#1503656 Bringing hot sauce/condiments when eating out

Posted by Lucky Dog Hot Sauce on 06 November 2017 - 04:27 PM

I am conducting a survey to see if people do in fact bring their own hot sauce to the restaurant and how they do so. 

 

 

For as long as I can remember. Before I started making sauce, I'd bring one of my favorites along to BBQ or breakfast so I didn't have to use Tabasco or Cholula. ;)

 

I'll take a shot at the survey.

Enjoy your accolades, very well deserved.

I made the recipe again today - yummo. I also made a version with coconut rum & Year of the Dog - pina colada prawns. Awesome.

That's awesome, Scott! I'm really, really happy for you, man! I've only had your Black Label and YOTD, but they're both truly outstanding hot sauces, dude.

You're an inspiration to all of us hobby sauce makers. I mean that wholeheartedly

Congrats, brother!

:party:

 

 

Thanks Mike! That means a lot to me! 

:)

LOL...I do a lot of racing..Second is first loser or so they say..Seriously I hear ya..And congrats again..


I get it - Im competitive as heck too.

In Fiery food competition its not quite as cutthroat - some of the categories are chalk full of amazing products, so its an honor to even place among them.

But for sure winning the Grand Prize #1 overall among Hot Sauce, BBQ sauce, candy, condiments, drink mixes, snacks, rubs, wing sauces, jerky, etc is preferred. I just thought never in a million years would that happen. :rofl:

Congrats!! Winning is everything... :onfire:  :dance:  :onfire: ...Way cool.. :high:

 

 

Well, winning is nice, but not everything. I'm happy the judges liked the sauce, but customer feedback is better than any award win. ;) 

 

Thanks though!  :)

Hi All! 
 
I'd been having trouble with my log-in, and I kept getting locked out, getting frustrated, drinking a beer and forgetting to try again.  :P
 
I'm excited to announce that the 2018 Scovie Awards were announced last Friday & Year of the Dog won #1 overall for the tasting division to win Grand Prize, Tasting Division! 

 
 
The Scovie awards have long been a challenge for me - while I've had success in the THPAs, Golden Chiles, Chile Pepper Magazine, awards, I've never done better than 2nd place at the Scovies. It's a deep field of competition and while Dia del Perro won a Grand Prize for Marketing division in 2016, 1st place in any category of the tasting division has eluded me over the years. 
 
This year that all changed. 
My first award-winning recipe!
Tequila-Lime Prawns, ala Year of the Dog: 
  • 1 C Tequila
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • Juice of 4-5 limes
  • 4 OZ Lucky Dog Hot Sauce Year of the Dog 
  • 2 Lbs prawns, shelled, de-veined & butterflied
     
Add all ingredients (except prawns) to a 1 gal zip-lock bag & agitate until emulsified. 
Clean & shell the prawns, de-veining & butterflying them
Add prawns to bag, and brine 3 hours. 
 
2 cook methods, both work! 
  • Skewer with metal BBQ skewers & cook over open coals. 
  • Sauté in oil on flat-iron 
  • Cook until golden - agave/honey will caramelize. 
2 ways to serve: 
  • Over rice, with steamed veggies & a light teryaki sauce for a Mexi-Asian fusion stir fry
  • In warmed corn tortillas, with shredded cabbage, Mexican creama & a crumble of coteja cheese, using Year of the Dog as a finishing sauce for Asian-Mexi fusion tacos. 
Enjoy!

It's been an amazing journey, and THP has certainly been a big part of it. While I haven't had a ton of time to play on the forums lately (and couldn't figure out my damn log-in for a few weeks) I still lurk occasionally. heh 

Thanks to everyone here for your friendship & support over the years. 
 
Much love (and hot sauce) 
:metal: :fire:  :beer:

#1447837 Wow, this site is GREAT!

Posted by Lucky Dog Hot Sauce on 17 April 2017 - 10:51 AM

Shocked by plant nudes, I've reported this site to the Googles as "adult content"

And JT sent me photos, chilling, horrible photos of skin that has clearly never seen the light of day.

As a result I've lowered my Yelp! Review to 1 star.


#1447590 Wow, this site is GREAT!

Posted by Lucky Dog Hot Sauce on 16 April 2017 - 12:01 PM

I was promised nudes. Never got nudes. Imma Yelp about it.

2 stars.


#1447589 Kind bars - Roasted Jalapeño

Posted by Lucky Dog Hot Sauce on 16 April 2017 - 11:59 AM

Yeah that pomegranate one is nasty. Very perfumy. I tolerate some others but don't really love any. Dark chocolate nuts and sea salt, possibly best. The glucose crap sticks to your teeth and tastes like sugar water. Nothing I need.
 
If you buy the ones in the box; "Kind Healthy Grains," they are not as heavy... they have rice in them (so lighter and crunchy), and for me, are better for snacking.


The dark chocolate nut bars are like crack dipped in heroin coated in powdered cocaine.

I'm just sayin - healthy or not, it was super tasty.

Year of the Dog Thai Pineapple sounds interesting.

 

Do you supply any shops in the Saint Louis Mo area?

 

No, not at this time. You can order from my site at www.luckydoghotsauce.com

Thanks for all the shout outs everyone - really appreciate it. 

 

Can't believe I couldn't crack JayT's top 5.  :mope: Might be time to adjust my FB friends list.  :shame:

You can't go wrong with any of his sauces they all taste great. They might not be the hottest sauces around but you can't beat the flavor. All his sauces allow you to still savor the food you are eating without overpowering it with extreme heat. If you wan't more heat and retain the flavor then just add some of salsalady's drops of pure evil rofl............

 

With the updated Black Label, no additives are needed. It's plenty hot.  Just won 1st Place Extra Hot & 1st Place Hot/Extra Hot Pepper Blend at Zestfest  (AKA Golden Chiles) ;)




#1436933 Attention Hot Sauce companies - scumbag alert

The fact that there's a 5 star rating on FB is awful. And they tend to attract new companies (since most of the existing companies know what happened in HOU)
