Boone Pickens Stadium began as Lewis Field in 1913, named for Laymon Lowery Lewis-one of them more popular figures in early OSU history. The facility is the oldest football stadium in the Big 12 Conference and one of the oldest on-campus college football stadiums in the country, but was neglected and enjoyed few renovations throughout its existence. Then a wealthy alumnus aided in an effort to revamp the rusting stadium. The renovated stadium reopened in 2009 for the Cowboy’s game against Georgia.
Stadium Location: On Hall of Fame (street) in between Washington and Duck, on campus. The stadium is one of the few to run east-west.

What Is and What is to Come
An incredible amount of hype brought us into the 2012 season following what was the greatest season in Oklahoma State history following an 11-1 record, a Big 12 Championship, and a Fiesta Bowl win over Stanford The departure of quarterback Brandon Weedon and wide receiver Justin Blackmon to the NFL draft left large shoes to fill. The initial loss to Arizona in the second game of the season brought everybody back to reality in a rather sobering fashion. We had a rather significant quarterback battle between sophomore Clint Chelf, and two highly touted freshmen in JW Walsh and Wes Lunt. In the end coach Mike Gundy chose a rotation of the three leaving all three quarterbacks with over 1000 yards passing for the season. This also may have caused the quarterbacks to never really find a groove. The team finished 8-5 for the season with several very close losses against Texas, Kansas State, Baylor and Oklahoma. Three of their 5 losses were by less than a touchdown. The quarterback battle for this season has yet to be decided but it appears Wes Lunt was not chosen and has since decided to transfer out of the Oklahoma State football season. Returning two reasonably experienced quarterbacks and a large part of the receiving corps should leave Oklahoma State able to compete with the rest of its Big 12 competitors. The first game of the 2013 season is against Mississippi State, an SEC team, in the Texas Kickoff Classic.

132+ Teams in 132+ Days: SMU Mustangs

Southern Methodist University American Athletic Conference
Nickname: Mustangs Logo: Always running to the right! Year Founded: 1911 (school), 1915 (team) Location: University Park, Dallas, Texas Total Attendance: 10,928 (6,221 undergrad) Mascot: Peruna Live Mascot: Peruna IX Cheerleaders: Pic 1 / Pic 2 / Pic 3 / Pic 4 / Pic 5 Stadium: Gerald J. Ford Stadium Stadium Location: On Campus, 5800 Ownby Dr Conference Champions: Southwest Conference (11) - 1923, '26, '31, '35, '40, '47, '48, '66, '81, '82, '84 Bowl Games: 15 games (7-7-1) National Titles: 1 title (1935)
  • TCU (Battle for the Iron Skillet): Separated by 40 miles and sharing the same metroplex, SMU and TCU will meet for the 92nd time this season with the Horned Frogs holding a 45-40-7 edge in the rivalry. The matchup has been extremely one sided one way or the other for some time, with SMU winning 15 straight games from 1972-1986 followed by TCU winning 17 of the past 23 games. The past two games have been close, with SMU winning 40-33 in overtime in 2011 and TCU handing SMU a 24-16 loss last year in monsoon-like conditions. Bonus pranks for your entertainment: TCU field desecration (1999), SMU stadium vandalism (2011).
  • Rice (Battle for the Mayor's Cup): With SMU leaving Conference USA this season, it will be the first time since the 1920's (excluding those two years in the 80's that I'm sure I'll touch on later) that these two teams won't face each other and the first time since 1918 that they won't be in the same conference. SMU leads the all-time series 48-41-1 throughout 90 meetings, although Rice holds a 9-6 edge since the Mayor's Cup was introduced in 1998. The Owls are in possession of trophy after a 36-14 beating of the Mustangs last season.
  • Navy (Gansz Trophy): While they have only met 16 times in their history (Navy holds a 9-7 edge), this travelling trophy was created to honor Frank Gansz, who played center and linebacker for the Midshipmen before a long and illustrious coaching career. He was serving as SMU's special teams coach when he passed way from complications following knee surgery in 2009. The Mustangs have not faired well in these games lately - some low-lights include setting our field on fire with pre-game fireworks (2002) before getting destroyed 38-7 and a 34-7 loss in 2008 in which Navy didn't even bother attempting a pass.
  • Houston: Wouldn't call this game a true rivalry, but these two teams seem tied at the hip for the immediate future with both joining the American Athletic Conference this season. SMU has not done well against Houston lately, but had a resounding 72-42 victory in 2012 after 6 straight losses. Most SMU fans are still bitter from a 1989 contest in which Houston ran up the score in a 95-21 victory against a team of freshmen, but those same freshmen would have their revenge 4 years later by knocking off the Cougars 41-16.
2012 Season
Record: 7-6 (5-3) Coach: June Jones (31-34 in 5 seasons) Key Players:
  • Garrett Gilbert (JR QB): 268/506 (53.0%), 2932 yds, 15 td, 15 int. Big things were expected out of Gilbert going into the 2013 season but he seemed to struggle throughout the season. Hard to say how much of it was on him, a revamped offensive line or the inconsistency of the receivers. Towards the second half of the season he started to scramble more which was very successful. The team will rely on him even more going into his senior season.
  • Zach Line (SR RB): 277 att, 1278 yds, 13 td. After missing the final 3 games of 2011 with an injury, Line picked up right where he left off, picking up major chunks of yards in passing formations. By the end of the season he had tied Eric Dickerson's school record of 47 career rushing touchdowns and was named Conference USA offensive player of the year. With his graduation, this will be the biggest question mark for the Mustangs going into next season.
