So there used to be this awesome specialty store called Taste on the Danforth here in Toronto where I had access to all kinds of crazy hot sauces.

Sadly it shut down. The last time I was in there, they told me they'd be relocating and to leave my e-mail address for any updates. That was a little less a than year ago and I've heard nothing since.

I'm also almost completely out of the last stuff i bought -- CaJohns Killer Chipotle Hot Sauce. Side note: this stuff kicks so much ass. Goes with everything. Eggs, stir frys, seafood, chicken, steak, chili, pizza (holy fuck does it go awesomely on pizza)

I may end up ordering the CaJohns again, but I'm open to trying anything the OG recommends. I'm looking for something hot that doesn't sacrifice flavour.

No one has a recommendation?

Like I said, looking for something hot with a killer flavour.

Unfortunately most good-tasting hot sauces hit like Michael Bisping pedalling backwards on a unicycle.

princeofdecals - make your own


This!

I have been experimenting and nailed a few. Really easy and once you get a base down, you can mess with other combinations without too much effort.

Interesting... never tried making my own before, but it sounds fun.

Start with this as a base, then experiment. Make sure you use glass or non-reactive pan.

So far I have made about 10 batches, each a bit of experimenting. I have subbed the water for OJ, used different types of peppers, added fruit etc. All come out good, some great.

I would add the vinegar slowly and taste as you go to make sure the vinegar is not overpowering.

Awesome; thanks! I'll try and give this a shot on the weekend.

I like the Tabasco Habenero sauce. It has a good deep hebenero flavor with some heat.

If you want pure heat, Dave's Insanity Sauce is up there. A few drops in a big pot of chili adds a lot of heat. The flavor is pretty non-existent with large recipes. It doesn't really taste that great anyway.
