June 27th & 28th found DDC competing at back-to-back cook-offs in Sandpoint, ID. What a beautiful location for a cook-off! Weather was hotter than normal according to the locals but there was a great turn out anyway. Rick got 3rd in red chili Saturday and Susie took 3rd in red on Sunday. DDC also won first place in People’s Choice on Sunday with our awesome chili verde. Everyone seemed to love it, amny had never had green chili and were surprised how much they liked it. On to Carson City, NV July 11 & 12!
DDC had the fortune of stopping by the Lucky Dog hot sauce booth at the Alameda County Fair and WOW… what an awesome lineup of DDC – DEE Licious hot sauces! Made right here in our own SF Bay Area in Hayward, CA, you can be sure the DDC booth and our famous lineup of top notch hot sauce will now feature front and center the Lucky Dog lineup.
No kidding, this is a top notch delicious lineup of hot sauces that will suite all taste buds and the owner and operator, Scott Zalkind, a Bay Area native, was passionate about his hot sauce lineup, a fantastic selection of delectable “culinary gravy” that would beautifully compliment a bowl of DDC chili and satisfy ANY hot sauce aficionado.
Don’t believe us?? Come by our booth at the next ICS Cook off and find out what the bark is all about in Lucky Dog hot sauce…
For the 12th year in a row, DDC has qualified for the ICS World Championships. Susie earned her way there at the ICS Phoenix cook off, winning 1st Place in Chili Verde on March 14th. Not to be out done, the next day Rick won 1st place in Chili Verde, making for a DDC weekend sweep in Chili Verde and securing a 12 straight trip to the ICS World Championships.
Both Rick and Susie still hope to qualify for ICS Worlds in both Red Chili and Salsa, trying to once again win their ICS HAT TRICKs. Both Rick and Susie will be competing on July 27th and 28th in the ICS Idaho State Championships in Sandpoint, Idaho… Yes, Idaho!!!! Apparently they eat chili in Idaho and DDC intends to bring them the best red chili and salsa around!
