As if most of you lacked a reason to attend a hot & spicy industry show, you officially have a reason to plug at least of one of those into your social calendar. This news released to us today is some truly exciting stuff, especially if you are a hot sauce collector. Check out this info:
Hot sauce has come a long way since the battlefields in Korea, where it was used primarily to disguise the horrid taste of rations. Today, hot food fanatics assemble in droves around the country, at world-class festivals and contests, in search of the perfect fiery food. Columbus’ own John Hard “CaJohn” leads this movement and has spent the last eleven years perfecting America’s most awarded line of hot sauces and salsas marketed by his company CaJohns Fiery Foods.
This year, CaJohn partnered up with Mike Martin, owner and operator of Engine House 13, a rock poster and design studio specializing in screen-printed limited edition concert posters and handbills. Martin has worked with many of the Rock & Roll World’s biggest names, and his corporate clients include Jagermeister, Adidas, Coors & Mopar. Martin’s company sells the original poster art he creates around the world. As expected, their work ethic and creativity caught on fire.
To celebrate their collaboration, they will be debuting their signature line of limited edition Engine House 13 Brand hot sauces August 2-3 during the Weekend of Fire at Jungle Jim’s in Fairfield, Ohio. The kicker: each CaJohns tour event will offer an original signed and numbered poster celebrating the event. Good luck finding one! The second poster launch is set for ZestFest 2008 in Ft. Worth from September 5-7.
200 signed and numbered 6-bottle sets featuring Classic Martin artwork will come with original handbills of the posters that represent each show. An additional 1000 numbered 3-pack sets will come with randomly assigned collectible memorabilia from both Martin and Hard.
The posters, (200 signed & numbered) will be available at events where CaJohn exhibits. This year’s tour includes: Jungle Jim’s Weekend of Fire, ZestFest, Houston Hot Sauce Festival and the National Fiery Foods Show. Posters and bottle sets may be purchased during and after the shows, as well as on www.cajohns.com  and www.enginehouse13.com  (no pre-sales).
If this were not enough to hold your breath, CaJohns will be launching a limited edition Martin label makeover of Scorch, one of the world’s hottest natural pepper sauces. Furthermore, look for something extra special this February at Martin and Hard’s hometown Fiery Food Festival! Every time a new set is introduced, Martin will be revamping an existing CaJohns hot sauce label. 1800 of each of these will be numbered and signed.
Engine House 13 and CaJohns are sure to set the fiery food world ablaze.
It’s safe to say one of those posters will definitely be coming home with us!!
