I love spicy food and hot sauces. I was thinking about making my own. Any tips or suggestions? What is your favorite hot sauce? I kind of wanted to do a roasted habanero with low vinegar. And some other crazy stuff. I was even thinking about growing my own peppers and tomatoes. I suck at that though so I think just the farmers markets will be where I get them.

My favorite is Harold's Dangerously Hot. It provides a nice "punch" of heat, but still retains a nice full flavor. There are a few sauces hotter than this that I do like, but this one remains flavorful given how hot it is rather than just burning your face off. It's made from Red Savina Habaneros.

I love hot sauces but have never tried making my own. The products from <a href="http://www.southdevonchillifarm.co.uk/shop/index.php?target=categories&category_id=17" target="_blank">South Devon Chilli Farm</a> are very good.<br><br><img alt="" src="http://www.southdevonchillifarm.co.uk/shop/images/product_images/webhhab.jpg" style="border:0px solid;"><br><br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/lick.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":lick:"><br><br>
I'm also a big fan of good old fashioned Tabasco especially on Pizza. I had some "Dave's Insanity Sauce" once which was great but I haven't seen any since.

Tapatillo and Cholula are favorites. Cholula makes a wonderful lime and chipotle and habanero sauce.<br><br><a href="http://www.veggieboards.com/newvb/attachment.php?s=ecce5077f0d6dc1233dd8ec67f0149cc&attachmentid=14715" title="">Attachment 14715</a><br><br><a href="http://www.veggieboards.com/newvb/attachment.php?s=ecce5077f0d6dc1233dd8ec67f0149cc&attachmentid=14716" title="">Attachment 14716</a><br><a href="http://cdn.veggieboards.com/1/12/12e8de7f_vbattach14715.jpeg"><img alt="LL" src="http://cdn.veggieboards.com/1/12/525x525px-LL-12e8de7f_vbattach14715.jpeg" style="width:186px;height:525px;"></a><br><a href="http://cdn.veggieboards.com/6/6d/6dc399dd_vbattach14716.jpeg"><img alt="LL" src="http://cdn.veggieboards.com/6/6d/525x525px-LL-6dc399dd_vbattach14716.jpeg" style="width:390px;height:292px;"></a>

I second the cholula recommendations (especially the lime one!) I also love sriracha and valentino.<br><br><img alt="" src="http://www.huyfong.com/images/sriracha.jpg" style="border:0px solid;"><img alt="" src="http://www.importedmexicanfoods.com/images/sauces_p009s.jpg" style="border:0px solid;"><br><br>
Hottest one I've ever had was something called Z but its flavor was terrible.<br><br><img alt="" src="http://ep.yimg.com/ca/I/hotsauceworld_2144_76886927" style="border:0px solid;">

Valentino is more like cholula than sriracha. It's appropriate for mexican food and the like rather than asian food. I'm not sure I've tried Tapatillo, I may have to look into that.

I like Red Hot better than Tabasco.<br><br>
Anyone ever have Dave's Insanity Sauce? He has a lot of other tasty hot sauces too. <a href="http://store.davesgourmet.com/SearchResults.asp?Cat=38" target="_blank">http://store.davesgourmet.com/SearchResults.asp?Cat=38</a>

The Best hot sauces are usually from the Caribbean-Matouk's from Trinidad and the Marie Sharps products from Belize.<br><br>
A simple Caribbean sauce is easy to make and dirt cheap too-a bit hard on the eyes/sinuses as it cooks though.<br><br><a href="http://www.pepperfool.com/recipes/hotsauce_idx.html" target="_blank">http://www.pepperfool.com/recipes/hotsauce_idx.html</a>

I have tried that! I don't remember how it tasted, though, because it was part of a hot sauce challenge where you went down the line of about eight hot sauces ranging from tabasco from death with a handful of chips and ate a scoop of each.

I'm a sucker for advertising. So, there's so many cool looking hot sauces that are just run of the mill. That's why i stammer at Dave's sauces. Sounds like all hype and not the best quality. but,....
