This guy knows what's up.The original Dave's Insanity is also pretty good but most of their other sauces are gimmick tier.
Most overrated sauce: sriracha. This is okay for the kind of foods it's traditionally served with but is not the kind of all purpose hipster sauce that can just be put on everything for no reason.
I never quite figured out the Sriracha craze. It's just hot pepper sauce with a bunch of added sugar. At best it's a spicy ketchup.This guy knows what's up.
The original Dave's Insanity Sauce, at a "mere" 150,000 Scoville units, is about as hot as I go, and it's fairly infrequent at this point.Also a lot of the SUPER HOT sauces are more like stunts than they are condiments... no one can seriously be like man i need it to be this hot for it to be good. It's like too much salt on your fries. At a certain point it's too much.
got any opinion on those Korean spicy wings where they use gochujang paste?The original Dave's Insanity Sauce, at a "mere" 150,000 Scoville units, is about as hot as I go, and it's fairly infrequent at this point.
I like some sauces that use the super hot peppers like the Trinidad Scorpion or the Carolina Reaper, but in extreme moderation. The Trinidad Scorpion actually has some mellow, fruity undertones that are completely obliterated if you use enough of it that your taste buds basically give up and can't taste anything but heat. I particularly like the Heartbreaking Dawns 1498 Apricot & Scorpion Pepper sauce. Although it's probably at least 50,000 SUs, it's not overwhelming (at least if you're a pepperhead).
Those nonsensical sauces at millions of SUs are pretty much gimmicks, though. You can seriously get nearly identical results by just spraying literal self defense pepper spray on your food (make sure it has no added toxic ingredients though).
