    There is only one hot sauce I believe is truly burning hot, all the others just have a bunch of hype. I bought it from a hot-sauce shop in SE DC called Uncle Brutha’s on Uncle Brutha’s recommendation for pure heat. It’s called Predator Hot Sauce and it’s really smoking. For taste I’d recommend one of his two sauces or Ace hot sauce, which is still pretty hot. You can buy them from his store online, but I can’t make it link directly to the predator, sorry.

    And yes, it really is that hot. All those other store brands are a total joke, it’s like they’re afraid of being sued if they burn someone’s tongue. Uncle Brutha, on the other hand, is awesome, and sells some damn fine hot sauces. I also recommend Momma Africa’s peri-peri for perfect taste plus fair heat, it’s wonderful.

    I’ve become quite partial to the generic Vietnamese chilli sauce that you get in V restaurants and delis. It’s not extra strong, but it’s about 30 per cent garlic (french colonialism maybe?), so it tends to go with more types of food.

    Wouldn’t it be easier just to grow some habaneros yourself? It’s not that hard, you get great quality, and you can make the sauce however you like it.
