Wanza’s Wicked Temptation Hot Sauce Review

Wanza’s Wicked Temptation Hot Sauce – There is one purpose and one purpose only for this sauce – to burn the hell into your mouth. This is dangerously hot sauce with a surprisingly good flavor. The reason the flavor is surprising is that the heat level here is so intense that I couldn’t imagine I would taste any flavor. I almost didn’t, but the flavor is there, sort of rich and smoky, lying beneath a fiery attack that is hard to recover from.

Wanza’s Wicked Temptation isn’t a sauce for dipping chips in or eating straight from the bottle. I did both, and believe me when I say, I felt the agony. Oil of capsaicin is used freely in this sauce, along with Red Savina Habanero, which, for those who know their peppers, know to be one of the hottest peppers in the world, second probably only to the ghost pepper.

Mary’s Cherry Rub Review

Mary’s Cherry Rub – I was excited to try this rub. The first thing I did was rub it into some t-bone steaks and throw the steaks in the broiler. I didn’t add any other flavorings because I wanted to taste how this cherry rub worked on its own. The ingredients include sugar, brown sugar, dehydrated onion, garlic, ancho peppers, smoke flavoring, and cherry flavoring. The tempting aroma that wafted from the oven as the steak sizzled away with this stuff on it made my stomach growl in anticipation.

I wasn’t as pleased with the taste Mary’s Cherry Rub on the t-bone as I thought I would be. To be fair, though, my mother-in-law loved it and so did my wife. Continue Reading

Ass Reaper Pepper Sauce Review

Ass Reaper hot sauce – The bottle design alone is worth the price of admission on this sauce. Ass Reaper hot sauce comes with a black label that features a skeleton. There’s an actual black cloak tied around the bottle and the lid has a plastic skeleton head over it. The tag line for the sauce is “That’s your ass now.” If you choose to use this sauce irresponsibly, it will be your ass.

Habanero peppers, scotch bonnet peppers, and capsaicin resin and oil (in this case from a hot African pepper) make up the foundation of this sauce. The combination of habaneros and scotch bonnets would be enough to warrant warning. The other stuff is simply overkill.  Continue Reading

Sriracha Hot Chili Sauce – Rooster Sauce Review

The rise of Huy Fong’s famed Sriracha hot chili sauce is the stuff of legend among devout foodies.

In Thailand a sauce known as “Sri Racha” has long been a ubiquitous condiment, gracing tables all across the nation. In 1980, David Tran immigrated to California and began producing an authentic version of this sauce for Asian and American consumption. Unfortunately, while the sauce fared well among Asians, it flopped with most Americans. So he tweaked the recipe and came up with the famed Sriracha chili sauce, which is sweeter, and thicker then its Thai ancestor. The sauce took off, and today it can be found everywhere from the shelves of Asian grocery stores, to American supermarkets, and lucky for me, in my refrigerator. Continue Reading

Peppers Zesty Blue Crab Salsa Review

Peppers Zesty Blue Crab Salsa – This is truly one of the most individual salsa I’ve tried in a long time. When I first saw it, I had my reservations. Combining crab meat in salsa was something I’d never seen done before. Not saying it hasn’t been done — just that it was a little different than anything I’d ever seen. One taste was all it took to hook me, though I would venture to say this salsa won’t be for everybody. It definitely falls into the acquired taste category.

Check out these ingredients. First, the blue crab. I really expected no more than a hint of crab meat. Crab is expensive and blue crab is one of the more expensive varieties. Continue Reading

Irish Scream BBQ Sauce Review

Irish Scream BBQ Sauce – I love the barbecue wars. I really do. Every time you turn around, there’s a new sauce that claims to be the winner of several awards. Sometimes the claims are accurate and the titles are well deserved. Sometimes they aren’t. At any rate, these barbecue wars result in some extremely delicious sauces.

Irish Scream BBQ Sauce is one of those sauces. Okay, so I’m Irish. I was probably going to love this sauce from the word go. I say probably, because if it had been one of those boring sauces that claim to be something special, I would have tossed it out on its butt. Continue Reading

Hooters Hot Sauce Review

Hooters Hot Sauce starts with a deep red color and a little layer of chili oils floating on top. Shake it up good and open the bottle, then take a sniff. It has a mouth-watering aroma that tells you you’re in for something special.

Knock-you-on-your-butt heat is not the point of this Hooters Hot Sauce. This is a table sauce meant to highlight the flavor of the peppers and not the heat potential. Very simple ingredients – red peppers, vinegar, salt, and brown sugar – take you back to the basics of hot sauce, but with an added taste characteristic that many basic hot sauces lack.

You can use Hooters Hot Sauce liberally, right out of the bottle, to kick up soups and stews, fried fish, cheese dips, and just about anything else Continue Reading

Gringo Jacks Whiskey BBQ Sauce Review

Gringo Jack’s Smokin’ Whiskey BBQ Sauce is truly a masterful combination of ingredients. There’s tomato puree, cider vinegar, brown sugar, onions, tomato paste, chilies, and lime juice all set to a splash of bourbon whiskey that makes this a sauce for the barbecue connoisseur.

A thick rib eye steak was the first thing I used this sauce on. I broiled it in the oven and put Gringo Jack’s Smokin’ Whiskey BBQ Sauce on right at the last couple of minutes. I ended up with a medium rare rib eye that had one of the most phenomenal tastes I’ve ever had the pleasure of experiencing.

Championship BBQ Ingredients – Rubs and Mop Sauce

If you ask the BBQ experts rubs and mop sauces are key to every Championship BBQ team. They have distinct purposes in the smoking process to make the meat taste moist and delicious.

- Rub that meat

The bbq rub is a must have ingredient for the bbq or smoking process. There are two key concepts to keep in mind when creating you own rub. The proportion of salt should be great enough to trigger osmosis and begin to draw the moisture from the surface of the meat, and the amount of sugar should not be excessive because it will caramelize and burn during smoking and leave the meat with a bitter taste. Dry rubs are used to coat the meat and adds a flavorful crust to the meat.

Below are rub bases that you can create a variation of to create your own dry rub.

InsaneChicken’s BBQ Rub

3 tablespoons salt
2 tablespoons crushed red pepper
1/2 tablespoon dry rosemary
1 tablespoon chopped garlic
2 tablespoons cayenne pepper
2 tablespoons paprika

Delicious Suffering Hot Sauce Review

Delicious Suffering Hot Sauce – With an ingredient hit list that boasts habanero peppers and Serrano’s, Delicious Suffering delivers pain and pleasure. The heat is butt kicking and immediate. The taste of the additional ingredients blend well with the two peppers. There’s onion, tomatoes, garlic, cilantro, salt, vinegar, and a few secret spices. Add to the mix some chili extract and you’ve got a monster that tastes good and provides a hot burn.

I started this one off on a slice of soft mozzarella just to get a feel for the sauce alone. I knew the smooth texture and subtle taste of the cheese wouldn’t interfere. I was right. It didn’t stand a chance against the sauce. It did help to ease the pain a bit, because when I tried a couple drops of Delicious Suffering on a corn chip, I got the full force of the fire.
