Moe Mountain Hot Sauce Review

Moe Mountain Ghost Pepper Hot Sauce

Moe Mountain Hot Sauce is a tomato based Ghost Pepper sauce from Martin Olsen, and his slogan is “it’s kinda hot”.

Let’s see if it really is.

It’s also one of the newest hot sauces to come to market. Made with a blend of natural ingredients like apple cider vinegar, cumin and cocoa powder, and coupled with the famous Bhut Jolokia Pepper (Ghost Pepper), Moe Mountain Hot Sauce brings its own unique flavor to the hot sauce world.

The Details

Ingredients: tomato puree (water, tomato sauce), apple cider vinegar, modified food starch, salt, cocoa powder, garlic, fresh lemon pulp, ghost peppers, spices (cumin).

Flavor: Rated 4 out of 5 Stars – Dark, spicy and just slightly hot. This is a kicked up Mexican style sauce with ghost pepper heat. Surprising.

Heat: Rated 2.5 out of 5 Stars – Just about in the middle… the heat burns off quickly leaving the rest of the flavors to linger. Wild n mild.

Texture and appearance: Thick and smooth. The dark color is flecked with bits of spices. Classic.

I would also like to point out that Moe Mountain Hot Sauce is packaged in a 5 ounce bottle (woozie) with a wide mouth. This makes it very easy to pour the sauce out.

On food

We tried Moe Mountain on tacos and pizza for this review.

It was delicious on pizza.

But it excelled on tacos. This is a fiery taco sauce that is thick and rich.

Final thoughts

This is a great entry-level Bhut Jolokia (Ghost Pepper) sauce.

Coupled with some spices that include cumin, it would also be great splashed onto a bowl of chili. Don’t forget the onions and cheddar cheese.

Overall Rating: Rated 4 out of 5 Stars – Big, bold and delicious! Versatile as a medium-thick sauce on all foods that can stand up to a big flavor. Winner.

Angelfire Bhut Jolokia Buffalo Wing Sauce Review

We love Crazy Uncle Jester’s sauces, and this Angelfire Bhut Jolokia Buffalo Wing Sauce didn’t disappoint. It combines the tang of a true buffalo wing sauce with a southern bayou flavor along with the heat of the Bhut Jolokia pepper.

Bright orange in color and of a medium thick consistency, this sauce first hits you with the zing of vinegar, then a hint of cayenne brings on the bayou flavor followed by the Bhut Jolokia heat at the end.

I thought it was not hot enough, considering that the Jolokia pepper is way up on the heat scale, but the pepper is listed last in the ingredients and so there is just a hint of its power and flavor. Marilyn loved it just as it is, and she thought the heat level was just right. That’s good for marketing and the masses, but I’d like it hotter.

Jeff Stevenson of Crazy Uncle Jester’s told me, “If you want to kick up the heat in the Angelfire Wing Sauce, add some of our Louisiana Firestorm (habaneros, serranos, jalapenos) for a bit of heat, or some of our Spontaneous Combustion (habs, serranos, jalapenos, capsicum) for a lot of heat.” Okay Jeff, next time I will try adding those for a hotter Angelfire.

We cooked some wings on the grill, seasoned only with kosher salt and fresh black pepper…

… then tossed them in the Angelfire sauce. With the oils and soy ingredients, there is no need to add butter – just use it straight out of the bottle (a large 14 ounces).

Ingredients: aged cayenne peppers, chiles, vinegar, soy oil, hydrogenated soy oil, soy lecithin, water, salt, garlic, natural flavor, spices, citric acid, bhut jolokia

Overall score: 3 out of 5
