    I collect the stuff. You ought to see our Pantry. We have a new place we hit on our way to visit the In-Laws in Franklin, NC. Hillside Orchards Farms near Tiger, Georgia. I love their 5 Pepper hot sauce, but can't find a photo of it. [​IMG]

    But, here are some of my other favs.



    Tobasco Chipolte....nice sauce, good flavor, mild hot



    Cholula....probably my favorite "go to" sauce. Great on EVERYTHING. We even use it on Eggs. Excellent flavor with just the right amount of heat.



    GatorHammock....great sauce for Ribs



    Scorned Woman.....this is close to my limit. We add a very little of this to Chili to give it a better punch.

    And for those of you that love any of the Dave's Insanity sauces, you should be shot. [​IMG]

    Guess my favorite is good ol' Louisiana Hot Sauce. Makes killer Buffalo wings.
    Son Michael brought me a case (12 bottles) of some stuff called Weed Killer, and it is. [​IMG]

    OMG! I can't even begin to answer this...we use tabasco on a lot, but for different food we use different sauces. I took the hubby to 2007 Fiery foods & BBQ show in Albuquerque last March. We came home with around 50 jars of sauces, rubs, you name it. My absolute FAVORITE wing sauce is Defcon 2. It was one of the scovie winners from 2006 I believe. Below is a link to the 08 scovie winners. There are many categories, so check them all out. Check out the fresh salsa winner too, he had some great stuff. Seriously though, we have probably 75 bottles of hot sauce. Everytime a friend goes some where or sees something unique, they buy a bottle for us!

    Yes, this is hot stuff. It also doubles as a concrete stain remover. Said so on the bottle anyway.

    I'm with Flash on the Tabasco Chipotle, Cholula, and add Crystal's. I don't use hot sauce as much as I used to... but the above are still at the top of my list. Good choices Flash.

    You guys sound like us. We love to look at them, but some are just pure trash and more for the funny bottle they come in. I like to do some taste tasting first, if I can, then select the good ones. Dave's Insanity sauces were just too much and I LIKE hot, but not his. I guess you can use it, like I do with the Scorned Woman, just adding a teaspoon or less to a big pot of chili to kick it up several notches. Definantly not a sauce to sprinkle on your morning eggs though [​IMG]

    Tabasco Chipolte and Crystal hot sauce are what I use most.

    Butt, I found this stuff last weekend, gave it the finger test and it is way yummy! This isn't quite like what has been mentioned here, it is thick like mustard and has a great horseradish flavor with that wasabi zing... this will go great with beef!

    There used to be a small shop off Kam Highway between Pearl Harbor and Honolulu that had walls of hot sauces. Hot B*tch at the beach was one of my favorites. A little dab will do ya :)
