The Dragon’s Smoke

Happy tuesday again people, it’s time for another little shot of Dragon’s Blood. But, instead of showing you my free sample jar, here’s what you’d get if you actually purchased today’s product:

DB BBQ (1)-500x500

A black and golden brown, scale patterned bottle that both strongly resembles the others in its line and uses the two main colours associated with its sauce type.

Super Smoky Syrup

Hey folks, last month we looked at a delicious new product that I got at Reading Chilli Festival but this month I have something even newer for you.

This week’s product comes to you from Burning Desire Foods, is a little more out there than a sauce and was actually released on the day of the event. What I have for you is their chipotle syrup:

Spiced and Smokey

Happy tuesday, heat eaters, I’m back from Reading Chilli Festival. In the coming months, there’ll be all sorts of wondrous new things featured here but today it’s time for something a little less new.

Something just as exciting, mind you. It’s my favourite of the Screaming Chimp’s product samples.

Last time we heard from them we took a look at their hottest “Stinger” sauce but this week we’re going back down to the very bottom of their heat scale to try out Vic’s Ol’ Smokey. A sauce that uses smoked paprika, instead of chillies, for its flavour but does back it up with bird’s eye heat.

Their proudest work, their Smoke Potion: Magnum Opus. Which is an upgrade to their original Smoke Potion, an excellent and slightly sweet chipotle sauce to which they have added honey bourbon, mustard and smoked ghost pepper.

People asked for more heat and the alchemist delivered.

Fizz and Fire

Greetings everyone, today we’re looking at something a little less spicy.

This time we’re looking at one of Tabasco’s more obscure products. Something that’s been sitting in my fridge for a while not because I don’t like it but because it doesn’t go with most of the food I eat and didn’t really fit my review schedule earlier on.

But, instead of just telling you what it is, why not have a proper look at it?

Smoked Chilli Cheese… Cake?

Hello again everyone and welcome to my last post of the month. This tuesday I plan to cap it off with another foray into the unusual. I bring you this:

2016-05-24 20.04.34

Lilly’s Chillies’ mild, Smoked chilli jelly. It has a golden flavour from its habanero base, similar to marmalade but without any of the sharpness, while also having a bit of smokey depth from some ultra-fine smoked pimiento powder. It looks light and clear but the smoke is definitely there, even if it isn’t overpowering. And in fact, that’s for the best, since it makes a lovely cheesecake this way.
