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) ;)

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)

Someone just sent me a link to the awards, which he is indeed hosting again. Unbelievable that someone who is alleged to have done what Dana is accused of doing would have the nerve to host an award, as though they were anything but (in my opinion) a pariah in the industry.

Isn't Dana the guy that was promoting the Caboom! documentary about Cajohn? I think I contributed to the gofundme or kickstarter site for that effort. I suppose that money is gone too, and the documentary won't be made. Bummer.

He was indeed. I have no idea what happened to that $. If it was a gofundme the money is likely gone. If it was a kickstarter nothing is donated unless it's 100% funded.

Man, I'd forgotten about that. Sucks.

Update: I want to clarify something....when I suggested the awards lacked credibility, I did so at my own expense. I had a 1st place Award and a division champion award from the 1st year they were hosted.

I hate that I have to disregard those wins.

Also, I would never suggest, imply or assert that the winners of any of these awards were in any way undeserving. I'm sure all of the products that won were of high quality.

In a sense, that's why it is so easy to get away with running a shady awards show. If some sort of corruption is exposed, the people who have the most to lose are the winners. So people remain silent, even if they know their award is from a shady event.

On the bright side of things, I've spoken with a great number of vendors who were able to get their $ back from their credit card companies. Haven't seen the follow up from those who paid with checks.

Thank you for TIP I try to contact them.
 
 

They don't carry non-commercial products. Not sure where you are but in the United States shelf stable acidified products are highly regulated. It is illegal to sell anything that hasn't been made in a licensed commercial kitchen, with products that are FDA compliant and that have been cleared by the health dept.

If we're gonna keep it real like this, we need to add either Taco Bell mild, hot, or fire.


That's a one horse race, with Fire by 14 lengths. ;)

LD, I ordered a squeezable YOTD off heat a few days ago bc I have been on a dumpling bender.
 
To be honest I didn't think that sauces like Franks and Valentina deserve mentioning because they're basically all salt, vinegar and preservatives, but it's a solid list.


I actually think those two validate that it's not a snobby pretentious foodie list - Kenji said it's his 30 favorite.

Who among us doesn't have a bottle of Tapatio on hand? I respect that he's keeping it real with those entries.

Thanks LDHS, I'm very happy with that one. If you're ever up for a sauce swap let me know. I've been dying to give your sauces a shot.


Will keep that in mind for sure - I've got about 100+ unopened right now and it feels a bit extreme hoarder-Ish, but once I whittle down the shelf a bit I'd be down. :)

Thanks for the Spicetme Achievement Award!

Very cool - was on a bit of a limited budget this year, so happy to have placed in 2 of the 3 categories I entered.

Thanks for hosting THP!

Congrats to all the winners!
