A tangy and incredibly smoky Birds Eye Chilli sauce made using traditional smoking methods. When we first tasted this, we assumed it contained smoke flavouring, but Dr Trouble smoke all their chillis in custom-built box smokers. It still blows our minds every time we taste it!

Makes an amazing glaze for chicken and is delicious poured on poached eggs for brunch!!

Suitable for Vegans.

About Dr Trouble
Dr Trouble Chilli Sauce is a limited quantity, small-batch, artisanal sauce, produced on their own northern Zimbabwean farm. Dr Trouble sauces are unique in that they use fresh lemon juice instead of vinegar. The lemons are picked from trees in the tribal lands in the Zambezi Valley of Zimbabwe, providing a vital source of income to rural people living in one of the most isolated parts of the world. Their cayenne and birds eye chillies are hand-graded to ensure only the finest quality. They roast their chillies vigorously in a flame-filled chilli roast oven, slightly charring the pods to concentrate and bring out the subtle flavours.


Dr Trouble Sauce is batch fermented in custom-blown glass flagons for up to 100 days, under the abundant African sun using salt sourced from the Botswana salt pans, unique for its exceptional flavour.

In 2014 we came to the realisation that the sauces we were buying weren't doing our food justice. What started in a home kitchen, is now a team of 34 food lovers producing thousands of bottles of sauce on a weekly basis.

Big on flavour

If you want something a bit different than your usual chilli sauce give this one a go , big on flavour smokey with a zing

Definitely is, we loved the smokiness when we first tasted it

Great smoky sauce

bought it originally on a whim, just ordered a couple more bottles. Very nice sauce, definitely doubles down on the oak smoked, pretty mellow on the chilli. Great sauce with..pretty much anything. Keep up the good work!

We really love this one, and the other sauces we tried from this brand!

Chris Secker (Liskeard, GB)
Over Smoked

I personally love trying new sauces and this one took my fancy as I enjoy the smokey taste in foods, but for me this one is far to Smokey, there are great other flavours hidden in the sauce but the smoke taste overpowers it

Gohn Jilleese (Cheadle, GB)
Definitely smokey!

Very smokey and full of flavour, start with a little to get your balance right. It's also got a bit of kick from the lemon juice but that calmed down when it was in with the rest of the ingredients.

Tamara Barschak (London, GB)
Fabulous zingy citrusy chilli sauce

Absolutely addicted to this wonderful zingy, citrusy chilli sauce! It’s full of flavour and a small dose of it with almost anything results in a mesmeric carnival of taste in your mouth.if you’re a fan of Chilli sauce and like citrus flavours I highly recommend you try it!!

Us too! Thanks for the review Tamara

Geoff Gibson (Manchester, GB)
A little too smokey

Not going to lie, this bottle will be finished very quickly, but the taste is very over powering if you want to also enjoy the flavour of the food it is added to. Very Smokey flavour, so use sparingly. Would suit a very meaty dish I think, perhaps even as a dip.

Hey Geoff, you're right it is a really smoky sauce - we were amazed but we loved it. I guess it's what you're into and like you mentioned, what food you have it with.

Chill sauce

Unusually acquired taste, super smoky , in the end I like it but have to be in the mood for it, perhaps best to use as marinade

Richard Bunting

Amazing smoky flavour! Used as a marinade, and basting sauce for barbecued chicken. Absolutely delicious! Highly recommended!

Thanks Richard! We were really surprised by just how smoky it is when we first tasted it, we love it

Jo (Wellingborough, GB)
Bloody lovely!!!!!

Second order of this this sauce for my husband.

His words when I asked him to review this were simply:-

'Bloody lovely!'

Probably says it all!
