NYC Hot Sauce Expo to Celebrate 5th Anniversary!

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASENovember 27, 2016

The NYC Hot Sauce Expo Celebrates Its 5th Anniversary

New York’s own High River Sauces proudly presents the 5th Annual New York City Hot Sauce Expo on April 22nd & 23rd 2017. The NYC Expo will feature up to 45 artisanal hot sauce makers from all over the United States and as far as Australia, Canada, England, New Zealand and South America. The NYC Hot Sauce Expo has grown into an International Hot Sauce celebration. Witness the action packed event with hot sauce tastings, eating challenges, spicy food vendors, craft beer, spicy cocktails and plenty of odd ball entertainment for the whole family.

The NYC Hot Sauce Expo will feature the Bloody Mary Mix-Down National Championship. Winners from AZ, CA & the Portland Hot Sauce Expo’s will be flown in to compete again NYC’s top mixologist in this ultimate Bloody Mary Mix-Down. Winner will receive $2500 cash and the beautiful Stoli Vodka Bloody Mary trophy.

Think you have what it takes to be crowned the Guinness Book of World Records – Smokin’ Ed’s Carolina Reaper Pepper Eating Contest, the World’s Hottest Pepper. The 2016 NYC Expo we witnessed Wayne Algenio smash the record by eating 119 grams in 60 seconds. Now the current record is held by Greg Foster when he ate 120 grams at the AZ Hot Sauce Expo on November 13th. Will the record come back to NYC?

Jack’s BBQ in Nashville on Broadway in Nashville puts on a good show!!


I was a little leery of BBQ in the middle of the “tourist” section of Nashville, but Jacks on Broadway turned out to be a nice hole in the wall with excellent food! Served cafeteria style, I had the 3 meat combo with pork shoulder, brisket, and smoked chicken. The brisket was flavorful, lean, with a great smoke ring. The pork had a little fat, but not much, and while not as good as the brisket, it had good texture and flavor. The smoked chicken breast was moist gave me a nice smoke flavor. Portions were average size – about 4 oz each. The slaw is a nice vinegar slaw with a light tang and not heavy at all. It paired very well with the pork and the brisket. The cornbread was served as 2 small, thin slices and was dense and just okay. 
Jacks serves 3 sauces – original – their take on a tangy Carolina sauce; Texas – a tomato based thick, sweet sauce; and Kansas City style- darker, richer, with a molasses undertone. I wasn’t a big fan of the Texas, but Kansas City sauce was pretty good, with a slight tang along with the dark, rich molasses tone. My favorite was the original, and it’s slightly thinner, tangier but still “sweetish” profiles worked very well with all 3 meats! 

But the star attractions – the smoked meats, were well worth waiting in a line that wrapped outside the door. Thanks, Jacks, for a good meal!! Next time you’re in Nashville check them out and tell ’em I sent you! Why? Because, Ladies and Gentlemen, It’s a Fiery, and flavorful, World!!! 

OMG! What’s Happening to Australia’s Chillies? And I don’t mean Winter’s almost over!

chile peppers anthracnoseAccording to an article in Gizmodo, Australia is having issues with their pepper population! Knowing how much the folks down under like their heat and spice, I’m sure it’s giving their pepper poppin’ populace great pause! (pretty good string of P’s, isn’t it? I’m proud and very easily impressed with myself- but after all, it is Monday so take ’em when you can get ’em!)

If I have your curiosity up, check out the article !!!! Have a great day, peeps, and remember, It’s a Fiery World!!
