    Franks Hot Sauce

    I purchased a bottle of the Franks "Xtra Hot" sauce yesterday, and I've never had such a let down in my life! I am a man who you could describe as a chili head, I love all things spicy. I thought I finally found a sauce that could match what I had in mind for a good sauce, and to my surprise, it was somewhat tame (although it was very tasty, cannot fault that!). I wish they make an extreme version.

    Tasting as it does and as it is agreeable to you there is the option of you customizing the sauce yourself...

    I'm quite a wimp with hot stuff and I find that sauce pretty easy to take I have it on my cheese on toast!

    yeah, but thing is, I grow my own chilis (naga/bhut jolokia/ghost chilis) as well and make my own, but it does get tedious making your own all the time. Would be nice to have one that I didn't make myself and still meet expectations.

    I used to grow my own Scotch Bonnet (until a builder dropped a pile of bricks on my plants) but that list is pretty hard core

    @Oaktech As it goes, yes I have

    However the only one that was too much for me was the Pure Cap as it is pure capsaicin with vegetable oil (so nothing but heat which gets exponentially hotter the more you have)

    This is what you want for a kick! And I'm not just advertising it because we share a name!

    I remember it being suitably mind-blowing...

    The Orange Buffalo - New York Style Buffalo Wings

    You can buy their sauces somewhere online, I think. If not they do them at the truck for like £8.

    Have fun.

    +1 for Dave's - my son, who happily sat in lectures at Uni with a jar of jalapeno's and a fork, can only take a drop or two on his food.

    I've got some stuff at home that my Mum brought back from Mexico, I'll have a look at that when I get home. I can only stand a few drops of that, It's a habanero/scotch bonnet blend.
