Calling all Chileheads!!! Follow Blair Lazar on Twitter and keep an eye out for promotions. Every so often the Man himself will run an impromptu contest for free goodies; many times simply for tweeting phrases such as “Feel Alive.” I myself was fortunate enough to get a hold of a vial of “Death Shake” from Blair’s own pepper garden (for a chile head, can you think of a more sacred place?) – and what a delectable prize!
I’m still waiting to hear back what all the constiuent parts of this concoction are, but I can tell everyone that it’s a wonderful dry mixture of various peppers and spices. It has a very “bright” taste; hints of fruit, plenty of heat, and multidimensional flavor. It went great on a variety of dishes that I tried it on, and here have it pictured on a Bob Evan’s breakfast sandwich. It would also be great on eggs, hash browns, popcorn, burgers, pizza, meatloaf, macaroni & cheese, chili, wings…and anything else you could dream up.
And the best news? Blair is intending to make this part of the regular line-up over at Death Sauce HQ. I heartily recommend picking up some Death Shake as soon as it’s available. At this time I don’t know what the pricing, packaging and size/wt. will be, but I doubt anyone will be disappointed. So I say Feel Alive…and Get Excited!
