Post your favorite hot sauces. Pic is 357, the hottest sauce I like to eat. It has a delicious flavor, but it's fleeting because the heat quickly overtakes the flavor and because you can't use more than a drop or two without making food too hot.

I use this one to add heat to dishes like you OP. Or I'll put some in a dipping sauce to make it spicy.
Typically I don't really use a lot of hot sauce on my food, but I have a preference for Cholula, Tapatio, Tabasco, Texas Pete's, there are a few others I can't think of.

This thread reminded me that I haven't watched Hot Ones in like a year. I bought their hot sauce when it came out last year, it was alright, not very hot, though.

Not hot sauce, but I just had a particularly spicy experience. With my modest dinner (steak and curried rice), I had 3 small slices off of a hot pepper out of my close friend's green house. The 3 pieces totaled to about the same space that 6 or 7 grains of rice would occupy. I'm sweating, and I got dat pre-nasal drip. Fucking nodding hard. I packed the rest of the pepper up in a bag in my fridge to eat more tomorrow. The pepper was a carolina reaper, hotter than both the ghost pepper and the trinidad scorpion. It's a hybrid pepper (I believe of those two other peppers actually) and is the hottest in the world. In terms of heat, I'd put it roughly on par with that .357 sauce.

Pic related, Sriracha is the best motherfucking hot sauce i have ever eaten.

Also i once ate something called Mega-Death-Sauce, because i wanted something hotter than the usual and understood 'Megadess'.

I ate so much sriracha that I can never eat it again (at least not a lot of it)

I go to this local hot sauce/spicy food store where my old high school math teacher makes his own hot sauce, even authorized band hot sauces for Fu Manchu, Flaming Lips, Eyehategod, Goatwhore, High on Fire, Venomous Maximus (his band), a local band called Amplified Heat, and this really badass spicy BBQ sauce (named after a local festival). Seriously the best sauces I've ever had, perfect balance of flavor and heat. But I also usually get this Thai Ketchup, Secret Aardvark, and usually something different to try something new at the store.

I highly recommend checking their website (iBurn.com) for all your spicy needs, I highly recommend Big Daddy brand (that's my HS teacher's, seriously the best stuff ever)

But they also sell ground up spicy pepper blend (like roasted ghost pepper) so that you can add a dash of spiciness without diluting or ruining the flavor of your dish by adding too much flavorful sauce, I highly recommend it!

to my dismay, it seems that the goatwhore sauce is some kind of black pepper flavored barbecue sauce or something? It actually does sound like it could be pretty good, but I was expecting something more intense.
Oh well, at least that way I'll finish the bottle sooner and can have a new decoration.

It is important that people hear about this sauce. It isn't hot compared to .357 (at all) so it's probably something everybody can enjoy. I'd put it a small bit above tobasco sauce in terms of heat. It doesn't do it for me in that regard, but the flavor is so good that I still eat it frequently. It's called Iguana Radioactive Atomic Pepper Sauce, and it's a sharp smelling sauce, with a bite of vinegar in the aroma. It's also saltier than most (not more than franks or other mainstream sauces), coming in at 100mg sodium per serving (24 servings in that tiny bottle!). The strong mix of vinegar and salt with the habaneros, cayennes, and tabascos is reminiscent of buffalo sauce, but without all the artificial flavors associated with most buffalo sauces. If you don't like buffalo, don't let that scare you off. Trust me.

The ingredients are: Habanero, Cayenne, Tobasco, Carrot, Corn Vinegar, Onion, Lime Juice, Tomato Paste, Salt, Garlic, and Ascorbic Acid.

The link to the company's webpage about the sauce is below:

The reason I put the effort into making this nice post is because this sauce is really worth the $6. Order some now from Amazon someone who doesn't suck and you'll thank me when you get around to trying it. I'm about to have some right now, and I've almost burned through the whole bottle in just a month or two.

yo sorry for bailing on this board/post; back with an update. And Goatwhore is peppercorn based, it is not as intense as the EHG (which I think is most intense) but it still has a good kick highly recommend in mixing it with stuff that naturally has peppercorns like white tx gravy; Fu Manchu is more mustard base, not intense but good kick, High on Fire is more habanero base so it is spicier than all three but has that natural sweetness of a habanero.

dis me; so i'd figure i'd update from word from the sauce boss himself, Big Daddy, that there is another sauce in the works/been made and ready for mass production soon. Don't know the exact details on what it could be, or even the band, just know it's a legendary TX band. My first thought was ZZ Top, but just remembered the dude is also good friends with Butthole Surfers. So might be the latter.

