To say that this year’s Weekend of Fire was a whirlwind (and a hot one, at that) would be a tremendous understatement. This was our 10th anniversary (which we’re sure you’re aware of), and we couldn’t have been happier with the turnout, the selection and the competitions. The level of excitement makes this festival brand new every year. All-in-all, it was an absolutely incredible weekend that has us already looking forward to next year in a big way.
A big part of the festival is our WoFi Awards, which gives fest goers the opportunity to vote for their favorites in the Best Salsa, Best Hot Sauce, Best BBQ Sauce and Best Specialty categories. Congratulations to the winners (which we’ve listed below)! Be sure to stop by either Jungle Jim’s location to pick a few of these up for your next meal!
