Jersey Boyz Jerky- Review of Joe’s #1 Jalapa and Old Bricktucky Cayenne

BENITO’S HOT SAUCE


By Jerseyboyzjerky 

 

OLD BRICKTUCKY CHYENNE PEPPER SAUCE

IngredientsRoma Tomatoes,Garlic,Onions,Lime Juice,White Vinegar,Chyenne Peppers,Cimamon.Paprika

This was my favorite of the two. As you can see from the picture, the fresh Roma Tomatoes Followed by the Vinegar and the lime juice was a winning combo.This sauce has a very strong vinegar taste that leaves you mouth wanting more.The Tomatoes and the Vinegar combined with the lime juice make the sauce very very Runny.We were having Ribs done in a slow cooker for dinner so i was interested in seeing how this sauce does over ribs and rice.This sauce added just the righ amount of vinegar and flavoring to these ribs.Although you can taste the Chyenne pepper there is not much heat in this sauce at all.

*********Mixed well wih the rice***************

JOE’S #1 JALAPA

Ingredients…Jalapeno Peppers,Habanero seed,Cubanelle Peppersgarlic,Carrots,Cilantro.Lime Juice,Vinegar,EVOO(Extra Virgin Olive Oil).Spring Water.

As like the first sauce, there is alot of vinegar in this one.You can taste the Jalapenos and the lime juice but the strong taste of vinegar hits you right away.There are little shredds of Peppers in there to add a nice burn to the sauce.I need another bowl of ribs and rice like i needed a hole in my head but i had to take one for the team.This sauce poured out much slower than the first…I feel that this sauce had much more of a vinegar taste to it than the first but when all is said and done this sauce added the the flavor of the ribs and rice.

Labels….I have to say the Guys at Benitos have there own idea of how a hot sauce label should look.The graphics alone are enough to makes you want to pick these bottles up.

Cayenne Peppers

      Cayenne peppers pack much more of a kick than jalapenos. They range from about 30,000 to 50,000 on the Scoville heat index. Cayenne peppers are usually sold in a dried or ground up form at the grocery store. They are bit harder to find at the supermarket in raw form. Cayenne peppers are quite hot when picked fresh off the vine. A solid chomp and subsequent chew will produce an endorphin rush similar to consuming lots of rich dark chocolate. Much like the jalapeno or any other hot pepper, the capsaicin in cayenne peppers is most efficiently released when they are roasted.

      The cayenne pepper originated in the city of Cayenne which is the capital of French Guiana. At Central Farms, we prefer a strain of Cayennes known as super twos because they are very resilient during the extremely hot and dank Watchung Valley summers. They are also quite resistant to dry rot (a pepper farmer’s worst nightmare).Also, this particular variety produces a very high yield. We have also tried the jumbo variety, the Carolina long slim, as well as various Indian varieties. It is best to pick cayenne peppers when they turn a full on fire engine red color. Usually, the rule is: the longer you wait for the peppers to mature, the hotter they will get. Cayennes have what is considered a medium length growing season.

      We use only homegrown, organic cayenne peppers in our Old Bricktucky Cayenne. Thesauce is a unique break from your traditional strict cayenne and vinegar concoctions. It is a distinct blend of organic cayenne peppers, cinnamon, paprika, and bell peppers. It is fantastic on pork chops or on a nice loaf of cornbread. But like all of our sauces, it is quite versatile in thatit goes well with pretty much anything.
