ChinaskiChinaski Santa Cruz, CA
so what's your go to hot sauce (if any)? ya know, the standards.. tabasco (reg, green, chipolte), tapatio, cholula, sriracha, franks, texas pete, crystal hot, or <insert your fav that i didn't name. like for example, i love the Pepper Plant that isn't as popular as the one's i just said off the top of my head>.

and what do you like to put it on? tacos, salads, pizza, eggs, life?

    Sriracha all the way. Sometimes Tabasco for seafood. Oysters with a sprinkle of Tabasco. Sooo good.

    red tabasco on eggs, but this stuff on anything i want hot (mostly asian or indian), i just use the ortega hot taco sauce on tacos or whatever (except when i degrade myself and get taco bell, fire or diablo):

    Daves Ghost Pepper Naga Jolokia Hot Sauce 5oz

    *edit* note that even though i like it hot, i still use an amount of this stuff measured in single-digit drops.  the bottle should last me about 20 years.

    I'm more of a sweet chilli girl myself, but I will hoover up anything with a chilli and garlic mixture on it!

    If you're in to hot sauces, then I hope you watch the First We Fest YouTube show called Hot Ones, different celebs and sports stars each week eating ten wings and answering questions and they ramp up the heat of the sauce with each wing, it's genius.

  • Hot Ones is one of my favourite shows - I love it!

    (and I'm a vegetarian who doesn't really like hot sauce haha!)

    Also, I wonder if @Jim knows about this. Hot sauce aged in Pappy Van Winkle barrels. Could be interesting.

    @Murderbear Like most whiskey related food products, it's probably more of a gimmick than anything else. That being said, it's still about as close to a bottle of Pappy as most people are going to get.

  • @Chinaski Totally agree about Pepper Plant. It always makes me happy when the breakfast place I am eating at has that option. Great sauce.

    I'm no aficionado or anything, really far from it, but I was looking for something new to try the other day and picked up Gunslinger's Chipotle Habanero Pepper Sauce and I really enjoy that. Typically I'm a big sriracha guy.

    Marie Sharp is like the national hot sauce of Belize, and it's soooooo delicious!  You can find it in various levels of heat at any place that serves food there.  And just recently, I've seen a few flavors pop up in American supermarkets too!  (and you can get it on amazon)



    And there is my favorite chinese sauce, which my wife's family uses... called Old Lady sauce-- Lao Gan Ma, with the iconic pic of the lady on each jar.  The chili flakes one is good, but the black bean one is the best:

    I like the chili oil they have at pho places. The kind they don't want to give me because I am white, and they warn me against using before they dig it out of the back room, lol. I don't know what the brand(s) is/are because it's always in the little jar. 

    I also like Tapatio, Sambal Olek and Sriracha is OK for when it's called for, but I am not a sriracha-on-everything person.

    My Wife is Vietnamese. I don’t think I’ve ever been to any of her friends or families’ houses that didn’t have Srirchia.

    Sriracha is great, but doesn't go with everything.

    I'm all about the Valentina black label on mexican dishes, omlettes, and pizza.

    Also, smoky chili oil goes great in stir fry and other wok dishes.

    Nando's Peri Peri is legendary, i wish there were more Nando's in the US. Pretty sure they're just around like Virginia and DC.

    Ok.....shit yeah @Chinaski...  hot sauce is a big fucking deal for me. My mother-in-law always has some sort of heat adder at the ready for me. (She’s so cute and sweet.) And being from H-Town, I fuck with a lot of shit. Here goes:

    Cholula on Mexican seafood
    Louisiana Hot Sauce on fried chicken or morning hash browns.  That’s the go-to Tabasco. Tobasco rules too. (Bloody Marys)
    Chinese chili oil for dim sum and dumplings
    Salsa - I’m a verde guy. A chunky bright tomatillo salsa verde, a creamy poblano that’ll light you up and your breffus tacos, a salsa guacamole on chips
    Sriracha - I’m a pho broth purest but I get after it in my spring roll’s peanut sauce and vermicelli bowl.
    The fuckin spicy shit in a can that turns hot pot into spicy hot pot.

    This is what I am talking about... It's not a successful pho night if my lips aren't numb afterward.

    Haha Ok solid burn returned. Guac salsa isn’t hot. Whatevs it’s good.

    @akritenbrink ,But yes that chili oil is the jam. I usually have white boy problems when I ask for a little bit of sesame oil for what I do w/ my dumplings. It’s like “ah shit he isn’t supposed to know!” And I’m like “I’ll pay for some!”  But a little soy sauce and sesame oil and chili oil is my jam.

    @cdrive Oh I get the evil eye every time I ask for the chili oil. I just eyeball them right back.

    For Eastern North Carolina style BBQ, any good establishment will have homemade sauce at the table, consisting mostly of apple cider vinegar with red pepper flakes, and a dash of salt (some do add a bit of brown sugar). The tartness of the vinegar and the little kick from the pepper is the perfect compliment to the fatty chopped whole-hog bbq.
