Yeah, that's what I said about Yahoo! about 15 years ago.

That stuff is almost as good as ketchup.

Doughnut "chef"?

Is this 2013's chipotle?
 
2013-11-22 07:07:43 PM
I've never tried it, so I don't expect this to affect me too much. There are a billion different hot sauces out there. Pick another one until this blows over. Problem solved.

Hot sauce on a donut? WTF is wrong with people?

I've tried rooster sauce; it's alright. It's not Tabasco; but, it isn't bad either.

Sriracha is like black licorice: You either love it, or you hate it, or you think it's "OK."

I don't give a flying fark. There are a thousand different other ways to burn your tastebuds off. Or you could actually learn to appreciate subtlety in flavors.

I like to use Sriracha in recipes but I also use Frank's Red Hot and Tobasco. I do love my I <3 Sriracha apron from The Oatmeal.

It's even better when the two are mixed together, or sriracha + mayo is ridiculously good.

The difference between sriracha and other hot sauces is that many hot sauces alter the flavor of the food you're eating, or add such an excessive amount of heat that the flavor is lost.

Sriracha has pretty much complemented every dish I've ever added it to (when used in moderation). It really is an excellent product.

Sriracha is not a brand, it's a type of Thai sauce. There's plenty of sriracha out there and it will continue that way.

The green cap Red Rooster stuff isn't even the traditional type, just an American product that hit the marketing jackpot. Plus the idiot from The Oatmeal gave it a push with hipstards.

This exactly. I don't really like 'hot sauce' in general except to give a little heat to an overall recipe, but Sriracha (and Franks) both add enough of something different that I like them on a certain selection of things I eat regularly.

Now, the Tobasco sauce I ended up using in the red beans & rice MRE? I only choked it down because the unseasoned version of the meal was sooo much worse.

Or you can go to any Asian market and buy Sriracha from Thailand, Vietnam, Indonesia. Sriracha is a product not a brand name.

I can too; I had a bumper crop of jalapenos two summers ago and I think while processing (slicing) them for canning that I probably emptied my sinuses twice. It's pretty bad when you have to use a towel instead of tissues.

That combination doesn't work for me at all.  I like Sriracha and I like mayo,  It turns out that lots of folks use Sriracha for spicy (fill in the blank) rolls when they're making sushi (which I also like) so I gave it a try.  In a word....blech.

Burn your taste buds off?  That's just adorable.  I mean, come on.  It's not even as hot as Tobasco and they eat that stuff in Iowa for crying out loud.  Sriracha is on the "meh" end of spicy but the flavor is very nice.

SHUT UP. My bottle is in the back of the fridge so people don't catch on how good that is.

Actually, the real reason is if I leave it in the door, someone will open it and they'll never trust me again.

Who needs it? We have something I like a lot more, and I'm supporting a local business that isn't pot.

Indeed.

There are some amazing home made hot sauces in Louisiana. But none will top my granny's extra special hot sauce, ever. She had a whole panoply of sauces that she made herself, from whatever she had.

/ to this day; I think her BBQ sauce would even make radioactive waste taste good.

Tabasco is too vinegary for my taste. Less vinegar and more chili pepper make my taste buds dance with joy.

I tried this a while back, I thought it was less vinegar and more pepper flavor.

It's better than Tabasco, which I like, but I've heard described as tasting like "Old man ball sweat".

Sriracha is about 1000- 2500 scolvilles while original tobasco clocks in between 2500 and 5000.  Or so sayeth Wikipedia. (and it's also readily apparent upon eating Sriracha that, although delicious, it really isn't very hot)

I've seen it, but never tasted it (Crystal, not old man ball sweat).

I can't stand sriracha.  To me, I just taste a mouthful of slightly spicy garlic.

Cholula, FTW.
 
2013-11-22 07:48:53 PM
Tabasco is the Budweiser of spicy condiments.  It's everywhere and it does the job but it's not very good.

IMO, sriracha is great on hotdogs, pastrami sandwiches and in my buffalo wing sauce. There are other applications for it, but it shines in those.
 
2013-11-22 07:50:06 PM
I do a blend of tabasco and cayenne and age the mash for three years in oak barrels. When I was growing up in Louisiana we would mix Crystal and Tabasco. We call it Badassco.

That.  Go to an Asian market sometime and buy the real stuff, kids.

Put Sriracha on a Twinkie, eat it, and your bowels will go back in time.
