Chef Chris Santos, judge on Food Network’s popular “Chopped” series and chef and partner of Beauty & Essex and Stanton Social, collaborates with Steve Seabury of High River Sauces to launch Rattler Barbeque Sauce – the barbeque sauce with a bite!
Showcasing the bold, fresh flavors that the award-winning hot sauce company High River Sauces is known for, Santos and Seabury have created a custom-made barbeque sauce with the perfect amount of sweet heat. Rattler Barbeque Sauce features spicy Cascabel Chile Peppers, which, like the rattlesnake, are known for their distinctive bite – the name Cascabel actually translates to rattle.
The intrinsic smokiness of this complex pepper is paired with vine-ripened tomatoes, rich molasses, robust coffee, as well as organic honey and raisins for sweetness. This unique combination creates a dynamic, well-rounded barbeque sauce that pairs well with anything from pulled pork and burgers to glazed grilled salmon or as any addition to your favorite foods.
The sauce debuted at the Fancy Food Show on Sunday, June 29th and will be available online and through retailers in the coming weeks. Please visit www.santoscooks.com or www.highriversauces.com for more information.
Both Chris Santos & Steve Seabury will be cooking up some grub this Sunday, Nov 23rd promoting the new High River Sauces Rattler BBQ Sauce on DirecTV’s NFL Sunday Ticket Fantasy Zone starting between 4-5PM EST.

About High River Sauces:
High River Sauces was created in 2011 by spicy food junkie, music industry veteran and cookbook author, Steve Seabury. His cookbook, entitled Mosh Potatoes (Simon & Schuster), showcases his obsession with good food and love of heavy metal music. This passion drove him to create one of the most buzz-worthy hot sauce companies in the country. In his short time in the fiery foods industry, Seabury has garnered numerous accolades including four coveted Golden Chile Awards. After traveling across the country showcasing his hot sauce, Seabury was inspired to create the NYC Hot Sauce Expo. Now in its third year, the expo has quickly become one of the biggest spicy food events in the world with over 10,000 attendees in 2014. High River Sauces is currently in over 500 grocery and specialty foods stores in the United States, as well as internationally, and has been featured on the Cooking Network, Good Morning America, Fox News, CBS News and other national media outlets.
