Weekend of Fire 2009 Review By Shawn Mundell

Jungle Jim’s 3rd Annual Weekend of Fire – A First Timer’s View

This was my friend Shawn’s first hot sauce show, and you can tell, like many of us, he was a “kid in a candy store”. Read on to see how his day went… Brian

The Weekend of Fire.

This was my first hot sauce event and I felt like a kid at Christmas. The first word that comes to mind is WOW. I was just in wonderment of it all.
There were a lot of nice people and good hot sauces, too many to remember. I apologize to everyone I missed.

Weekend of Fire Wrap-up

Third Annual Weekend of Fire at Jungle Jim’s Wrap-up

Since I couldn’t be there in person, I’ve had to rely on my Chilehead friends to get their reports posted online at their respective websites to find out how the weekend at Jungle Jim’s went down.

Here’s a quick rundown of links to the stories about the 2009 Weekend of Fire at Jungle Jim’s in Fairfield, Ohio.
[Read more…] on Food Blog Monday is Dan Mantineo and Todd Youngblood, two friends with a passion for good food. Based in Durango, Colorado, these guys have put together a nice blog of their adventures, complete with their own videos.

Dan and Todd took first place with a few other team members in the local Men who Cook for Women who Wine competition…

Blogging since Feb ’08, they’ve recently posted 5 videos so far, including Standing Rib Roast, Drunken Kabobs, Bacon Wrapped Buffalo Salisbury Steak, and Fish Tacos! They also like to include or feature a beer to go with the dishes.

As many of you know Todd and I are working with the local Kiwanis Club organizing the Smokin 4th BBQ competition to benefit the Boys and Girls Club of America.  This event starts on Friday the 3rd of July and goes until the fireworks start on the 4th.  The event is really coming together.  We are hoping to get 50 BBQ teams competing and 50 – 75 vendors and booths.  We have a guaranteed purse of $6000 and hope to get that number much higher with more competitors.

Check out and tell the guys Brian from sent you!

At Ben’s Chili Bowl Only Barack Obama and Bill Cosby Eat Free

IMG_0994.jpg Ben’s Chili Bowl, in Washington DC, is famous for having a sign that used to read, “Only Bill Cosby Eats for Free”. That changed recently to include the Obama Family too. We recently ate at Ben’s Chili Bowl in DC. It was just after the November ’08 election, and sure enough the sign was there. We went there late on a Friday night, and the pics in the gallery below are the ones we took.

I f you’ve ever been in South Philly, and experienced the whole Pat’s / Geno’s cheesesteak phenomenom, you’ve got a good idea of what Ben’s is like on weekend nights.

This was just as much an experience as it was a dining out event. What a great experience as well as delicious food! Ben’s Chili Bowl is an historic place – entering their 51st year. Located on “U” Street in Northwest DC, it was the lone survivor in it’s neighborhood to make it through the riots of the 1960’s, and survived major construction at it’s steps of the DC Metro.

Flying Goose Sriracha Sauce Part 1

Very excited to get 2 bottles of Flying Goose Sriracha Sauce!

Flying Goose Sriracha Sauce is very scarce in the United States.  I’ve only found one online source from the UK  for it.  I ordered 2 small bottles of the basic sauce.

I’ll update this post after I have a chance to try it and compare it to the Huy Fong brand, which is made in Rosemead, Ca. and of course is commonly available here.

Here’s a close-up of the front label showing the Flying Goose logo and NHAN CON NGONG BAY text underneath.

This is the back label with ingredients:

Chilli: 70%, Water, Sugar, Garlic, Flavour Enhancer (E621), Stabilizer (E415), Citrick Acid (E330), Preservative (E202)

(They have funny ingredients in Thailand… E621? What’s that?)

Left side of bottle describing the product. Yummy!

Finally, the manufactuer’s info: Flying Goose Brand, Sea World Coldstorage Co., LTD.

Chonburl, Thailand

If  anyone knows of a source in the U.S for this stuff, PLEASE let me know!

Stay tuned for a taste test and review.

Melissa is in NYC and writes this great blog about dining out in NYC. Wish I was there!

For a great “short story” about a restaurant experience: Check out her post about a new burger joint in Le Parker Meridien NY. Bizarre and delightful.

On a recent post, she shares her recipe for Kao Soy:

Kao Soy, the northern Thai curry noodle dish that won me the Audience Choice Award at Brooklyn Kitchen’s ramen-off a few weeks ago. A friend passed along a blog that focuses exclusively on this delicious dish – and it includes a map of restaurants that serve it in nyc!

Melissa has a lot of fun posts, so check out her blog and tell her Brian from sent you!
