Makes no sense for them to move. Capiscum is not a challenging effluent to filter out of air exhaust, and the cost of a few filters is a fraction of having to relocate out in the middle of nowhere, or to some shiat state with no regulation or services.

I think it might have been a good move for them to go to Texas.  They wouldn't have to deal with such an anti-business climate, they could fire all their union employees and only have to spend about $8.50 per hour on their new employees.  They also wouldn't have to deal with a bunch of Californians crying "WHAAAAA it smells like hot sauce!" Texas would also suck their collective dicks in lieu of charging them taxes for about a decade.

They aren't going to move to Texas - and no - it wouldn't have been a smart move for them.
Among other things, the peppers they need fresh don't grow there, and it would take years and lotsa capital to gear up an operation. Meanwhile, trading high income taxes for high property taxes will only benefit them a little,
They are a pretty good corporate citizen, and wouldn't benefit from the lack of regulation - indeed, it might be hard to fins a place to grow their peppers in an environmental nightmare like Texas.
And, of course,  they would need a new workforce. Nobody is going to follow a moderately paid job to someplace nobody wants to live.That's why the guy doesn't want to move, and won't.
The company never seriously considered moving to Texas - that was just Rick Perry shooting his asshole off.

You may be right about the peppers, though I've been able to grow scotch bonnets and jalapenos where pot wouldn't grow.  I just can not imagine that trucking in peppers would cost more than trying to do business in California, especially when their alternative is a state that does not allow medicaid for males.  Not to mention that you can practically have your mail delivered to your house by rail.


Well, if the company does, in fact, move you'll be right and I'll be wrong. But being a local, and well versed on the story, I wouldn't recommend that you bet the farm on it.
Again - the "Texas Deal" isn't as great as it's represented to be by the Texas CoC. Whether or not people understand it, there are some distinct downsides to the race to the bottom - and they are going to emerge more prominently over time.
Indeed, when you think about it - deliberately populating your state with people and institutions that have come there because they don't wish to pay taxes or obey inconvenient laws just might lead to some negative consequences down the line.
Unless your idea of a good time is living in a state full of Cliven Bundys.

Personally, I think it's mostly vinegar, not a "hot" sauce. Not trying to do the hottest sauce, just what I like. I like that Yucateco Habanero. Basically, ground peppers, salt, a little vinegar and just a touch of garlic.

b0rg9: shtychkn: Tapatio and tobasco are not comparable. Tapatio seems so much more than flavored vinegar.

I can appreciate that.  I'm glad there's so many widely available varieties in this category of hot sauces.  I like Tapatio, too.

I think the Fark favorite in this category is Cholula.


Which is common. Guess I've grown up on tapatio. I'm also a big siracha fan. Different foods.


Siracha on my Mexican food does not sound good. Tapatio on my hummus sounds horrid.

For farks sake, don't forget to WASH your hands before visiting the loo...

Wear latex gloves while handling peppers, washing multiple times may not help. Not that I would know anything about that.

/as much of the story as your going to get...

I once popped the lid off the blender to get an up close look if the still hot roasted habaneros had reached the consistency I wanted.  That was a, um, what's the word I'm looking for... mistake?


Meh - Once was making my own chili base with habenaro and thai peppers - opened the lid on the pot I was cooking it in the wrong way and got a face full of capsaicin-laced steam - Literally pepper spraying myself....

/about as bad as the CS chamber in basic.....
//ended up taking it outside to the BBQ grill to finish it off....

hlehmann: Mrs. Renfros is still our go-to jarred salsa


That is good salsa. That said, the origin story on the label always makes me SMH: "[Back in the day], Mrs. George Renfro and her husband..." I guess his name was George. No mention of her name, even though it's supposedly her salsa.

It doesn't bother me either way if women take their husband's last name or keep their own name when they marry, but the "Mrs. [Husband's first name] [Husband's last name]" construct drives me nuts. "She was married to George Renfro. That's the only thing worth mentioning."

/end rant
//It is good salsa, though.

thisisarepeat: insano: So I guess the owner decided that California is not, in fact, like communist Vietnam. Huh, I guess he was just bloviating to try and get out of his responsibility to not pepper spray the populace? Color me shocked.

Enjoy your clean smelling, bankrupt nation.  Does anyone even make paper here anymore?  I wonder where all the jobs have gone?


LOL wut?

Sriracha has a nice flavor, as do a few other sauces. All that, masochistic 10 billion Scoville stuff though, yeah.

I like it because it's thicker than Tabasco, which is just spicy vinegar. For sandwiches, sriracha and mayo is almost unbeatable. If I want to spice up a pizza, I'll use Tabasco or Cholula. I've never understood why people dedicate themselves to one hot sauce. That said, I do need to expand my horizons.

How odd. I don't like vinegary sauces and just checked a sriracha bottle to see if it had any (of course it does). I love sriracha ever since I saw a bottle in hellmart and thought "what's this stuff? Never heard of it, and it's cheap."

I like all sorts of hot sauces but gotta say sriracha is my go to sauce.

No matter your opinion on Sriacha as a "hot sauce," this stuff makes the best deviled eggs ever. No need to add any other seasonings. Mayo, yolk, Sriacha - and then get out of the way.

Tabasco on pizza and in some other select dishes, otherwise I go with Yucatan Sunshine for most things.
