The most recent duel between Puckerbutt Definitely Reaper Puree and CaJohn’s Oaxacan Hot Sauce, no pun intended, was a heated one! Puckerbutt possessed a sizable lead through most of the match-up, but in classic Ultimate Hot Sauce Showdown style, CaJohn’s with their equally classic Oaxacan sauce pulled out ahead to claim a Second Round spot.
Today’s duel is going to be an interesting one! The wildly popular and almost cult-like garnering Huy Fong Sriracha Sauce, AKA “Rooster Sauce”, is the “Goliath” looming large over the “David” of Chef Doug Crane’s Dragon’s Blood Elixir Unique Destiny Sauce. As you could probably guess, Sriracha is the heavy favorite, as it’s now available in the majority of American supermarkets, and it’s by far the most “nationally available” of all sauces in the Ultimate Hot Sauce Showdown. And although it doesn’t have 1/100th of the notority of Sriracha, the absolutely wonderfully-tasting (and, uh, unique) Dragon’s Blood Elixir Unique Destiny Sauce is raved about in hardcore chilehead circles, and the “silent hoardes” of diehard hot sauce fans could possibly help Dragon’s Blood pull off a victory.