  • Margus Hunt (SR DE): 31 tkl (11.5 tfl), 8 sck, 1 int, 2 ffbl. Perhaps the most interesting player to ever suit up for the Mustangs, Hunt was an athletic marvel - at 6'8" 227 lbs, he recently did 38 reps at the combine and ran a 4.60 forty yard dash. He made a name for himself early on blocking field goals and extra points, finishing with 17. He absolutely destroyed Fresno State in his last game, with 3 tackles for loss, 3 sacks, 2 forced fumbles and a safety.
  • Taylor Reed (SR LB): 97 tkl (14.5 tfl), 6.5 sck, 3 int, 1 ffbl, 1 frec, 2 td.
  • Ja'Gared Davis (SR LB): 77 tkl (11 tfl), 4.0 sck, 2 int, 3 ffbl, 1 frec, 1 td. Both of these guys have been impact players since they were freshman and it's going to be a little different to see next year's defense with them missing. Reed led the team in tackles for the past 3 seasons and was named to the 2nd team CUSA defense while Davis was named to the 1st team CUSA defense.
Biggest Plays:
  • Furious Tulsa rally stopped just short: Tulsa came to Dallas with a perfect 7-0 conference record and was headed to the CUSA Championship game. SMU was 5-6 and needed a win for bowl eligiblity. The Mustangs stormed out of the gate, jumping all over Tulsa to the tune of a 35-6 late 3rd quarter lead. Tulsa reeled off 3 straight touchdowns and got the ball back with 46 seconds left, but a last second desperation heave was stopped just a half yard short and SMU escaped with a 35-27 victory.
  • Garrett Gilbert darts up the middle for 74 yards, touchdown: From the same Tulsa game, Gilbert showed off his legs on this play. Normally in the Run and Shoot, you would ask your quarterback to sit back and pick the defense apart with his arm, but if they aren't going to bother putting any players in the middle of the field, you might as well take advantage.
  • Margus Hunt says 'Aloha' to Derek Carr, Fresno State: Back in 2009, SMU went into the Hawaii Bowl as a heavy underdog to Colin Kaepernick and the Nevada Wolfpack. After a 45-10 dismantling, you would think people would learn not to bet against June Jones in Hawaii, but SMU found themselves in the same situation last season against Fresno State. Margus Hunt made sure the Mustangs' dominance on the Big Island continued, toying with the Bulldogs' offensive line in a 43-10 romp.

The out of conference schedule is a bit daunting with two Big XII teams and one SEC team, and this is after Montana State was added in favor of Baylor. The conference schedule is a bit more forgiving, as the one team SMU will not play in 2013, Louisville, is considered to be among the favorites to win the conference. SMU has a brief history with Temple and UConn but has never faced Rutgers, Temple, Cincinnati or USF.
2013 Roster
The Greats
Greatest Games:
  • 1935 vs TCU: SMU (10-0-0) and TCU (11-0-0) matched up in 1935 with the Southwest Conference title and a trip to the Rose Bowl on the line. The Mustangs jumped out to a 14-0 lead but TCU came back and tied the score at 14 going into the 4th quarter. With 8 minutes left in the game, SMU lined up for a punt on 4th and 4 on the TCU 37 but instead heaved a ball towards the end zone which was caught by Bobby Wilson. SMU would win the game 20-14, and the trip to the Rose Bowl netted the school $85,000 which they used to pay off the mortgage on Ownby Stadium.
  • 1949 vs Oregon (Cotton Bowl): SMU won their first Cotton Bowl behind legends Doak Walker and Kyle Rote, beating PCC Champion Oregon and Norm Van Brocklin by a score of 21-13. Walker had a 79 yard punt in this game while Rote added a 84 yarder. The two teams combined for almost 500 yards rushing and 250 yards passing in an offensive showdown.
  • 1980 at Texas: The Texas Longhorns came into this game a heavy favorite but SMU would turn the tables on them in the debut of the Pony Express. Lance McIlhenny would get his first start as a freshman and did not disappoint, leading the Mustangs to a 20-6 victory. The win propelled the Mustangs to an 8-3 record and a trip to the Holiday Bowl, and set off a dominating 5 year stretch in which SMU went 49-9-1.
  • 1983 vs Pittsburgh (Cotton Bowl): SMU was coming off back to back SWC titles and facing a loaded Pittsburgh team led by Dan Marino. Pittsburgh was leading 3-0 in the 4th quarter when SMU marched down the field, finishing off the drive with a keeper by QB Lance McIhenny for the only touchdown of the game. SMU would finish the season ranked #2 in the AP Poll (just behind Penn State), finishing with a record of 11-0-1.
  • 2009 vs Nevada (Hawaii Bowl): 20 seasons after the end of the Death Penalty and 25 seasons after their last bowl appearance, the Mustangs found themselves in Hawaii taking on the Nevada Wolfpack. SMU entered the game as an 11 point underdog and was picked by nearly everyone outside of Dallas to lose the game, but QB Kyle Padron blistered the Nevada secondary for 460 yards and 2 touchdowns in a 45-10 rout. It made for an awesome Christmas.
