I prefer Frank's over Texas Pete and Tabasco.

Absolutely.

Or Tabasco on shrimp and grits? I don't think so.

There used to be a couple stores that sold a variety of hot sauces. I generally just use Texas Pete or whatever else is sitting on the table. I like Habernero based sauces but as I get older my body rejects them quite a bit faster than it did when I was younger.

I concur with Artoris!! The nerve of these places that advert items as 'hot' , but their criteria is based upon reactions of a 3 year old eating Doritos. I have to carry mine to certain spots as well. I have at least 8 different kinds , with a stalemate of Tabasco and El Yucateco. There is a place in Ohio that sells some excellent sauces. They are called C.A. Johns Fiery Foods. Their items will put you into an early grave if the warnings are not followed to the letter.

Tabasco for the win.
The Winston-Salem based Texas Pete it too mild for my taste buds, although it is what my great-grandmother & grandmother always used.

Every region has it own type of sauces that go well with the types of local food. The flavors play off one another. I use Texas Peter for pork bbq and Tabasco for Cajun type foods and Valentina Hot Sauce for Mexican.

Try the hotter Texas Pete Hot Sauce | Texas Pete® Hot Sauce But, Texas Pete goes more toward flavor than heat.

How is Texas Pete on wings compared to Frank's? I just started making my own baked hot wings, and they are delicious!
I used some Louisiana brand hot sauce, was sort of impressed.
