>>7267957 Alright. Here we go. There will be shit heads in this thread who order super special hot sauces from fucking amazon or some shit, but the truth is, sriracha is excellent for cooking, and franks is an awesome every day hot sauce. /thread
>>7267957 Hot sauce is cheap, just go buy some that look interesting and see what you like. Franks or crystal or louisiana can be good, but they're kinda bland and boring. I prefer mexican ones like el yucateco. Chill is alright but always tastes watery to me. Tabasco chipotle is good as fuck too for a barbecue flavor. Pickapeppa mango hot sauce is fucking delicious too, completely different flavor though.
It's cheap and not bad for you unless you get stomach ulcers or something.
Everyone will say their recipe is the best or special, but it's mostly the same shit.
You have louisiana hot sauce which is that traditional sour-spicy vinegar sauce they use in buffalo wings. You have "Mexican style" hot sauce which can either be identical to louisiana style, or it will be made with either habaneros or jalapenos since they're abundant as fuck. You might also find some sort of fruity mango-flavored stuff like the bottle with the wooden cap, or some kind of kooky chipotle junk.
Then you have Asian hot sauce which is the whole sriracha style shit made from the chilipeppers over there. Usually this has a pretty strong garlic taste to go along with it.
Everything else from those Jamaican scotch-bonnet sauces to XXX ASS-BURNER EXTREME SKULLDEATH TIGER GHOST PEPPER SAUCE is gimmicky and can either be excluded or replaced with one of the three above.
>>7267985 Frank's IS the classic flavor for hot wings, etc. but it needs a little help. Too mild. Sriracha is good for some cooking, but I wouldn't use it for everything. I usually keep about 4-5 hot sauces and use as needed. Nothing special though. If I really want to add heat I just add diced chilis.
Melinda's XXX or whatever is a really good habanero sauce. I keep Tabasco around for old time's sake. Fuck Dave's. I like the heat, but it tastes like rusty battery acid mixed with old people vomit. Cholula is great, but like Frank's, too mild.
I wish there were more commonly available hot sauces that had more kick than the usual standards but aren't a part of the scoville arms race. Melinda's are pretty good for that, but I need more.
>>7267957 Western hot sauces have a sour note because you're all vinegar addicted freaks Indian hot sauces tend to focus on the heat, add fat under high temperature (boiling or above) to bring out the flavour Oriental hot sauces tend to focus on spices in addition to hot peppers, often with soy or some other form of vegetable/seed oil as a "base". They're basically good out of the bottle. (Wasabi is a meme japs agreed)
I swear by siracha, cholula, franks, chipotle tobasco, and the occasional hipster hot sauce from whole foods or some shit.
my favorite all time hot sauce though? the chipotle habanero hot sauce that the mexican restaurant i cook for makes is fucking great. its not that stupid 100% pain shit where it just burns and doesn't taste like shit. my boss knows his shit
