I keep a bottle of the red water around for the lightweights and ant control, theres a shelf on the fridge door with a large variaty of opened bottle, dave's insanity, a couple melindas, a few different el yuca, some blairs and of course the ultimate pure cap.
I just went and measured the pantry shelf where my backup bottles are, 22" deep and 5 or 6 bottles wide

    Jeez I can't believe people are dogging Tabasco so much. I like it, it's got a distinctive flavor that I can pick out blindfolded. I'll pick it anyday over Cholula.

    That rooster bottle and Tabasco do it for me. Maybe it's ignorance.

      Tabasco....love the flavor, and the heat's about right
      for me.

      Siracha is my favorite. I grew up with Texas Pete (made in
      North Carolina), but it's just not hot enough for me now.

        My tastes change but for right now it's(not necessarily in order): Tennessee Sunshine(especially on oysters)
        Lasco Hot Pepper Sauce(from Jamacia, goes great w/mexican)
        Siesta Key Oyster Bar(house sauce, goes great w/ most anything, especially on BBQ chicken, ribs, pork)

          I like Frank’s too. It has a complex flavor in addition to the (moderate) heat. I like Tabasco for certain things. My husband puts two or three shakes of it atop the yolks of his over easy eggs.

          Sriracha is made from sun ripen chilies which are ground into a smooth paste along with garlic and packaged in a convenient squeeze bottle. It is excellent in soups, sauces, pastas, pizzas, hot dogs, hamburgers, chowmein or on anything else to give it a delicious, spicy taste.

          two variations of sample packs available for those who would like to try all of their different sauces. http://www.huyfong.com/frames/index.htm


          This stuff is great. I use it frequently in the shrimp- or scallop-and-vegetable dishes I throw together for so many weeknight meals. I love the chili and garlic combination, though I almost always add more garlic. I didn't know Sriracha was a regional thing.

            I've never had a hot sauce I didn't like....my top three would be...

            1- Sriracha...use it on any and everything. Especially good in Pho.
            2- Dave's Temporary Insanity...good on everything.
            3- Franks...love the stuff.

              I too have never met a hot sauce I didn't like.... well some of them I hated the next morning

              for me and a vinegar based sauce is

              Ed's Red, a local florida based sauce

              as for other sauces

              I look for a well blended sauce, I like the carribean flavors and heat


              I try and make my own, when I can. I have some of Blair's 3,4, & 5 AM reserve, to really punch it up. nothing like 15 million scolville units to destroy your taste buds.

                  If favorite is the one I buy the most, then Frank's is my favorite.

                  There are many other hot sauces I love too. I haven't found a hot sauce shop in DC, but when I visit my hometown of Syracuse, NY, I usually pick up some new and/or interesting sauces at the Hot Shoppe. In addition, I pick up some unique bloody mary mixes, bbq sauces, mustards, and other bottled condiments. The place is insanely good.

                      That's a favourite in our house... though I still love Frank's for pizza and I put Cholula on just about everything. It's an expensive habit though, as I have to import them from the US!

                        I love the Sriracha! I too get it at a local Asian market. Other favorites are all types of Melinda's, Cholula, and Carolina Road Kill. I don't think I've ever met a hot sauce I've truly hated!

                          I have loved Sriracha ever since I first encountered it in a Vietnamese restaurant as a table condiment. It has a great sweetish, garlic taste along with its hot pepper kick. It's strong though - I gave bottles of it to my dad and brother and neither could tolerate it. I've had to search for it in the past - go to an Asian market or a special hot sauce emporium - but now my local Safeway carries it.

                          For everyday, Texas Pete is good and inexpensive and has a good balance of taste to heat. I find Tabasco to be all heat and not much other taste.
                          I like Cholula, too, for the same reason - it has good taste and interesting other spicing in addition to the chilies and has a "reasonable" degree of heat that doesn't obliterate the other tastes.

                            I agree with Pure Cap, and those who have mentioned Dave's Insanity. I also like Pleasure and Pain, Pain and Suffering, and Wet Fzart.

