In OZ we can get the usual hot sauces, cholula, tabasco, periperi. But we don't have any good American style vinegary, buttery hot sauce. So give me a list of your favourites and if theres a website I can order them from so I can try them... Cheers

I put crystal on nearly everything... It's not very hot... which you can augment with some ghost chilis but... it's so damn tasty I go through a bottle almost weekly or biweekly...

Don't know if it's "American style" but this has quickly become one of my favorite brands:

I like the Sherry Rum Peppers Sauce, my girlfriend prefers the original. If you like a Gibson, the Admiral's Onions are amazing.

I don't know where I got the American style idea from I suppose i just thought hot sauce and thats what popped into my head, I suppose its just a cliche like that shrimp on the bbq bull**** you always hear about aussies. Or that people from NZ root sheep.....

Are you thinking of something like Frank's Red Hot? I love that stuff.

Sriracha is also popular here.

Edit: Frank's is more tangy than hot. Sriracha can have a little burn to it.

Crystal is kinda like tabasco, on the thin side.
My go to regularly available sauce would be franks red hot.

Lots of good pepper flavor, low on the vinegar.

If you are really into hot sauces this is your place. It used to be my regular grocery. Jungle Jims. They have a whole isle(both sides) and a full display under a fire truck full of hot sauces.
