Im a big fan of all hot sauces but Habanero is what I prefer.  Anyway Im wondering if you guys have any suggestions.  I tried the Tobasco Habanero and thats actually pretty good.  I was impressed.  The selections seem limited in the stores around here so Im looking maybe to order some from somewhere.

Anyway thanks for any input fellas

Anything from here:  http://extremefood.com/shop/home.php is the garbage. Their habanero chips crushed up in Wendy's chili = amazing. Well, at least until the next day that is...

I'm using this one right now: http://www.sammcgees.com/html/4/melindas-xxxtra-hot-habanero-hot-sauce.html

actually not that hot, to be honest.  but great flavor and a good level of spice.

 Melinda's is my "go to" hot sauce as well, I use both the habenerno and the red savina varieties. I agree 100% with your comments. When I want to really turn up the heat I use either Walkerswood jonkanoo or scotch bonnett (Jamaica) or for something hot with a hint of sweetness I use Matouk's Calypso Sauce (Trinidad).

I like to make my own.

-few habaneros
-onion (chopped)
-Few carrots (chopped)
-Garlic (minced or chopped)
couple red or green tomatoes (seeded&chopped) optional
-salt
-pepper
-sugar
-Olive oil

sautee carrots in olive oil, add onions and saute to right before carmelization, add tomatoes(optional), garlic, and habaneros (don't chop or dice habaneros before adding to pan, or else the oils will be released into the air and everyone in the room will be crying).  once at desired temp., pour ingredients into blender. add salt, pepper, and sugar to taste and chop/blend intermittently.  taste, and again add salt, pepper and sugar to taste.  If consistency is to thick to blend you can add some water to "thin" up your sauce

dunno about sauces, i take fresh scotch bonnets, cut em in half, put em in a dehydrator over night, then throw em in a coffee bean grinder. boom wicked pepper man. just make sure you got a respirator (3m or north half mask) when you grind em. the dust will darn you up.

Thanks all 

 I checked out those two sites.  Thanks Gunners and walktheline.   I am probably going to order a few.

Right now I am using IGUANA XXX Habanero.  Its pretty good, but not my favorite.  Anyone tried it? It says its made in Costa Rica and distributed from Atlantic Beach Florida.   Pretty hot stuff but it seems its missing something.

Stiln I actually have a bottle of that first one  El Yucateco.   Pretty good and hot.

A few of you have now mentioned Melinda's.  I haven't seen it on the shelves around here in Portland.   I may check the website out

  A few drops in a bowl of chilli, or in your wing sauce is perfect for anyone wanting to kick it up a few notches... not really flavorful, but hotter than hell... I have had hours of enjoyment dipping toothpicks into some Daves Insanity and passing out to my buddies... it will damn sure make the beers go down quickly

Dave's Insanity is the garbage.
 
I want to order some of this and play with it.  At the moment, mankind does not know how to make anything hotter than this...

Just for shits and giggles to make chili and see how hot I could stand it.  You would have to be careful not to kill yourself though.  Seriously.

And think about wearing gloves when cutting them up.  If you rub your eyes after, you will be in for a rude awakening.  And it's not like it washes off either.  It takes time to rub off.  I did this with a jalapeno and it was not enjoyable.  And those aren't even that hot.

I tried this a few weeks back and it's pretty damn hot, but it also has good flavor.  It's hot, but you can actually taste the peppers.  That blazin' sauce at BWW and many other hot sauces I've is just crap...it's just heat.

I will be trying a few of the recommendations here.
