Can you handle the heat? Try all three of our hot sauces ranging from mild to hot!
Grunt Green: We discovered almost by accident that green cayenne peppers picked just before they turn red can bring a truly unique, tangy, earthy flavor; still carries the same fresh flavor as Dead Red, and that same rich concentration of all-natural cayenne peppers. Much of the harvesting of the green peppers happens at the end of a growing season, when these mature, perfectly balanced (but somewhat stubborn) peppers just decide to stay green; as such, we usually age these peppers a bit longer. A "late heat" that won't jump out at you right away, very popular at the breakfast table, the perfect balance of flavor and heat, still brings a solid heat (1-10) of 5-6, some vintages run a touch hotter during hot, dry summers.
Shock & Awe: Not for the faint of heart, this sauce was a special request from our beloved heat freak fans that we have since opened up to the rest of the universe. Made with almost 90% Louisiana-grown orange habaneros (we liked that flavor the best from all our testing), you'll get a unique punch of deep, powerful, sustained heat that is offset by a sweet aroma and taste. Many of our fans will use this sauce to "spike" Dead Red when making wings, it checks in (1-10) around an 8.5-9, according to most folks. So as not to distract from that sweet-heat combination, we add a touch less salt so that the true flavor of the habanero pepper really pops in the sauce. You can set your watch by the habanero pepper—it delivers a fairly consistent heat and flavor even in varying conditions.
Dead Red: Our classic signature product. Made from Louisiana-grown, fully ripe red cayenne peppers hand-picked at exactly that right time, and then salted down and aged until the mash is perfect for conversion and bottling. An all-natural product that is almost 90% cayenne peppers, this sauce packs a truly authentic, fresh cayenne flavor that will be very different when compared to other sauces that typically have a stronger concentration of vinegar. Depending upon each growing season's weather patterns, heat (1-10) will range between 6-7. This sauce won't melt your brain, but depending upon your palate, you may need to reach for a cold beverage.
Maple Mayhem: This all-natural, habanero-infused maple syrup, the perfect balance of sweet and heat, is made from the highest quality ingredients. There are no preservatives, chemicals, or thickeners of any kind. Use your imagination with Maple Mayhem: maple-glazed salmon, chicken and waffles, grilled brussels sprouts, or caramelized pork chops; the possibilities are endless.
