    I was going to add Clancy's to this list as well. We had it at a diner in Ann Arbor last fall and bought a bottle home with us. We like how it's so smoky and has a nice kick to it.

    Amazon.com sells gallons of tabasco delivered to your door.

    Deesher inspires me to ask where one might find a rehoboam of Tabasco.

    Well, it may not be the ideal source, but Amazon carries it and you could always order some to fill out the box when you order your rotary evaporator for home use. :roll:


    P.S. Don't forget to notice the rather, um, significant shipping charge, which exceeds the price of the hot sauce by several dollars.

    Thanks for the tip. I had been seeking a source for my El Yucateco Kutbil-ik de & Jalapena fix, and this place fits the bill. Cheers!

    You should be able to find it along Randolph in one of the restaurant supply stores. If not there, find someone who has a Restaurant Depot card...

    Where do you get your Marie Sharp's? I have found it at Fresh Foods in Niles, but have never seen the flavors you describe. It's been one of my favorites, ever since my aunt brought back some from Belize.

    The Rogers Park Fruit Market currently has several flavors of Marie Sharps' (pricklypear habanero, grapefuit habanero, scotch bonnet, Belizean Hot etc). They also had one I have never seen before simply called "Beware". IIRC, the label has "Comatose Hot" printed on it. Unfortunately, I had left my wallet at home, so I couldn't buy a bottle, but the next time I am there...

    Well, here it is as promised, a picture of Marie Sharp's latest hotsauce flavor. Although it DID NOT induce a coma as promised, it was pretty darned hot. Definitely one for the scoville extremists to try. Despite its instensity, it still had that wonderful habanero flavor.

    8 years later and the kutbil-ik is in my cart with no shipping charge. Excited to try this one.
    Like most of you, we have an array (in fridge) including Tabasco (several varieties) and Valentina (Regular and Extra Hot). These we must have, the others, like Cholula, we might have.

    My favorite hot sauce at the moment is from Benjyhuda Street food (various locations around town). Unfortunately, he isn't into bottling it (yet?) - but if you're ever near an outpost, it's a must try! Little sweet, little tart and a really decent kick.

    My standby for the last four years has been Yellowbird's habanero and serrano offerings. Secret Aardvark is another one that has been a standby, for kind of an infusion of Tex-Mex hot sauce and Carribean. Take a nice Carribean habanero/Scotch bonnet-based hot sauce, and give it a bit of a cumin kick and you've got the idea of this sauce. I also do a little hot sauce exchange with a friend out in California, and was earlier this year introduced to Salsa Cosecha's fantastic products, but they don't appear to be available on Amazon anymore. The green was my favorite.

    But, of the bunch, it's Yellowbird's line that has become my default hot sauce condiment of choice. (But of course, it depends on what I'm eating.)

    Each fall I make my own. I get all the ingredients from a few farmers at the Waukesha Farm Market. This year ten types of red and orange peppers, varying levels of heat. I add ample garlic and carrots into the process. Made 33 bottles this year and will hand out to friends. Gave a bottle to my main pepper supplier, he loved it. It is good stuff and what stands out is the freshness of it. Hit it on all cylinders this year. Not usually a phone freak unless it is work related so don't know how to put a picture on here from my iphone. If someone can private message me the instructions I will put a few pictures of this concoction on here. Thanks.

    I definitely vary my sauce based on what I'm eating but my big go-to for the past year or so has been Soothsayer's Domesplitter. It's seasonal due to fresnos, but grab it if you see it. They sell at craft fairs and Dante's Pizza.

    I don't have a picture hosting Service, so forgive me for no picture!
    I have lately been using a Hot Sauce that comes in a 8.5oz bottle named San Pedro with Piquin Peppers. they also make a Jalapeño version and sell some bottled Piquin Peppers also.
    El Rey in Milwaukee was my source but the Jalapeño is gone and now the Piquin is no longer on the shelves. There may have been a Habanero version also.
    The website WWW. salsasanpedro.com.mx does not come up?
    Somewhat like Cholula regular, a Piqin and Arbol blend but with a unique profile and just the right amount of heat.
    Amazon and eBay prices are outrageous so I need another local source.

    I was able to get to the website by leaving out the www part, i.e., http://salsassanpedro.com.mx/. I also see some pricey offerings on Amazon. Better to find it in a store if possible. I'll keep an eye out at the Mexican market near me.

    With Binko on Secret Aardvark, a recent find for me, love this line including the not-a-hotsauce; black bean sauce. Valentina is a goto as are the Tabascos(these are probably more heritage for me), I visited the factory on Avery island as a child. Then I love El Yucateco, esp. the Kutbil Ik. And, the various home kitchen habanero salsas of the Caribbean which skew to the sweeter side of life with inclusions of root vegetables. Addendum: the store I monger with carries Secret Aaardvark, one of the only places on the island, apparently. It is yummy!

    We always have a Yellowbird Habanero as one of the open half dozen or so in the fridge. Love it.

    While we don't consider it 'hot', we also always have Co-op Poblano for it's great flavor.

    Will have to look for Secret Aardvark.
