I love spicy sauces as much as the next person but IMHO, The heat the sauce puts out is secondary to the actual taste of the sauce itself. Im not big into the novelty "blow yer pie hole out" micro brewery sauces. They do however, make for good "bet your drunk friend he cant down a teaspoon with out breaking a sweat" sauces. The only one I had an extensive relationship with back in the 90's was Dave's Insanity, the first one. It had kick yet had a really good aftertaste. It was killer in Chili. Other than that, I keep to the sauces I mentioned previously...They are my go-to mainstays.
