This stuff is amazing. All my life I've just used Tobasco out of habit. But Frank's has a much more flavor. I can't get enough of it.

Are there any other hot sauces that people recommend? RJ?

I love Franks. I put it on almost anything. Makes for good wings, too.

Another favorite is Sriracha chili sauce. Goes well particularly in broths if you want a hot soup.

Chipotle Tobasco, great flavor and good heat.

Frank's is my favorite for wings by far. El Yucateco makes a great habanero sauce among other things if you want to really fire something up, a little goes a long way. There's a brand called Uncle Dougie's that I like real well, their mustard habanero kicks ass.

For my tastes, Tabasco is the best for Bloody Mary's. I also like their chipotle tabasco and garlic tabasco....the garlic is excellent as a marinade for grilled chicken. I like Frank's and Red Devil for wings. My experience is that the sauces that make claims to be super hot are just that - hot but not flavorful. I opened a new bottle tonight called Iguana. It's a habanero sauce but the heat is tolerable, I liked it added to some barbecue sauce.

So many hot sauces, so little time.

I like the sriracha with grilled fish and Asian foods. Too hot for my wife and daughter so I add it after cooking.

The mainstream hot sauce I always reach for is Chalula. But Franks is a very good product for something so readily available.

I also have some stuff called "Rectum Fire" that actually has some flavor.

I can't say that I've tried a lot of different hot sauces, but of the handful of brands that I've tried, Frank's is my favorite. I use it on a lot of things. I like to microwave a little cheddar cheese on a trisket and top it with Frank's for snack.

Different company. From reading wikipedia Sriracha is the kind of sauce, but has been copyrighted by a particular company in the US for use as the name of their particular sriracha sauce. One company must prefer roosters while another likes ducks.

stlchiefs ... you'll have to let me know if you ever see the other flavors anywhere and post it here, because I want to find that ginger one

I bet Global Foods Market in Kirkwood has it but I'll have to look closer next time I go. Where do you buy yours?

They actually carry it at Schnucks. I haven't seen any of the other flavors, but I'll be sure to take a good look next time. Global Foods is a good thought as well. Let me know if you find it as well.

My homeboy hipped me to it and now the majority of my diet is made up of this hot chili sauce. I've killed a fifth of the bottle in a week.

Thanks to this thread, I added Sriracha to my repertoire about a year ago. I'm kind of traditional in that I use the Sriracha in anything oriental and go for the Franks for things that are more southwestern. Sriracha is great with cabbage.

Never cared for Franks. Louisiana Hot Sauce is probably my favorite but it really depends on what I'm eating. I like Tobasco, Arizona Gunslinger, Crystal and the Sriracha is great with Sushi. Dave's Insanity Sauce is a novelty so don't eat it. And of course in Springfield there's nothing like Mexican Villa hot sauce and chips.

So there you have it.. My $.02 worth on hot sauce.

I am a big hot sauce fan. At any given time, I have over a dozen different bottles in the fridge. There are certain must-haves that haven't been mentioned.

El Yucateco's Salsa Kutbil-ik de Chile Habanero
Melinda's XXXXtra Reserve
Melinda's Amarillo Mustard
Boulder Hot Sauce's Smokey Serrano
Boulder Hot Sauce's Harry's Habanero
Bufalo's Chipotle
Trappey's Peppers in Vinegar
Pico Pica's Picante Sauce


These are all unique and amazing.

I lived in Buffalo for a number of years. Frank's is the one almost all the bars and wing joints use on their wings. I go back and forth between Franks and Crystal. I probably lean toward Crystal.
Man I want some wings now.

and the Sriracha is great with Sushi. Dave's Insanity Sauce is a novelty so don't eat it.

The only practical use I can think of for Dave's is putting two or three (literally) drops in a pot of homemade chili. Did that once and it's palatable though one pays for it later. Otherwise, indulge at your own risk.

On the other hand, that Sriracha garlic is great for everyday use. Flavorful w/o being overwhelming. Thee best hot sauce ever, IMO.
