Hoff & Pepper, LLC was established in 2015 by husband and wife team Aaron and Michelle Hoffman. “Master of Sauce”, Aaron is the prodigy behind their unparalleled products. After years of experimentation, Aaron’s eureka moment came while in his kitchen, developing the best hot sauce ever crafted by mankind.

Those of you that received my Winter Heat Seeker Box had the good fortune of receiving a bottle of Smoken’ Ghost hot sauce for yourself. I simply had to include it since it’s one of my favorite smoky sauces with a good amount of heat and tons of flavor!

If you like it hot and smokey, you’ll love Smoken Ghost. This award winning sauce adds a healthy dose of ghost chiles and more chipotle pepper to give you a full bodied hot sauce with an extra kick. I love sauces that contain smoked peppers which is why Hoffs Smoken Ghost is one of my favorites. 

When you crack open this bottle, you can smell the red jalapeños first. At first taste you get some tang from the vinegar and that smoky chipotle. The heat from the Ghost peppers really comes in a couple seconds later, and slowly builds. I don’t find this to be an extremely hot sauce. Smoken Ghost is at the perfect heat level for my preference. I like a good mouth burn than hangs around for a while. It might bring out a little sweat on that brow and give you some good tongue tingles. 🔥👍🏻 Excellent on chili, tacos, beef, and pizza, of course.

Ingredients: Red Jalapeno, Habanero, Chipotle, Ghost, Salt, Vinegar, and Garlic

Hoff Sauce is a simple six-ingredient hot sauce that has gained international recognition. Fresh red jalapeños and habaneros create the perfect heat level while chipotle pepper provides a smooth and smokey finish. I guess this would be considered a ‘Louisana-style’ hot sauce, but with the added complexity of the smokey chipotle that’s not typically not found in other Louisana-style sauces. It’s kinda a less hot version of the Smoken Ghost. Like the bottle says, it’s a great everyday sauce. Mild enough for most to enjoy. Hoff sauce is a great sauce for eggs, pizza, wings, & popcorn.

Hoff’s original BBQ adds a touch of Hoff Sauce to bring smoked meats to the next level. Using pure cane sugar and molasses, Hoff has developed the perfect balance of sweet and heat. The heat level on this BBQ sauce is very mild. Since I like my BBQ sauces to have a bit more heat, I simply added in a little more of Hoff’s Smoken Ghost sauce to bring it up to my preferred heat level. The flavor of this sauce is so good. Leaps beyond your typical BBQ sauces. It’s a thick and rich sauce that is great on ribs and grilled chicken. 

Ingredients: Tomatoes, Vinegar, Cane Sugar, Water, Molasses, Salt, Fresh Chiles, Garlic, Onion, Spices, and Smoke Flavor
