Punk's Gourmet Pepper Sauce Smok'n flavour review!


Well a was given the opportunity to do a review of Punk Gourmet Pepper Sauce Smok'n from Dixie Brit farms. Two weeks ago I receive a complimentary bottle of each of their flavor of sauce in the mail which I am pretty excited in doing a review on. The Punk Gourmet Pepper sauce is available in a mild and smok'n hot format. Also all of their sauces are low in sodium, gluten free and made with all natural ingredients! I first heard of this sauce on Facebook on the Kamado Joe Page about five weeks ago and I am very glad that Marty Crews introduced it to me and fellow friends on Facebooks.

Who's Punk?

Just a regular ole' guy with a really cool family and lots of great friends who eventually convinced him that his slightly sweet pepper sauce was ready to go nationwide!
One thing for sure, no matter if it's on seafood, vegetables, nachos, as a marinade or grilling sauce.......
"Get your lips ready to dance!"

OK let's get this review going!

Product:

Punk's Gourmet Pepper Sauce Smok'n





Aroma:

This hot sauce has a nice stronger tomato peppery smell compared to their milder version which isn't overwhelming.

Texture:

The Punk Gourmet Pepper Sauce Smok'n flavour is not too thin and not too thick in texture which I really like to see in a sauce. You can see lots of small pieces of peppers and spices in it which is a very good sign. This sauce looks like it homemade but don't let that fool you! It sticks pretty well to whatever you apply it to. It also has a reddish and brownish colour to it.

Taste:

This sauce has a nice fresh, sweet peppery taste with a hint of tomatoes and leave a nice big zing of heat. It's basically taste like their mild version with lots more heat to it and more pepper flavor. This sauce is design for all the folks out there that love their food on the hot and wild side!

Taste after cooking:

Well I decided to use this sauce in my Buffalo Chicken Nacho recipe. After cooking I notice that you lose a little bit of the heat from the spices but you still get the nice strong sweet pepper flavor which still give you a nice zing of heat.

Ingredients:

Peppers, Onion, Vinegar, Tomatoes, Dark Brown Sugar, Water, Lemon Juice, Liquid Smoke, Garlic Powder, and Paprika.

Rating:

I have tried a lot of BBQ sauce in my time from all over the world. I am in the Canadian Navy and I always get different BBQ sauce from each places I go to  too try on my grill. Let me tell you I was very impress with the quality, taste and texture of this sauce. I really loved the fact that all there Punk Gourmet Pepper Sauce are gluten free, low sodium and made from all natural ingredients! This one was really hard to write because I usually don't like really hot sauces but this one I actually loved it on my nachos. This one would also go extremely well on a pizza. I also made some friends at work that loves hot sauces to try some of it to get there take on it. They all said that it's one of the best one they tried and they loved it a lot better than the Canadian Franks Hot Sauce! I definitely rates the Punk Gourmet Pepper Sauce Smok'n sauce a 5 stars out of 5 stars! I would definitely recommends the Punk Gourmet Pepper Sauce Smok'n sauce to all my friends and family members that has app├ętit for hot sauces! I also included my nacho recipe bellow for everyone to try.

Buffalo Chicken Nacho Recipe


Ingredients:

- 1 chicken breast
- 6-8 slices of bacon, cooked and crumbled
- ¼ cup sour cream
- 3-4 teaspoons of Punk's Gourmet Pepper Sauce Smok'n, adjust to your taste
- ½ cup bleu cheese
- ½ cup scallions, chopped
- homemade potato chips or regular ones
- Dizzy Pig Jamaican Firewalk
- 1/2 cup grated mozilla cheese optional

Directions:

1. Pre-heat your BBQ to 375 degrees Fahrenheit

2. Season your chicken breast with Jamaican Firewalk from Dizzy Pig Rubs and cook until no longer pink on the BBQ grill. Set aside and allow to cool, then shred.

3. Tinley slice potatoes ( I prefer red potatoes or russets) into tin chip slices then seasoned them with a little Jamaican Firewalk from Dizzy Pig Rubs (put rub to taste and remember Jamaican Firewalk packs a punch of heat) and cook them in a frying pan with a little bit of canola oil till they are golden. If you're in a hurry you can fry them in the deep fat fryer or use regular plain chips!

4. For Kamado Joe owners put the heat deflector with the stone in the top position and place pizza stone on top. For Big Green Egg users place the plate setter with legs down with pizza stone. For regular propane or other charcoal BBQ place pizza stone on top of Grill.

5. Now you want to bring BBQ temp to 425 Degrees Fahrenheit and let the heat settle.

6. In a small bowl mix together sour cream and Gourmet Pepper Sauce Smok'n.

7. Lay potato chips on Pars man Paper with little to no overlap. Drizzle with Gourmet Pepper Sauce Smok'n and then top with chicken, bacon, bleu cheese, scallions, and optional grated Mozilla cheese.

8. With Pizza peel place on the BBQ pizza stone with lid close for 6-8 minutes or until bleu cheese starts to bubble.
NOTES: If you don't like using store made rubs you can use the following rub recipe which I also find pretty good to use with this nacho recipe.

Basic Chicken Rub
Ingredients:

·        1 tablespoon onion powder
·        1 tablespoon garlic powder
·        1 tablespoon salt
·        2 teaspoons whole mustard seeds
·        1 teaspoon sage
·        1 teaspoon thyme
·        1 teaspoon paprika
·        1 teaspoon black pepper

Now mix all the ingredients and store in air tight container. It can keep for up to six month!

Happy Grilling and stay tune for more reviews and recipes!
