¡Fin de semana de ganadores de la competencia de Salsa del fuego y de un tarro LIBRE de salsa a USTED!
Esta competencia del salsa comenzada algunos meses detrás y soy orgulloso ahora anunciar los 4 salsas finales juzgados para competir al fin de semana del fuego en el mercado internacional de Jim de la selva el 1 al 2 de agosto. Cuando digo compita, qué significo soy que USTED que el chilehead conseguirá echar su voto para decidir al último ganador en esta competición de ser declarado el salsa total superior y para cosechar las recompensas que vienen con él. Más en las recompensas en un momento, pero me dejan explican cómo USTED consigue decidir el sino en este desafío del salsa.
Cualquier persona que va al fin de semana del fuego conseguirá muestrear los 4 salsas. Usted tendrá una balota a votar, y si usted menciona que usted la oyó aquí, usted conseguirá un tarro LIBRE del salsa que usted vota encendido mientras las fuentes duren. Esto es solamente para el primer día, el sábado 1 de agosto, porque el domingo el 2do, nosotros anunciará a ganador.
I would like to thank all the wonderful companies who participated in Jungle Jim’s 1st salsa contest. Not everyone can win, but I found out how many great salsas are out there to be had. As you will see by the winning salsas below, it doesn’t matter what region you are in, a good salsa can come from anywhere and by anyone. When we do this again next year, we might have even stiffer competition and a lot more salsas to consume. I do not think I have ever had so much salsa in a 2 month period than for this contest. It was worth it though. Thanks goes out to Jungle Jim’s for letting me organize this for you and to my judges, (Scott Roberts, Joe Bowen, and Joe and Linda Levinson) who did an awesome job deciphering who had the best salsa. A special shout out to Bret Vitek who was the brains in making this possible. Thanks Bwana!
Here are the finalists in no particular order:
1- Big Orson’s ‘Citizen Cajun’ Hot Mango Habanero Salsa (Georgia)
2- Marco’s Not Yet Famous Medium Roasted Vegetable Salsa (Maryland)
3- Chuck Evan’s Montezuma Brand Smokey Chipotle Lime & Garlic Salsa (Ohio)
4- Santa Fe Seasons’ Grilled Garden Salsa (New Mexico)
These skilled salsa makers will have 5 cases(60 jars) of salsa purchased from them by Jungle Jim’s International Market for the show. The public will decide who wins the grand prize. What is the grand prize you ask?

The Weekend of Fire show is a fun show, that I have gone to the last 2 years. Once the Saturday show is done you can march around the corner and witness the infamous Defcon Championship Deathmatch, (aka chicken wing eating contest for extreme chileheads). Whether you think you have the chops to participate or just want to watch the torture, it is fun for all. The Creator and his lovely Createss do not disappoint the crowd with this entertaining extravaganza. We will also have a huge dinner planned on Sunday night once all the booths have been taken down and stored safely in the vendors’ vehicles. Everyone is welcome, chileheads and fiery food makers alike. Last year we dined with about 30 people and had a ball. On Monday, we travel north to CaJohn’s Fiery Food Factory where there is an open house and a bbq feast for all who attend. No one has won more awards in this industry than them and you can see first hand how the factory is run and ask the man behind it all- CaJohn- anything.
I hope you put this on your calendar for things to do this summer because you won’t be sorry. Well, it all depends on how much hot stuff you consume to determine whether you will be sorry or not. Please visit the Jungle Jim’s Weekend of Fire website for additional info and pictures from last year.
