HotSauceDaily’s 2016 Gift Ideas

2016-gift-list

We’re doing something new this year… instead of the usual “Best Products of the Year” type post, we’re sharing with you some great gift ideas instead. In no particular order, these spicy goodies would be a great gift for those you love, or even for yourself!

Hot Sauces

Let’s start with our favorite category of gifts… Hot Sauce!

Fuego Box Hot Sauce of the Month Club

Fuego Box of the Month Club

The #1 best selling stellar “… of the month club” for hot sauces, Fuego Box brings you nothing but the best of the best each and every month.

They love hot sauce, but you don’t know what to send to your BFF or weird Uncle Tim? Fuego Box will surprise them each and every month with a selection of 3 gourmet hot sauces. And every month they will be reminded of how awesome you are.

Get one for yourself and you’ll be surprised monthly too.

Moe Mountain Hot Sauce

Moe Mountain hot sauce on tacos

Totally original. Totally tasty. Moe Mountain only makes one sauce. And it is fantastic on tacos!
Featuring apple cider vinegar, cumin and cocoa powders and the Ghost Pepper (Bhut Jolokia)… like they say – “It’s Kinda Hot”. But delicious and not scary hot. Uncle Tim will be fine.

Georgia Peach and Vidalia Onion Hot Sauce

Georgia Peach Vidalia Onion Hot Sauce

We can’t have a shopping list without our all-time favorite gifting hot sauce from Chip Hearn and Peppers.com.

Chicken Wings

America loves chicken wings. Buffalo style, grilled or BBQ, dry rubbed, oriental… you name it.
If I could quit my day job, I would just cook wings every day. It’s amazing that there are SO MANY ways to season and sauce wings!

Wingredient Wings

Wingredients wing rub and sauce

These folks bring on some rubs and dry seasonings that you mix up to make the sauce that your wings will marinate in, cook with, and sauce over your favorite bird parts – wings.

The selection is daunting, but if you start with the basic Wingredient Mix, you will be wing won over!

http://www.wingredient.com/

The Flaming Chicken Wing Sauces

The Flaming Chicken Bayou wing sauce

One of our favorite bottled wing sauces comes from The Flaming Chicken. Tons of garlic and buttery classic wing hot sauce flavors abound. And they have an even bigger selection of flavors since we last tried the Bayou.

Father’s Day Gift Ideas for the Griller – Barbecuer and Hot Sauce Lover

Father’s Day is June 17th, 2012

Ok, folks! Less than 2 weeks until Father’s Day! You know, that “holiday” that’s not quite as important as Mother’s Day, but exists to sell everything from the best table saw to all kinds of greeting cards, BBQ aprons, and ties?

We have some great ideas for Father’s Day shopping. Some of these are our affiliate links, but they cost you NO extra money, and you help support our blog and podcast by using them.

A Few Manly Cookbooks:

Let’s start with a few new and favorite cookbooks…

Ray “Dr. BBQ” Lampe’s newest book “Slow Fire: The Beginner’s Guide to Lip-Smacking Barbecue” was recently reviewed by John Dawson of PatioDaddioBBQ.com – “I recommend the book very highly”.

Even MORE killer rib recipes from Steven Raichlen of The Barbecue! Bible fame. Speaking of The Barbecue Bible!…

This is a MUST HAVE book for any Dad that grills, barbecues, or just burns your burgers once or twice a year. It’s The BBQ Bible!

My very first BBQ cookbook, and still a staple and go-to for all things meat, fire, smoke and grilling. Smoking woods, rubs, marinades – it’s an awesome resource.

Fantastic BBQ book from the famous Mike Mills. Along with daughter Amy Mills of 17th Street Barbecue fame, it’s a great read and great resource. Invaluable!

Big Bob Gibson’s brings our go-to pulled pork recipe, as well as the famous White BBQ Sauce that Big Bob is famous for.

Wrapping up the book category, here’s a few for the Hot Sauce Loving Dad’s in your life…

This is a great book for the Hot Sauce Lovin’ Dad in your family – all Sriracha (Rooster Sauce) history and recipes.

