This sauce is great over bbq and other heavy flavors, but it's too runny to be a favorite or a staple. Heat is great at a mild-medium (4.5/10 Hot Ones scale), just wish It was thicker. Tried it over pizza and it was a mess. Make sure you have utensils and it's a great flavor burst. Other than the runniness it's fantastic, would be 5 stars if it was thicker
This sauce has excellent flavor but doesn’t fry your taste buds in heat so I can still taste it! I was a little disappointed that the batch I received was runnier than a prior batch. I prefer the thicker consistency.
Excellent hot sauce!! I am a wimp when it comes to hot sauce. I mean, I can get by, but have a bit of a weak palate for heat. I like Tobasco sauce but find it can get too spicy for me... to the point I can't enjoy the food I put it on because of the heat. THIS hot sauce, the smoked jalepeno, is terrific!! It still has the heat and spice but without burning your mouth so you can still savor whatever food you put it on. It reminds me of a very spicy BBQ sauce but not as sweet and heavy and with just the right heat that lets you know its there, but knows when to give up.
I gift this hot sauce to people. I always include a spiel about how risky it is admitting you like hot sauce, because folks subsequently encounter random hot sauces in the world and buy them for you, which is terrible, because random hot sauces are likely to be mediocre, and then sit in your cabinet for years until your kids throw them away after looking in disgust at the expiry. Knowing all this, I choose to make a gift of this hot sauce anyway, and often. Hopefully that tells you something.
We love the Smoked Jalapeno Hot Sauce. I ordered extra so I could give some to my sons. The Taco Sauce is good too a little too spicy for me but the family loves it.
