Datil Dew Inferno Wings

It’s back to a sauce review on wings today with Datil Dew Inferno Sauce from PepperProducts.com. Don’t let the “Inferno” name scare you. This is Week of Wings 6 – Day 4.

Datil Dew Inferno Sauce #7

We love Datil pepper based sauces here at HotSauceDaily.com. Whether it’s a BBQ sauce, a dry rub, or in this case a sauce that defies description… if it showcases the Datil pepper from St. Augustine Florida, we are all in.

Wanda and Byron Bates have built PepperProducts.com to showcase their many sauces and pickles, all based around the Datil pepper.

The Datil Dew Inferno sauce is:

Ingredients: Tomato paste, corn syrup, vinegar, salt, onion powder, spice and natural flavors, water, brown sugar, red wine vinegar, Datil and habanero peppers, garlic and salt.

A fine tomato base sauce that has the heat to satisfy any pepper head’s palate! Succulent Datil pepper FLAVOR without sacrificing the heat. ~pepperproducts.com

I mentioned earlier to not let the “Inferno” name scare you away – and now I will mention that #7 on the bottle is also a bit over-stated. This sauce is not a 7 out of 10 in heat. I’m not sure why they have a #7 on the label.

Heat Level: Rated 2 out of 5 StarsSpicy, hot, sweet, heat.

We cooked up some wings using our standard bake and deep-fry method (Wings 101). We then tossed them into the Datil Dew Inferno sauce, and for the pretty pictures, we painted on even more sauce!

Final Thoughts

Overall Rating: Rated 4 out of 5 Stars – Delicious and easily a repeat sauce. Great Datil based glaze.

Both Marilyn and I thought this sauce is a great glaze on wings with the sweet and fragrant Datil pepper profile.

  1. Deliciously sweet but not overbearingly so, with a silky texture that was surprising, considering it’s a tomato-based sauce. We both loved these wings!

  2. Thank you for your kind comments, The number 7 is a guy thing, you know how we measure things, sort of like the 4 pound bass that is the bragging weight is 9 pounds. Over the years we have matched the taste buds of the majorities Even the hot heads will still have their death sauces on the shelf for company but empty the Inferno regularly on their own table.
    Thanks again,
    As a final note, we have sold our company to a group out of Detroit that will be operating out of the St. Augustine area with the same recipes we have had for the last 20+ years.
