2014 Weekend of Fire

Weekend of Fire

Once again, the Weekend of Fire promises to be filled with wild and fiery fun that only Jungle Jim’s could ignite! Join other chiliheads, hot food makers, and fiery food lovers for the festivities on October 4th and 5th at the Oscar Event Center in Fairfield.

For this weekend only, you can sample and purchase foods from all over the country at our Fiery Food Show! Hot and fiery or mild and meek; you choose your favorites and can buy enough to last. Over 50 vendors and more than 300 samples will be waiting to set your mouth on fire. But there’s more than just hot sauces. BBQ sauces, salsas, rubs, mustards, and all sorts of spicy foods are just a small sampling of the tasty treats available.

Gather your courage and join the other brave competitors in the Arena of Fire. Hot and spicy contests will push the competitors to their limits and winners will take home prizes worthy of their contest. The intimidating Feast of Fire is the ultimate test of spicy endurance. Brave souls will be seated for a “four course meal” of increasingly volatile and formidable dishes.

Your whole family will enjoy browsing the booths and checking out the other entertainment. Stilt walkers and balloon twisters are sure to engage even the youngest of chiliheads. Love the thrill of competition but don’t have the stomach to compete? Stop by and cheer on the competitors in the Arena of Fire as they consume some of the hottest items from the show. Be sure to grab a ballot and place your votes for awards such as: Best Hot Sauce, Best Salsa, Best Booth and more.

The sauces aren’t the only wild things in this show – wait until you see the people, costumes and booths! The hot sauce community is outrageous, bodacious and contagious. Weekend of Fire is one wild weekend with hot food and cool entertainment!

Hypnosis and Hot Sauce

candle flame

Back in 2010, I got Scott Roberts from to volunteer for a little hypnosis experiment I wanted to try. There is something called HypnoBirthing which basically is hypnotherapy to remove the pain and fear associated with child birth. So a woman can have a pain-free baby delivery. I figured since I had learned a little about hypnotizing others over the years, maybe I could use this pain-free hypnosis for things that are too spicy. Imagine the ability to eliminate pain at will? Well I had to know if it would work. I was very confident it would, but I wanted to document it, but needed a guinea pig for my experiment. In stepped Scott to allow me to play with his brain, so to speak. Hypnosis works best with people that are very intelligent and willing, and I knew Scott would be the perfect subject. We were both coming to the Fiery Food & BBQ Show in Albuquerque, New Mexico, and there would not better opportunity than there to do this experiment.

The 2 videos we showcased our test with 3 super hot extract products from 3 different companies. The first company is the German Police with their Painmaker which ranges around the 800,000 scoville mark. You will see that test in the 1st video which begins with my hypnosis induction I did with Scott. In the 2nd video, Scott took on Defcon Sauces‘ Zero which is between 1-2 million Scoville, and then finally CaJohn’s Flavor & Fire’s Black Mamba which uses 1-4 million extract to create a better average.

2014 Best Salsa in the World Contest

Since it was a huge hit the last 2 years at the Houston Hot Sauce Festival, (over 70 jars of salsas submitted last year), we are doing this contest once again. This time we are joined by Ken Alexander from who has graciously agreed to take my place at the event since I can not be there. Since he did a bang-up job at the Louisiana Hot Sauce Expo, I know he will carry that professional approach to this contest as well. Thanks Ken! That is not all folks, James Beck from iBurn has agreed to add to the prize for the winners. All 3 first place winning salsas in their respective categories will be bought to sell at their brick and mortar and online stores. That is a huge bonus beyond just the trophies we provide. James will also be a judge, so if he tastes something he loves, he just might be looking to add those salsas as well. So you people who can’t make the festival, can still be able to experience a little of the best salsas in the land through iBurn! Thanks so much James for being a valuable partner with us this year.

The most important factor in this salsa contest is to raise money for the Snowdrop Foundation which helps with Children’s Cancer research and support.
