The thread of Sriracha below, and my response, made me think of a questions that's sort of been on my mind a while. What's a good, tasty hot sauce that's also really hot.
Tabasco to me is too vinegary.
Cholula and Tapatio I really like but they're just not hot enough.
Sriracha is tasty, tasty, but not particularly hot.
Sambal is super salty and hard to use much of.
Dave's insanity has the right heat, but it tastes kind of icky.
For Thai food I tend to use some sambal and then a bunch of thai chiles.
So what are some good, painfully hot sauces that are really tasty?
Oh, and while we're on the topic, anyone read that Mr. Chilehead book yet, the memoir about the pleasure and pain of hot foods?
