Q-ing With Your Average Joe – Nov 2015

Fiber Joe

Hello all you happy people….

GOBBLE…GOBBLE, everyone! Welcome to November. Here we are a couple of months away from a new year. I’m not sure about you guys, but I can’t wait, mainly because a new year brings the 28TH Annual Fiery Food Show here in ALBQ. Since I live close by, I get a chance to see all of my amazing friends, and of course I get to put on the 4TH Annual Fiber Joe BBQ. Like I said, one of my favorite times of the year can’t wait to see you all.

So this month I thought I would do one of my local favorites,

Xero reviews Deano’s Jalapenos Bits- Cheddar Bacon

deano's jalapeno bits cheedar bacon flavor

Xero wanted to share his thoughts on the popular snack treat for spicy foodies around the world, Deano’s Jalapenos. If you have not heard of Deano’s Jalapenos by now, then you are missing something very special. A deep-fried jalapeno snack covered in either cheddar, ranch or sea salt, now has a new flavor for the masses – bacon cheddar. Last year, Deano’s launched their new Jalapeno Bits, which had a much better marketable than the mystery bag that he sells the full chips in. As you can see by the pic above, it comes in a clear shaker type of plastic container which allows you to pour them out or sprinkle them onto food or into a recipe. Customers can see what they are getting before they purchase it. The biggest benefit is that they are easier to get out and you no longer have to reach your hand into the bag and get messy trying to secure your remaining pieces. These bits make a great salad or soup topper. My favorite use so far is in a green bean casserole. Check out my recipe HERE if interested. Below the video is the website and contact information.

REVIEW: Demitri’s Rim Shots (Bacon!!!)

We have reviewed 2 of Demitri’s Bloody Mary Seasonings over the last 2 weeks, and because of some computer problems we are skipping the next seasoning and going with a review by Derrick Wood on Demitri’s Rim Shot & Bacon Rim Shot which are salt rimmers for drinks. I have never heard of a bacon version before these reviews. Fiber Joe and Dale Gilbert, the other 2 reviews have included their thoughts on the Rim Shots along with their other reviews, sampling them as they go. Derrick wanted to do a separate review, so this is what we have. The first video is the original one just called Demitri’s Rim Shot, and the 2nd- and I am sure the one most people will watch- is the Bacon Rim Shot. The last 2 Bloody Mary Seasoning reviews have been big hits, so you might want to check them out if you are a true Bloody Mary fan.

REVIEW: Demitri’s Bloody Mary Seasonings – Classic Recipe

I love when we do different types of spicy products with our reviewers. Since is that type of product, and by the sound of the reviews this company might be the next great thing in Bloody Mary Mixes. Besides this Bloody Mary mix, we have 4 others that we will be posting over the next few weeks – Extra Horseradish, Chilies & Peppers, and Chipotle-Habanero. Along with that you will hear a little about their 2 rim salts they call “Rim Shots”, one with Bacon and the other with a spiced blend to accent the Bloody Mary mixes. I gave the reviewers some freedom in how they wish to review the Rim Shots, so you will get some feedback as we go with how they work with the Demitri’s Bloody Mary Seasonings.

Scott Takes on KFC’s New Double Down Sandwich

Giving in to the hype of being an egregiously unhealthy menu item, my buddy John Nemec and I couldn’t resist and we each grabbed one of KFC’s Double Down Sandwiches for lunch yesterday, which also happened to be the first day of it’s chainwide releases. He videoed me while I gave my first impressions:

If you’re unfamiliar with the concept, Kentucky Fried Chicken basically took a sandwich with pepper jack…
