grilled corn on the cob
slather in butter
drenched with Crystal
this is the essence of summer



There is absolutely no finer way to enjoy corn on the cob than with Crystal.



Try it. If you're not completely satisfied...

call me and I'll finish your plate.

Sounds good, I like Crystal better than most hot sauces. Just have to be certain the wife doesn't get any on her corn.

Old fly-over state tip: If you are having a big do, get a couple of quart canning jars, fill with boiling water, melted butter and anything else you want on the corn. One dip and it's ready to eat.

We usually just twirl the corn atop the butter stick.

But I like that idea!

Crystal? If you're not using Texas Pete, you are missing out. Actually, they might not distribute on the west coast come to think of it...

Checked out the website for Texas Pete, but it wasn't very descriptive. It might be similar to Crystal, but it might not. How does it compare to Tabasco?

There are several brands of hot sauce that are close to the "Louisiana" style of Crystal. Tabasco is not one of them. I love Tabasco. If could only have one hot sauce it would be Tabasco. But for corn on the cob, Tabasco is not a good choice.

Eating corn off the cob involves quite a bit of lip contact. For whatever reason, Tabasco is quite hot on your lips. Crystal is not. Additionally, there is something about the vinegary twang of Crystal that takes the cobbed corn to another level.

My question, Hokie, would be is Texas Pete closer to Crystal or Tabasco? If it's closer to Tabasco, maybe give Crystal a try next time.

Texas Pete is closer to Crystal than Tabasco. I much prefer Crystal, seems to have a better flavor IMO.

Texas Pete Louisiana style hot sauce is made in NC, btw. Weak.

I'm just sad they moved the Crystal factory up the river after Katrina...

It is the same style, but this is beside the point.

The suggestion is to try it with corn on the cob.

LOL damn.. now I want to go get some corn so I can experiment with different hot sauce.

By the way.. www.peppers.com is a good place to order from if they don't carry a specific brand at your local store. They have just about every brand, as well as stuff like Chicago style giardinera.. yum!!
