    Nothing too crazy ...



    I like lots of flavor, not just heat.

    So can you do anything with Dave's Ghost Pepper sauce?

    I havenít tried it yet. It shouldnít be too horribly bad. Iím thinking itís around 650000 scoville. A few drops in a taco salad or chili beans should be fantastic. Iím not a huge fan of the flavor of Ghost Peppers, I think they taste Smokey with a hint of like burning rubber but Iíll give it a shot.

    Itís an odd sauce for sure. I was happy that it didnít burn forever like some of the extremely hot sauces Iíve had in the past.

    The chipotle ketchup from pepper palace is some of the best Iíve ever had. Beats the socks off of any sriracha ketchup Iíve ever tried. (They have their own sriracha ketchup as well)

    Got it!


    My impressions: The Scorpion heat is immediate and sharp, brings out the usual eating-hot-sauce-for-a-while symptoms right from the first drop - snotting and burning awareness of any imperfection on your face is the introduction. And the heat rings out like a bell, very napalm-esque in that you still feel the burning for some time after taking the bite (you get a bonus burn when belching too, so this is probably highly entertaining with beer..) Not much going on in the flavor department, the taste is a uniform dark, bitter red flavor, like a red enchilada sauce. This will probably work best on something you want to retain most of the original flavor of, like a complex chili or piled-high pizza. It won't replace Marie Sharp's for me, but it is a very unique gotta-try addition to the collection..

    Thanks for the review! Kind of disappointed that it doesnít have much of a player. Tobasco is KNOWN for flavor.

    Wow... I thought I could handle hot sauces, but this kicked my tail big-time, so I guess Iím just a wimp.

    And for me, the heat was NOTICEABLE immediately, but it kept building over time until my tongue felt as if I had touched a red-hot poker to it.

    The upshot is that our handy Scoville scale tells us that the numbers for scorpion peppers and defensive pepper spray actually intersect - you can officially tell people you've eaten food as hot as pepper spray.

    you'll work up a tolerance to pretty much anything if you're using it on a somewhat regular basis. heat is also pretty difficult to quantify & there's plenty inconsistency involved. i mentioned using a few drops of scorp per bite on my jersey mike's subs, but in same breath, i've bitten into plain old jalepenos from walmart that damned near choked me.

    The two kinds of peppers I've found that can getcha are jalepenos and padrons. Usually can eat a basket-full, but maybe one or two in there will bite ya

    Itís amazing when you are eating a bag of fresh jalapeŮos and then you get that one that literally is so hot it feels like acid.

    Yeah, I might use a different term than "amazing" though ....

    regular #9 on wheat. sometimes instead of sauce i have them with bunch of mezetta's hot chili peppers; like one per bite. on very rare occassion will get a #17, but only eat them with mezetta hot jalepeno slices, alot of them. you can see pattern forming, rofl...

    Yeah, I only ever do a club there, never tried it with hot sauce though, will have to try that..

    For sometime now these three have been my go-to choices for flavor. I'm not a fan of HOT. I like mixing the horseradish with a variety of condaments. e.g. with Ketchup for French fries, with tartar for salmon, with mayonase on sanwiches..... Mixing brings the flavor sans the heat.

    Never point a flashlight at anything you don't intend to illuminate! Never buy a flashlight you have to make payments on.

    tabasco brand scorp sauce is getting way too expensive to order. just placed an order for dave's version scorp sauce that should arrive this weekend. will post follow up...

  24. #84

    Default Re: The Official CPF Hot Sauce Thread!



    imo, heat's about on par with tabasco's version. dave's bottle doesn't have a control spout so it's essentially wanting to pour out like ketchup (think thick, blotchy drops), which may be a no go for novices. maybe just a wee bit more flavor...

    Dave himself rates his Scorpion as third hottest, bested by Ghost at #2 and Ultimate Insanity at the top. And as noted above, he sells jars of whole Ghost peppers..

    It was the first truly hot sauce I had ever eaten. You can taste a drop in 2 pounds of chili. Daveís insanity sauces were the first sauces to feature pure capsaicin, itís his claim to fame

    He rates the Ghost jar as high as Ultimate, because there's obviously no way to dilute it; it'd be an interesting experiment but I'm not sure how you'd use it..
