Dawson’s Big Smoke Chipotle Hot Sauce

January 24, 2018

   Dawson’s Big Smoke Chipotle Hot Sauce is one of the first sauces that REALLY got me into spicy food and hot sauce a few years back. Brodie Dawson, the young Hamiltonian entrepreneur who founded the company, makes fantastic gourmet products that are all worth trying out! Each sauce has a unique, fresh taste that I have enjoyed time and time again!                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                   One of the first things I’ll say right off the bat about Dawson’s sauces is their unique presentation. The label, the little string knot, and waxed top makes it stand out quite a lot from other sauces on the market. It looks… fancy! Impress a fellow spicy food enthusiast whether it be a friend, co-worker, or family member by getting them a bottle!

   This is a very bold, smoky, and savoury sauce. The quality ingredients and the way they work together make this one of my favourite chipotle sauces out there. A great aspect of this sauce, as with all of Dawson’s products, is the texture. It has a certain thickness and a nice little crunch from the chiles’ seeds. The chipotles provide the bold smokiness of the sauce, with the Vietnamese and scotch bonnet chiles kicking the heat level in this sauce up a notch, making it stand out from most other chipotle-based sauces. The green chiles also balance out the sauce with their mild heat and bright flavour. The garlic adds a robustness, with just a touch of brown sugar to add a hint of sweetness that is always a nice complement to a smoky flavour. The extra virgin olive oil and vinegar naturally binds all the ingredients in the sauce together. In terms of heat I give this one a 4 out of 10. It’s a medium-heat-level sauce that can be pretty much enjoyed by all. It’s a tad hotter than your conventional chipotle sauce, but definitely stands out for its flavour profile.

   Add Dawson’s Big Smoke to anything that could use a spicy-smoky edge. I have used this sauce in so many ways. It’s perfect in tacos, burritos, sandwiches, salads, soups, chili, grilled cheese, on pizza, and pasta too. Enjoy it as a dip mixed with mayo, hummus, tahini, or even mustard!

   I highly recommend you check out the whole Dawson’s product lineup. He makes a wide range of hot sauces including Sweet Pear Chili, Original, Chocolate Chili, and Garlic Jalapeno. You can find all these top-quality products on our website or at our store locations! Make sure to come by and give Dawson’s Big Smoke Chipotle Hot Sauce a try!

   As always, Keep it spicy!

Puckerbutt Honey Bonnet Hot Sauce

Puckerbutt Honey Bonnet Hot Sauce is a testament to the fact that sometimes sauces with very few ingredients can be the best-tasting ones. With only a handful of ingredients, this product packs a unique, flavourful punch like no other on the market.

Burns & McCoy Exhorresco Hot Sauce

November 07, 2018

 Now I don’t say this very often about a hot sauce, but Exhorresco by Burns & McCoy is simply phenomenal. Before having tried this sauce a few years back, I had never thought that a sauce could have such a unique flavour profile while having such a scorching burn.

Karma Sauce Funken Hot Hot Sauce

November 01, 2018

 This hot sauce is downright TASTY! This is quite a unique product, as there are very few sauces on the market that use the brown chile varieties. These ones are generally slightly hotter than the red varieties and have a more rich and darker quality to them.

Not hot, but very flavourful

I first discovered this product in your shop when it was located on Sussex Drive in the market area and have enjoyed it ever since. It's not a spicy product, but it has an excellent flavour and is a great accompaniment to all sorts of meats - beef, pork, and chicken - particularly when grilled on a gas or charcoal BBQ. It seems to come and go on the shelves, but I hope to see it stocked more regularly.

The best hot sauce!

We travel to Belize often but when we carry-on we can’t bring back the hot sauce. We use it on everything and love the variety they produce.

Thankful that we can order online and get super fast delivery!

I love this sauce

good taste and easily pourable on any surface. I will definitely buy again.

Definitely the hottest

I can't really speak for the flavour as the heat obliterated any there might have been, but these were hands down the hottest noodles (and hottest thing in general) that I've ever had. If you're looking for a solid spicy food challenge, buy this before it's sold out!

Product exceeded expectations.

Thank you so much for having the BEST Selection anywhere.
