710 Dat’s My Sauce – Datil Pepper Sauce

710 Dat’s My Sauce

Datil peppers and their flavor show up here in two of our favorites from 2014. And while not extremely popular, mostly due to lack of knowledge of the pepper, the Datil pepper is a delicious and unique flavor that everyone should try.

Sweet in its own way, it can pack some punch, or be muted and very mellow.

710 Dat’s My Sauce is a great start to your experience with the Datil pepper.

We put this rub on wings and decided it made the best dry rubbed wings we had in 2014. Again, the Datil pepper shines with flavor and heat here, in a dry rub format.

Old Florida Style Datil Pepper BBQ Rub is an amazing dry version of the Datil pepper flavor!

High River Sauces Launches New Rattler BBQ Sauce

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE – November 18th, 2014

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.

Rattler Barbeque Sauce

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.
