2013 Houston Hot Sauce Festival: Fiber Joe interviews Ed Currie from Pucker Butt


Ed Currie the Mad Scientist himself. I watched this man and his group of misfits blow the heads off of a number of people with his “Carolina Reaper Pepper”. Some threw up, some couldn’t breath, some needed medical attention. The passion that this man has for growing peppers and making sauce is incredible. Just about everyone in this industry knows who Ed Currie is. The man caries around a container of peppers everywhere he goes, and he eats the damn things like they’re candy. I got a chance to hang out with him not only at the show but a few times outside of the show. When you talk to this man about what he does he gets this little evil look in his eyes and rubs his hands together like a mad scientist. It’s a little creepy but at the same time really cool. This the first time I’ve actually had a chance to try the line of sauces that Ed has created. In the video we start from not so hot to holy crap that’s hot.

2013 Houston Hot Sauce Festival: Fiber Joe interviews Big Daddy’s Sauces

Big Daddy Sauce


What can I say about Trevi and Becky Biles… EVERYTHING When it comes to Houston hospitality it doesn’t get any better than these two. The first 5 minutes that I met these guys I felt like I’ve known them my whole life. They both welcomed me and my boys with open arms. Trevi is the bass player for a band called VENOMOUS MAXIMUS out of Houston, TX. He and a couple of his closest buds put on one awesome little concert at the show (you can check some of it out on YouTube). Trevi is also a high school math teacher, I can tell you if I had a teacher as cool as Trevi when I was going to school I probably would have passed math. Now Becky is by far one of the coolest ladies you will ever get a chance to meet. And together the two of them make one awesome couple. Check out the video as we run through their line of kick ass sauces. YOU GUYS ROCK! It was so much fun getting a chance to know you guys, thanks for everything.
