Mad Dog Liquid Fire Hot Sauce Review

Mad Dog Liquid Fire is the ideal introduction to the world of hot sauces.  After removing the screw-on cap and taking your first whiff of the bottle, your nose hairs will still be intact, your vision unblurred by the tame promise of the heat (or lack of heat) to come.

Your first tentative taste will reveal a vinegary liquid with a smooth consistency, mild smell and a flavor that is easy on the palate. However, what this sauce lacks in heat it makes up for in flavor.  Mad Dog’s hot sauces have long been a favorite – the company consistently offers its customers a variety of products with an array of levels of heat, from mild to ring your bell hot.  Yet Mad Dog still manages to never sacrifice flavor in the name of scoring a high number on a ‘hotness’ scale.

Mad Dog 357 Ghost Hot Sauce Review

It’s hard to ignore a bottle of hot sauce with an intense hologram on its label.  It’s even harder to over look it once your read the text (text that is set over silver, reflective skulls I might add) on the side of the bottle and its sweet nothings become imprinted in your brain: “Ever seen a ghost?  One taste of Mad Dog 357 Ghost Pepper Hot Sauce and you will – your own!”  This ghost pepper edition boasts a full, hearty flavor that tastes of pine and has a sweet smell that doesn’t overpower your dining experience.  After tentatively dousing a baked sweet potato in the thick, syrupy sauce, my first coated bite revealed a serving of heat that was both immediate and all encompassing in flavor.  The sweet taste filled my mouth, and my dinner date deemed the sauce simply “physically hot” in its nature.  Continue Reading

Ultra Hot Mad Dog Ghost Pepper BBQ Sauce Review

As someone who religiously tops pizza with hot sauce and in turn dips the crust in barbeque sauce, Mad Dog’s Ghost BBQ Sauce and its promise to serve up an “intense BBQ experience” immediately intrigued me.  I’ve had a few run-ins with Mad Dog’s Original BBQ Sauce in my day, but I’ve also found myself toeing the line with the ghost pepper (or Bhut Jolokia) as of late, a pepper that has a history of providing a hefty dose of spice and has caused my eyes to tear up on more than one occasion.   Feelings about the ghost pep aside, Mad Dog has had my number for years, and it didn’t take a huge leap of faith for me to pour a generous amount of this new sauce on to my plate.  And “pour” is the optimal word here – after a good shake, the sauce flowed out from the bottle’s wide mouth with ease and pooled into a puddle next to my pizza.  There was nothing watery in the least about this sauce.  Continue Reading

Top 10 Pepper Extracts

The key ingredient to Pepper Extracts is capsaicin and can be obtained only from chile peppers and in not any other plant, animal, or mineral. Detectable to the human taste buds to one part in one million, this formidable alkaloid is extracted from hot chiles as an oleoresin (thick oil) used in super hot sauces, pepper sprays and pepper extracts. Pure capsaicin is so potent that chemists who handle the crystalline powder need to work in a filtered “tox room” in full body protection. The suit has a closed hood in order to avoid breathing … Continue Reading

Mad Dog Inferno Reserve Review

Mad Dog Inferno Reserve Hot Sauce – You can see the trouble waiting for you through the bottle. Mad Dog Inferno is dark brown with some blood or brick red overtones. You can see the concentrated pepper extract waiting for you — daring you — to give it a try. Unless you are bullet proof, this stuff should be used sparingly, and if you seriously want to taste it straight from the bottle, as I did, you need to limit your intake. I would not be going overboard telling you to sample with a toothpick. Seriously, that’s all you need to get the message.

The ingredients here are vinegar, molasses, concentrated pepper extract, garlic, jalapeno pepper, onion, habaneros, chile extract, clove, and some herbs and spices. With this much extract, you know it’s not for the innocent. Continue Reading

Mad Dog 357 Hot Pepper Sauce Review

Mad Dog 357 Hot Sauce – 357, 000 on the Scoville heat scale. That’s damn hot. The label has a long list of terms of agreement before you use this sauce. That’s because Mad Dog sauces are violently hot. If you’re one of those guys or girls that like pain, this is a sauce for you.

I’ve tried it alone and with foods. Even as an additive to other foods, Mad Dog 357 is only marginally workable, and then only if you have enough common sense to use it in moderation.

There’s not a whole lot to this sauce.  Vinegar, chile extract, cane juice, habanero peppers, garlic, onion, and cayennes that measure 160,000 on the Scoville chart themselves. Continue Reading

Mad Dog Original BBQ Sauce Review

Mad Dog BBQ Sauce – In the world of commercial barbecue sauce, there are the dozen or so major brands that take up all the space on the supermarket shelves, then there are the hundreds, perhaps thousands of small independent manufacturers whose sauces are sold in specialty stores or perhaps only online. Mad Dog bridges these two worlds. It’s probably one of the largest if not the largest of the smaller brands and is well known and highly regarded by much of the public.

How does a smaller brand get to play with the big boys? It helps to be super delicious and have award-winning quality. Mad Dog’s recipe is pretty simple – Continue Reading

Mad Dog 357 Ghost Pepper Hot Sauce Review

Mad Dog 357 Ghost Pepper Hot Sauce – Whereas, there are some hot sauces that are darn near too hot for their own good (or yours); and whereas, humans’ taste receptors are located on their tongues; and whereas, some of those wicked-hot hot sauces make it hard to review because a single drop placed on the tongue burns said appendage so badly the reviewer cannot taste much of anything, let alone breathe without hiccupping; therefore, let it be known that this reviewer will do his best to provide not only a sense of how Mad Dog 357 Ghost Pepper Hot Sauce tastes, but also ways it can be consumed without causing injury.

