Hahh. I always put my money where my mouth is. Filmed cooking shows...of me and my friends cooking, been talking about food and making it for years...all online. Yes, I realize that many do it. Which is the point. Food brings people together. It should never tear them apart. I love to support the culinary arts and I love to participate in them.
And I guarantee this, no one will ever say about my sauces...they are mediocre. They may not be the best you ever had but they are damn good. That's just a fact.
Mediocre- the very best of the worst, the very worst of the best, commonly known as the cream of the crap.
I think the Captain has not been exposed to the plethora of other sauces we on THP have been lucky to have enjoyed over many years, and doesn't realize what he is up against. He seems to be a BigFish in his little pond of exposure. Might just be a bit of wake-up realizing the hot sauce world is a whole lot bigger than that sand lot.
I am the best selling salsa at my local stores.
Sounds great, right? Ok, bragging rights, until I reveal the local population is less than 4,000 people full time, the pass closes in the winter, they have no other fresh salsa makers, but my locally made fresh salsa outsells the BrandName refrigerated (with preservatives) salsa about 3:1. And that sales is about 100 units per week!
So, me saying I'm the best selling salsa is correct.......but it has to be in perspective.
