Hi Folks,
    I have just made a homemade hot sauce which is hotter than the 
commercially available hot sauces that i have tasted (i have not, 
however, tried dave's or endorphin yet).  I am hoping that by providing 
the recipe, someone could give me a guesstimate as to how hot they think 
this sauce is in comparison to such famed sauces as Dave's or Endorphin 
Rush.  Thanks!!
