This post is for all of you out there who don’t like hot sauce that this a) too vinegary, b) too flavourless and c) too hot.
I am a big fan of hot sauce, myself (and I even like the vinegary ones) but I do not like hot sauce that sacrifices flavour for screaming heat. Blech. For me hot sauce is as much about the rich chili flavour kick as it is about the tingling mouthfeel. For that reason, I like a hot sauce to be ‘mild’ enough so that I can really taste it, and flavourful enough so that I will really want to taste it.
