Glenn says: “Our favorite is Blair's Original Death, a great chipotle-garlic vinegar & habanero sauce. A little dab’ll do ya.” He’s not lying about the “dab’ll do ya” credo -- Blair’s hot sauces range from Sweet Death to Ultra Death, which maxes out at 800,000 Scoville units, or 160 times hotter than a jalapeño pepper.
The most important meal of the day requires a bit of thought when it comes to hot sauce. You don’t want to mess it up!

With more and more heat-heads pressing the market to innovate, we may soon be seeing more syrups and sauces infused with chili peppers.
