Envy Hot Sauce Review

I have to admit, my mindset going into trying Envy Hot Sauce for the first time was not a fair one – I enjoy green sauces immensely, but had yet to find one with a distinctive enough flavor to stop me from automatically grabbing my personal standby, a certain green jalapeño sauce that you may have been privy to yourself at some point or another.  So I wasn’t expecting to sell the farm upon cracking open this new venture into green territory.  Despite a near heart-attack upon staring into the (unexpected) pair of wide green eyes printed on the side of the bottle’s label, my overall first impression of  it was favorable: the sauce had a thinner consistency than the green sauces I had dabbled in before, but it boasted a lime/citrus smell and flecks of a spice (cilantro?) swirled inside of the glass bottle.  Continue Reading

Da Bomb Beyond Insanity Review

“Da Bomb,” a version of “The Bomb,” may refer to a nuclear weapon, ala the atomic bomb, or to an English language idiom to characterize something as awesome (for example, “did you see the concert last night?  It was ‘da bomb!’” Unfortunately for everyone involved, this hot sauce’s flavors embodied more of the former definition and contained no trace of the latter.

From the moment that I held the small glass bottle that houses Da Bomb Beyond Insanity in my hot little hand, I was wary.  Reminiscent of the bottle that Alice discovers labeled “Drink Me” in Lewis Carroll’s “Alice in Wonderland,” I had an inkling that this hot sauce was going to either make me immediately smaller (as a direct result of shedding layers of clothes due to Da Bomb’s heat index), or swiftly grow larger (as my tongue swelled with spice/heat).  But which would it be?

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

Hot Sauce Dangers

Some people have questioned whether hot sauce or the hot peppers can be a danger to you. Peppers as a whole are not dangerous to you. They have plenty of vitamins and health benefits.  What can get to you is the Capsaicin. Capsaicin is potent oil, but there is no medical evidence that it is unhealthy for your body by consuming it in a sauce or in your food.

The effect you can get from this oil that is harmful to you is the burning from the oil found in very hot peppers like Habaneros, Ghost Peppers … Continue Reading

Dave’s Insanity Sauce Scoville Ratings

Dave’s Insanity Sauces Scoville Ratings
A growing interest in extreme hot sauces in particular can be dated roughly from the institution of the annual Fiery Foods and Barbecue Show in 1989. The original Dave’s Insanity Sauce premiered around 1993 and was one of the first sauces to be made directly from capsaicin extract, allowing it to be hotter than the hottest habanero-pepper sauces of the day. It was the only hot sauce ever banned from the National Fiery Foods Show for being too hot. It has been rated at 180,000 Scoville … 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

Ghost Train Ghost Pepper Sauce Review

Hello Chili Heads!

Today is a great day for some heat. Springtime is here in California and were all talking about what were going to plant for this year’s harvest.  Fortunately, there are many things for the family chili head to obsess on. Not only are vendors constantly creating new sauces to tantalize our taste buds but, there are many people out there trying to break the world record for the hottest chili. Currently the Bhut Jolokia holds the record, but when I spoke to Sue Hard, who is the co owner of Cajohn’s Fiery Foods, she said that … Continue Reading

Hottest Hot Sauce – Scoville Scale for Worlds Hottest Hot Sauces

People are constantly asking what are the world’s hottest hot sauces for 2012 so we put together the list of the hottest hot sauces ever created. If you are a hot sauce lover then chances are you have heard of the Scoville scale and know how it is used.  But for the newcomers to the love of hot sauce, it is interesting to note how hot sauces are rated and how hot they really can get.

The Scoville scale is a measurement of the spicy heat (or piquance) of a chili pepper. It is named after its creator, American pharmacist Wilbur Scoville. His method, devised in 1912, is known as the Scoville Organoleptic Test. The number of Scoville heat units (SHU) in a particular pepper indicates the amount of capsaicin present. What is Capsaicin? It is a chemical compound that stimulates chemoreceptor nerve endings in the skin, especially the mucous membranes.   Continue Reading

How hot is hot? When it comes to growing peppers, for some, it can never be too hot! News has it that there is a new King in town. King of the Hot Pepper!