An awesome resource for making your own hot sauces, to cooking with the ones you already own. Author Jennifer Trainer Thompson is a legend in the hot sauce world. We chatted with her recently on our HotSauceWeekly podcast and her book is a must have for chilehead and hot sauce lovers everywhere.

The ORIGINAL Hot Sauce Bible – while a little “dated” it is still a good read, and offers a great historical look at hot sauces. This is history. 🙂

Sauce recommendations – both Hot Sauce and BBQ:

Since Father’s Day falls in June, and we’re all about grilling and barbecuing… let’s start with a few BBQ sauce gift ideas!

Drapers BBQ Smokin Sauce bottle

With probably the BEST BBQ SAUCE ON EARTH that you may or may not know about, Draper’s BBQ is offering a 15% discount on all orders for the month of June (2012). Use coupon code DBQ4DAD on all orders. This includes not only their famous Smokin’ Sauce (BBQ), but the AP Rub (All Purpose), their Moo’d Enhancer (Beef) rub and anything else (check out the awesome stainless steel shaker) on DrapersBBQ.com/shop

A newcomer, D & W’s Blue Ribbon BBQ Sauce, coming in at a class equal to Draper’s, is an amazing, simple yet deep flavored sauce (Texas style). Worth a gift for any Dad that wants more than grocery store BBQ sauce once in a while. Visit http://www.dwbbq.com/ to get that unique BBQ gift!

Anything from Grandville’s BBQ Sauce is a fun gift idea. This BBQ sauce is thick, sticky and very unique. We’ve reviewed their Pineapple Jam recently.

Pork Barrel Fathers Day Gift Pack

There’s a couple of deals going on at Pork Barrel BBQ – the Father’s Day Gift Pack pictured above, or $5 off any order with coupon code FathersDay

Big Ron's Rubs and Sauce

Big Ron’s Rub is offering a FREE bottle of Big Ron’s Award Winning BBQ Sauce with ANY purchase. No coupon code needed!

Doomers Q Sauce Maryland style

We have to wrap-up our BBQ recommendations with our favorite “hometown” Maryland Style BBQ Sauce from DoomersOnline.com – all three of their flavors, Original, Hot & Spicy, and Dark are incredibly good. We reviewed all three here, and swear by the great flavor and quality. A three-pack of their sauces would make any Dad happy! Go for it!

Hot Sauce, Wing Sauce, Dad’s Sauce!:

Here are our Hot Sauce recommendations for great Father’s Day gift ideas…

Defcon Wing Sauces trio

DefconSauces.com is offering 15% off any order with the coupon code JUNE12 thru the end of June 2012. DefCon makes some of the most delicious and flavorful Hot Wing Sauces you will ever have! Ever!

Also, they’re offering a free T-shirt (S-XXXL) with purchase of any 5-pack sampler (and 20% discount applies to that too). We reviewed Fat Cat here, and they were one of our top pics from last year.

Patter Fam Sauces

Patter Fam Sauces Father’s Day Special is their limited edition Bourbon Barrel Hot Sauce at 2 / $20 – that’s half price!
Our Bourbon Barrel Hot Sauce is a limited special release. Regular price is $20 per bottle. We took our award winning Holy Cow Hot Sauce and aged it inside an oak bourbon barrel for six months! The aroma, flavor and texture of this incredible hot sauce will make your mouth water as soon as you open the lid. Each bottle is hand dipped in wax and accompanied by a numbered card to let you know how special this little bottle of hot sauce really is. It is a perfect collector’s gift for the hot sauce enthusiast. We have only one barrel of the sauce, so don’t delay. (5 ounce bottle) Thru June 15, 2012.

Fire Ant Juice

FireAntJuice.com is offering the following: – one free Autographed bottle of the 2010 1st. place Scovie Award Winning Hot Sauce, Fire Ant Juice with any order placed during the month of June as a Fathers Day Special. Just ask for the Fathers Day Special when you order from www.fireantjuice.com We reviewed Fire Ant Juice here.

Happy Father’s Day to all the Dad’s out there!
