BEST FOR SMOKE: Khoo’s – The Heavy Smoker
Alex Khoo is obsessed with spice and sustainability. In 2012, he established Khoo’s in Sheffield, using locally sourced chillies to make his own hot sauce. He grows most of the chillies himself in a polytunnel in his back garden and even built his own smoker, controlling the process from pepper to packaging. The Heavy Smoker – a Great Taste award winner – is made with a secret chipotle blend, sweet peppers smoked over whiskey cask oak, hot fresh chillies, prunes and garlic, and works extremely well on tacos, burritos, burgers and scrambled eggs.
