General's Hot Sauce Shock&Awe
Not for the faint of heart, this sauce was a special request from our beloved heat freak fans that we have since opened up to the rest of the universe. Made with almost 90% Louisiana-grown orange habaneros (we liked that flavor the best from all our testing), you'll get a unique punch of deep, powerful, sustained heat that is offset by a sweet aroma and taste. Many of our fans will use this sauce to "spike" Dead Red when making wings, it checks in (1-10) around an 8.5-9, according to most folks. So as not to distract from that sweet-heat combination, we add a touch less salt so that the true flavor of the habanero pepper really pops in the sauce. You can set your watch by the habanero pepper—it delivers a fairly consistent heat and flavor even in varying conditions.
