The list for the winners was a copy and paste from what was posted on Facebook.   Chile Pepper Magazine was nice enough to send me the results, but in a format I could not use, so I did what I could do to present you with the list of winners. Please forgive me for any spelling mistakes.  If you need to have me correct anything,  email me at albuddah@yahoo.com with your corrections, and I will get to it as soon as I can.  Congrats to all the companies that won or placed in these prestigious awards.  Keep up the good and spicy work folks!