Greatest Plays: - 1935 vs TCU (The $85,000 Pass): See Greatest Games. - 1982 vs Texas Tech (Miracle on Fourth Avenue): SMU entered the game ranked #2 in the nation with a perfect 9-0 record but needed a "Miracle" to escape Lubbock with a win. Trailing by 3 with 4 minutes to play, the Red Raiders drove down the field and kicked a field goal with 17 seconds to go to tie the score at 27. The ensuing squid kick was fumbled by SMU before it was picked up by Blane Smith, who threw a lateral across the field to Bobby Leach. Leach raced up the sideline for a 91 yard touchdown return, clinching a share of the SWC title (they would win it outright the following week with a tie against Arkansas). - 1983 vs Pittsburgh (McIlhenny Touchdown): See Greatest Games. - 1989 vs Connecticut (Miracle on Mockingbird): 1989 saw the return of football to the SMU campus and their first win came at the expense of the Huskies. Trailing 23-7 at halftime, the Mustangs started to comeback and found themselves trailing by just 6 with less than two minutes to go. With mere seconds to go, QB Mike Romo scrambled to his left before finding Michael Bowen in the end zone as time expired. SMU won the game 31-30.
Greatest Players:
  • Doak Walker (1945, 1947-1949): The greatest football player in SMU history, Doak Walker was a three-time All American, winner of the 1947 Maxwell Award and the 1948 Heisman Trophy. He was an all-purpose player for the Mustangs, playing running back, defensive back and place kicker. His popularity was so great that SMU began playing its home games in the Cotton Bowl in 1948 and the stadium had to be expanded from a capacity of 45,000 to 75,000, making it known as "The House That Doak Built". The Doak Walker Award bears his name, given annually to the best running back in college football, and he has a statue on campus. He went on to have an outstanding NFL career, winning two NFL championships with the Detroit Lions.
  • Kyle Rote (1948-1950): Another outstanding running back, Kyle Rote was an All-American in 1950 and finished second in the Heisman voting. His most notable game was against a juggernaut Notre Dame team in 1949 - with Doak Walker out with an injury, Rote ran for 115 yards and passed for 146 in a close 27-20 loss to the Fighting Irish. Notre Dame would later honor him as an "Honorary Member" of their championship team. He went on the play 11 years in the NFL with the New York Giants.
  • Don Meredith (1957-1959): A two-time All American, Meredith was one of the best players to ever play under center for SMU. He led the SWC in passing completion in each of his 3 seasons as the starting quarterback, and was later named one of the 10 most exciting players in SWC history. He went on the play for the Dallas Cowboys for 9 years and was a 3-time Pro Bowl selection. He worked as a color commentator for Monday Night Football in his post-football career as well as an actor.
  • Jerry LeVias (1966-1968): Three time All-SWC and an All American as a senior, LeVias is best known as the first African-American scholarship player in Southwest Conference history. Blessed with blazing speed, he led SMU to their first SWC title since the days of Doak Walker in 1966 and finished his career with a win over Oklahoma in the 1968 Bluebonnet Bowl. LeVias faced many hurdles throughout his career, and struggles during the desegregation of college football were later highlighed in a documentary. He would play 6 years professionally.
  • Eric Dickerson (1979-1982): One of the best running backs in Southwest Conference history, Dickerson made a name for himself in the 1980's as part of the "Pony Express", a nickname given to SMU's dominating rushing attack. Dickerson and the Mustangs would dominate other teams with their rushing attack. He finished his college career with 4,450 yards and 48 touchdowns and was a two-time All American. He spent 11 years in the NFL, most notably with the Los Angeles Rams. His record of 2,105 rushing yards in a single season still stands after a certain OU running back fell just short this last season.
Greatest Coaches:
  • Matty Bell (1935-1941, 1945-1949): Led the Mustangs to a a 79-40-8 record, 3 Southwest Conference titles and the 1935 National Championship. Also served as SMU's Athletic director from 1950-1964.
  • Hayden Fry (1962-1972): While he is more known for his career at Iowa, Fry was instrumental in integrating the SWC with the recruitment of Jerry Levias. Under Fry, SMU won the 1966 Southwest Conference title.
  • Ron Meyer (1976-1981): Took SMU to heights it had never seen before, leading SMU to the 1981 SWC title with a 10-1-0 record. He would go on to coach in the NFL for serveral seasons for the New England Patriots and the Indianapolis Colts.
  • Bobby Collins (1982-1986): Continued on Meyer's success, as SMU finished #2 in the nation in in 1982. Won the 1982 and 1984 SWC titles and compiled a 43-14-1 record in his 5 seasons before the Death Penalty and the suspension of the SMU football program.
  • Forrest Gregg (1989-1990): A standout SMU football player in the 1950's and a legendary player for the Green Bay Packers, Gregg was asked to do what had never been done before - rebuild a football program from scratch. Undermanned and outsized, Gregg and the post-death penalty Mustangs have a special place in the hearts of my fans.
  • SMU's tailgating scene is known as The Boulevard, which started when football returned to campus in 2000. Free beer, music, food and people-watching makes for a good time. The only problem with it is convincing fans to leave and head towards the football game before kickoff. It's modeled The Grove at Ole Miss.
  • SMU's mascot Peruna will run across the field after touchdowns and at the end of each quarter.
  • The Mustang Band will regularly change uniforms before and during football games. They are known as "The Best-Dressed Band in the Land" and have more than 30 uniform combinations to choose from for each game. They are to bands what the Oregon Ducks are to football. The band specializes in jazz music.
  • Each season a player is selected to wear the #23 jersey in honor of Jerry LeVias (currently LB Stephon Sanders).
  • The SMU hand signal is "Pony Ears", which is made by slightly curling the index and middle fingers. If you curl too far it looks like TCU's and no one wants that.
