    Not so much a hot sauce as a vinegar mild spiced sauce

    • +23 votes

      Sure, but it's a key ingredient (mixed 1:1 with melted butter) for hot wing sauce, which I feel like is the main use case

        Came to say this, I love my Siracha, but this is the hot sauce for any meat basting

        Try a tablespoon of honey as well, especially if you are adding superhot flakes and pairing it with a bluecheese ranch. Omfg. Dead.

          my blend is franks, siracha, butter for the hot sauce (warmed over a pan)

          flour, onion salt, garlic salt, celery salt, cajun pepper, himilayan salt in a bag to coat the wings

          blue cheese (endeavour blue), sour cream, lots of garlic for the dipping sauce

        I use it as a poor sustitute for Tapatio because my local Woolies stopped stocking that :(

      Agreed, pretty disappointed when I first tried this sauce

      Agree about the vinegar, a little overpowering

    •  

      It is quite mild, but it's still a tasty hot sauce imo. I'd rather splash a copious amount of Frank's on some fried eggs than a couple of drops of palette wrecking insano-sauce. I love hot food and have a high chilli tolerance, but I still dig Frank's.

        How do you handle the 2x spicy noodles

        •  

          Those Korean noodles with the crazy chicken on the pack? I tried them a while back, and they're hot alright. Whenever I ate a pack I had to take a little break or two before finishing them. I'd definitely classify those as hot.

          •  

            @Fappo: Samyang reds I'm feeling the sensations on 3rd mouthful but can finish it fine.
            It's more enjoyable with half packet, but I can unload the whole packet again if I need to impress a girl or torture myself

            •  

              @FAST and Curious: Yeah I think the black pack ones were a bit more enjoyable. I do like eating something silly hot like the red pack noodles occasionally though.

              •  

                @Fappo: Blacks were walk in a park. I'm talking about the red packs :D I bought a bunch of them so for normal consumption would only pour in half a packet of the sauce.
                I put the whole thing first time and need ripe banana and milk afterwards

                  @FAST and Curious: I knew milk was good for cooling down chilli burn, but had never heard of using ripe banana. I can imagine it could work quite well. I'll have to keep that in mind!

    I wish I could upvote this twice. Really good value for a small quantity - only $1.01 per 100ml, compared to buying this https://usafoods.com.au/products/franks-redhot-sauce?variant... which is $0.92 per 100ml.

    Damn, we need this price for Tobasco! The condiment of the Gods! TOBASCO is love, tobasco is life.

    • +8 votes

      This stuff is much better than Tobasco.

      • +3 votes

        Pretty much most sauces are better than Tabasco. Even Nandos.

        • +2 votes

          I'll pay that. Tobasco is pretty rancid. Crystal or Louisiana are both miles better for a comparative product.

          All irrelevant anyway since Franks is more something you use as an ingredient while cooking as opposed to the sauces above which are generally applied to cooked food (eg: fried chicken).

      I was gonna say Frank's tops tobasco sauce by a long shot.

      Had them both side by side and Frank's just seemed less watered down

      tabasco is good, but I won't call it condiment of the Gods…

    Just curious though if anyone here tried to make hot sauce at home? How is it in comparison?

    • +1 vote

      Yes.
      It's a fairly easy process and you can play with flavours.
      You just need to get the right type of chilli/pepper.

      •  

        Saw your comment and figured I should ask. I harvested 2 small carolina reapers but we're too chicken to eat them direct. I figured it might be better to make something with it. Is it possible to make a sauce with only the 2 pieces? If not, what can I make with such a small quantity? We were thinking of just putting it in vinegar but it feels like a waste of such a chilli. Thanks!

        • +3 votes

          I have no experience with Carolina reapers, however I surmise 2 will not be enough to make a sauce the way I do it.

          My sauce is basically vinegar, garlic, fresh chilli and some smoked paprika. And just slow cook on the stove. Some people add sugar, I don't.

          For 2 chillis I'd probably Chuck in in a mortar and pestle and add a little vinegar, maybe the tiniest bit of garlic. You'll get more of a one use dipping sauce.
          You may or may not want to remove seeds and piff.
          Who knows depending on the flavour that comes through and how much you want to dilute with vinegar you might be able to bottle it?

          •  

            @dasher86: depends on how spicy he wants it … if he wants to dilute it more, throw it in with a tin of diced tomatos

          •  

            @dasher86: Traditional hot sauce is actually fermented. The fermentation process aids greatly in the flavor profile. The vinegar ect is added after as you can’t ferment with the vinegar there

      Edit: misread.

    Franks is awesome.

    Do yourself a favour and get Cholula instead, it's on special for $4 at the moment from Woolies - https://www.woolworths.com.au/shop/productdetails/757902/cho...

    •  

      Ingredients
      Water, Dried Chili Peppers (5% - Arbol & Piquin), Salt, Vinegar (White & Cider), Spices, Stabilizer (Xanthan Gum).

      Not a lot of Chilis in it. Taste good? Too spicy?

    •  

      Which sauce is hotter of the 2?

      •  

        Red Hot is hotter and better for most uses. Cholula has a nicer smoother taste but doesn't really go with everything.

        • +1 vote

          I find it the other way around, Cholula is great on almost everything, where-as Red Hot I tended to find was a bit too vinegary for my liking.

          Everyone has different palates though so my suggestion is be like Mexican Taco Girl - "why not have both?"

    •  

      Mostly water and only 5% peppers though?

    Time to whip up some hot wings with blue cheese sauce.

    I add this to mayonnaise and call it Frabkayonnaise. Great dipping sauce for chicken.

    Also this on top of KFC. Beautiful.

    I just use it with Dr Oetker's 🍕
