The General's Dead Red Hot Sauce: (6 oz./180 ml)
The General's classic signature product. Perfect for buffalo wings, but great on pretty much everything else. Made from Louisiana-grown, fully ripe red cayenne peppers hand-picked at exactly that right time, and then salted down and aged until the mash is perfect for conversion and bottling. An all-natural product that is almost 90% cayenne peppers, this sauce packs a truly authentic, fresh cayenne flavor that will be very different when compared to other sauces that typically have a stronger concentration of vinegar.
Cut it with some butter to make wings (The General suggests 75 sauce/25 butter).
Depending upon each growing season’s weather patterns, heat (1-10) will range between 6-7.
This sauce won’t melt your brain, but depending upon your palette, you may need to reach for a cold beverage.
Note: This product is made by a Veteran owned company and all Peppers are grown in the USA!

About the company: Smoke Hall Foods L3C, the veteran-owned, Louisiana-based parent company of The General’s Hot Sauce, was conceived by its founders at the 2012 Army-Navy football game tailgater in Philadelphia (yes, Navy won that year). Inspired by a close friend who actually serves as a general in the military, hails from Buffalo, and loves to make wings for his friends and family (and shall remain anonymous until the end of time—we’ll never tell), the company launched with a simple mission:
- Honor The General by producing the highest quality American-made, all-natural, small batch cayenne hot sauce possible, using the very best ingredients and process, and borrowing tactics from the bourbon and wine industries. Simply put, the world does not need another average hot sauce. It just doesn’t.
- Support the American farmer by growing all our peppers in the U.S. We think you should be able to trace every pepper back to the acre of land where it was grown.
- Serve the greater good by creating jobs for veterans, and by donating a meaningful percentage of our profits back to organizations that support our troops, veterans, and their families
- Build an honorable company that we can all be proud of, and have as much fun as humanly possible as we do it
