Mad Dog Ultra Hot BBQ Sauce Review

Mad Dog’s Ultra Hot BBQ Sauce – A beautiful meaty taste with an undercurrent of heat starts this sauce off on the right foot. Those are the two characteristics that stand out with Mad Dog’s Ultra Hot BBQ Sauce. Open the bottle and pour it over a thick, juicy steak, paint it on a couple of chicken breasts, or slather it on a kabob. This is good stuff and exactly what a barbecue sauce is supposed to be.

Tomato paste, vinegar, molasses, tamari, salt, garlic, liquid hickory smoke, and Bird’s Eye hot peppers come together in a party of tastes that bring out the remarkable barbecue character you’d expect. Continue Reading

Key Lime provides the foundation for this Key West BBQ Sauce. Other ingredients include brown sugar, soy sauce, Tequila, Worcestershire sauce, vinegar, molasses, corn syrup, anchovies, tamarind, New Mex chilies, garlic, onion, mesquite flavor, and a set of secret spices. The ingredients are blended subtly to produce a smooth sauce with a lot of personality. The tequila and lime are happy neighbors that get along well with the mesquite flavor well. The chilies add such a quite heat that it’s almost unnoticeable while providing a nice complement to the other flavors going on. Overall, there is a sweetness followed by a tart aftertaste, thanks primarily to the lime.

Review of Blair’s Mega Death Sauce

Blair’s Mega Death has a stunning rich red color and is loaded with pepper seeds and bits of pepper skin. If you don’t shake it well, you can actually see the very dark red liquid the makers of the sauce call liquid rage.

If you don’t shake this sauce well and happen to get a hit of that liquid rage, I feel sorry for you. I’m not sure what makes the liquid rage part of Blair’s Mega Death Sauce, but it is killer hot. I made the mistake of tasting straight from the bottle without shaking. That’s an amateur mistake to begin with, and in this case, I paid for it dearly.

Let’s talk about the other factors of Blair’s Mega Death Sauce, shall we? It smells delicious. There’s an intense smoky aroma that made my mouth water for a taste. Continue Reading

Pain is Good Jamaican Style Hot Sauce Review

Pain is Good Jamaican Style Hot Sauce has nice heat factor and a great Jamaican taste going on here. Lemon, lime juice, and pineapple juices, habaneros peppers, salt, garlic puree, onions, tomato paste, and Jamaican jerk seasoning bring this sauce to life. There’s an extremely pleasant aroma when you open the bottle, a respectable heat level, a sweet undercurrent, and a beautiful colored sauce loaded with habanero pepper seeds.

Let me start with the heat level and flavor combination. The heat spreads rather quickly and evenly. It burns. There’s no doubt about it. This is where pain and pleasure come together. There’s an underlying Jamaican tropical type sweetness that gives this sauce high marks in my book. Continue Reading

Fork ‘N Halo BBQ Sauces are among the very best barbecue sauces you can find. The Fork ‘N Halo Fire and Brimstone is over-the-top good; Fork ‘N Halo Heavenly Hickory is just that heavenly. This Fork ‘Halo Original Sin BBQ Sauce doesn’t disappoint.

Widow No Survivors Hot Sauce Review

Widow Hot Sauce comes with a plastic Black Widow spider attached to the neck of the bottle, warning you of the danger inside the bottle. The tag line at the bottom of the bottle is No survivors. I’m inclined to believe that little warning after having taken a drop of this sauce on the tip of my finger.

Widow No Survivors Hot Sauce is a hot hot sauce. That’s the only way to describe it. I felt the heat searing my mouth immediately, followed by a rush of heat that lit my stomach on fire. If that wasn’t enough, I found myself wiping sweat from my brow.

Then I went back for a larger dose of the widow’s venom. Why in the world would I ask for the punishment? Continue Reading

Hillbilly Home Brew BBQ Sauce Review

Hillbilly Home Brew BBQ Sauce label proclaims this to be from Paw’s private stash. I’m here to tell you, this is some good stuff. it’s beyond good, quite frankly. It takes me back to Pappy’s Moonshine Madness, which is one of the best sauces I’ve tasted, period, barbecue or otherwise. This Hillbilly Home Brew BBQ Sauce is right on par with Moonshine Madness. In fact, I’d say Pappy and Paw have been cookin’ it up together, probably sippin’ away at the booze they use to flavor their barbecue sauces with while they’re at it.

Here’s the deal, folks. I don’t know what hillbillies know about barbecue sauce that a lot of other sauce makers don’t, but whatever it is, the sauces come out at the top of the heap. It’s no wonder granny’s always got a smile on her face. Continue Reading

Hottest Hot Pepper Sauce Review

With a name like Hottest Hot Sauce, you expect this sauce to be either very bad or very good. It’s a simple name, nothing fancy at all.  Is this the hottest hot sauce? Not by a long shot. Is this sauce hot? Oh yeah, it’s hot, hot enough to make my eyes water.

The simple name is all that’s necessary. Hottest Hot Sauce doesn’t rely on a fancy name to stake its claim in the world of hot sauces. The bottle design, featuring flaming skulls, is pretty awesome, though. What it does rely on is taste. There’s a beautiful fire-roasted flavor going on with this sauce that balances well with the blistering heat attack. Continue Reading

Tapatio Hot Sauce Review

I have always enjoyed the flavor of Tapatio Hot Sauce. It isn’t always on my shelf, and it isn’t one of those sauces I crave, but when I do have it on hand, I use it frequently. It’s made from water, red peppers, assorted spices, salt, garlic, and not a whole lot more. It’s one of those peppery tasting pepper sauces, which is what makes it so appealing. It’s warm enough to add a kick to your food, but it’s mild enough you could introduce someone to the wonderful world of hot sauce with it.

I use Tapatio Hot Sauce heavily with Mexican foods. That’s where it shines, probably not so surprisingly. The flavor is distinctly Mexican. It’s an excellent taco sauce, great on burritos and nachos, and the perfect complement to a guacamole dip. Continue Reading

Mad Cat Hot Sauce Review

When I first opened Mad Cat Hot Sauce it reminded me of hot Italian dressing. The red wine vinegar dominated the smell and the taste. It left the heat of the habaneros and flavors of cilantro, garlic and salt to dance in the background. The red wine vinegar was so dominant that it overpowered the lime juice, and the flavor of onion was also no where to be found.

The Mad Cat Hot Sauce dwelled in my refrigerator, but I decided to give it a second chance. The vinegar had mellowed out, which allowed the spices and the habaneros to ride in the driver’s seat. The lime juice and onion could now be tasted too. Continue Reading
