It seems to be the time of month to keep you all up to speed with what’s going on in our little corner of the hot sauce and spicy food world. We’ve got some interesting news and a new promotion to tell you about that some of you should really like. First off, I’m going to let all the locals in on some interesting news. For those of you in the Halifax, NS area we want to let you know about a new sports bar that is opening on Spring Garden Road right across from Park Lane mall. It is called Bubba Ray’s Sports Bar and it should be open by the end of the month. We’re telling you about this because they are going to have a rather large display case of hot sauces (about 40 different products) on the wall at the bar AND they are going to have, bar none, the hottest wings in Halifax. If you don’t believe me, go there and check it out. I’ve been heard they are going to be called “Death Wings” and I think that they will give some of you a challenge. On top of that, you’ll have to! sign a waiver when you order these ones. I’m sure that in the coming months we’ll have some more news to share with you on what will be going on there.
Next, I wanted to let our faithful customers know about a new promotion that we’ve got going on from now until the end of May of this year. Some of you may know that when you’re logged into the online store that you can enter reviews on the products.Â We are going to encourage this for the duration of the promotion by offering up a 3 month Hot Sauce of the Month Club membership.Â For every product review that a customer of the store enters, they will have their name entered once into a draw for the membership.Â In order to qualify the review has actually consist of more than “I like this sauce” or “this sauce is good.”Â Also, you have to be an existing customer of the store.Â So if you are a new customer and buy anything during the promo, come back and let us know what you think of it.Â Those of you that have already ! been through lots of sauce, pop in and let us know what you think and how you’ve enjoyed it.
We’ve been on such a busy streak at the store getting geared up for some promotions and the oncoming BBQ season that we don’t have a recipe this month.Â So I’ll fill you in on some of the interesting things that we’ve been using in our kitchen.Â The Naga Jolokia peppers are still new and exciting to us, and I found that chopping one of the dried peppers and adding it to a pot of chili produced amazing results – the flavor was incredible and the heat wasn’t all that bad.Â For those of you seeking a really hot pot of chili, make sure to add 3 to 4 peppers per gallon.Â If you just want to add this incredible taste then adding one produces a delicious flavor in a chili that most people will be able to handle no problem.Â We’re also a big fan of our slow cooker, and we’ve had several roasts (beef and pork) that we’ve done with either Bone Suckin’ Sauce or Texas Red Lemon Pepper.Â Both of these have become favorites of ours since we’ve added them to the product lineup and if you haven’t checked them out yet you’re really missing something!
We’re looking forward to summer and the end of the ice and snow (and grilling a little more often).Â With Spring here now it’s finally within sight.Â Check back often and see what we’ve got brewing for the onset of BBQ Season.Â Between the newsletters we try to post any other happenings in the blog for the store.Â Feel free to pop in, check it out and add your comments.
