Welcome to the club, Jersey Barnfire Hot Sauce! November 29 2014

We would like to give a big THSC welcome to our newest member of the club, Jersey Barnfire Hot Sauce. The Jersey Barnfire Hot Sauce story began with two friends; co-founders Austin D’Almeida and John Sauchelli, when, with their love for all things hot and spicy, decided to try their hand at making hot sauce. They had no intention of selling hot sauce, but when everyone who tried it out wanted more, they brought their delicious and unique hot sauce on to the market, to be enjoyed by everyone.

What makes Jersey Barnfire Hot Sauce so special is their insistence on keeping their products as locally fuelled as possible. Their priority of using almost only local ingredients and suppliers means that not only do the farmers get the recognition they deserve for their hard work, but also those who enjoy their products know exactly where they came from. All in all, the Jersey Barnfire boys are not only great at making hot sauce-they also care about supporting and creating jobs in their communities. They get their main ingredients from local New Jersey producers: Obis One, LLC and Tranquillity Farms . Their affiliates include Black Garlic Love, Hayek’s Market, Tinga Fresh Mexican and Foodshed Alliance-to name a few.

Jersey Barnfire Hot Sauce uses fresh, local and organic ingredients to make up their two delicious hot sauces that are currently on the market.

Jersey Barnfire Original Hot Sauce.

Jersey Barnfire's Original Hot Sauce is a delicate balance between sweet and heat. It‘s made up of local and organic ingredients including peppers, sugar, onions, garlic, tomatoes and a variety of spices.  If you're a fan of the hot stuff, Jersey Barnfire's Original Hot Sauce will become a staple in your household.

Jersey Barnfire’s Black Garlic Hot Sauce.

Jersey Barnfire's Black Garlic Hot Sauce is made up of similar ingredients to the Jersey Barnfire Original Hot Sauce -peppers, onions, tomatoes, sugar, vinegar and various spices with the simple addition of black garlic. As with the Original Hot Sauce, it combines a sweet and tangy taste with its famous heat, but the introduction of black garlic gives it a little something extra. This black garlic, which differs from regular garlic with its richer and earthier flavour, makes for a smoky, rich and thick sauce.

One of the best aspects of these hot sauces is their versatility. They can be used to spice up any of your favourite meals or snacks and utilised as dipping sauces. Because of their sweet, tangy quality and thick consistency they can be used as a delicious marinade for any meat you usually like to throw on the grill - steaks, burger patties, chicken , chops, you name it!

 

Jersey Barnfire Original Hot Sauce and Black Garlic Hot Sauce are on sale now for $7.49.


Hot Sauce of the Month Club August 30 2014

Well we're finally there. We're ready to launch The Hot Sauce of the Month Club!

It's been a long road to getting this fully underway. Those who've been with us since the beginning would remember this is why we started it all: to provide a creative solution for hot sauce addicts who want the highest quality hot sauce but often don't have the time/ability to track down the best stuff each month.

It's also been great to hear from local suppliers every week. We've been introduced to a wide array of inspiring small teams, often family and close friends who have taken their passion to the next level. Over the coming months we very much look forward to introducing you to these great people and their fantastic hot sauces.

Have a look at our catalogue to get a feel for the types of hot sauces we'll be featuring moving forward. We've put a lot of time and effort into picking the brands we list on our site and the Hot Sauce of the Month Club will be no exception.

We look forward to taking you on a spicy journey through some of the best boutique hot sauces currently available. If you'd like more information on our club, please click here.

Let it burn friends!

Award-Winning Humboldt Hot Sauce Joins The Hot Sauce Club August 30 2014

We’re thrilled to announce The Hot Sauce Club is now stocking the multiple award-winning Humboldt Hot Sauce!

Humboldt Hot Sauce skyrocketed into hot sauce fame after cleaning up at the 2014 Scovie Awards. They won first prize in the All-Natural category for their Island Style Sauce and came runner up in the Habanero Sauce category with their Habanero-Mango Sauce.

It’s been an astoundingly quick rise to hot sauce fame for this California based team. Humboldt Hot Sauce was officially launched in 2010 by two long-time friends and hot sauce connoisseurs, Cal Ferris and Daniel Bixler. In this short space of time, they’ve managed to make a name for themselves in the hot sauce industry by producing some of the finest sauces going around.

Humboldt Hot Sauce uses fresh, locally sourced ingredients to create tasty hot sauces free of powders, preservatives and other genetically modified ingredients. The sauces could be described as Caribbean influenced: a high viscosity (ie. thick) with an emphasis on fruits and fresh flavors, coming in three different levels of heat.

The green Emerald Sauce emphasizes lime, cilantro and ginger, while the red Habanero-Mango really brings that spicy punch. The Island Style rests comfortably in the middle, and is the most traditional Caribbean-style sauce.

The defining moment in Humboldt’s short but exciting history was the 2014 Scovie Awards. For those unaware, the Scovie Awards is arguably the most prestigious hot sauce tasting competition globally. Hot sauces are blind tested by a panel of industry professionals including executive chefs, restaurant owners, culinary instructors, food critics and other industry leaders.

To win first place in the All-Natural category and second place in the Habanero category is a huge achievement and it’s a clear indication that Humboldt are establishing themselves as a leader in gourmet hot sauce production.

If you want to try some best-in-class sauce then these are a MUST. It’s now available right here at The Hot Sauce Club for only $9.89 + shipping. Enjoy!


The World's Best Hot Sauce Store & Community August 30 2014

We'd be lying if we said we didn't have big plans for The Hot Sauce Club. When we originally launched, we did so for one major reason: to make it easier for hot sauce fans around the world to source unique, award-winning spicy condiments without having to spend hours on the internet or scouring food fairs each month. 

Since launching we've noticed just how many people out there there are like us - addicts of hot sauce, deeply immersed in the world of spice and loving every moment of it. Hence, we've since decided to push this website beyond a mere store for buying great hot sauce. It's our long term goal to make The Hot Sauce Club the number one place on the internet for hot sauce lovers - a sanctuary for you to find stories, recipes, products, merchandise and more on all things hot sauce.

If you check out our About Us section, you can hear more from us on our ideas, where we've come from and why we think we're good at what we do (without trying to brag too much!). We'd love to hear your thoughts on any of these topics if you have some (just email us at hello@thehotsauceclub.com). Alternatively, you may have some ideas and that's great too. THSC only exists because of you - the fans - so please do get in touch. We love talking to people from all walks of life who love hot sauce. Together, let's rule the world!

Let It Burn!
