REVIEW: Black Swamp’s X-Hot Rub & Jerky Spice

This is the 4th review we have done for Black Swamp Gourmet. So far the reviews have been very strong in the positive column. This might be the next big company people will be talking about in the chile community for a very long time. They have been loyally showing up at shows in Ohio, but maybe it is time for them to cross the border and see whether they can survive one of the other big shows across the country. May I suggest coming to Bowers, PA Chile Festival or the Houston Hot Sauce Show. Solid shows that won’t be too much of an investment, but bring the attendees that like to buy. The review team seems overly joyed by them, so I think the rest of the country, perhaps the world needs to see what they are all about. Before we get to their last product review, here are the other 3 reviews if you wish to catch up:

1- Hot Cracker Spice Mix
2- Hot Barbecue Sauce
3- X-Hot Barbecue Sauce

    Black Swamp, is the photo (shown here and on your site) the same product we were sent? The name is different. My wife and I are addicted!

    Thank you Al, for your comments and all of your efforts on our behalf. We will be giving the shows that you suggest a closer look and some serious consideration. Thanks once more Derrick, Steve and RJ, for spending your time with our products and for all of your comments good and bad. (We do try to rate the heat level of our products for the average consumer.) Derrick, we did change the name of the product from Jerky Spice to X-Hot Rub and Jerky Spice. (The original name was confusing to people.) But, it looks like we missed updating the picture on our website. (We will get on that!) BTW, you can use ANY of our spice rubs for Jerky. (The basic difference will be the level of heat that you get.)
    Thanks again everyone!

    Thanks so much. I am going to be ordering some more of this very soon! I am also taking it to work and making sure co-workers eat it (and hopefully buy it!)
