Then you know the drill. When folks contribute, you gets what you gets. We had combos of everything from snappy tom to generic juice. We lined up each bucket in line with each ingredient and just....guessed. Many types of hot sauce, from cholula to tapatio to tobasco. Perhaps that was part of the ma...
