Of course this sauce is also delicious on eggs, sandwiches, breakfast potatoes, traditional Mexican food, pizza and just about anything else – the fruit notes are extremely subtle on most dishes. Garlic, onion and peppers dominate this unique and versatile sauce. Pink Label hits hard with flavor while building up in heat.

Lucky Dog Hot Sauce was my hobby for 7+ years. In 2005 I started developing recipes in my kitchen & on the back yard grill. And in June of 2012 I turned it into a small business due to overwhelming demand. I simply could not keep up with all of the people who gobbled it up so fast! Every batch I made, I’d have none left for myself – which was kind of depressing since that’s why I started making it in the first place. So now I’ve found a commercial kitchen to work with and I’m making a lot of it! My goal is simple: always innovate, never imitate.
How I started:
My mission is to produce the most balanced, flavorful and versatile hot sauces possible, with emphasis on local sourcing. Lucky Dog hot Sauce is designed to be used on almost everything, and to appeal to all tastes from moderate to strong heat yet without overpowering food.
I have great respect for those who cook well and/or appreciate a good meal. The best compliment to Lucky Dog Hot Sauce is that people choose to use it liberally on their favorite dishes.
I believe in flavor above all else, which is why Lucky Dog Hot Sauce is created with savory fire-roasted hot peppers, sweet carrots, tangy vinegar, fresh onions, assorted dried peppers, and heaps of roasted garlic. The lightly smoked varieties add subtle fruit notes to the mix, creating balance and layers rarely experienced in the hot sauce world. This nuanced approach brings a complex taste with respectable heat in attempt to raise the bar for what a hot sauce can be. Lucky Dog Hot Sauce is truly Food’s Best Friend!