The guys over at The Pepper Seed and several other sites, are telling us that the new crowned king is the Trinidad Scorpion Butch T. According to the post, the Butch T Trinidad Scorpion tested at 1,463,700 SHU (SHU = scoville heat units). The current official Guinness record holder is the Naga Viper pepper or ghost pepper which tested at 1,382,118 scoville heat units. Any way you test it that is amazingly HOT! Continue Reading

Choke You Chicken Peri-Peri Hot Sauce Review

Hello Chili heads and fellow BBQers extraordinaire!

It’s that time of year again where we look forward to that special day.  It’s the day that we stuff ourselves (oops, I mean the turkey) to the point of exploding and then we are barbequing, baking, or frying it to perfection. Right now, some weirdoes out there are probably reading this and asking themselves, “What about boiling it?” As for “Atomic Eh?” I’ll say this once…I don’t boil meat! It’s all about the BBQ baby! Mrs. Eh? is reminded by my introduction of her great Grandmother boiling chicken with … 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

Great White Shark Predator Review

Great White Shark Predator Hot Sauce – Like the predator this sauce is named for you, it creeps out at from the swirling dark blue waters to attack. I really expected a fairly mild heat level to this one and was surprised to find that its bite is as deadly as the Great White Shark’s.

The burn here is slow and almost sensual. It begins with a sharp hit, then backs off to allow you to enjoy the taste of the sauce, then it begins building again, until you find yourself wiping the sweat from your brow. That first taste and this experience are worth the price of a bottle. 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

Widow Hot Sauce Review

Widow Hot Sauce – First of all, if you have forgotten what the bottle looked like when you placed your order, you will likely be quite startled as, while unpacking your order, you find a big black spider on the bottle. Not on the label — on the bottle! It’s plastic, of course, but the two seconds it took me to process that fact were quite disturbing. The yellow, black, and red label also features a black widow — with the distinguishing red hourglass on her belly — sitting in a web. Blood drips from both her fangs and from the words “Widow” and “No Survivors.” There is also a warning that reads, “Extremely HOT SAUCE. Use one drop at a time!” I give the dramatic, attention-getting label 5/5. You really can’t help but notice it — and perhaps wonder whether you are up to the challenge. Continue Reading

Nuckin’ Futs Hot Pepper Sauce Review

Nuckin’ Futs Hot Sauce – Besides having a really cool name, this sauce can boast about how hot it is. This is the sort of heat that die-hard hot sauce and chili heads like to brag about. Here’s the deal, though. This sauce is off the charts when it comes to heat. The pepper here is habanero, which we all know packs quite a punch, but the extract added to boost this famously hot pepper is what sends it over the edge. If you decide to give it a try, be prepared for a shot of heat that will bring you to your knees.

With this heat comes flavor. The very first thing you taste is the flavor. Continue Reading

Dave’s Temporary Insanity Sauce Review

Dave’s Temporary Insanity Hot Sauce – As with all Dave’s hot sauces, this one extremely blistering. The word temporary in the title may lead you to believe the heat level is forgiving, but you would be wrong. There is nothing forgiving about the heat of this product. In fact, there is nothing even temporary about the heat level you’ll feel when give Dave’s Temporary Insanity Hot Sauce a try. This sauce will bring you to your knees on impact.

There’s a very simple list of ingredients here that consists of hot peppers, tomato paste, hot pepper extract, salt, cane vinegar, onions, and garlic. The flavors of this sauce, despite the extremity of the heat, come through loud and clear. The distinct taste of peppers are here, along with the subtle undertone of garlic and onion. Continue Reading

Venom Hot Pepper Sauce Review

Venom Hot Sauce – With a name like Venom, I expected an explosion from the word go. Venom is hot, for sure. It starts with a rich, smoky aroma, a dark orangish-red color, and a medium-thick pour. I started with a chimichanga, which is a flour tortilla filled with whatever your heart desires. This one was simple, stuffed with steak pieces, refried beans, cheese, and some avocado pieces. I dribbled some Venom over the top of the ingredients and cooked them in the oven.

While the heat level in Venom Hot Sauce could never be considered weak, it is by no means as dangerous as I’ve felt from other sauces. It’s enough to make anyone who loves his sauce hot stick around for seconds, and it’s certainly not for the uninitiated, but you should be able to eat it without going into cardiac arrest.