Campus and Surrounding Area
City Population: 1,223,229 City Skyline: Downtown Dallas Iconic Campus Building: Dallas Hall, the first building on SMU's campus and featured in the SMU logo; named in gratitude of the support by Dallas leader and local citizens in the founding of the university. Designed after the Rotunda at the University of Viriginia and once housed the entire university, a bank and a barbershop. Local Dining:
  • Snuffer's: Great burgers and the cheddar fries are pure awesome. I would advise against playing intramural soccer directly after eating here, however - I found out the hard way.
  • Campisi's Egyptian Restaurant: Italian restaurant located across the expressway from SMU with a few other locations throughout Dallas. The pizza is good.
  • Eatzi's: European-market style with a bunch of prepared foods. Last time I went there for dinner I ended up buying food for about 4 meals.
Random Trivia
  • The team was originally nicknamed "The Parsons" due to a large number of theological students on the team. They were given the name "Mustangs" by Dorothy Amann, secretary of the president of the university, when she was watching the team practice and exclaimed "Why, out there, on the football field, it looks just like a bunch of wild Mustangs!"
  • Legend has it that the Ford Motor Company named the Ford Mustang after SMU, after Lee Iacocca saw SMU play at Michigan in 1963. "Today," Iacocca said, "after watching the SMU Mustangs play with such flair, we reached a decision. We will call our new car the Mustang. Because it will be light, like your team. It will be quick, like your team. And it will be sporty, like your team." Coach Hayden Fry bough the first Ford Mustang ever made for $1.
  • SMU colors are Harvard Crimson and Yale Blue. I'll let you figure that one out.
  • "The Hilltop" is SMU's nickname, as the campus was built on a hill.
  • SMU's mascot, Peruna, has an interesting history. In 1935 he traveled to New York City as SMU was taking on Fordham. After taking a cab to the stadium, Peruna I met Fordham's mascot on the field and kicked and killed the ram. A week later Peruna I died when he wandered off onto Mockingbird lane and was killed by a speeding car. The name Peruna derives from a popular "cure-all" tonic. (There are also rumors that Peruna tried to mount Texas Tech's horse and knocked Bevo to the ground with a kick.)
  • A Texas A&M cadet once tried to stab a SMU cheerleader.
  • "Mustang Mania" was a promotion program in the late 1970's which saw Dallas overrun with SMU stickers, advertisements, music, shirts and more. It resulted in an surge in popularity and attendance for the football program.
  • Of course SMU is the only program to be ever leveled with the Death Penalty. The "30 for 30" film Pony Excess, directed by Thaddeus D. Mattula, goes into the rise, fall and rebirth of the SMU football program.
What is and What is to Come
In the beginning, there was football, and it was good. And then the 1980's came, and in a whirlwind of cash, drugs and horrible fashion choices, the football went away. For twenty years SMU football struggled to break free of the Death Penalty, and it was an ugly 20 years. The dissolution of the Southwesten Conference, watching your rival excel like never before, suffering a winless season ... the list goes on. And then 2009 came and SMU went bowling and cast aside the demons that had plagued them for so long.
Heading into 2012, it seemed like SMU was ready to build again on the 3 straight bowl appearances and challenge for a conference championship. With former standout recruit Garrett Gilbert taking over under center and Zach Line entering his senior season, it looked like the Run and Shoot would finally take off like it did for June Jones in Hawaii for all those years. And with several quality players on defensive, SMU looked to be in as good of shape as it had been in years (although an injury in the secondary prior to the season loomed large).
(One odd tibit of the 2012 offseason was June Jones seemingly taking the head coaching position at Arizona State, only to have their students and alumni revolt which such passion that his offer was rescinded not two hours after he agreed to it. This came on the same day that SMU announced it was joining the Big East, which made for a busy afternoon on the message boards.)
SMU would finish the 2012 season 6-6 (5-3) record. There were a lot of games that were out of hand one way or the other - 9 of the games were decided by an average of 31.6 points. The 3 games that were close: the TCU game, which was played in a monsoon and saw both teams struggle to move the ball; the Tulane game, which saw SMU fall on a last second touchdown to a team that was riding a 15 game losing streak; and the Tulsa game. The Tulsa game was the biggest win of the year, given Tulsa being undefeated in conference play and SMU actually needing the win for bowl eligiblity. SMU actually led the game by 29 points before Tulsa put the fear of God into everyone at Ford Stadium, as noted above. The season was capped off with another blow out, of course - SMU demolished Fresno state 43-10 in the Hawaii Bowl.
And now SMU heads into 2013 with another daunting out of conference schedule (Texas A&M and TCU return, and Baylor is swapped out for Texas Tech) along with a new set of conference mates to play against - some new faces, some old. SMU fans would love for the program to take the next step but it certainly won't be easy without marked improvement on both sides of the ball. The level of frustration with the Run and Shoot is high right now as it hasn't produced the offense that Mustang fans envisioned when Jones was hired. As of now, another 6-7 wins is probably the expectation - anything more would be a success, while anything less would have SMU fans calling for changes.

Questions Answers
A few embarassing days and $200 later, I had new front teeth, but I have to wonder Dave....has anyone ever told you your hot sauce was so hot they puked their teeth out? I have to say this is a new one for me. I'm thinking this could be a new slogan or T-shirt. What say you?
Have you ever thought about putting a warning on the bottle telling people to not wipe their eyes if they began to water? My dad tried it once at a bar as a dare. His eyes started to water so he wiped them. He was in the bathroom for 30 minutes washing them out. Needless to say, it was hilarious. We actually do have a warning on the label to keep away from eyes, and yet we get a lot of stories about it. We strongly recommend that our sauces go in only ONE orifice, that would be the mouth.
