    Have you tried the current hottest one from "Taste the Pain"? Made by Blair, it is called "Caldera" and consists of 3 bottles of food additive (sauce), the first at 1 million Scoville Units, the second at 5 million SU, and the third at 10 to 13 Million Scoville Units! It is only $750 for 6 oz. I think it would be more for a conversation piece than for eating. The website, with a picture of it is at: http://www.tastethepain.com/cgi-local/webcart.cgi?CHANGE=YES&NEXTPAGE=calderatt.htm&CODE=113

    If you think this is too high a price for you, their one in second place is Blair's 6am Hot Sauce at 12 Million Scoville Units, a 2 oz. bottle for $174.75 at: http://www.tastethepain.com/cgi-local/webcart.cgi?CHANGE=YES&NEXTPAGE=6amtt.htm&CODE=114

    Okay, serious question: do people actually use these sauces? If so, is there anything here aside from the obvious "mine's bigger than yours" factor that makes people think that these sauces actually enhance the flavor of foods?

    I had a discussion with a guy on Roadfood over a year ago about the same thing. He had bought a bottle of one of Blair's sauces at some ridiculously high price (somewhere in the $hundreds, if I remember right) that rated way up there in Scoville units.

    He said he bought it as an investment. He was serious, and I supposed he knew what he was doing.

    I don't believe it would be possible to consume anything that rated at 12 million Scoville, so I definitely believe it's a "mine's bigger" thing. It certainly wouldn't enhance the flavor of anything.


    Oh, another thing, my current favorite for tabasco sauces is Louisiana Gold. My favorite habanero sauce is still Marie Sharp's. I'm currently working on a bottle of Marie Sharp's Green Habanero sauce that is incredible.

    In the Sundancer's opinion, the hotter is not better. I certainly like the ting but the flavor is better.

    If you desire the Sundancer's opionion, I personally like Choulula. It is not way overhead hot but tasty.

    if you don't want to taste the food, why order it? just take some white bread and douse whatever hotsause you want on it. i tire of people that equate good food with how much capsicum they can tolerate.

    sause should be a condiment/compliment.

    melinda's garlic. ooh aah.

    Choulusa Rocks.

    Extreme ain't the best and the best is what the taste indicates.

    Bottom-Dragger,
    You hit the nail right on the head - both times! Mr. Farley, a very wise barbecuer in Ashland City, Tennessee, once remarked to me, "Now you can make your sauce hot if you like it that way, but if it masks the taste of the meat, it's too hot. It had ought to make that good meat taste even better."
    The umpteen-Scovill-units thing is kind of like trying to see HOW hoppy an India Pale Ale can be brewed. After it gets up past 140-150 International Bitterness Units, my mouth starts going to sleep. Overkill City!
    Gimme a hot sauce with some REAL LIVE FLAVOR to it, and a nice, really bitter - but BALANCED - India Pale Ale. The two together are indeed a winning combination in my book.
    Not Currying Favor, Ort. Carlton in Rainy Athens, Georgia.

    I agree with Bushie. Try Marie Sharp's Habanero sauce (white label). It's cut with carrot juice and has a hot, smooth flavor.

    I have a fondness for Louisiana Crystal brand hot sauce. Good taste without alot of the salt in other sauces.

    Ever put Choulula on your pizza? I like it. As for the extremely hot sauces, gotta say I love them. I put just a small drizzle on part of my food, this way I get to taste the wonderful meats, but also get "zapped" once in a while.

    I enjoy Captain Rodney's made with scotch bonnet peppers. It's hot but has a nice fruity "island flavor" to it!

    Choulula it is for me! About 4 years ago I went thru about 30 hot sauces looking for a favorite. It had to have some heat and it had to have flavor. Choulula won hands down. Almost 2 years ago I ordered a case of 5.5 oz bottles from their web site. With shipping it was cheaper then buying 12 bottles at the local store. Last year and this year I picked up 4 bottles of the 12oz size at Jungle Jim's when I went to Cincy.

    I put Choulula on most things although I've never tried it on pizza. Gonna have to try that next.

    This isn't the same as the kind of sauce you've been discussing (though it can substitute for it in cooking), but I really love Asian chili-garlic sauce. If you haven't encountered it, it is what the name suggests: a coarse pasty substance made of crushed red chilis and garlic. Sometimes, I even eat a spoonful right out of the jar, but mostly I use it as a critical ingredient of sauces for stir-frying. There are many brands, but the easiest to get is probably a brand with a Vietnamese name made by Huy-Fong Foods. Even the Safeway here carries that, but if you go to an Asian market they should have several others.

    BT is so right. Huy Fong makes a great sriracha as well that is great on noodles and just about anything. In the restaurant world we call the chile garlic sauce rooster sauce because of the graphic on the plastic jar. In commercial kitchens we purchase it in 1 gallon containers for $11. It's great. I love it on rice, noodles and as an ingredient in many marinades.

    I love Texas Pete and Chaloula the best. Tabasco is a distant 3rd ... a little too hot for me. I do like the green chile Tabasco sometimes !

    After mentioning this topic to my daughter, who lives in Minneapolis, she commented that everyone's favorite hot sauce in Minnesota is Heinz Ketchup. We have noticed when we visit that things listed on menus as spicy really aren't all that hot. We like to bring regional food home with us from places we travel to, such as condiments, but we've never found any hot sauces from the North Country. Does anyone know of any?

    I like to add the sriracha to ketchup to spice it up a bit! I also use it in my mac n cheese! I have never tried cholula but get the feeling that I am definately missing something! I will buy a bottle on Friday when I go grocery shopping if the local Krogers carries it! Thanks for the tip!

    You may be disappointed, depending on what you eat it with. Cholula is Mexican and it somehow tastes best on Mexican food. I don't like it as well as the standard Louisiana brands (Tabasco, Crystal etc) on non-Mexican food, but on Mexican it's tops.

    Cholula is good. We have a bottle of it on our table. But we also have six other brands including, I believe we have every sauce made on Avery island. Rex in Hot, Expensive, San Diego.

    My favorite is Ring of Fire xtra hot habanero sauce. Good flavor and just the right heat for me.

    If you want it hot, have your tried Dave's Insanity Sauce. It blew my doors off.

    I like Cholula and Tapatio.

    Just a little bite to add flavor, but not overpower it.

    Hi, its me again! I went to the store today and bought cholula's. My husband and I tried it on burritos(o-kay, they were frozen but they were organic)and we both thought it was great! I haven't tried it on any non-mexican food yet B.T., but it makes sense that it would taste best on food from "south of the border". Thanks, and have a great night!
