Torchbearer Sauces
I spoke to my friend Vid of Torchbearers Sauces and he told me about the new BBQ and hot sauce products they have so be sure to try them out. The Torchbearers booth was jam packed. Torchbearers brought a limited run of 6 test sauces to the Expo: Thai Curry Sauce, Blueberry BBQ, Oww My Garlic, Z Wing Sauce, Raspberry Chipotle, and Coffee BBQ Sauce. Torchbearers make one of the hottest sauces in my pantry called Zombie Apocalypse. I am also a big fan of Oh My Garlic Sauce, as it is so versatile and goes well on almost everything, and I always have a bottle on hand. I love that many of their products come in larger bottles so you get more sauce for your money. They also have great gift sampler sets. The new Coffee BBQ Sauce is outstanding.

Burns & McCoy Sauce Company
From Fort Collins, Co Burns & McCoy Sauce Company was a new vendor to the Expo this year. They have an impressive lineup of various sauces; I was very impressed with their labels and branding. They have some exciting items like Tomatillo Jalapeno Salsa and Exitium Pineapple Ginger Hot Sauce. They also won a first place Screaming MiMi Award in the Caribbean category for Exitium.

I checked out the King and his line of impressive sauces and rubs. The King was all decked out in full "Elvis" regalia. It was a sight to see indeed. I will order a rub and BBQ sauce from the King to cook with and review this summer. Glad to see "The King" in NY.