Eyes, nose, I've heard them all. The other day we received an email from someone who for some reason thought it would be exciting to rub on his penis for pleasure. Turns out it was not. We will therefore not be coming out with any lubes or lotions any time soon. And that market looked so promising!
Albuquerque native here. Why were you banned from Fiery Foods? I've always wondered why you guys didn't have a stand, when Blair's is prominently featured. I'd love the chance to directly compare your sauces. Our Insanity Sauce was banned from the show because a guy had a minor respiratory issue requiring medical assistance. Note that he was fine an hour later. We also had a guy pass out for a few seconds after eating Insanity bombs that we were serving.
Tried it once in London while having fish and chips. Parent's were not impressed when the waitress told them it was the hottest chili sauce ever. Coming from Malaysia, we tend to have pretty spicy food. At the end of the meal, we were sweating bullets and panting heavily with tears coming down. Good question. You can always send an email to [email protected]. We're actually a small company so if you email us, we all see it and someone will help you find a location the best we can.
My question is, WHERE CAN I GET THE SAUCE IN MALAYSIA ? I've had some super hot Malaysian foods, so I'm well aware of how hot it can be.
It is trending high. However, with all the great stories and comments here, you might have something better. If you do and we use it, I'll send you several for your friends and family, not to mention a bottle of my special Reserve Insanity Sauce. Insanity Sauce.
My question is: Do you plan on a Trinidad Moruga sauce? We have been scaling up our growing of Scorpion peppers (Trinidad) for months now and will have enough to launch a scorpion sauce this fall/winter. We are always early at working on these items, but it always takes us a while to scale up the growing/production.
Is there a Moruga Scorpion Sauce in the works (as the pepper is now the hottest pepper in the world)? Answered above, something is coming, hottest thing we've ever made. Follow us on Twitter, we'll probably announce it there first.
Anyways, my mom called him a wimp for not being able to handle the heat, so SHE went over there to clean up the mess. That's when she started coughing while my sibblings and I started laughing....that's when it spread. Remember, those are tears of joy, not pain.
TL:DR; Your sauce is the secret ingredient in tear gas. I'm afraid it's no secret. :-)
Is it true the best thing to drink while eating food with really hot sauce on it is milk? We have one individual who does quality control testing of all our hot sauces on a regular basis to make sure each palette is top quality. Thankfully this is no longer me.
We actually keep a gallon jug of milk on hand at all times in our on-site kitchen. It does help to cool, as does yogurt.
What's your all time favorite customer response to one of your products? There are so many. Thanks to YouTube we have so many to choose from and on a regular basis. However, there was one voicemail message from one that I'm thinking of posting. It was pretty hilarious.
What is the largest quantity of your own product you ever consumed at one time? How badly did you regret it. You must mean one of our superhots. I did once try a spoonful and definitely did not like the experience.
Also, when cooking with your sauce, how much do you yourself put in? Usually my family is there when I cook and they are wimps, so I need to use after the fact.
But since you're in the hot sauce business you must have a favorite chili recipe. Care to share? I'll post a chili recipe today. I also have a Balls of Fire Meatball Soup if anyone is interested. I never really have favorites, but definitely add meat and beans.
Yes! Link to twitter.com

World famous as in Montana and Wyoming? I believe we're in over 15,000 locations across the country, carried by stores like Whole Foods, Wal Mart, Kroger, etc.
Sorry i had to say that, i've been around and i've never heard of your world famous sauce. I will say we're not as famous as Franks or Tabasco, but then again we never really wanted to tap the children's hot sauce market.
I remember reading a case study about you in Inc Magazine here a few years back, in which an agency proposed some new designs for your labels and packaging. If I recall correctly, you decided not to follow their suggestions and instead went with your gut. Nice memory.
How did it turn out? Were your new homebrewed designs successful? Do you think you made the right decision? We did not listen to their advice. Since then our company has more than tripled in size and has won a bunch of awards. I am really pleased with my decision. There were parts of their advice that was insightful and I have used to improve my decision making. What your brand says and to whom it speaks are important.
Why is it insanely hard to grow ghost peppers from seed, even in south texas? I'm guessing you import that from India? Good question for Paul Bosland at the Chile Pepper Institute in New Mexico.
We grow our peppers in Costa Rica, where we make the sauce.
Why do you think there is a class of humans who LOVE and CRAVE hot sauce, the hotter the better, and there is another class who just can't tolerate it at all? I often wonder "what's wrong with my taster" that I can barely tolerate any heat at all. It will literally make me shudder and do an involuntary spasm. I love the flavor of chilis and like green chili verde and love enthic foods like curries and such, but if there is anything above mild to moderate heat (e.g., a smidgen of jalapeno, nothing more, and I would pick it out), I find it brackish and offensive. When I was in college, a chem/bio teacher gave each student a piece of paper to put on our tongues. Everyone who had a piece of paper that turned blue, showed evidence of a specific enzyme and she said "you hate the taste of liver, don't you?" YES! I do! She said there is a particular enzyme in our saliva, some of us have it, some of us don't, and it dictates what we can and can't tolerate -- but liver was her only example that I remember. I've always wondered if this is why I also can't stand heat. Any insight? Good question. It could be a number of items from saliva to mouth lining to pain receptor structure to brain perception. The experts would be at the Monell Institute in PA. Chiles deal with the heat pain receptors and not the taste buds, etc.
I threw a mexican food themed party with mild, medium, hot, and very hot salsas... your insanity salsa as the very hot. most people think they can handle very hot.. they couldnt. also.. i think there is a sauce thats 357,000 scovilles which is the hottest sauce that still has other ingredients (garlic, tomatoe, etc) i believe anything after that becomes a flavorless additive..? ami wrong? im probably wrong... im usually wrong. Depends on your pain receptors and how much heat you can handle. Some people really can taste all the ingredients.
