Ladies, gentlemen and chileheads everywhere! Lend me your beer!
It’s New Year’s Eve, and this site must finish 2014 on a high note!
It’s the spicy year in reviews! This is the post that will outline where we’ve been, where we’re going and ask the question:
“Where on earth is John Scrovak?!”
Most importantly, this post will announce the EMH reviewers’ picks for Product of the Year 2014! Let’s start with a summary of the past year…
September brings much joy to my life: football season is upon us, and fall is just around the corner! Then I remember that it’s actually already October, and everyone is going to go pumpkin crazy. From pumpkin lattes to pumpkin cookies to pumpkin-scented bathroom spray, it’s everywhere this time of year. Personally I have never been a big fan and haven’t understood the crazy obsession with all things pumpkin, but seems to be everywhere these days. I just don’t get it, but maybe the latest from Race City Sauce Works Owem G. Willikers label will change my mind.
Many products in the spicy food market make bold claims. Of those, the vast majority are hyperbolic, cartoonish, or simply downright false. Nevertheless, I take each one seriously until proven otherwise, especially when a product straight-up warns me not to eat it directly, which is precisely what Red Tail says. If you don’t know us well by now, you need to know that the EAT MORE HEAT crew is fond of eating hot sauce straight out of the bottle. Our fearless leader, in fact, used to chug the stuff on camera. This isn’t an extract sauce, so how bad could it possibly be?
It may be the end of my summer, but that doesn’t mean barbecue season is over. After all, here in Texas, barbecue season lasts for approximately 365 days. That said, tonight’s featured product is a barbecue sauce that threatens/promises to bring the heat in the best way possible. For your viewing pleasure, I’m checking out a ghost pepper BBQ sauce made by the folks at JB’s Sauces, an Ohio-based small artisan company that claims to have “the hottest BBQ sauce out there.” I’ll be the judge of that! I mean, that’s my job.
