got it out there into the public too fast and it became a nightmare getting it into Guiness Book of Records and all the registration hassle. So his new one is still just “pepper X” and going into the system first. Supposedly it makes peppers with a 3.14 Million Scoville unit rating. Eclipses the Reaper pretty bad and makes Scorpion and Ghost look like Amateur hour.

Did y’all know that there is now a Chocolate Reaper? A little less hot than the original but supposed to be quite tasty…

Edit: My REaper plant just wasn’t producing peppers, flowers yes but they’d fall off all the time. Got 7’ tall twice. I abandonded it and started a Red Savina which now has it’s first pepper on it and a zillion flowers and buds. Big Smile

DBCustom My reapers did same thing here in NC. We had a hot spell and the flowers would not bear. The heat you guys endure likely has a major effect. My father in law is from around San Antonio and loves peppers. He bit the end of one of the reapers last year and it went straight to his face. I laughed till I almost lost my breath.

This has good heat, what a bottle of hot sauce should be. Be prepared to hit the toilet seat, better yet… reserve a seat for several hours post ingestion.

Comes in handy sometimes. Big Smile

At the halal cart at work, I’ll get the combo with white sauce and hot sauce. Sometimes I swear the guy wantsa kill me. It’ll be so loaded with hot sauce that it strains me to eat it.

But hey, in by 1, out by 3-4, tops. Yeah, only a coupla hours or so later, I’m parked in the can. Cleans ya right out.

No idea what’s in it, but it hurts so good…

I like the fact i'm not a huge hot sauce snob .

 i like the regular tabasco and some of the cheaper more vinigar based sauces . the up side is since I can;t handle the super insanely hot hot sauces i can use vinigar or cheaper sauces and just a little of ones that are much hotter .

 i have had Docs special, jamacian hellfire , piccapepper .buffalo chipolte , Chohula ,valntines?stimeys ,Tapatio, trappys original ,gringo ,stinger linger....ect  

 When raccoon city first posted realized i had 4 bottles just sitting on my desk in my office .

  We have a local Mexican restaurant who has a killer habenaro sauce to die for . i always grab extra extra to go and have thought more than once about having it bottled and selling it . 

 i love the stuff

Funny thing is, it’s not in “NYC” (as in Manhattan), but the outskirts of Queens. Still NYC, but most people think of skyscrapers and Central Park when they hear “NYC”, and forget about the outer boroughs.

What’s really good is the “green sauce”. Again, no idea what’s in it, but is absolutely amazing in a gyro. Definitely spicy, rather “planty” (parsley?), but goes so well with the lamb and lettuce.

Crap, now I’m getting so hungry, and it’s late.

Ugh. And ironically, I can’t stand the stank from vinegar, and to me Tabasco is just spicy vinegar.

Got this brown vinegar for sprinkling on fries and such, and while the taste is nice, I still can’t stand the stank.

Yeah, got a coupla bottles of Cholupa just sitting here. Could drink ‘em straight out of the bottle. Think I have, actually. Nice taste, but not terribly hot.

Also got some green pfefferstoff that’s good, but a bit on the tangy side. Came from… QDoba, I think. We’d order up, pretty much know we’d kill a whole bottle (or more) amongst all of us, so just walk off with a coupla sealed bottles. I’d “collect” the leftovers, as in burn off the already-opened bottles, and when we stopped going there, still had a few sealed bottles which kinda followed me home. Evil

We got a pretty boring lunch crowd now. Lotsa brown-bagging and same-ol’-same-ol’.

Goes well with some smoked garlic sausage from the grill.

For a vicious bloody caesar (or bloody mary), drop a couple of carolina reapers in a bottle of your favourite vodka and let it rest for a few months. Use as normally in making the Caesar, but do NOT get brave and do a shot of this vodka. Trust me on this one… Ughh Shocked Facepalm

couple of other hot sauces to try that I didn’t see mentioned yet;
-Marie Sharps sauces (the standard habanero one on eggs is amazing)
-El Yucateco Black Label Reserve (nice smoky flavour)

It makes it awesome….

It adds umami to the drink. a caesar is a lot more rich and full flavoured than a mary. Next time you are north of the border try one!

Hmm. I’ve had clams before (go on a yearly clamming trip+dinner, in fact), but never really tried clam juice. Only heard of it before on an ep of “Miami Vice” (w/ Bruce McGill… gawd why do I remember that??) and it didn’t sound very appetising. Sick

I might to try to scare up a bottle/can/whatever of “clamato” and give that a shot, first. Big Smile

As long as it doesn’t add a fish-stank to it, it sounds okay.

My new favorite hot sauce is Valentina Extra Hot Mexican Hot Sauce.

It's hotter and cheaper than Tapatío Hot Sauce, though it pours out more quickly.

I just looked that up, and it does read like it’s a good all-purpose hot sauce, like my personal favorite, Cholula… but maybe hotter? I haven’t had Tapatío recently, so not sure what the flavor profile is.

  Tapatio is pretty average but it seems to have a more earthiness than your basic red vinegar and red pepper hot sauces. Maybe it’s just because mine is pretty old ? Maybe it’s the garlic and ? Un-named spices. 

I ‘ve been on a habanero kick lately and Aldis has a nice habanero and mango salsa that’s very tasty. I also grabbed a couple smaller squirt tubes of simmering spice that was duscounted from 3$ to a buck  one habanero and the other one Carolina ghost pepper sauce .

the habanero one was insanely hot when I put a tiny dab on my tougue. I can’t imagine how hot the ghost pepper sauce is .. need to grab a few more before they disappesr... lots of pop for a buck !

I used to like Valentina but got kind of burnt out on it.Not really much flavor going on  /although I’m talking orinal not the  extra hot . 

 I have to admit I really like Taco Bells hot sauce .. “HOT”   Nice that it’s now easily purchased cheaply at every grocery store on the planet .

Ive bought a few “habanero” items from Aldi and was always dissapointed. When I saw the hab and ghost pastes I kinda looked the other way. Ill have to check them out and see if they have any left.

@Boaz
Whenever I go to Taco Bell (not very often) I grab a handful of the “Diablo” sauce packets. Not exactly an extremely hot sauce, it doesn’t deserve the name, but it’s decent. I like to keep them on hand for when I’m cooking something and want to add a little heat.