What is the most bizarre food product you have enjoyed with your hot sauce that you'd like to share with the world? I can't help but think extreme heat can be interesting to go with certain textures or food items that you'd normally not "do" hot sauce with. A touch of heat can really go with many items, but certainly delicate desserts need very little. It is the strong acid flavor in hot sauces that really will ruin a more sensitive item. I have had scorpions, crickets, beetles, etc. and those are weird, but have never really been all that tasty. I think that they needed some sauce and I wish it had been with me when tasting them.
Dave, have you ever been to Hell Night at East Coast Grill in Cambridge, MA? No, but heard it is great.
That... was possibly the best way anyone has responded to someone being physically deformed from there product EVER. In reality, he probably lost that eye. Who needs depth perception anyway? I'm not recommending anyone ever rub hot peppers or sauce in their eyes. As I've done this before. It's unpleasant. Then again, I'm also curious as to what the temporary effects were and hoping something supernatural pops up. Would be a great marketing message.
"Oh my god the burning! Wait, what's that? MUST WRITE QUATRAIN'S ABOUT FUTURE!"
It is rumored after all that Nostradamus used a similar method.
I don't have a Dave's story. Why? Because I put Dave's Insanity on/in everything and enjoy it greatly. It's hands-down the most effective way to get my jimmies nice and rustled! THANK YOU DAVE, you got me through 4 years of crappy college food. I'm a huge and very appreciative fan of yours! The official jimmy rustlers of the U.S. Olympics.
I love Hot Sauce!!! Is Dave's Insanity available in Canada? Specifically Ontario? Try Buckstone. The carry many of our products: Link to www.buckstone.ca
Do you grow your own peppers to make your sauces? Yes we have our peppers grown for us. Our offices are located in San Francisco so no peppers are grown here. Many are grown and packaged in Costa Rica so that they don't have to be transported. Grown and made on the spot with no preservatives.
Did you ever think of naming it Hirschkop's insanity? Or did you realize that sounds like some syndrome someone might develop? Hmmm, doesn't have the same ring to it. It also might imply something about the rest of my family that they might not like.
Which of your fine products will make KPopp suffer the most? Well she is one of our best test subjects. I have something new planned for her!
So, about that hot sauce... it's magnificent as a deer repellent in the garden. I make a homemade spray for my plants -- raw egg mixed in water with what used to be cayenne pepper, but that wasn't working so well -- and I switched to your insanity sauce on a lark. Just two tablespoons. You water the plants with this heinous concoction all over it's leaves. The plants don't give a crap what you put on them, so long as light gets to them, and the plants don't have any lasting taste differences. The egg gets the hotness to stick to the leaves, and most critters don't like the taste of raw egg anyway, but the spicy stuff is what really gets to them. I've never seen a deer jump vertically quite so well (it hit about 5 feet straight up -- AWESOMELY SATISFACTORY). Point being, I know you are in the human-sauce business, but are you considering (even just maybe?) making a fiery doom animal repellant for the garden? I'd be happy to field test it. We actually did make a garden sauce that you could spray OR eat, but it wasn't a big seller so we discontinued it.
Why are hot sauces so expensive? Why can I get a bottle of louisiana hot sauce for 67 cents, vs when I go buy one of these naga sauces it's like $14? Is it because it's a much smaller operation? Good question. It is partly because a much hotter and more complicated sauce has much more expensive ingredients and partly because smaller operations have higher cost and distribution loads.
Dave, last christmas my awesome girlfriend got me your ghost pepper sauce. BEST GIFT EVER! I'm a college student, so most of my meals consist of ramen, hormel chili (if i'm really lucky) or something like that. I must say, Dave's Ghost Pepper + Hormel Chili + American cheese = AMAZING! However, I do have one small problem. Ever since I started using your sauce, I AM SLOWLY LOSING MY ABILITY TO TASTE SPICY FOOD! I find myself using more and more hot sauce at restaurants, to the point it makes whatever I'm eating soggy and gross, and I still can barely feel the burn. The other day my sister made flatbread pizzas, with some on regular flatbread, and some on "spicy southwest style" flatbread. I ate one, and I was like "I want to try one of those spicy southwest flatbreads can you bring me one?" And she was like "Dude. You just ate one." Is this part of your plan, Dave? To increase the tolerance of spicy food lovers until we can no longer taste anything but your amazing sauce? It's a secret alien plan to push human evolution. You've seen the X-Files movie with the viscous fluid in the pit. Yeah, that's our Reserve.
I go through a bottle of Insanity sauce about once a month or so. Also, one time I emailed you and asked you to make a Vindaloo spice mix. Any chance of that happening? That might be a good sauce, but a harder mix to sell in the US market. Maybe in the UK, where we also have a large fan base. That said, Indian food is one of the fastest growing specialty food categories in the US. We're definitely exploring new and unique flavors for the future.
Do you have any advice on how best to navigate the numerous regulations, labeling requirements, inspections/approvals etc needed to get a food products mfg operation off the ground? How did you initially get stores to give your products shelf space? The regulations are really local, so find another local food manufacturer and have them walk you through it. You can ask the local/state health dept to also tell you the rules. Label printing companies can tell you the labeling regulations and they are also on the internet. FDA has good info on its site.
Getting stores to buy your stuff is really about going to trade shows or just walking into small stores and having them try it.
