Refrigerate After Opening:
Three Words I Hate

Refrigerate After Opening – three words I hate to see on bottles of sauces. Really? Have you seen my ‘fridge photos?
I just don’t have the room in there with all the pickles, mustards, and BBQ concoctions.

And that photo is AFTER cleaning out the ‘fridge door!

I much prefer the sauces that live happily on counters, tables, and any other flat, open surface areas around our house. Those guys are Troopers. “We don’t need no stinkin’ refrigerators“!

We recently cooked up a bunch of wings (about 56 wings), and dunked them in a variety of sauces. More on the other sauces later… One sauce that stood out was Hell’s Passion from CinChili.com.

Louisiana Gold Pepper Sauce – Hot Sauce Review

New Premium Hot Sauces from Louisiana Brand

We all know the familiar bottle with the Red Dot saying “One Drop Does It”® on the Original Louisiana Brand Hot Sauce – your basic cayenne pepper, vinegar and salt hot sauce.

They’ve recently launched a line of premium sauces called “Louisiana Gold“. And the big news is they’ve blended their peppers with Tabasco peppers and “spirit vinegar” to create a bold new taste. The term ‘spirit vinegar’ is sometimes reserved for the stronger variety (5% to 20% acetic acid) made from sugar cane or from chemically produced acetic acid – source: Wikipedia There is a sweetness in the Red Pepper Sauce that I feel makes it much better than the original.

I ordered the 4 pack gift set

This set consists of the Red Pepper Sauce, and a Green Pepper sauce both blended with Tabasco peppers, as well as their new Wasabi Pepper Sauce and their Horseradish Pepper Sauce. More on those flavors in another post. But this 4 pack comes in a beautiful, award-winning box. I went straight for the Red Pepper Sauce first.

I’ve never been a big fan of Louisiana style sauces. To me they all taste about the same – salty with mild heat. But this new Gold Pepper Sauce is so much richer tasting that I’ve become a fan of it after the first taste. It’s still a bit salty, and the heat level is slightly higher (than Original) with the addition of the Tabasco peppers, but there’s a hint of sweetness to it. Probably from the spirit vinegar.

We made some hot wings using the Louisiana Gold Red Pepper Sauce with a little butter, and they turned out very tasty!
While I can’t honestly say this would be my go-to-everyday hot sauce… I will use it whenever I want an authentic Louisiana-style sauce. I can’t wait to crack open the other 3 bottles and tell you all about them as well.

Review of Chok’On Dis Blaz’n Glaze

Chok’On Dis Blaz’n Glaze

Chok'on Dis Blaz'n Glaze

Chok’On Dis Blaz’n Glaze sauce from Bisummo.com is another creation from Todd “King of Sting” Ross from Orlando, Florida. His Blaz’n Glaze is sold and marketed as a marinade or finishing sauce. Next time we cook with this sauce, we’ll go the whole marinading route.
But for now, we simply brushed some on chicken wings and grilled ’em up for the bbq effect.

Ingredients:peaches, brown sugar, water, vinegar, molasses, habanero mash (habanero peppers, vinegar, salt), salt, chili powder, cumin, black pepper, ginger, coriander, allspice, xanthan gum.

Label & Packaging:
There is a line drawing graphic of a screaming face. But the colors are… well, black and white. A bit too plain for me. I think it’s time Bisummo upgraded the label for what is a very good sauce. It gets a “2 peppers” for design.
