What is this Sauce of Death?

Blair’s Death Sauce is one of my favorite hot sauce brands. It’s got real flavor, despite being very hot (which hardly any chili sauce can achieve). The sauces range from warm (Sweet Death) to outrageous (Ultra Death – see YouTube clip) to the hottest food ever: pure capsaicin extract.

I plan to bring a bottle of Death Sauce with me on my round-the-world trip. Which kind should it be? Currently I’ve got these babies sitting around:

I was debating about Salsa de la Muerte (Spanish-speaking export version), After Death, or perhaps Stronger than Death. I don’t want to bring one so hot that no one can do more than taste a drop on a toothpick. Of course, if Blair could comp me a bottle of Golden Death (and could get it into Europe despite the volcano), I’d gladly share the newest member of the family with those I meet around the globe…

Hot Sauce lovers, Chiliheads, lend me your taste buds… which sauce do YOU think I should take around the world with me?

For those interested in how the photos were taken, see the setup below:

The first picture featured here was taken with a red gel on the off-camera strobe with the umbrella. The second was taken without gels. In both cases I used a “puffer” on the camera’s flash to soften the light.

  1. Red gel and puffers?

    Anyway, what ‘sauce of death’ to take on your world trip?…. hmm… perhaps one that doesn’t blow the recipients head off :)

  2. Wendy, I guess that’s one vote for Salsa de la Muerte, the least mind-blowing of the sauces I’m considering :-) And in my opinion, the best flavor…

    Ahh… gels are colored filters that go over the flash to get colored light. And the puffer is a diffuser, kind of like putting a white plastic lampshade in front of the flash to make the light softer.
