REVIEW: Red Hawk Premium Peppers’ B3 Hot Sauce

You are not going to see too many hot sauces with this combination of ingredients- a mixture of berries, bananas and ghost peppers(bhut jolokia). Red Hawk Premium Peppers are not afraid to tackle the unusual flavors as you can see by their product line. We have 3 products that we will be doing reviews for, this B3 is the first. After that we have the Strawberry Sting which marries strawberries and the Trinidad Scorpion to make a very hot fruity product, and the last is Grounds for Divorce which tackles the wonderful flavor of garlic in an Asian style sauce. B3 recently captured 3rd place for fruit-based, consumer ready hot sauce at Zestfest’s 2012 Fiery Food Challenge. Will our review team like it as much as the Zestfest panel did? Our team for these reviews will be Michael Hansen, RJ and the Schobergs. Before we get to their reviews, let us get some background information about this new and up ‘n coming company.

A little about Red Hawk Premium Peppers:

“I’ve been growing hot peppers for over a decade and finally decided to start offering my spicy wares for sale. We have everything from hot sauces to hot pepper jams, spice rubs, dried powders, and even hot pepper seeds.

I pride myself on using growing techniques that have a minimal environmental impact. We use recycled rainwater for irrigation and composted vegetable waste for fertilizer just to name a few. By using organic growing, we ensure the highest quality peppers with the lowest environmental impact.

All of our products are 100% ALL NATURAL with no chemical additives or preservatives. ENJOY!”

    Great reviews by all! Thank you for your honest opinions of the sauce. B3 (pronounced B-cubed) is definitely a non-traditional sauce and that often confuses people. Just FYI – all of our sauces are sold in 5 oz. woozy bottles and not the 1.5 oz. samplers…

    I really appreciate the honesty in all of your reviews. That being said, who in their right mind would put a fruit based sauce on Mac-n-Cheese or even chili for that matter!? Before passing judgement, try some of the B3 (pronounced B-cubed) on some grilled chicken or pork. Granted, fruit based sauces are limited in their usage but their is still a good bit of versatility with this one.

    Once again, thank you to the reviewers for all of your comments. I’m happy to say since I sent you all the samples, this sauce has won 3rd place in the fruit based sauce category at the 2012 Zest Fest in Dallas, TX.

    LOL…the mac and cheese/chili combo is kind Michael’s thing…tru dat though, knowing this, Buddah shouldn’t be sending him fruit based sauces for review.

    I have to agree with RedHawkPeppers. Those were NOT good food selections. If you read the label it says Berries n bananas, Why would you put that on mac n cheese?? Would you put mustard BBQ sauce on Ice cream? Absolutely not! Of course it didn’t taste great! IF you have the opportunity to try these sauces on the foods they were intended for(Grilled pork especially) you’d see that the sauce is actually quite good. It is very versatile and I have even put it on Ice Cream.. Because fruit and Ice cream actually go together. Sorry for the rant, I just really enjoy the Red Hawk line of sauces and I think B Cubed deserves a better reflection of how good it truly is.

    Thank you all for noticing that 2 of the things I test with are Mac and Cheese, and Chili. It’s good to know people are actually watching these things. 🙂 In my defense I try to be fair, and consistent with my reviews. These are good things. I did try it on Ice Cream as my 3rd item and it wasn’t bad. Of course you have to watch the whole video to see that.

    When I think of “Hot Sauce”, mac and cheese, and chili are the two best yard sticks I know of. If it were a wing sauce, I would put it on wings.

    Anyway, I will continue to be honest, fair, and consistent with my reviews. If this is what you are looking for, I appreciate you watching. Thank you to all of you who do watch my videos. I really love the hot sauce, and doing the reviews gives me great pleasure.

    Oops. Sorry for mis-speaking myself. I did try it on icecream later, but that didn’t make it in to the video. Sorry again for mis speaking.

    I would like to say that although I am friends with Dan, I tasted (and continue to taste) his sauces with a completely unbiased opinion. While I may not be a “professional reviewer”, I have eaten a vast amount of sauces. For years I got to where I regularly ate nothing but Heartbreaking Dawns sauce because of the great balance of taste and heat. I continue to eat their sauces as they are great. However, when Dan came out with his sauces, including B3, I quickly converted to almost nothing but RedHawk sauces. The balance of heat and flavor in my opinion is unmatched. Yes, there are certain things that may not work well, like on mac n cheese, but that can be said about ANY sauce. Either straight or on the right dish, this sauce (and his others) are as good as any in my opinion. And, if you haven’t tried Grounds for should!

    I think B3 is Dans best sauce. The only hot sauce I would ever put on Mac and cheese would be a southwestern or Louisiana style sauce. Never a fruit based sauce. B3 reminds me of Johnny’s sauces.