If you’ve been on this site for any length of time, you probably know by now that the “ghost pepper” (bhut jolokia) is officially listed as being the world’s hottest pepper. Continue Reading

Mad Dog 357 Review

357 Mad Dog Hot Sauce – Most hot sauces that are any hotter than Tabasco claim that they will make your mouth burn so much that you will be knocked on the floor. Most will, but only if you have a canker sore, or are recovering from oral surgery. Most are all talk and funny labels. They invoke burning buttholes and the fires of hell. As a result, they are great gifts. In addition, they are often tasty, and go-to sauces for chili-heads looking to spice up their pizza or eggs. However, they are not what they say they are. Not even close. They are not bottled hell-fire. They are merely a condiment.

Mad Dog 357 is the real deal. It has ruined many a half-hour period for me. It gives me a weird throbbing sensation in my ears. Continue Reading

Mad Dog Teriyaki Hot Pepper Sauce Review

Mad Dog Teriyaki Hot Sauce – Mad Dog is a hot sauce company that seems to not be content with the general, table hot sauce varieties. Although they do have utility sauces, the company is not shy about producing niche flavors.

Mad Dog Teriyaki Hot Sauce is one of those niche sauces, adding an Asian tang with some smoky heat to light up any meal.

The flavor has a strong smokiness to it that masks the heat that slowly creeps into place as you eat it. There is also a tanginess to it that complements the burn. Although it is labeled as a teriyaki sauce, it definitely works better as an additive to another stir-fry sauce. Continue Reading

Mad Dog BBQ Sauce Review

Mad Dog BBQ Sauce is a meaty tasting sauce heavy on the smoke and with just a touch of warmth. Mad Dog has made some fine hot sauces, so I wasn’t surprised to find a barbecue sauce this rich and flavorful. This is the kind of sauce you want to slather on a side of ribs, some lamb, veal, and any other kind of meat you’re in the mood for. This is a barbecue and meat lovers sauce of choice.

Mad Dog BBQ Sauce has a medium thick pour, a rich brown color, and grainy texture that leaves a big taste in your mouth. After cooking a couple of steaks on the grill with this sauce painted all over them, I added more on the plate, just to dip my meat in. I even barbecued some burgers for the kids and had one myself, just because I wanted more of the Mad Dog. Continue Reading

Mad Dog Teriyaki Hot Sauce Review

Mad Dog Teriyaki Hot Sauce begins with a subtle aroma that’s very pleasing to inhale. As you would expect, the smell is immediately reminiscent of something Oriental. I poured a little on a spoon and sampled it. The sauce tastes exactly like it smells. It has a rich Oriental overtone brought on primarily by the tamari, ginger, and sesame oil. There’s also some honey and sea salt, kicked up by a dose of chili extract that adds a nice little heat factor to the situation.

There’s not a lot of uses for Mad Dog Teriyaki Hot Sauce. The flavor is so distinctly Oriental that anything you use it on will taste that way. I found it excellent on fried rice in play of soy sauce. Continue Reading

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

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

Based on hot peppers of the capsicum family such as chilly peppers, red peppers, tabascos, habaneros Continue Reading

Habanero Hot Sauce – Beware!

The Habanero hot sauce is an icon amongst all the various types of hot sauces that are available in the market. Chili peppers are fruits of plants hailing from the Capsicum genre and Habanero happens to be the most spicy and hot pepper in this lineage.

The habanero pepper is a small lantern, round or oblong shaped pepper with small creases and the colors range from green to bright orange when ripe. The habanero’s size can vary from 1″ – 2.5″ in length and 1″ – 2″ in diameter and it is the hottest chile on the Scoville scale, with an intense flaming, flowery flavor. Continue Reading

Mad Dog 357 Ghost Pepper Review

Like most chiliheads I’ve been known to pray for hot threesomes that leave my tongue hanging and sweat pouring down my face. The people of the Mad Dog hot sauce line have heard my prayers and responded with Mad Dog 357 Ghost Pepper Sauce, which contains (in order) the Bhut Jolokia (1,000,000+ Scoville units), the Habenero (350,000 Scoville units), and the African Bird’s Eye chili (100,000+ Scoville units).

Say this with me: “ouch!” This potent tag-team of capsaicin kings is designed specifically to floor you in the first round, but continue beating you senseless long after you’ve conceded defeat. Continue Reading

Mad Dog Inferno Hot Sauce Review

Mad Dog Inferno Hot Sauce is not so much a sauce as it is a paste. You’ll build some great upper arm stretch trying to pound a few drops of this sauce out of the bottle. The good news? You’ll only need one. This stuff is monstrously hot. A solo taste produced more than an hour’s worth of full-mouth burn, quelled very little by water or milk. It has a thick, grainy consistency and a dark, chocolate brown color. Uncapped, the imposing scent wafts out of the bottle like some sort of evil genie ready to grant your wish for oral masochism.

The heat is rapid and sustaining. For a second run, I slathered a drop in the middle of my roast beef sandwich with provolone (on wheat). Roast beef is one of my favorite lunch meats, but sometimes it just seems unexciting. Continue Reading

Idiot Boyz Habanero Hot Sauce Review

I thought Idiot Boyz Habanero Hot Sauce was just another oddly named pepper sauce angling for attention on a crowded store shelf. Then I tasted it and understood that the name is perfectly apt — because you’re an idiot if you underestimate both the flavor and the savage afterburn that this sauce delivers.

I took my customary initial taste by putting a drop on my finger and licking it off. “Ooh, now that’s hot!” was my first reaction. It really is a fiery concoction, featuring not only habaneros but also chile extract (the appearance of any pepper extract ensures a painful experience). Then the flavor came in, thanks to a nice combination of lime juice, onion, and garlic (which were prominent), and evaporated cane juice, which delivered a subtle sweetness that just barely broke through the heat. Continue Reading
