In the most recent round of updates, we've added an option to the "Add a Sauce" page, to allow submissions that aren't being reviewed. This was added in response to sauce makers wanting to add their own product. If you are a creator / producer / manufacturer / distributor / or you just have the bottle and want to submit it, follow these very simple steps to add your product to our Hot Sauce List.

  1. Log in to your existing account, or register for a free account and click your e-mail verification.

  2. Visit the "Add a Sauce" page. When it gets to the part about the review, you will have an optional checkbox to exclude the review portion.

  3. Your submitted entry will be reviewed by an admin, and once it is approved, it will show up on the site and you will receive an email notification.

That's it. You'll be able to include the ingredients, where it's made, types of peppers used, official description, SHU, ingredients, photo, etc. If sending along a photo, please make sure that it is high resolution, so that a proper crop and label thumbnail can be created.. If you have any suggestions or corrections to an existing listing, don't hesitate to drop us a line via our contact page.
