Speedy’s #44 Hot Sauce — We Like it hot-hot-hot!

Fellow bicycle blogger and all-around cool guy Jimmy from 2Drunk2Shift announced a few weeks back that his homemade hot sauce was ready for shipping. Seeing as how I like spicy foods and collect hot sauces, I figured I’d give it a try. $7.00 (including shipping) later, I had a bottle at my door.

Speedy's #44

This sauce is made with habanero peppers…so it packs a good bit of firepower. It’s not overwhelming, though, because the spicy peppers are blended with roasted red peppers, carrots and peaches. This combination gives the sauce a complex flavor, with sweet undertones and savory notes. In short, this sauce is YUMMY! The heat grows gradually as you eat, leaving you with a tingly, peaceful sensation after all is done. That’s the way a good hot sauce should behave…

I’ve tried Speedy’s #44 on scrambled eggs, burritos, grilled chicken and a bunch of other foods. It’s that good — my only recommendations are to buy more than one bottle…and remove that silly shaker cap so you can really pour the sauce on!

Besides all that, the label has some amazing bicycle-related artwork on it…could there be another tattoo in my future?

Jimmy’s got mad sauce-making skillz…so if you’re in the mood for some spice in your life, drop him a line and he’ll send a bottle or three out to you.

Did I mention that I like hot sauce?

    Have you tried Cajun Chow-Chow and Louisiana Swamp Scum Hot Sauce? See the Mossy Bayou web site. Good stuff!

    What’s a tapatio?

    You are kidding, right?

    No…not kidding! I couldn’t possibly know every hot sauce out there!

    Right now I’m concentrating on killing this bottle of Speedy’s and then getting back to the evil brews of far-East Asia (sambal oolek, sriracha and the peri-peri concoctions)

    Tapatio is the Messican hot sauce of choice in LA. Not too hot, not to mild. I’ll send you a bottle along with a Cholula bottle as well.

    Now Cholula I’ve heard of…and eaten. That’s the one with the wooden cap, right? Yummy!

    Cholula is the BEST!!

    I participated in a hot sauce eating contest with some buddies on a road trip….My friend makes his own hot sauce, so he brought 5 different levels of heat.

    My mistake was swallowing it….oh man I thought I was going to die! My stomach hurt so bad! I was crying…that’s how bad it was.

    GR, I’m diggin that artwork too. Love it!

    Ya, Tapatio is what EVERY restaurant in Southern California uses as a hot sauce. Not sure if that’s a knock on it or a compliment. Have Moe ship you a bottle! 🙂

    if you guys dig the artwork on the speedy’s label enough to consider it for a new tatoo consider riding behind the clydesdale and see if you can’t find that demon already plastered somewhere.
