      I have two Dawson's hot sauces and they're both great. Mind you I haven't tried the one that he trashed. The mellower one is Garlic Jalapeno and is a great light creamy sauce when you want to add just a bit of heat and flavor. The other is XXX Ghost Pepper Mash which is extremely hot and you certainly don't need much of it. I saw them at a show and they had a Chocolate Sauce which just had a tiny bit of heat. I really wish I had gotten some of that as well. I just picked these up a few months ago so perhaps they've upped their game since when this video was shot.

      I just found this and agree Ramsay was a bit of an arrogant drama Queen. This for me was far better and the sarcasm way more biting and on point. Absolutely agree with food network going downhill after it morphed into reality tv for the masses...quantity over quality.

    I have eaten chicken wings all over the US, best place is Syracuse, NY. You can't swing a dead cat without hitting a place that has great wings.

    You've had some fantastic guests, but Alton Brown is my favorite. What a treat to hear his thoughtful and intelligent responses to both the sauces and your questions. I'm curious what it would take to get him to the level of delirium that we've seen delete the defenses of so many of your guests. I hope you sent him a bottle of your Los Calientes since he noticed and appreciated your other two. He'll probably flex and take a swig of that one too, lol.

    Ok now I need to try that fiery chipotle. Maybe because I'm not a fan of ginger was why I dont like the last dab? So now I need to get some of Alton's favourite sauce of the bunch.

    Alton Brown talking about being so depressed in grocery stores that he walks away from his cart reminds me of when Anthony Bourdain said he was emotionally bedridden after eating airport Johnny Rockets. They have a similar clear-eyed sensitivity to the ills of modern humanity while most of us willingly accept the numbing static at least sometimes. Take care of yourself, ABs.

    This was Alton at his best. Funny as hell and smart enough to know that this was not about hot wings or was about a performance and getting his message across to the viewers. He tactfully ate very little of the actual wings and saved his palate, but also managed to not shy away from the challenge. Very smart and very good guy...well done.
