2014 NYC Hot Sauce Expo

Defcon Sauces takes 1st Place Screaming MiMi - Wing Sauce!

Well, the 2nd Annual NYC Hot Sauce Expo is now in the history books. The Defcon Urban Assault Vehicle has been unloaded, and things are resuming a semblance of normality again.


 We here at Defcon are quite proud to announce that our hallowed Mantle of Awesomeness was blessed with the top award from the show, The Screaming Mimi Award. We took First Place in Wing Sauce at the event (The Defense Condition #1 took the award), and let’s just say, I was a tad happy.


The Screaming Mimi Awards have quickly become one of the most, if not THE most sought after award that our industry offers. With only 12 categories, and one 1st, 2nd & 3rd Place awarded in each. It concentrates the company’s submissions, and makes it MUCH more difficult to win. Add to that the Judges, who came from extremely well-known culinary backgrounds, like Bon Appetit magazine and The Food Network, and well, to win with that caliber of judging makes it all the more awesome.


 We’d like to thank Steve Seabury for creating and running with this event, as the man has birthed something special, and something he should be proud of. A big shout-out to all the attendees as well, for without you, this industry is nothing. We look forward to the 3rd Annual, and seeing all of our industry friends, which are about as close as you can get to family, without the DNA sequences.




DEFCON Sauces launches new product!


Ok, for the first time in well over a year, the Defcon Sauces Labs have completed construction of our newest product, The Defcon Creator's Contaminated Soil. It is our second dry product, and contains the essence of EIGHT different peppers, plus a few Ancient Defcon Secrets.


 This product was unveiled at the 2nd Annual NYC Hot Sauce Expo on March 30th, and became an instant hit. These vessels are the pre-production units, of which we only have a few dozen left, before these go into full production.


 In our experimentation in proper utilization, we found one of the best uses for this product was rimming a shotglass with it for a tequila shot, sprinkling into a Bloody Mary, oh yeah, and it tastes awesome on pork tenderloin. Of course, the uses are as endless as your imagination. Be the first on your block to own Defcon Creator’s Contaminated Soil, A Fine New Jersey Product. An exquisite blend of Nature’s abominations.

Defcon Creator's Contaminated Soil


Now available Online! (While supplies last, I'm being honest..)



Surprise Visit ... You never know ....

Well, we had an awesome time at Lefty's Irish Pub, a 3rd generation family owned establishment located in Marcus Hook, PA.  It was a rare impromptu visit, types of visits that have been really bad, but this one was just the opposite.  We met a ton of new friends, and the owner Tom Mclaughlin was a great host.  A ton of people met face to face with the ZERO Sludge, which, of course, made the afternoon, lol.  Their food is great, and the portions are HUGE!  So, if you're ever in the area, stop in and say hi, you'll be glad you did.

Pomona, NY - 2013

What a great show!  1st year was a success from the dancing frog to the country band.


18th Annual Bowers, PA Chili Festival - 2013

Well, as expected, the Bowers, PA Chile Festival did NOT disappoint! Perfect weather indeed helped, but DAMN, what a turnout! Thank you to ALL that turned out for this "Gem in the Woods' show. 2 straight days of completely selling out of product has a habit of putting a smile on my face. It also shows that the attendees have a great sense of taste, lol. Well, wasn't able to get out of the booth much, but I had help from those who sent pics. This is one show I shall do, until I can't do any more.

Thanks Bowers!


Duff's Brooklyn Wingfest - 2013

The 8th Annual Wingfest was a great time had by all, just like the last 7 years.

Thanks to all who came out to hang with us.

That's right. The DEFCON Crew spent the weekend (June 28-June 30) at the 1st Annual Zest Fest Midwest show in Columbus, Ohio. We had a blast meeting everyone, hangin' out, and slingin' sauces. On Sunday morning, they announced the People's Preference Awards. Not only did we take 1st Place in the Wing Sauce category with our Defense Condition #2 Wing Sauce and 3rd Place in Condiments category with our Smokey Dust, we also took BEST IN SHOW!

This is a first time we've ever taken this award at ANY show, and yeah, we're proud!



Well, a HUGE thanks has to go to Mad Mike for the best New England Regional CHili Cookoff that I've been to yet.

Our 6th year proved to be our best, We had our annual Defcon Wing-Eating Deathmatch, and for the first time at this event, Adam was our first 2 time back to back winner! Congrats! Well, looking forward to doin' it all over again next year!

Here are some cool pics of the event......


We had an AWESOME time at the 1st Annual NYC Hot Sauce festival in Brooklyn!

Looking forward to doing it all over again next year!




Yup, we finally did it. Defcon Sauces Swept all 3 First Place awards for mild, medium AND hot wing sauces!
