SMŌK Brand Hot Pepper Sauce

SMŌK Brand Hot Pepper Sauce

SMŌK is in the house!
I was recently contacted to be one of the first people to try a new hot sauce called SMŌK. I received a bottle from the maker, Patrick Tolbert and was very interested in tasting this new sauce. After the first taste test straight, I decided to make an omelet and top it with some SMŌK. To my omelet, I added chopped cilantro over the SMŌK sauce, parsley on the side and buttered toast. The straight taste is good, and not too high in vinegar. The heat from the Bhut Jolokia, kind of hits you up front with a nice taste of the Habanero peppers after that. I could taste each the two peppers separately and that is rare. The sauce is simple just Bhut Jolokia, Habaneros, and Apple Cider Vinegar. The heat of the peppers overpowers any apple taste from the vinegar. The only other ingredient is Xanthan Gum. The sauce contains no allergens and has all natural ingredients.

This is a great sauce for fans of Tabasco sauce that would like less vinegar taste, but a bit more heat. I was pleased that when eaten with the omelet, cheese, and cilantro all the flavors melded well. I did get a hint of smokiness in the sauce, but it was not to strong, just a hint. SMŌK Sauce would be great for diners to use as a table sauce for the more heat oriented patrons. Next time I cook up a steak, I am going to slap on some SMŌK to enhance the beef. I am going to use Legendary SMŌK as an additive to recipes that call for a little hot sauce. That will give our cooking a zing in the pepper heat department.

Legendary SMŌK Brand Hot Pepper Sauce is a Proud US Veteran owned company, and is based in Colorado Springs, CO. I wish Patrick and SMŌK a great start with their new to the scene spicy hot sauce.

  1. Thank you for the excellent review, Allen! Not just because it was "positive" (whoo hoo!), but because you took time to REALLY dig the flavors of our sauce and point out a lot of things that could easily be missed! You have a great palette, Sir!

    We sure appreciate your making time for us and we look forward to running into you at a "Heat Event" sometime soon!
