Joe Perry’s Rock Your World Boneyard Brew Hot Sauce Review
Generally when famous people put their name and face to a product the result is little more than humorous. The George Forman grill for example, or Bob Dole hocking Viagra. So when I received a bottle of Joe Perry’s Rock Your World Boneyard Brew Hot Sauce I was prepared for worst–and in for a severe shock. Perry’s sauce is one of the best tasting hot sauces I’ve sampled in recent memory.
The sauce comes in miniature flask with a picture of Perry firing off an epic riff on the guitar. The bottle boasts no grandiose claims of sever pain within, no warnings to use with care. Its actually refreshing that a sauce that average taste buds would find fiery isn’t playing up the fear factor. In fact the only unusual writing on the bottle is a lame message from the Perry family telling you that the company uses only the “natural fresh ingredients,” and that if it’s “not something in our pantry, it’s not in our products.”
Apparently the Perry family keeps red bell peppers, Habenero peppers, Chipolte peppers, vinegar, lime juice, and onions in their pantry. I think I might go live with them. Joe Perry’s Rock Your World Boneyard Brew Hot Sauce smells nice and smoky. But man oh man, the flavor is wonderfully sweet and smoky. Almost a spicy orange flavor, with a hint of smoke, and a lasting molasses kick.
The heat is there, though nothing special, and it goes away almost instantly. When I tell people I review hot sauces I often get the same response: “why do people like sauces that hot? What’s the point of all that heat covering up the flavor entirely.” Well this is the sauce for those people; a sauce with a briefly hot kick that lends incredible flavor to every bite
I tried Joe Perry’s Rock Your World Boneyard Brew Hot Sauce in an orange sauce for chicken and found It lent wonderfully to the overall flavor profile. The tanginess of the sauce came through as well as just a little of the heat. I also tried it straight on scrambled eggs which tasted awesome.
Clearly this is not the sauce to use if your looking for something to add a real kick to your dish, but there are a million sauces out there that do that already. Perry’s is in this game for the flavor and I highly recommend everybody keep a bottle on hand at all times. Actually I don’t really mind if Aerosmith breaks up if it means Joe Perry has more time to spend making sauces.
