NOT for lightweights when it comes to hot sauces! This perfect blend of habañero and ghost peppers is rich and smooth with a big bite! The roasted vegetables in this one makes it truly awesome on tacos, wings, and loads of other stuff!
Chef CHUBBY GIVES 10/10!!!
Today we’re finishing off the series of bottles from our friends over at @sonofajohnsauce based in #Tallassee, Alabama with their Smokin’ Ghost. 👻
This sauce was a real head scratcher for us and made us question our hot sauce gauging abilities for a minute. When you crack the cap, it doesn’t smell terribly hot. Upon sampling it, it didn’t taste very hot.
The distinct delay on this sauce took our review from a “mild” to a “scorcher” 🥵 though as the heat takes a minute to get there, but once there it doesn’t let go. Started like a Corolla and finished like a Ferrari. 🚗
A few dabs of this sauce would take your next Bloody Mary to new heights.
🔥FLAVOR: 4.3/5 - It knows what it is, and has a traditional hot sauce flavor with the usual accu tramontes - #carrots, #onions, #tomatoes. The simplicity of ingredients gives a very smooth sauce that could play well with many different recipes.
🔥HEAT: 4.5/5 - The initial heat sits around the level of a habanero, but after a few short moments you find yourself dealing with the business end of the #ghostpepper.
🔥AFTER BURN: 4.6/5 - Tingling lips, fiery breath, and the pepper sweats provide a hauntingly good finish to the heat.
🔥BOTTLE LABEL: The ghost is on the bottle, which means you’ve been warned.

Ghost peppers and Habanero peppers go into this one along with carrots, red onions and tomatos. This sauce hits on all of the vegetables listed in the ingredients. I immediately taste the tomato and the carrots which give the sauce a nice roasty vegetable taste. The heat is ramped up from those Ghost and Habanero peppers, they come on strong adding a high level of heat but not off the charts. It hits the throat and tongue and stays for a bit after eating it. I can taste the salt here but I'm not at all getting the vinegar, I wish that was a bit more prevalent as it's a flavor that I enjoy more than most.
I tried it straight from the bottle. It has a beautiful dark orange color, definitely due to the carrots and it pours relatively thick. I added it to an egg white omelet and there's a roasty, smokiness that adds a ton of flavor.
Thank you, yet again, @sonofajohnsauce for an awesome sauce that I'll be happy to have in my arsenal.*
Heat 8/10. Flavor 7/10.

Thoughts: You get the roasted veggie flavor right away but ooof that heat hits ya! Habanero and Ghost Pepper in here. My lips tingle for a while after. I love that burn though and the roasted veggie flavor is a nice balance. This has vinegar in it but I didn’t get too much of it, which I always love! This paired really well with the crispy fish. I loved the different textures. It would also be tasty on pizza or a quesadilla. Addicted to that heat. Love the tingle. Son of John got me again! If you haven’t already get yourself some Son of John! I’m obsessed!
Son of a John Smokin’ Ghost:
Starts out with a slight hint of carrot off the top. With a good salty and garlic flavor. Medium heat from the ghost and habanero peppers. The sting isn’t overwhelming but it does linger for a while. Very pleasant sauce. Good all around. 8 of 10.
