Menu Highlight – Ghost Pepper Hot Sauce
Looking to add a little spice to your life? Wondering how to heat up your favorite Garry’s Grill dish? We suggest our ghost pepper hot sauce. Ghost Pepper, also known as Bhut Jolokia, has the notoriety of being a very hot pepper. How hot you ask? It can be 417 times hotter than a jalapeno. So, proceed with caution. For the adventurous soul, this sauce will improve an already fantastic meal. When used correctly, it imparts just the right amount of heat and flavor.
Origins of the Secret Recipe
We make our ghost pepper hot sauce in house. The perfect (and heavily guarded) recipe was created, through a little trial and error by owner Eddie Conway and GM Nick Bordenski. Nick is a self-appointed hot sauce fanatic and guru. He loves it…the hotter, the better! He and Eddie experimented (once to the chagrin of a full dining room) until they came up with the perfect balance of heat and flavor. Overall, it took about a year and a half to create Garry’s Grill Ghost Pepper Hot Sauce.
While we cannot reveal all of our ingredients, we will tell you that we begin with the very best peppers. Bhut Jolokia peppers are imported from India and are one of the hottest on the planet, reportedly 400 times stronger than Tabasco sauce. All ingredients are fresh; we never used additives like pure Capsaicin extract. Our sauce heats up without it!
Ye Be Warned
The actual process, overall, from start to finish takes about four hours to complete. Toasting and cooking the peppers does create a semi-toxic condition. Therefore, we only make the sauce when the restaurant is closed! Folks love the sauce, and will put it on anything. We have recently begun bottling and labeling the sauce, to include a warning label. While it is delicious, we need to say again; this ghost pepper hot sauce is HOT, HOT, HOT! Did we mention it is hot?
The next time you order up our breakfast tacos or a delicious Diablo Burger add a dash of Garry’s Grill Ghost Pepper Hot Sauce. A little goes a long way. And, dare we say, one taste will change your life!
