This edition of Fiery Friday is really more like EAT MORE MEAT! I’ve got a steak seasoning from the folks at Texas Tasty, and I whipped up a meal to get the full cooking experience. Granted, I lack a legitimate grill, but I’m sure the stew beef I used, as well as my impressions of this product, should be more than enough to advocate for or against a purchase. Come along, then, and let’s see what’s inside the jar.
The hot sauce business is one that is perfect for innovative thinkers. When your only goals are to make something spicy and tasty, there’s a lot of room left over for new ideas and ingredients. Of course, that doesn’t stop companies from releasing products based on the most basic recipe, with the aim of capturing that coveted “table sauce” market. You know, the sort of sauce that you just keep around for any and all purposes. That seems to be the intent behind Red Robot’s original flavor of hot sauce, but you won’t catch me complaining as long as it tastes good.
Whoa, has it really been three weeks since I last wrote a review? Hey, um, sorry about that. Anyway, I’m back tonight with a product that quickly caught my eye while browsing the hot sauce rack at a local Liquid Town. The sauce in question is Hot Line’s Hatchanero. Fans of the erstwhile EAT MORE HEAT! live show may remember that James scored an exclusive first review alongside the brand’s founder, Kerry Stessel, back in April 2012. I honestly can’t remember if that review included Hatchanero, and I can’t really be bothered to spend too much time checking at this point. And even if he did, it has been almost two years, and you all could stand to have a written review of this very enticing sauce.
Back in December, I wrote a review of a product called ‘Cue Sauce. To make a long story short, that sauce was definitely one of the worst things I have tried since taking on this reviewing gig. Not that I actually sample a lot of awful products, mind you, but ‘Cue Sauce’s Original recipe is easily at the bottom of the “Things I Would Put on My Food” list. However, I’m a fair man, and I believe that everyone gets a clean slate with each new review, which is why I’m going into this review of ‘Cue Sauce’s Jalapeno variety with the same hopes and dreams I had for the Original. Maybe something was just missing from that one, and the Jalapeno sauce is able to fill that void. Let’s hope so.
