Ass in Space was basically souped up Tabasco Sauce. In other words, it sucked!!!! I have nothing more to say about this lame excuse for a “hot” sauce….
Sounds like the name of an adult film.
I have to admit, that’s the first thing I thought of when I saw the “Ass in the Tub” label on another bottle.
I wonder if you have tried ‘Pain is Good’, Jamaican style? Probably not your style, since it has other stuff mixed in with the Habaneros. I once had a jar of homemade hot sauce from Granada that had a wonderful smell, and, I assume, a wonderful flavor. Unfortunately it was sooo hot that you couldn’t put enough in anything to actually taste the flavor. Pain is Good seemed like a milder version, not so hot that you can’t taste it. I went through a bottle in nothing flat, but my supermarket no longer carries it. They make a half-dozen varieties, perhaps one would be to your taste. I am thinking of placing a large order online. rb
Hmmmmm….Tabasco has a good helping of vinegar, whereas this stuff appears to be based in oil. If you search hotsauce.com by “heat”, it’s supposed to fall in the “extreme” category. Oh well.
Over here in Thailand, a lot of the sauces are based in fish sauce. Tamarinds make them pasty. Dried shrimp and/or fermented fish makes them even more fishy. Quite different than the general formulas you see at hotsauce.com .
My advice is to use “da bomb” to make your own hot sauce.
The stuff is basically pure capsaicin, you can go beyond habanero if you want.
So are you saying “Ass in Space”, sucked ass?!
Have you tried zhug? I love it. But maybe not hot enough for you.
