Wyoming’s Best Homegrown Hot Sauces
If you like it spicy, there’s a few places here in Wyoming that are packing some serious heat.
Here’s five of the best homegrown hot sauce companies in the Cowboy State.
Holy Habanero from Lander – This recipe has been passed down through several generations of the Lucena family in Lander. Available at select gift shops across the state, their booth is also a favorite at the Laramie Farmer’s Market.
Johnny Midnight from Buffalo – This 2014 Hot Pepper Award winner is the most popular item at the Wahoo Frontier Toppings Gift Shop, which is also known for their Bighorn Mountain Chokecherries and a variety of bbq sauces, jams, jellies, syrups and rubs.
Rick’s Original Habanero Sauce from Glenrock – What began as another homemade recipe is noiw sold in stores and served in restaurants across Central Wyoming. There are two flavors; mild and scorching, sizzling, blazing, boiling, set your tongue on fire, hot.
Uncle Milt’s from Cody – In 2004, Milton Dearborn was watching a food show on television and was inspired to create his own signature seasoning. With a little trial and error, Uncle Milt’s Criter Rub was born. Milt now offers a variety of rubs and sauces, including his Cowboy Habenero sauce, which was recently named as Wyoming’s best by Bon Appetit magazine.
