Dave's is the hottest stuff that i know. I can only imagine the heat of the chili being discussed here.

The Dave's Insanity uses pepper extract instead of real peppers.  That's a different class of sauce...it's for heat, not flavor.

Yes. If you're using anything hotter than a Habanaro Pepper, heat pretty much becomes the primary focus. Flavor/taste is definitely secondary. I consider items like Dave's Insanity Sauce more of a novelty than an actual useful culinary product...I mean you could use it, but why?

I had an old bottle of Dave's that I finally tossed on the most recent refrigerator culling. I probably used less than a dozen drops of it since buying it over ten years ago.

On the other hand, I just opened a second bottle of Melinda's Ghost Pepper Sauce since Thanksgiving. During that time I've also used most of a bottle of Red Savina and of Scotch Bonnet. A really well made super hot sauce can be ALL about the flavor.

The current promo code for Figueroa Brothers is HEATWEEK. It will get you 15% off. Give Melinda's sauces a try, you will be convinced!

I guess if you have built your scoville tolerance high enough one could actually enjoy food impregnated with excessive amounts of capsaicion and actually enjoy the flavor of the recipe. Don't get me wrong. I love delicious well balanced spicy foods where all ingredients congeal together in a happy gastronomic marriage of flavorful pure bliss. I grew up eating Serrano and Jalepenos chilies that have great flavor. (In my opinion spice/heat can take most recipes to the next level when done right) Being a chef for some 20 years in various Thai,Mexican,French,Italian and Southwestern restaurants. I have found very little need to no need at all for the most part of excessively hot over the top spicy products.

That's not what I'm saying at all. What I'm saying is that there are fantastic sauces made from peppers hotter than habaneros. I suggest you invest the $5 or so and give one a try. You may be pleasantly surprised, and possibly change your mind. I have eaten Thai food that is much hotter and far less enjoyable than the products I've referenced.

I understand your position, but I find it indefensible because you yourself said that you stopped sampling. There are people who know how to balance the characteristics, it isn't just the heat, some of the super hots are just damn good. If it was just the heat, I would have used the Dave's instead of tossing it after 10 years of neglect. I agree with you that Dave's is not a culinary product; reference post #24 in this thread, you actually reinforced what I'd already written. But just because one company makes red capsaicin extract garbage doesn't mean that all 5oz bottles of heat are the same. They aren't.

I agree with what you said about all 5oz bottles are not the same, How could they be? My professional opinion is not based on one particular 5oz bottle of hot sauce or even the dozens upon dozens I have tried in the past.(use to try out different hot sauces about one per week and take them in to work for the staff to try did this for years as some of the staff) My point here being obviously missed. "Way To Much Heat-Capsaicion-Scoville what ever you want to call it in your food is overkill period" Uber spicy food Will Not/Cannot be Appreciated by the majority of the restaurant patronizing American public. On the other hand I know a few who actually relish/love excessive heat in their food but they are few.

As often happens in the world, different people have different experiences and different interpretations. We shall agree in some ways and disagree in others, I suppose. De gustibus non disputandum est.
