    Ok since cycloneman insists on making us all hungry with his restaurant threads, I decided I might as well jump in. What is your favorite commercially made hot sauce?

    I have 3 on hand at all times

    Tabasco
    Tapatio
    Sriracha

    Others come and go, but these three are staples.

    What are yours?

    I love Tabasco and I have a green habanero sauce from a company called El Yucatan or something like that, it's really spicy, but I like it.

    I put them in everything from tacos to tater tot casserole. My wife just rolls her eyes at me... :)

    Texas Pete here. Also another hot sauce that's good is Georges. For hotter stuff, I like Tabasco. They also came out with a milder version that is green, but I can't find it in my small town.

    The answer is "All Of The Above" !

    The only things I don't put hot sauce on is ice cream and corn flakes .

    LOL, sure, blame it all on Cyclone!

    I always have some Cholula on hand, IMO, the best flavor of any commercial hot sauce. I drink the stuff straight on occasion. I happened to buy a nasty pineapple fried pie and I drank half a bottle just to get the taste outa my mouth. Shelley thought I was nutz. The pie was fine outside, but inside was moldy... YUK !
    Green Tabasco is usually somewhere nearby too.

    Tabasco for cooking with but if I'm making buffalo wings I take a bottle of Crystal hot sauce and mix with a stick of butter.

    I prefer habanero sauce and sometimes ciptole . When I want lighter then I go with the green jalapeno.

    Any chance of some help with a recipe. I'm growing some Trinidad Scorpions and want to learn to make a hot sauce.

    The Scorpion is supposed to be the new "Worlds Hottest Pepper". I believe them. I ate a small bite of one and my tongue was numb for 2 hours. Your hands burn when you handle them for very long.

    I'll trade ya my recipe for BBQ sauce.....

    For adding to prepared food, or raw oysters any Lousiana hot sauce.
    For making up Chili batches I like "Dave's Insanity Sauce" for heat.
