The General's Heat Seeker - Welcome to the Heat Seeker: cayenne and habanero Heaven! Dead Red is a rich, medium-to-hot cayenne sauce, perfect on pizza, BBQ, Mexican food, or chicken dishes. Danger Close is a hotter, blended sauce; DC packs a strong cayenne flavor, but with a solid backdoor kicker of habanero heat. We think it’s the PERFECT sauce for hot buffalo wings. Shock & Awe is not for the faint of heart—concentrated habanero heat balanced against an initially citrusy flavor, extremely hot. Use it in sauces or in chili, and BE CAREFUL.
Dead Red: Our classic signature product. Made from Louisiana-grown, fully ripe red cayenne peppers hand-picked at exactly that right time, and then salted down and aged until the mash is perfect for conversion and bottling. An all-natural product that is 86% cayenne peppers, this sauce packs a truly authentic, aged cayenne flavor that will be very different when compared to other sauces that typically have a stronger concentration of vinegar. Depending upon each growing season's weather patterns, heat (1-10) will range between 5-6. This sauce won't melt your brain, but depending upon your palate, you may need to reach for a cold beverage.
Danger Close: Our newest flavor, Danger Close is a magical blend of red cayenne and orange habanero peppers. We think it's the PERFECT sauce for making buffalo wings--it packs a strong cayenne flavor, but also brings a solid backdoor kicker of habanero heat. More heat than our bestseller, Dead Red, but it won't melt your brain like a heavy dose of Shock & Awe. When you try the new Heat Seeker 3 pack, "climb the ladder" and start with Dead Red, advance to Danger Close, and then top it off with some Shock & Awe habanero punishment.
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 86% 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 that habaneros naturally have. 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.
