Cap’n Bones and his crew of chileheads have a great hot sauce blog going on at tastethefear.com .
These guys are serious about their love for hot sauce, and it shows in their reviews.
They write a lot of what they call “Multi Reviews”, where 3 or 4 members write their reviews on a given hot sauce in the same post. It’s very interesting to read the different takes on the same product. Or should I say “see” the different reations… as in their videos.
A great example is a recent review of Habanero Punch and Habanero Punch TKO. Written by the Three Amigos, Justin, Troy (aka General Lee), and Parker, they each included a video of their review. These guys are really into ingesting a spoonfull of hotsauce (in this case, the extract version) and filming their reactions. That is way off the chart for me! Check out Justin doing a spoonful of Habanero Punch TKO back in July – he chases it with Tequila! Me, I prefer dairy products.
But you can see how each member discusses their likes and dislikes for a given sauce. Nice way to round out the reviews, guys. Just try watching Justin and not want to run to your ‘fridge to spoon a glob of an extract sauce into your mouth! (I prefer the Mad Dog Inferno products, but again, a whole spoonful is not for me.)
Then there’s Buddah. This guy is their lead reviewer and he gets around. He’s even responsible for reviews that the other guys write about. I had the great pleasure to meet Al , er, Buddah at a recent food show in DC. What a great chilehead.
Buddah recently headed up the review for Zane & Zack’s 4 Brothers Hot Pepper Sauce – Smokey Garlic Habanero. Check out his great photos, as he tastes and reviews this sauce. You can actually see the bottle in each shot as it disappears with each food he pours it on. Pretty cool. Along with himself, Justin and Hudd weighed in with their thoughts too.
Finally, Cap’n Bones and this bunch have a really cool monthly feature called The No Fear Zone. This is where the guys can post/say/talk about *anything* they want… and they do. Lots of off-topic conversations from chileheads to chileheads.
All in all, a very comprehensive and fun blog about hot sauces! Visit Cap’n Bones and his crew and tell ’em Brian from HotSauceDaily.com sent you!
