This is the one "processed" food I am having trouble giving up. I usually go with Franks or Crystal which are peppers, vinegar and salt and Melindas for spicer kick which contains xantham gum but no other crazy ingredients. As I get more and more paleo my biggest concern is the salt. I have moved to pink Himalayan salt for everything and I'm sure the salt they put in these sauces is not even legit sea salt. I have tried my hand at making some hot sauce on my own but it never is as satisfying. Usually too much vinegar flavor/not enough salt I think. Anybody have some good home made hot sauce recipes that they love?

Personally I use crystal and don't think twice about it. I've made my own through using pickled peppers, turned out great (may be even better than crystal), but it takes multiple days, and I want hot sauce ready when I want it.
Here's some refrencese for you:
