Porktacular Bacon Hot Sauce Giveaway

While exploring the internets, I found a blog called eatnlisten.com that is sponsoring a giveaway that bacon lovers might want to take note of.  They're giving away six bottles of Bacon Hot Sauce to people who subscribe to their emails or retweet stuff.  Looks like the drawing will be done randomly on February 9th.

Yeah, honestly it seems like there are some hoops to jump through in order to enter. I guess you have to retweet a whole block of hashtag text to enter or provide them with your email address. I have no experience with this particular website/organization so I do not know HOW they'll use your email if you subscribe.  Best bet would be to read their privacy policy.  The uh... interesting site design of eatnlisten seems to point to it not being a very large organization, so do with it as you will.

On a more awesome note, this find DID introduce me to Bacon Hot Sauce. The stuff looks pretty awesome!  They have a site where you can buy it as well as find recipes to use it.  I like it when a company actually gives you good suggestions on how to use their product!

Look at this one on their site (www.baconhotsauce.com/pages/recipes):
Strawberry Bacon Hot BBQ Sauce

  • 16 oz ripe strawberries, capped and quartered
  • 1 cup diced sweet onion
  • Juice of one lemon
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/4 cup Bacon Hot Sauce
  • 1 cup ketchup
  • 1/2 cup molasses (unsulphered)
  • 1 packed cup light brown sugar
  • 1 tsp dark cocoa powder (substitute 1 oz dark chocolate)
  • 1 tsp dried spearmint
  • 2 tsp Kosher salt
  • 1 tsp fresh ground black pepper
Yeah, that looks yummy.  Okay, I'm sold, let's see what it's made of and how much this stuff costs.

The ingredients page says it's made of Water, Distilled Vinegar, Cayenne Pepper, New Mexico Chili, Salt and the standard not-too-bad preservative stuff that you have to put in this kind of product.  So, a basic cayenne sauce with a bit of chili... and bacon. 

The products page reveals that it's only $5.99 a bottle, which is not bad for an independent handcrafted hot sauce.  BUT, when you start to checkout you'll see that shipping is five dollars!  Damn.  Okay, I'm ordering it anyway.  This had better be some really good eleven dollar hot sauce, you guys!

I'm assuming that if you order the three pack the shipping would be more reasonable, but I want to make sure I like it before I do that.  As soon as it arrives I'll make something with it and post a review!

If you have tried it and would like to share your opinion, please feel free to post your review in the comments.
