Welcome back Hot Ones fans this is Sean Evans and it's that time! It is time to introduce you to the Season 22 Hot Ones hot sauce lineup. As always, we have a collection of indie sauce makers who not only make delicious hot sauces but are also an amazing tight-knit group of people.
On that note in wake of the devastating wildfires in Maui, Hawaii last month multi-season Hot Ones alum Adoboloco sprung into action donating proceeds from the sauce to help residents in need. That right there is what the hot sauce community is all about. So I want to give a shout out to Adoboloco and of course rescue efforts are ongoing so if you're interested or you can help support, please see the link below me in the description of this video.
And with that it's time to introduce you to my 10 new best friends, the Season 22 lineup! And we begin with a historic moment in Hot Ones history, our first ever buffalo sauce. We knew that if we were going to make a Buffalo sauce, it had to be something truly special and something that would get the seal of approval from our own Buffalonian, Camera Guy Bill. It's mild. It's tangy. It's made with aged cayenne and real butter. That's right, you heard me right. No melting, no mixing required. It's all right here in the sauce. And we present it to the pantheon of great Buffalo sauces in the history salute to the OG's of Buffalo. Grab a bottle, let us know what you think.
And now it's time to move on to sauce number two. In the number two spot, our friends at Angry Goat in Vermont are back with a sauce that brings the crispy, charred flavor of blistered shishito peppers and blends it with savory garlic. Whenever you order shishito peppers at a restaurant, they're always those random ones that are extra spicy. So in the the number two sauce you can expect the unexpected with this one. You never know what you're going to get.
Alright, moving on to sauce number three! Introducing a brand new member of the Hot Ones family, Pisqueya here in the number three spot. The flavor profile is inspired by founder and maker Maritza Abreu's Dominican roots. Caribbean-grown passion fruit is the star of the show but then you have this chili heat that rounds out the whole tropical three-spot experience.
And then moving on to sauce number four. Summer may be behind us, but it ushers in a season of tailgating so the official sauce of grilling and chilling takes over number four. If it's anything like last year, those deep smoky notes of chipotle may be all that can comfort me through another Bears season. But not this time around baby - it is going to be the taste of victory all season long. The Bears going all the way and fueling me through it all. Hot Ones Barbacoa!
Alright, moving on to sauce number five. And what I have to say - in all of my years of doing this show, just my favorite sauce to look at through the glass bottle. It's absolutely gorgeous. Like a work of art. Like the surface of Jupiter. Say hello to number five, Djablo. The Djablo Power Jab delivers a punch to the face of serrano peppers, Thai chili flakes and dried Scorpion peppers plus powerful Filipino flavors with aromatics like ginger and garlic. They all come together to make a sauce that tastes just as good as it looks. And with this one that's saying something.
You guys picking that up? Did Dave Grohl just walk back in the studio? I'm catching hints of whiskey? Oh you know what, that's actually just our sauce to kick off the back half. At number six we have a whiskey infused hot sauce. In at number six, is Whiskey Smoked Ghost. The brainchild of Sarah Marshall who showcases her dedication to craft ingredients. It's a sweet and smoky sauce featuring whiskey, white balsamic, date syrup and yeah, of course, ghost pepper to really kick up the heat. Here to kick things off in the back half
Then moving on to number seven. Another familiar face, with Ginger Goat. Ginger Goat's Tropic Star lights up your taste buds with tart mango, citrusy lemongrass and the subtle sweetness of star anise. Shout out to our pals at Ginger Goat, a legend of the Hot Ones Season 15 lineup and prime to achieve their own version of goat status with a return to the table here in Season 22.
And speaking of sauces that make the return again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again again again again again again… Da Bomb at number eight. If there's one thing that you can count on in a forever changing and uncertain world, it's that Da Bomb will hold on to its eighth spot. And here it is, in Season 22, once again. Da Bomb Beyond Insanity.
And then following that up in the wake of the fallout from Da Bomb, we have Dawson's, another familiar face to encore. It's never easy to follow Da Bomb, but Zuzu 7-pot from Dawson's does its damnedest. The 7-pot peppers in this sauce just provide a head banging heat, a beautiful color, but do not be confused. An absolutely brutal hot sauce.
Moving on to number 10. It's a historic lineup here in Season 22. And we're bookending with two brand new hot sauces. Say hello to The Last Dab Xperience. Behold, The Xperience. They said it couldn't be done. Perhaps it shouldn't have been done. But we've raised the peak of Mount Scoville to towering new heights thanks to Smokin’ Ed Currie’s diabolical abominations. Ed's worked his magic to distill the power of Pepper X into a brand new sauce one that is 91% Pepper X. It is pure Pepper X straight to the dome. A complete mind body and soul takeover. The hottest Last Dab we have ever made. Take on the Xperience, but only if you dare.
And there you have it! It's another Hot Ones hot sauce symphony. Call us the show pin of chilis. And as always if you'd like to get your hands on the Season 22 Hot Ones hot sauce lineup that's heatonist.com, heatonist.com, heatonist.com so that you can play at home.
