Inside Dish: Joe Perry's Hot Sauce

Joe Perry's Hot Sauce SetOh boy, do I really love having TiVo now. If you’re unfamiliar with the workings of TiVo, you can tell TiVo your favorite types of programs and it will record “recommended” programs based on your choices. Now, the wife uses this feature more then I do, but I have managed to train TiVo to record anything that is related to hot sauces, BBQ or chili. (I keep my options open)

While the wife is sleeping in this morning I decided to fire up the laptop and get some work done. Then I made the mistake of turning on the Tivo and there I found that it had recorded Inside Dish w/ Rachel Ray. This edition of Inside Dish focuses on Joe Perry (Aerosmith) and his line of hot sauces. Talk about serendipity, its hot sauce, Aerosmith and Rachel Ray (if I wasn’t married…) 🙂

Joe Perry’s line of hot sauces is entitled Rock Your World & line includes Boneyard Brew (the Original) and the newest Mango Peach Tango. Both of these sauces are wonderful and full of distinct flavor. These sauces are more then just a name thrown on a label, the flavors have been created after many many tastings and test runs.

Now, I’ve met Joe once (see this post), very briefly, but on Inside Dish, Rachel sits down and discusses the ins and outs of the rocker life style with Joe. Once the interview was finished, Rachel finally digs into the hot sauce side of things. It took over 4 years to get the right hot sauce flavor for Boneyard Brew and at the time of filming the Inside Dish, Mango Peach Tango was still in the testing stages and the band was preparing to film their scenes in Be Cool (just watch Get Shorty last night).

Below is a chili recipe you can put to use this weekend – Rock On!
