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!

It’s simply delicious.  Each element of the flavour profile accompanies the taste of the ghost in one of the best ways possible. I would highly recommend to anyone who thinks they would enjoy a smoky, earthy, and bold sweetness with a medium-level kick!

Da Bomb Ghost Pepper Salsa

August 07, 2018

Da Bomb Ghost Pepper Salsa by Original Juan Specialty Foods is a top-notch salsa that I highly recommend to those who really like it hot. Instead of getting a run-of-the-mill brand name grocery store salsa and adding hot sauce to it, why not pick up one that is already actually spicy!  Not only is it scorching hot, it maintains a great flavour at the same time.
