Tango Spice Company Awards
I was looking forward to seeing Tango Spice Company and their line of products. Allen had a great chat with owner and fellow New Yorker, Tango Joe. They discussed some the spice blends and which one was best with venison. I was interested in their spices since I saw them listed on the New York City Hot Sauce Expo site under Vendors months ago. We plan to use their spices in future blog posts. They have a nice variety of spice blends to kick up all kinds of dishes-vegetarian, meat, poultry and seafood.

It was nice to meet the folks from PuckerButt Pepper Company based in South Carolina. PuckerButt had a varied selection of hot sauces, spices, pepper mash and were selling pepper seeds from South Carolina.

As Allen was trying a sample of Tom's Roid-Rippin' Hot Sauce he told him to "Let One Rip." Tom's offer a full line of sauces among them "Ouch My Roids" Habanero Sauce. Tom's also have a Sweet BBQ Sauce which was great and made me crave some chicken wings.

The Murph's Famous Bloody Mary Mix
The Murph's Famous Bloody Mary Mix
Allen sampled The Murph's Famous Bloody Mary Mix and liked the bold flavor. This mix did not taste like most watery tomato juice based ones you find in your local supermarket, since it is made with tomato paste. This is a much better choice the next time you make a Bloody Mary.

Deano's Jalapeños

Deano's Jalapeños
Deano's Jalapeños are the best jalapeño snacks Allen ever had. Allen has bought many different jalapeño chips, but none come close to the flavor of Deano's Jalapeños. These award winning chips are made with pure canola oil and are gluten free with no trans fat or cholesterol. Deano was a real nice guy and has a great product on the market.

Dirty Dick's Hot Sauce
It was a pleasure to meet Richard Westhaver and taste Dirty Dick's Hot Sauce. After Richard gave Allen his business card, Allen asked him "Are you Richard?" and he said, "Yep, that's me Dirty Dick." I had to laugh! Dirty Dick's was one of the Screamin' Mi Mi winners.

Big Fat's Hot Sauce

It was nice to meet Jeremy Walsh, President of Big Fat's Hot Sauce from Niles, IL. All the samples Allen tried were tasty and very hot. Big Fat's got your number according to whatever heat level you like.

Ojeda's Cherry Habanero Hand-Crafted Hot Sauce
The minute I saw Eddie Ojeda I was wondering what he was doing at this expo. I know him from many years ago when he was my guitar teacher for a time (I sucked at guitar playing and quit trying after a year), and am a fan of Twisted Sister. Eddie told us he just returned from touring South America with Twisted Sister. Ojeda's Cherry Habanero Hand-Crafted Hot Sauce was great and very hot. The heat was a bit too much for me on its own, but Allen thought it was just the right blend. I plan to use it in a dessert recipe and will feature it on the blog soon. It was great to get pictures with Eddie and he also autographed my bottle.

Rippin' Red Sauces
It was nice to meet John Rizzotti from Rippin' Red Sauces and taste his awesome wing sauce. He also does Ojeda's Cherry Habanero Hand-Crafted Hot Sauce with Eddie. Both sauces rocked!

Volcanic Peppers

Volcanic Peppers have an impressive line of Pepper Seasonings (many extremely spicy), hot sauces, BBQ sauces, rubs and pepper dust. This variety is sure to heat up your kitchen. The dried pepper dust is great for adding a special kick to recipes.