                              I love Inner Beauty Real Hot and when they stopped making it I put a case of it away for my own use. I use it only on (don't laugh) Egg McMuffins. That way I will have it for a long, long time.

                              I have many customers that still ask for it, but so far no one has copied the recipe.

                              There is one that is supposed to be similar called Rasta Fire but I find the only similarities are the color and the shape of the bottle.

                              Has anyone tried 911? Nice flavor for a habanero sauce.

                              For a vinegary sauce I like the Aji Green.

                              Ring of Fire Original is also quite good. Almost a salsa.

                              It and Datl Do It Devil Drops are both good sellers.

                                Believe it or not, I like "Emerils". I like "Crystal" too and "Sriracha" as well.
                                I think "Tabasco" is terrible stuff! "Frank's" would be good if it wasn't so salty.
                                I'm going to have to try 'Texas Pete's" after all the good things ya'll have said.

                                    I just said Tobasco because the original poster said "not Tobasco". But some dishes like mac & cheese and tuna casserole just need that dash of heat (and dry mustard for depth). My Mom always used Tobasco, so I do too. I think it may be one of those things that you kind of grow up with. I told a friend about adding a dsh of hot sauce and dry mustard to mac & cheese and she looked at me like I had grown a second head or something, but the dish is so BLAND without that little kick.

                                    For wings, I prefer Frank's, but again, it's what I'm used to eating...

                                        Y'all should try Scorned Woman hot sauce (from MacBeth..."Hell hath no fury like a scorned woman...")

                                        In my house we refer to her as "the woman" 'cause she ain't no lady!

                                        Excellent, distinct flavor, though if Texas Pete is your idea of hot, best not to go here...more for folks who like Dave's Insanity Sauce, though not quite as hot as this.

                                        The Scorned Woman flavored chips available on their website are also very good.

                                            Well I really do like my own homemade sauce which is a variation of Melinda's XXX but if I'm buying a hot sauce, I love El Yucateco Verde which I can buy for around a buck at my local Hispanic market.

                                              Re the Tabasco, I like it on eggs. Dave's Temporary Insanity Gourmet is good as well, and it will definitely clear your sinuses.

                                                My favorite is Cholula. It has a great taste, and is not just bottled fire. When my wife and I had our hot dog stand, we would go through 2-3 bottles of Cholula each week. As with everything else on our menu, we conducted taste tests, and Cholula was the winner, hands down. Whether white, Hispanic, or Native American, if people wanted hot sauce on our dogs, Cholula was the one they would use, even when we had other brands there.

                                                    Taco Bell Fire Sauce

                                                    Good Flavor and a little heat, its great on just about everything so far.

                                                    Just wish I had a friend who still worked there, I need some more!!!

                                                      To me Tabasco is vinegar with heat and very little taste other then vinegar. When using a hot sauce, which I do a lot, I want flavor and heat. But I no longer have to prove how macho I am by using pure cap or pure habanero sauces.

                                                      When I can find it I buy Cholula in 12oz bottles for the stove area and locally I can again get the 5oz bottle for the table. I need to acquire some of either the packets or the 1oz bottles for the car.

                                                      A couple years ago my local wal-mart quit carrying Cholula and I found it cheaper to buy what I needed over the 'net. Wal-MArt has gone back to carrying it.

                                                          I like Scorned Woman as well. Even though people are ripping on Tabasco, I really really like their Habanero hot sauce...it has soooo much flavor.

                                                          Others I like are Pain is Good Jamaican Style


                                                          My favorite by far has to be Stubbs Wicked Chicken Wing Sauce....it's nothing like typical wing sauce and is excellent on ribs or pork tenderloin or whatever you want to put it on. Tons of black pepper in it...

                                                            Another vote here for Huy Fong's Sriracha sauce (aka Rooster sauce)

                                                            El Yucateco from Mexico is another favorite.

                                                            I like all hot sauces EXCEPT for tabasco and all those stupid trying to be cute named sauces (example Big Mama's Butt Blasting Insanity straight from hell sauce)