Dave, can you comment on the fact that your hot sauces are hot due to the fact that you "spike" them with pepper extract? All the super-hot sauces like yours (Endorphin Rush, Blair's After-Death) use pepper extract. Isn't that....cheating? I was the one who pioneered using the extracts and there was a good reason. The extracts are at least six times as hot as a habanero and without them you couldn’t get a sauce as hot. Now with the scorpion pepper the extracts are less necessary. I don’t believe that it is “cheating”, but is a different approach. Buying orange juice (essentially orange extract) is not cheating because you should be eating the orange.
I like spice, but I really don't consider myself a hardcore fan. That said, Like all things repetition and practice.
What's the best way to train your spice tolerance from 0 to say... your Ghost Pepper Sauce? One day there will probably be a genetic alteration available. At that time I will be the first 94 year old to win the Heisman trophy.
Hi Dave I hope this won't get burried within the comments but I am a thirteen year old who loves all of your sauces but even ultimate insanity along with ghost isn't quite doing it for me. Will you guys make anything hotter in the future, not just limited edition? Love to see you start early. Can't imagine what you'll be eating when you are 18.
We do have some stuff in the works. I believe late fall or early next year.
Do you and Blair ever get into fist fights? Do you glare at each other from across the room like Maggie Simpson and that kid with the one eyebrow? Well I have sent some suspicious packages to Blair's. We have many competitors and I don't really spend much time thinking about them. We focus on continually innovating and upon the things that we can control. Is the one eyebrow a unibrow or just one eyebrow on one side?
My wife and I split them into two bunches. The first bunch we've strung up to dry, and they've started turning red. The plan I think is to eventually make crushed red pepper flakes out of these, but do you have a better idea? You could make a decorative ristra with the dried ones or make powder or flakes.
The other bunch we've decided to use for making pepper vinegar sauce, like the kind poured over southern greens or sometimes pulled pork. The idea right now is to slice a single slit into each one, shove them into an empty liquor bottle, fill the bottle with hot vinegar, drop in a garlic clove, and let it sit for a few weeks. Sound good, or should I do something different? The sauce sounds good to me. You might want to try some spices or even some sugar too. Also you could experiment with different vinegars.
Now my question is, what is your take on the flavor vs. heat blend in a lot of sauces and additives now a days? Do you personally enjoy a tastier sauce or a hotter sauce, or does it depend on what you are eating it with (which is my take)? It really depends upon the occassion. It is fun to really heat up wings or chili, but a chicken marinade would be better slightly to medium spicy and a salad dressing should have just a touch of heat.
This may be a bit bizarre, but I was wondering if your plant employees need any additional safety gear ,above and beyond the normal for food production? We wrap them like mummies.
Has OSHA established a PEL for your sauce? Nope, no special equipment, but they definitely get training to know not to put their face over the kettles and take deep breaths. No special Osha status and a perfect safety record.
Can you explain the difference between your sauce & pepper spray? Pepper spray is only useful for self defense. Our sauce you could throw in someone's face and then lick it back off after they pass out.
Which sauce do you enjoy the most over a meal? Hurtin Habanero Hot Sauce or our butternut squash pasta sauce.
Love your sauces. I go through about a bottle per year of the Insanity sauce, and I got a bottle of the Ghost pepper sauce last year that I use at work, whenever somebody orders their bloody mary "Extra Spicy" They usually don't finish it, and if they complain, which only two people have done, I say "Well, you did say 'Extra Spicy...'" Anyway, my question: Would you please rank your products relative to each other on the heat scale? For example, just how much hotter is the Ghost Pepper sauce than the regular Insanity sauce? Thanks for using all of that. I believe that all the heat rankings are on our site at www.davesgourmet.com. Look for some even hotter items coming this fall/winter.
Dave, I discovered your hot sauces about a year ago, and since then I've been questing for hotter and hotter things to eat. I've started growing and eating raw ghost peppers to get my kicks, and found they have a really great flavor. Do you have any advice on actually crafting a sauce from these? I love your Dave's Ghost Pepper Sauce, and wanted to make some fresh stuff grown at home. What goes well in a sauce with these little demons, and what other peppers compliment the flavors? Flavor is more subjective, but I like slightly fruity flavors with the Ghost Peppers. To me it is more like a habanero than a serrano.
What inspired your supreme hatred of the gastrointestinal system? Pure evil.
I love Frank's red hot sauce - are you guys Kosher (OU)? Afraid we're not certified Kosher.
Damn...I really want to try the insanity sauce! Here's the link to OU if you're interested. Link to www.oukosher.org. Thanks, I'll have some folks here look into it.
What was the worst reaction to someone trying your hot sauce you have witnessed? Heard of? Link to bit.ly
Any chance you guys will branch out to more Asian style sauces like a Sriracha or Sambal Oelek? I love these sauces but they're just not hot enough. We had a siracha style sauce that tasted great, but didn't sell. We are looking at some other Asian ones, but there are already many out there and we need our point of difference. Great idea.
Which is your favorite hot sauce from your stuff and blairs and cajohns if you have tried them? I have tried many of my competitor items. I really like my Hurtin Habanero and Total Insanity and Ginger Peach. Outside of my items I really like Siracha.
I would like to thank you for making such a delicious (i find it delicious the rest of my family cant take the heat so they get out of the kitchen) hot sauce. The one time my mom ate it was when someone thought it was regular hot sauce... they were mistaken and my mom pretty much burst into tears. My question is how much fun is it to do what you do? Most of the time is fun and great. The people we deal with are terrific and the food delicious, but it is a lot of pressure always trying to do better.
