Greg's Hot Sauce Collection Page 

The following is my sometimes updated listing of hot sauces either currently on my shelf, or recently consumed. Some are good, some are bad, some are saltwater with flecks of cayenne, but hey--without hot sauce, life itself would be impossible.

Please note: I don't sell or distribute hot sauces--this is just my personal ranking of my personal collection.  So you can stop sending me e-mail orders.  The list below is subjective,  probably flawed,  and not often updated.

Some possible on-line or other mail-order sources for the following products are FireGirl.comMoHotta MoBetta,  and SalsaExpress.com,  all of whom have catalog and/or WWW selection and service that are quite good.  The Bayou Country Store in New Orleans is also a good place to visit if you're there (in the Jax Brewery building);  they also have on-line ordering.   Finally,  for you Europeans,  the UK-based Chilliworld has a very good selection.

You may also find some useful information at Chile Pepper Magazine’s website.

Personally,  for your ordering needs,  I recommend Firegirl.  Mary Going (a.k.a. Firegirl) is the coolest psycho-bitch on earth,  and now that she’s selling products rather than just raving about them,  we all owe it to ourselves to keep her satisfied.  You’ve been warned.  At this time (07/01) she is using Yahoo!’s portal,  so your Yahoo! Wallet and other ordering information should work just fine when placing your requests.  She has a great selection,  and her e-mail updates are more fun to read than any other you’re likely to subscribe to.
