  • If you're ever in the area be sure to visit the factory where it's made.  The tour is OK, but it's on this huge patch of land that's pretty much an open air zoo.
  • Goodby hot sauce pushing man!
  • I'll dab some on my sammy tonight. Rest in pieces, sir.
  • Well darn, I guess I'll have to make a bloody mary tonight in his honor.  Godspeed sir, your product has rescued countless diner breakfasts from flavorless mediocrity.

    I ate cold leftover pizza with Tabasco this morning so I'm getting a kick out your reply.

    RIP Mr. McIlhenny

    You shouldn't make fun of southerners like that.  It's rude.

    RIP, hero-of-tastebuds man.
  • I prefer Crystal's and Louisiana. Louisiana works ridiculously well on a shrimp po-boy fully dressed.

    But yea, Tabasco is good in a pinch.

    I mix Crystal Extra Hot with Tapatío to make sauce for chicken wings. If I've never heard of or tried a hot sauce, I'll grab it. If I like it, I keep it on hand. Crystal is one of several spicy condiments that I keep on hand. Tapatío was mostly a Los Angeles thing but is available pretty much everywhere now, I think. I grew up with that stuff so it holds a special place in my heart condiment refrigerator.

    Heh.  I never used to put hot sauce on pizza until I lived in South Korea.  Which is a bit odd, I suppose, since most places in the USA offer red pepper to put on pizza to begin with, so it's not a stretch anyway.  But for whatever reason it never occurred to me until I saw what Koreans did to pizza.

    Of course, they also do insane things with pickles and sweet potatoes and pizza, but never mind that.

    Tapatío

     wasn't hard to find in the South a decade ago.  It's not really new here.
  • When I was ready to ship out to boot camp in '83, my buddy Ken's dad told me to take a bottle in my shaving kit. I went in while they still issued Cs and the first incarnation of the MRE. That stuff saved the day more than once.

    RIP Mr. Mcilhenny
  • Touch of vinegar?  If it was just a touch it'd be grainy from all the peppers and salt.

    My favorite is the jalapeno green sauce, followed closely by the chipotle.  If you do go visit the factory.  I recommend buying their charcoal if they're still selling it.  They chop up the barrels they use to cure the sauce.  It made some good ribs, but then maybe it was more cook than coals.
  • Mr. McIlhenny, your sauce has been a companion to me since I was six years old, it has helped me through some bad meals and made some good meals better.

    Thank you

    Heart attack, according to WWL.com. It's pretty common in south Louisiana. My dad's cardiologist told us that Cajuns have an elevated risk due to some genetic factor, plus we eat a lot of fried crap. Oh, and he has a new cardiologist now, the old one died of heart disease. Oy.

    +1 on the green stuff. It doesn't give my 40 year old body heartburn like the original does now. The tour is awesome, the smell of vinegar reminds me of a darkroom, and a guy I went to high school with is the Avery Island historian.
  • I love spice, but I can't stand Tabasco.  To me, it just tastes like drinking a mouthful of vinegar.

    Unfortunately, it's been my experience that that seems to be the status quo for hot sauces available in the US.
