Wildcat sauce

Does anyone remember a sauce called Wildcat sauce? It was hot, sweet and sour, and was sold by Smoky Mountain Secrets. The company and the sauce no longer exist.
If anyone recalls it, please tell me if you have ever found anything else like it.
The ingredients were hot sauce, sugar, vinegar, crushed re pepper, chili powder, salt, mustard, soy sauce, allspice, black pepper, celery seeds, garlic powder, onion powder, curry powder , caramel color, "spice" and the preservative, sodium benzoate.
The family loved it, and I bought a case, but we are down to the last bottle.

  1. I googled Wildcat Sauce and got a hit. Check out this website: applecandy.com. They carry a product called wildcat sauce. Not sure if it's the same, but probably worth a call..

      I have bottle of the wildcat sauce, hot pepper sauce, and wine & pepper sauce all 3 have never been open.

    2. I remember it very well. I think I still have a couple of unopened bottles.

      I Googled Smokey Mountain Secrets and the company aparently sank beneath an accumulation of legal troubles, mostly caused by unethical fundraising practices.

      I just emptied a bottle this evening, and was using it to find out if the company was still around. I don't think they are.

        Would you please help by giving me the ingredents from the label?
        It would be greatly appreciated.

            Hi--I found your post on Chowhound and just wondered if you ever came up with a recipe for Wildcat Sauce? I just finished my last bottle,
            Thanks, Caro Wells

              Unfortunately, no
              I have lost my sense of smell (which is what taste really is), and can't begin to recreate the recipe.
              I listed the ingredients in an earlier post. Maybe some kind and talented chowhounder could attempt to approximate it

              I have 3 bottles which I am hoarding

        2. I called the phone numbers on the bottle today. Both are out of service. I guess I'll have to try to duplicate it.

          1. But it didn't have any 'wildcat' in it??

              Don't be silly.

              It isn't made FROM wildcat, it's just a sauce FOR wildcat.
