    1. Hi Johnny, glad you enjoyed the podcast. We had a great time! This was a great group, and you’re right, the energy was movin’ ’round, literally. It was good to have a round table for the first Round Table! I wonder if we can borrow this for the next one???!!

  2. That was so much fun! Thanks guys:) I loved the out-takes at the end…LOL…Yea Spoons!!

    1. Yeah, the out-takes are awesome. We’ll have to use them more often. Heaven knows we have a lot on file! And many “Thanks” to the lovely Annabelle for taking the photos!

  3. Great show. I really enjoyed it. I would love for y’all to do a Show at the Next Nola Hot Sauce Show. All of Y’all keep up the good work and thank you for keeping people informed about our industry.

  4. Brian and Marilyn,
    Thanks for allowing me to be in the room with the group. I thoroughly enjoyed listening to the guys. I concur, so much energy in the room, I was a witness…… It was a great weekend, can’t wait for the next one.

  5. What a wonderful job you guys are doing on your Hot Sauce Weekly Review!!! Loved your podcast!

    We had the pleasure to meet Brian outside of Jungle Jims on the deck. We are so glad he gave us his blogcard. My husband enjoys making his homemade hotsauce from our garden every year. It’s fun to see him get creative and I love sampling them! Funny thing is….when my husband and I returned from the convention I menitoned that somehow there needs to be a way to give feedback for vendors or people like my husband that are trying to learn what people want in a product. You guys hit the spot on that one! Nice job!

    We hope you enjoyed your trip in Ohio and had the chance to try Skyline Chili…another one of OUR favorites! As a child my Grandparents would treat us to it from time to time and that was when my hotsauce passion grew. How about you? When did you first fall in love with hotsauce?

    Hope to see you next year!
    Jay and Jennifer
