Feast Your Eyes on This Spicy Cooking Challenge 2013- Round 5

Round 5

We are about to announce the winner and loser for Round 4 and set the ground rules for Round 5. We then have our final 4 set with only 1 more round to go after this week. We have a lot riding on this challenge because the top 3 are guaranteed to win at least $100. The loser of round 5 walks away with nothing but our admiration. Round 5 is sponsored by Heartbreaking Dawns and giving the winner of this round a $50 gift card. HBD has brought the ultimate assortment of Award Winning products to the industry. With a variety of products ranging from dry rubs, grilling sauces, spicy preserves and of course hot sauce, they’ve been cranking out nothing but hits! If you haven’t tried their products yet, some of the must haves are the original Fiery Trail Preserves, the 1498 Scorpion Sauce and the Original Classic Gold. This year they are breaking into onsite food, with a pop-Up Baltimore Pit Beef venture exclusively at Brooklyn’s Smorgasburg event. If you are attending the NYC Hot Sauce Expo, this is right next door and Johnny is planning a Chilehead’s Dream Sandwich Special for that weekend. Head on over to their website by clicking on the picture below and use the code “hbdfan” for 20% off your order!

    I don’t like olives? News to me. But according to Al, I don’t like cilantro or bacon, either.

    Well everyone knows about your bacon issue by now, but I do not know about your cilantro issue. I will note that for next round. 😀 Is it olive oil then? I know you wrote a list about it once.
