    There is also Dave's After Death Hotsauce, but I don't think it's made anymore.

    I also have - Mad Dog Inferno Hot Sauce

    Oh, Evo! I gotta have some! A garlic twang right in the middle of that heat would be so amazing!

    This reminds me of something we were discussing in biology class. We were talking about taste sensations of sweet, salty, sour, and bitter, and someone in the class said Japanese scientists were working on classifying another taste. Anyone heard of that? I think they were calling it "wasabi" after, well.. wasabi, which is hot-tasting. Do we have specific "hot" taste receptors on the tongue? It seems to me that they all feel the burn when you eat something spicy.

    Yeah, it's good. Not that I've ever just poured it into a teaspoon and eaten it that way. Oh, no, that would be wrong. :uhh:

    Oooh wasabi. That, like horseradish, will clear your sinuses. :tongue: I haven't heard of the new taste though.

    I remember this little shop (near Fisherman's Wharf) that sold hundreds of different kinds of hot sauce (all with funny or naughty names)...and nothing else, I think. Been there ?

    I think the whole idea of only having four types of taste receptors in different parts of the tongue is outdated, it just hasn't worked its way out of textbooks yet.

    I'm just imagining MIH having a guy over for dinner, serving up some great Texas BBQ, and then setting a bottle of "Scorned Woman" on the table in front of him. :rofl: I guess you should wait until you know a guy really well before you let him near your hotsauce.

    I've got to get some new hotsauces. I don't really like Tabasco because it has too much vinegar for my liking. I like ones that either add heat without much other flavor...just a few drops to give food a good kick rather than to change the flavor...or that have a really nice, rich, non-vinegar flavor.

    The name must be a reference to the proverb that

    I have used Total Insanity and Mad Dog Inferno many times. They are among the hottest. I don't have Ultimate Insanity yet, but I do have Dave's Gourmet Private Reserve. :biggrin:

    One place where I get various hot sauces - Including Megadeath, Da Bomb, Satan's Blood - and Hot Licks products are pretty good.

    Hot Licks has a store in Long Beach -
    Shoreline Village
    419-H Shoreline Village Drive
    Long Beach, California

    I try to find and collect hottest sauces. :biggrin:
     
  14. At least make him buy you dinner first. :tongue2:
     
  15. Oh hellz yeah! Just discovered when I moved into my dorm. Freakin' delicious!
     
  16. Some day I'm going to make my own hot sauce. The ingredents will be capsaicin and water, mostly capsaicin.

    Wait! Damnit my secret recipe is out!:devil:

    It's comforting to know I am not alone in my love of the spicy red stuff!!

    Gokul, I have been to Fisherman's Wharf, but unfortunately I missed the hot sauce shop! If only I had known!!!:frown:

    Moonbear, my momma always told me to never let a man near my hot sauce until the third date!:approve:

    Thanks for all the great suggestions, y'all!

    oh, I almost forgot .... I could eat this stuff straight up from a teaspoon like Evo does - I mean like Evo said you shouldn't :wink:

    mmm...Sriracha!

    Oooh, I'll have to try some. I love hot sauce.

    I've been known to bring out my hot sauce on the first date. :blushing:

    MIH, you beat me to it! They also make a really nice Chile garlic sauce, not as smooth as the sriracha, but great straight up or for adding some heat to other sauces like peanut, hoisin, nuoc cham, etc. Nice company too, they just had a write-up in a recent Saveur.

    Tabasco has a chipotle pepper sauce that is pretty good too, if you like a little smoke with your heat. Plus, you can get their sauce in a convenient gallon size.

    From Ivans post.

    Possible Side Effects **

    Another from Blair, may cause some serious (you guessed it) side effects! At 283,000 scoville units, it is no wonder This sauce has caused people to see the words "free sex" on the bottle of this sauce. A side effect? Maybe. A hot-ass sauce? Definitely!! The only legal hallucinogen I know of! :biggrin:
    One of my favorite snacks was, pickled ginger and chili, with crackers and cheese, but it is not in the shops now :cry:

    Yeah, I think the whole tasting zone thing is out, but apparently they is still research to be done in this field.

    BTW that other "taste" is umami, so wasabi was pretty close, it's described as a rich meaty sensation, more akin to "mouth-feel".