Got some more intel on the upcoming sauce from Big Daddy (maker of those in post >>153549); the band is Butthole Surfers and the flavor profile mole (for the uninitiated, mole is a typical enchilada/sauce in Mexican cuisine; see pic).

Personally, I never dug mole (and it ain't a spicy sauce either) so this might be a pass on my end.

but also apparently the dudes of the Butthole Surfers are requesting it "to look like diarrhea" (as if it didn't already lol...) but also Big Daddy Trev himself is having a tough time perfecting it

Honestly, I may be bias but I honestly think they're all individually good and have unique flavor profiles that it all comes down to what flavor you want/the dish you have and personal taste, they're honestly all good and I always keep them all in rotation. So here's a quick run down of each band's hot sauce;
Venomous Maximus - blackberry worstershire
Amplified Heat - smoked jalapeños
Flaming Lips - pineapple habanero
Orange Show - spicy BBQ sauce with orange zest
Fu Manchu - mustard
Goatwhore - black pepper
High on Fire - habanero (which has a natural sweetness but obviously strong heat)
EyeHateGod - honestly forgot its exact flavor, other than it being one of, if not, the hottest out of all of them.

I don't know exactly what you mean by periphery, as he's not exactly on the outside of this scene as he's clearly making these sauces with these bands' permission, artwork, style, trademark, or whatever you want to call it. But also, he has a metal band himself (his is Venomous Maximus) while I will admit probably not the biggest name on the sauce list but they're all connected to him by being friends and/or gone on tour with the bands like EHG, High on Fire, and I know he went to school with people from Butthole Surfers and Steven Drozd from Flaming Lips.

so yes, he probably still smokes weed lol

There's multiple music festivals in which half those bands have played over the years. The other half probably wouldn't fit in, but if they did end up on the lineup they'd probably still draw a crowd.

Today I got the sauce in OP's pic, "357 MAD DOG", in my eye. It was fucking bad guys. I was driving when it happened too. I couldn't open my eye for 15 minutes without experiencing extreme burning, like infinite wintergreen freshness kinda but that's more painful than it sounds, and I had to flush it out for 10 minutes straight when I got to the Asian restaurant. My eyes are beginning to water up just thinking about it, and it still hurts an hour and a half later.

I won't explain how I got it in my eye, but I was bringing it to the restaurant to show the owner and waitresses (it's a family business). They're Indonesian so they like spicy food, but when I went in yesterday (I'm a feen), they didn't have any fresh hot peppers. I brought the sauce not just to show them, but also to make up for the lack of hot peppers, but they ended up having the hot peppers today, and they even gave me 4 to take home!

Pic is what I had, Singapore Style Rice Noodles (prepared vegan) w/fresh thai chili/cayenne hybrids (I think that's what they were at least, after talking to my friend). There's also sashimi maguro (tuna), and a Green Dragon Roll. Everywhere I've gone, the Green Dragon Roll is an eel + avocado roll, but this one was very bizarre (and delicious). It was avocado, carrot, gobo root, kanpyo (shaved exotic gourd), and oshinko (japanese savory pickled radish) with what may have been eel sauce. From what I read, all the japanese stuff in it is really healthy (kanpyo, gobo, oshinko, and seaweed wrap). It was all exceptionally delicious, and I had the munchies when I ate it which made it even better, plus I had just gotten an hour of exercise in- basically the ideal conditions for appreciating a meal in my opinion.

Some items are just vegan. Sometimes that's even the best recipe/way to do them.

I don't get piscetarian unless it's for purely healthy though.

I've got nothing against vegans though the preachy ones are almost as obnoxious as preachy anti vegans.

Bruh. Look at the fishing industry. It's ecologically fucked up. You need to be well-informed to ethically eat seafood. If the thing you're eating isn't unsustainable, the bycatch probably is, or it has some other ecological toll (like with farmed salmon).

I eat everything, and honestly don't know what's sustainable to eat and what's not.
