Actually anything Hot! I made some experimental stuff the other day. I took some store bought barbecue sauce. Mixed in some tabasco, crushed red peppers (pizza topping) and topped it all off with some honey and a dash of soy sauce. Spicy hot (Peppers/tabasco), sweet (3 teaspoons of honey) and salty (dash or so of soy sauce) and tangy (store bought BBQ sauce). Hits all the good tastebud senses for me. I used it on a couple of corndogs the other day. Breathing Fire.... :twisted:

Also have as many as 6 Jalapeño plants, 1 habanero plant in the back yard.

Big fan of the hot and spicey myself.

I use to have a large garden and Annaheims, Jalapenos, Hungarian Wax, and cherry peppers are real high yield where I live. So I both putter around the kitchen and I'm frugal...OK cheap if you believe most of those I've cohabited with...so I'm not wasting that big end harvest.

So while I'm a fan of BBQ and Hot sauce...I've always thought both could have a better flavor profile...mostly less sweet and less vinegar, more depth of flavor.

So I'm roasting peppers off for Colorado chilli and it gives us a spark of an idea- why not roast of a variety of chillies, manipulate the heat via variety and/or amount of seeds and membrane left as a base for a hot/BBQ sauce? And for depth of flavor why not add some caramelized onion, roasted garlic, even a small amount of diced carrot and/or raw sweet onion, add a little bit of water,bring it to a boil, tilt the pot and hit it with the immersion blender until it's as smooth as desired?

It turns out I love the stuff...I use it as base for everything from BBQ sauce where you can add salt, tomato paste, adobe, worcestershire, ketchup, etc, thin to desired. Hot sauce add white or cider vinegar, lil tomato paste, lil anchovy paste, water depending on vinegar. Homemade salsa, eliminate blender add diced tomato...or add roasted tomatillo prior to hitting with blender.

You can come up with a bunch of variations based on the variety of chillis you use...can even reconstitute some of the exotic dried peppers and add them prior to blending...cilantro and a touch of oregano work well in salsas...I've cooked off the base with a lil sourmash, tomato paste, brown sugar and rosemary for a pretty damn good bbq sauce...you can mess around quite a bit...I always refrigerate though.

For pain and burn I will use Dave's Insanity Sauce (recommended 1-tsp per gallon of chili for heat) or Colon Blow that shit is hot.

For flavor I can essentially drink it is Cholula and all of its flavors chili lime, garlic, and the chipotle. The chipotle is good on about anything I love adding it to soup or sandwiches. Crystal hot sauce is a good basic flavor enhancer. I used to work at a bar that sold hot sauces and have tried a stupid amount over the years.

Pickapeppa sauce is also very good with a rich flavor from Jamaica and tastes great on a cold cut sandwich. turkey or beef being ideal. also works with seafood.

I also like to add a little Old Bay to hot sauce or Cajun spice to hot sauce for a little change up in flavor profile.

Tronic would have loved this thread. I believe he used to talk regularly about the variety of hot peppers he grew.

I do like the Jamaican ones also, Pickapeppa is pretty nice.

What I love are the Jamaican Jerk sauces. The heat from Jamaican food comes from Scotch Bonnet peppers, which are essentially Habaneros. There are different types of Jamaican Jerk you can end up with, so be careful:

1) a bunch of spices in oil, this is sometimes on jerk wings, it sucks, mostly
2) a brown sauce with good spice and flavor, this is great on wings or putting on anything else. This is what BW3 and other wing places use, and it rocks.
3) a jerk seasoning. This is used for cooking, not as a topping, it has chunks of peppers and spices.
4) a jerk marinading. Obvious uses.

Walkerswood makes some great jerk stuff.

I stopped fucking around with retard levels of heat a while ago. I enjoy flavor over burn.
Srirachi I will use almost like ketchup, great on everything.

What I also recommend, is cheap ass Jalapeno green sauce and Chipotle sauce. As in the Tabasco green (and tons of clones).

Down here in Texas we get the Cholula sauce line. Their red is a good red better then generic tabasco/louisiana/red hot sauce, it has more character.

I havent tried their chili ones, but as recommended before a Chipotle sauce is a wonderful thing.
Chipotle is smoked Jalapeno, it is one of the best flavors on earth. Awesome in food, and dark beers.
Likewise an Ancho is a smoked Poblano. Another great one to cook with is a Guajillo.

Here is some more info:

And something else to check out if you have a oriental foodstore. Thai peppers. Very nice heat in a small package. A friend of mind turned me on to a lovely flavored oil. Take a 1/4 cup of olive oil, thinly slice up 4+ thai peppers, add seeds and all in a glass jar and store in fridge. You will have a flavored oil ready to go. Now use that oil instead of butter for your eggs in the morning.

To play off what Slobber said about Habaneros...if you remove the membrane, seeds, and mince it's an acceptable level of heat with a smokey, citrus flavor profile...add just one of those little bastards whole to a big pot of of chilli and most people are only eating a spoonful.

I'm also a fan of chipotle...the Mexican brands of adobo is basically chipotle minus the actual jalapenos.

And I agree that the dried Poblanos and Guajillos really add depth of flavor...without cranking up the heat...more licorice and smoke. Generally the dried peppers have a heat rating on the label--- def pay attention.
