@Tugar sent me some hot sauce in my care package and I tried it tonight on baked shrooms and venison meatballs.  Wow!  That stuff was hit and damn good!  Instant hickups!!
Highly recommended!

    That brand is pretty consistent across the board. Comes in several colors, cuz it's all hot and tasty. Glad you are enjoying it.

    El Yucateca is a ‘go-to’ brand.  They make a lot of sauces, and they are all pretty good.  

    Go to HEB, and get the habanera black label reserve.  It is SOOOOO good:

    I concur on the Black Label Reserve El Yucateco.  Good, and has a nice smoky note, which I like.

    One hot sauce I don't recommend:  Cholula Chipotle.  They advertise it as less than mild (that's true) and having a "smoky essence."  Bull.  Its ingredients are, in order from the list on the bottle:  "Water, Vinegar, Sugar, Peppers...."  It smells smoky, but if you want to get a smoky taste, you'll give yourself diabetes.  That stuff is more sweet than anything.

    I "borrow" the El Yucateco red and green habanero when we go to the local Mexican restaurant!

    Below is a list of the "heat" level. Interesting. Also a sampler pack but usually you can find them around town.

    Used to do equal parts hot sauce and vodka. Afterburners. Can't do that too much anymore.

    Just got the four pack from Amazon. Not sure how they can sell it for $14 shipped second day! 

    I'm afraid to open the black label bottle.

    @JKP It's no hotter than the others. Just smokier.

    No, this is a different animal. Lots of Xs on the label and what not!

    Range report on the black label stuff above - oh my!!!

    Tried a bit on some fried eggs. It's HOT but flavorful. A bit hotter than I normally like but good stuff. Nice even sweat across the top of my head after getting a bit too much in a bite. 

    I need to open one of the other bottles and eat some of that to cool my mouth down.

    Being a bit of a hot sauce freak, I ordered a multipack of some stuff my store does not carry. 

    Opened the Caribbean. That is tasty, with a good up front kick of heat without much linger or ‘after burn’. 

    Can’t wait to try the chipotle

    That is one of the few things I do miss about Miami. Plenty of good hot sauces for all over the Caribbean.

    Dang! That looks good. I've been craving some good datil pepper sauce. Might need to try some available on Amazon. 
  • bullsi1911bullsi1911 Moderator Posts: 11,461 Senior Member
    Just added that to the Amazon cart

    My wife found if funny that I sent hot sauce to a Texan. But it turned out to be an education for many of us. 

    The only tabasco I keep around is the green one. The others are truly crap..

    Tabasco is red vinegar.

    Except the “Scorpion Pepper” Tabasco sauce.  It has some serious heat and an OK flavor

    From El Yucateco's FAQ:

    Are your sauces vinegar based?

    No. We want the flavor of the pepper to shine through, so we use minimal amounts of citric and acetic acid as a preservative.

    Anybody know what's kind of odd about that response?

    Not a tough choice at all. You put a different dab on each bite.
