    Hell Hound is the latest hot sauce in the Lucky Dog Hot Sauce lineup, and it is undoubtedly our hottest to date!  

    Far hotter than Heat's a Peach, Hell Hound is not a "novelty sauce", but it is more than respectably hot. Thoughtfully balanced, Hell Hound features the searing heat of the Carolina Reaper, along with fire-roasted peppers, mango, tamarind & roasted garlic to create a uniquely layered and fiercely fiery hot sauce that is more than just a "stunt" product to mess with your friends. Fantastic flavor is rare in a sauce this hot, yet Hell Hound lives up to Lucky Dog Hot Sauce's mantra of not overpowering food. 

    As such, Hell Hound is sure to be a favorite among hot sauce aficionados looking for much more flavor with their fire. Hell Hound is unique, complex & layered, with just a touch of evil mixed in for good measure. 

    No extract needed to burn with this sublimely savory, slightly sweet and hellaciously hot pepper sauce that pairs perfectly with almost any dish.


    Hell Hound is hotter than hell, but it’s still Food’s Best Friend. (Or in this case, Fiend's Best Friend!) 

     

    Pairing suggestions: For those with greater than normal tolerance Hell Hound pairs beautifully with pork, pizza, Mexican food, steak, fish, chicken, BBQ, sandwiches, in soups and stews and will enhance virtually all of your favorite recipes.

    The Story Behind the Sauce
    The Carolina Reaper is a challenging little pepper to work with for a myriad of reasons. Finding balance between the fire & flavor, and working to integrate the slightly bitter notes of the Reaper in a savory sauce wasn't easy.
    I never want to make a sauce where I have to fight to mask the flavor of the main ingredient with heaps of salt or sugar, as that runs counter to everything I believe as a sauce-maker.
    After months of prototyping, Hell Hound features the Carolina Reaper while enhancing the pepper's flavor with subtle sweetness of mango, tartness of tamarind & a selection of savory spices, while rounding it out with savory roasted garlic. 
    The resulting sauce is incredibly aromatic, provides a long-lasting burn & brutally building heat. 
    For an all-natural sauce with no extract, it definitely holds its own in the world of borderline unnecessarily hot sauces, while not being so horrifically hot that it drowns out your meal (or sends you racing for the milk & antacids!) 
    Once the recipe was finalized, I reached out to an old friend to help with the label. Co-creator of Transmetropolitan, Happy, and The Boys (Now a fantastic show on Amazon Prime!) Darick Robertson and I go all the way back to high school. I didn't know if he'd have the time or inclination to work on a label, and I was delighted to hear he was excited about the idea. He graciously offered to draw the gorgeous, whimsically evil background & I am as in awe of his talent as when we were teenagers.
    Long-time Lucky Dog collaborator & graphic artist extraordinaire Kara Thauer lent her tremendous talent to add color to the background & embellishments to the Dog/Horseshoe logo to make Lucky just a little more devilishly handsome.
    The collaboration resulted in yet another amazing piece of art to adorn my hottest sauce to date. I am eternally grateful to them both for their heroic efforts.
