From our friendly neighbors to the north at Dawson’s Hot Sauce, this new smoked sauce is deliciously complex. It’s woods-y and peppery, with a hit of savory garlic. What can’t this sauce do? In our experience, all the best mild hot sauces still let the taste of the chilis shine through. With habanero as the second ingredient, this sauce does just that, and has noticeable heat. So while this is in the #2 spot in the Hot Ones Season 17 lineup, it’s a 3/10 in our book. Try it with roasted salmon, steak, rosemary mashed potatoes or even on a bagel with schmear.
Ingredients: White wine vinegar, habanero, garlic, onion, extra virgin olive oil, sea salt, sumac
