Pepper Palace Fall Hot Sauce Review

Pepper Palace Fall Review Cover.jpg

Just because it’s fall, doesn’t mean the heat has to go away – especially if you are me (or like me) and love are addicted to can’t live without hot sauce. Remember this hot sauce review from this summer? [If you haven’t yet, you need to go read it to get an idea of just how much I love hot sauce]. Much to my surprise and excitement, I was recently contacted by the Pepper Palace to review a few more of their products. To date Pepper Palace has won hundreds of National Awards for product, marketing & flavor. A private held corporation, Pepper Palace remains a family owned and operated business with a reputation second to none. Pepper Palace is known as a “One-Stop-Shop” for everything spicy and while you can shop for a myriad of products online, you can also visit one of their many locations (I hope to make it to one before I die, it’s right up there with the natural wonders of the world).

Pepper Palace was kind enough to send me four products to review in exchange for my opinions on them, which are entirely my own so, let’s get to it! There’s not much talk to be had when there’s hot sauce involved on my blog…

Black Rose Hot Sauce

  • Made with: Red Jalapeno, Cayenne, Habanero, vinegar, garlic, spices
  • Tastes like: The habanero flavor really comes through in this thinner hot sauce. I really like it and it’s hot.
  • What makes it special: It has a slightly smoky flavor and would be excellent in chili this fall/winter. It has an exellent flavor that would also be good on burritos.

Garlic & Pepper Hot Sauce

  • Made with: Aged red peppers, vinegar, salt, garlic
  • Tastes like: This sauce has a great garlic flavor and will compliment anything with garlic in it. It is not overly spicy, but has a good, rich flavor. It reminds me of Tabasco with garlic.
  • What makes it special: This is a thin hot sauce that would be perfect for use in recipes. I have also been adding it to soup.

King Jolokia Hot Sauce

  • Made with: Naga Jolokia Peppers (a.k.a. Ghost Pepper/Chili/Naga Morich/Bhut Jolokia), carrots, papayas, lime juice, vinegar, onions, passion fruit, garlic, salt
  • Tastes like: This sauce packs a pure heat punch – and I love it. Ghost peppers, being the hottest in the world, are not for the faint of mouth or heart! I dumped on this hot sauce like I normally do, but soon found out a small amount will do. The heat creeps up on you from the back of your throat and let me tell you, it’s HOT.
  • What makes it special: This sauce comes with a warning that 1) it is the hottest pepper on record coming in at over 1 million Scoville Units and 2) that being found in Northeast India, it is often used as elephant repellant. I can’t wait to try it with my Famous (Ghostly) Chili.

Rub Dat Butt Seasoning Rub


  • Made with: Salt, black pepper, onion, garlic, paprika, Chipotle powder (smoked jalapeno)
  • Tastes like: This rub is smoky, earthy and peppery; but not overly spicy. You could use it on any meats or vegetables you wanted to season. It makes a great pantry staple! 
  • What makes it special: I didn’t think it was possible, but this made my Easy Shredded Crock Pot Chipotle Chicken Tacos even better! I just rubbed it onto the chicken thighs before placing them in the crockpot.

My favorite of the group? Hands down is this-
