Maker Story: Mike grew up in a house divided.  His father was a lover of spice, at least on his terms.  His mother on the other hand loved to cook with garlic and onions, but did not care for the heat. In their kitchen, there would often be two different versions of the same meal being prepared.   

Mike started growing peppers in a window box outside his apartment and became amazed at the overwhelming variety of flavor that existed.  When a new job opportunity offered his family the chance to relocate to North Carolina, the first thing he did once he purchased his home in NC was to put in a garden that would house more peppers than he knew what to do with. The second thing he did was to buy a smoker. 

Inevitably after that, he decided to take a stab at making his own hot sauces. Early on he was a bit of a mad scientist and in some ways still is. The hot sauce line has grown into a family business and world-renowned line of hot sauces. Read the entire story here.