You may want someone to take a look at your website, looks like there is malicious keyword spamming/redirection going on. Link to www.google.com. Looks like the website it's redirecting is down, but it still tries to redirect. Thanks, we've seen that and are in the process of making those changes while we redo our website. But again, thanks for catching that.
Hey Dave, I'm just wondering, what's the halal status of your hot sauce(s)? While the products meet halal requirements in terms of it's ingredients, it is not certified as such.
Dave, what internet retailer of yours keeps the freshest stock & best price? Probably Peppers and Hot Shots.
Link to peppers.co Link to www.hotshotshotsauce.com
Why did your sauce get banned? Some guy had a minor respiratory issue that required medial attention.
time I was exposed to Insanity Sauce I licked my plate clean. Amazing product, keep it up! How many scoville units is the original? You gotta lick quickly before it burns a hole in the plate.
I've got your 2011 reserve at my house at the moment, but the bottle broke. Is the quality of the bottle any different from a normal sauce? Also just wanted to say thank you as Dave's insanity got me into super hot sauces. Did the bottle break on it's own?
Link to www.youtube.com. One of my favorites.
[This is what I imagined he looked like.] (Link to imgur.com. Strong, but sad. Can't show the pain. Must keep inside.
I firmly believe that Dave is a satanist and that his sauce is a potion which turns your anus into a conduit for old Lu himself to squeeze through. The resulting movement involves fighting back the End of Days and the four horsemen along with it. It could be a plot line for Darksiders 3. I've heard this theme before. Sometimes in our voicemail.
Sorry boss, gotta go. Yup, fire anus. I never thought of it before but perhaps we could market a product for getting people out of work?
I started the Scoville testing program for a major hot sauce company-- let me know if you ever have a need for an analytical chemist.... You can always email us at [email protected]. I see each of those emails.
I grew up on insanity sauce and was eating it as young as 6 years old. Thank you! Glad they didn't call child protective services.
I accidentally rubbed some of your Limited Reserve Hot Sauce in my eye. And? Did you see the future?
We own a food truck that is relaunching on Saturday. We're using your Ghost Pepper sauce in our "tater tot roulette". 7 people, 7 tots, 1 has an injection of ghost pepper sauce. Brilliant. Do you have a website or twitter feed?
We put some of your Insanity Hot Sauce in our friends dip tins. Real Insanity ensued and it is always hilarious. Photos?
We were all drunk and my friends were eating hot wings. They said they weren't hot enough, so they picked up the insanity sauce. I was like "nope don't do that," but they slathered their wings in it and took a bite -- and spent the next hour drinking milk and hopping about Video? photos?
Your butternut squash pasta sauce is all kinds of awesome. I don't even mind spending 9 bucks for it - the jar is really big anyway, so I get 4+ meals out of it. With love, annakarenine, the only redditor that's not talking about hot sauce. One of a few who are talking pasta sauce. Thanks for the compliment. You know who else is a big fan is Pnut of the band 311. He actually mixes it with oats for breakfast. Butternut is our top seller, and has won the Sophi for best pasta sauce. We are pretty proud of it.
Aaaand now i'm hungry. Link to pinterest.com
Your Insanity Sauce is awesome! I use it in my chili recipe to spice it up. It is my secret ingredient. I won't make chili w/o it. Keep up the good work. I'd love to try the pasta sauce. If it's a secret, then don't mention it on reddit. These people can't keep a secret.
Just want to say great sauce Dave, i have a bottle of the ghost pepper sauce, couple drops and damn... best part is is ACTUALLY tastes good, unlike a lot of super hot sauces. Thanks! Ghost peppers, while very hot, are surprisingly flavorful. But hot. Did I mention the heat?
Oooo, dave's insanity sauce. I used to eat avocado with your ghost pepper sauce for lunch. Yumminess. Wow, you are the man. Unless you are a woman and then you are just awesome.
My dad Dave and my uncle Dave love you and your sauce. That sounds wrong in a few ways, but I can't phrase it better. Let me try. It's a two way love fest of my sauce. Nope, not better.
Dave's is the hottest sauce I've ever put in my mouth and I'd have to say it was a very unpleasant experience, I don't know how people eat that stuff. Me either, they must be crazy.
Try our mild butternut squash pasta sauce that won best pasta sauce in the industry.
What's your kids' (if you have any) opinion on the hot sauce. Most kids can't stand it but it'd be interesting to see if your kids inherited the "hot" gene from you! My kids are largely chili wimps, although my son likes our spicy pasta sauce a lot.
Ginger Peach is fucking awesome!! Thanks. We all use it a lot here ourselves. It makes a great glaze/marinade for grilling. Also really good in ice cream.
I've bet quite a few people to eat a spoonful of your Ultimate Insanity without crying, puking, etc. for $5. Let's just say your sauce pays for itself, so thanks! At one trade show some macho men, who were recently suffering from a toothpick of ghost pepper, brought a female co-wroker over to try it. She ate an entire spoon and was fine. She also lived in India for a year, but it was pretty funny to see their disappointment after thinking she'd not be able to handle it. Put them in their place.
Can you tell us a few funny mishaps that occured to you during production. When capsaicin is that concentrated, you're essentially dealing with pepper spray. You must have some good wtf stories involving lots of crying, visits to the hospital, etc... You can guess it. Not washing your hands before going to the potty. Not washing your hands before amorous adventures. Newbies breathing in the fumes and causing lots of coughing.
No questions, just wanna say your sauce is delicious! And taken out of context, that could be an awkward sentence... You should read have the stuff I see on Twitter. I'm sure people who don't know us from hot sauce, or our pasta sauce fans are quite disturbed by the tweets.
