How to make a wang do the dang-doodle

Regular readers of this blog are well aware of the fact that I put hot sauce on practically everything I eat. (Mr. Jimmy can testify that he once watched as I put hot sauce on a honey bun, and ate it.)

I have, at last count, some 25 different bottles of hot sauce in my kitchen. I have a bottle of each flavor of Tabasco®; I have 2 big-ass bottles of Trappey's (my very favorite hot sauce); and I have a half-gallon jug of Texas Pete® from which I sometimes swig like I'm drinkin' water or chocolate milk.

What you won't find in my kitchen are bottles of Bruce Foods' Louisiana Hot Sauce. I've never been a big fan of Louisiana Hot Sauce for one important reason: it's just too freakin' salty for my taste.

Yesterday, a friend gave me a bottle of Louisiana Wing Sauce. I didn't say anything, but I was really expecting to dislike the sauce my buddy so graciously gifted to me.

Since I had some leftover fried chicken in my frig, I decided to give the wing sauce a whirl tonight. Boy was I surprised. It had a zippy flavor, was full of heat, and didn't taste like it was equal parts salt and pepper sauce.

Sometime next week, I'm gonna fry up some chicken wings so I can taste my new sauce on just-cooked chicken. I'll let you know how it turns out.

I think my favorite hot sauce is Valentina. You can get it in a lot of Mexican restaurants. I found a big bottle of it at a Mexican grocery.

I'm still waiting for your verdict on Dave's Gourmet Insanity Sauce.
On the label it says, ". . .also, strips waxed floors and removes driveway grease stains."

The Warning: Use this product one drop at a time. Keep away from eyes, pets and children. Not for people with heart/respiratory problems.

It is tasty. Should you choose to experiment make sure you have some milk and beer around, 'cause if you overdo it, you'll need it!

Funny you should mention Dave's, Mister Jimmy. A co-worker recently gave me a bottle of Dave's, which I tried in front of him and nine other co-workers. I keep forgetting to bring the bottle home so's I can snap a picture and write a review. I'll be doing so within the week ... stay tuned.
