Speedy’s Hot SauceHTTP://WWW.SPEEDYSHOTSAUCE.COM In the late ’80s and through the late 90’s I hung out in a place called Mr. T’s Tacos. It was a fixture on 44th street across from Old Dominion University in Norfolk, VA. Carl Boyd, a professor at ODU, made his Death Sauce in trade for his beer tab. He never gave up any secrets, but talking about it with him gave me enough interest to try making some sauce of my own. Mr. T’s got gobbled up by progress and I couldn’t ever find a sauce, or taco joint, to fill the void. Always searching for the right combination of heat and flavor, I decided to keep at the hot sauce creations. For years I would grab some tasty adult beverages and make sauce to give away to friends. Some batches were good and some not so much. I usually got too sauced to remember what I put in it, but I started getting a following regardless. I began writing things down and drinking a little less until the magical sauce was brewed. Things have been pretty consistent for a while now and Speedy’s Hot Sauce has been growing in popularity ever since. One could say that Speedy’s was created out of a necessity for flavor and burn. Speedy’s has a complex and rich smokey flavor because that is what I was after. A sauce should enhance what you are eating, not overpower it. Try it for yourself and start living the dream.

Beef Jerky OutletHTTPS://WWW.BEEFJERKYOUTLET.COM The Beef Jerky Outlet story is pretty simple really. Take the highest quality USDA approved jerky you can find and build a store around it. Make it in small batches so it will always be fresh. Fill the store with so many varieties and flavors of “made in the good old USA” jerky that folks will be amazed. Oh yeah, make the experience fun too. Give out lots of free samples so guests will not HOPE they like their choice . . . they will KNOW they LOVE it! Fill in any extra space with some of the best popcorns, cheeses, peanut butters (the list goes on and on) and even throw in some bug suckers . . . just for fun. The simple idea is – every day and in all ways create an atmosphere that jerky lovers and their families can come into and relax. If you see some of our guests kind of dancing around the store while sampling some truly great jerky you’ll get what we mean. Now it might seem like the idea was obvious. After all, people love great beef jerky, right? Why wouldn’t there be a store featuring it? Well, you should have seen the looks on some of our relative’s faces when they heard what we were up to. You should have seen the look on our BANKERS faces when we pitched the idea to them. Horror films have less tormented looking faces in them than what we were looking at across the desk. So we gave them a little jerky and the rest, as they say, is history. So the long and the short of it is, we took a simple idea and added some fun. We opened the doors and hoped you would come in. And boy have you come. Every day we are motivated to keep it going and keep making it better. It’s all for you, the jerky lover who for too long was neglected and force-fed inferior mass-market jerky. We hope you enjoy it as much as we enjoy doing it for you.
