Fireside Chat June 2011

Welcome to our version of the off topic thread. This is where you air your grievances, ask questions, give answers and just talk about other things not covered within the other topics. Please keep it reasonably clean because we never know what kid might stumble upon our little website and read what is written within. Otherwise, have fun and make yourselves at home.

For those of you that do not know, our very own Mer just relocated from Sunny California to Snowy Wisconsin. While we wish him well, Sean decided to give him our version of a house warming gift with the picture above. Good luck with the new job and location bud! Same goes with Firehead Thomas who just moved from Virginia to Louisiana. Thomas all ready had a cartoon, and Mer was overdue, but we wish him and his beloved Annabelle best wishes as well.

    Betty and I tried a couple new sauces at Buffalo Wild Wings last night. One is “Southwest Smokey” which had a little heat to it but not much smokey flavor. The other is “Captain Morgan”, this was my favorite of the two sauces. No heat at all just a good flavor. Reminded me of Cajun Island Blackened Bourbon Sauce. Not sure if these sauces are regional or what but give em a try if you get the chance. They were both really good.

    I only go to BWW to watch out of market football games…lol

    I actually hated both flavors. I thought the Captain Morgan tasted like baked beans, and got sick of the taste pretty fast. I think the BWW sauces are some of the worst of any chicken wing chain. The best are just okay, nothing special.

    was at the farmers market yesterday and Betty wandered off for a bit. She come back with a couple nice looking bhut jolokia plants. she told me what she paid for them and I went over and bought the rest of what he had. I figured for a buck a piece if they don’t make it, I’m not out much. They all look quite healthy.

    I love BWW, in one of my food management magazines last year had an article about BWW sauces, They stated that they were the no 1 selling hot wing sauce…it’s all in the individual taste buds that makes a product good. 😉

    😕 i need a “blech” smiley. There are so many sauces on their list that can be replaced with better sauces from all the great Mom & Pop companies across this great country of ours, and beyond. I do not think they product test their stuff. It seems to go from their kitchen right to the public with little effort made to perfect it.

    I have to disagree. Im a big fan of BWW and their sauces. Their Mango Habanero is one of my fave sweet hot sauces. I love Sam & Tina, but I have to say that Z&Z would be lucky if they have a sticky, honey-based wing product like B-Dub’s Mango Habanero amongst the sauces they produce.

    Their Spicy Garlic is excellent, and their much-bashed Blazin’ is one of the most flavorful extract/extreme wings sauces around. Nothing can match Defcon and Ott’s in regular buffalo sauce land, but their lineup of Mild/Medium/Hot/Wild sauces are above average IMO. They do have a few clunkers like the Teriyaki, Asian Zing and Parmesan Garlic though.

    It’s a great place to watch the Vikings or Rams lose.

    I havent been to the Alamogordo farmers market in years. The last time it was three guys with really sad looking tomatoes. Maybe I will give it another try.

    There was a post on this new company called TATS sauces but I can’t find it. I was wondering if you could do a video review on them? You can get their sauces on Amazon, free ship if you order $25. I might use my amazon points from swagbucks and get a bottle if its any good.

    Huh? I meant can he do a review of TATS sauces so I know if they are worth buying from amazon.

    Jen, we get products donated for review by the companies wishing for it. Unless I get wowed by something at a show or some chips at a convenience store I usually do not do reviews of products I buy. I will tell you though that I liked 3 products enough to buy from them after I sampled them at the Fiery Food Show in March. Those are…
    1- Showdown- Mild bbq sauce
    2- Fully Loaded which is a really nice twist on a Mexican sauce using chile de arbol peppers.
    3- Black Dahlia which has this awesome cherry flavored bbq sauce with ghost chile heat.

    I hope that helps. I am out for the evening but will respond later if you have anymore questions.

    Thanks. Yeah, I remember you saying you really liked them. I’ll probably get the Black Dahlia. Would the Fully Loaded one be good on wings? I’ve got $29 sitting in my amazon account so I might grab both.

    I think the Fully Loaded is more for anything Hispanic food.

    Oh, okay. I’ll probably just get the Dahlia then. Thank you for your help.

    Jen, all 3 sauces are filled with flavor. They might not be what you would want for a wing sauce, but they are quite tasty on their own.

    Thanks, I ended up ordering the Black Dahlia and a Boysenberry Chipotle sauce, I bet that one will be awsome. I love sauces with different fruits that you don’t see every day.

    I hope you enjoy them. Come back and let us know. I drop a note with TATS, so maybe they will come by and answer some questions for you.

    OK, I’ll let you know. I also got two kumquat bbq sauces from Kumquat Growers website, one spicy and one mild. I can’t wait to try those. I usually don’t like the peel, but they said it was a very fine puree, not like kumquat marmalade which is big chunks of the peel. I tried marmalade once and it was so bitter.
