Time to hitch up the horses and hit the trail – I’m almost ready to go westward towards Albuquerque, New Mexico, home of the National Fiery Foods and Barbecue Show. The event, which is in its 22nd year, is touted to be the largest trade show and convention of its kind in the world.
Myself and other chilehead bloggers – including Joe Levinson of The Hot Zone Online and Al “Buddah” Goldenberg of I Love It Spicy – will be there in full force, speaking with the exhibitors, sampling the latest spicy products, snapping photos and getting video for the benefit of all of you who unfortunately cannot attend.
If you yourself are planning to the Fiery Foods Show on Friday, Saturday or Sunday and happen to spot us in the ginormous masses of Fiery Foods Show attendees, please say “hi”! We promise we won’t bite…hard!
This will be my last regular blog post before traveling to the Land of Enchantment (New Mexico’s state nickname). Keep ScottRobertsWeb.com bookmarked (along with the other fine sites I mentioned earlier), for this weekend I’ll be posting reports and uploading oodles of pictures from the show.
Follow my up-to-the-minute exploits in New Mexico on my Twitter account. I plan to post several updates a day before, during and after the show with plenty of photos. (By the way, if you want to follow ALL Fiery Food Show Twitter updates, search for the #NFFS hashtag.)
Don’t forget that some time on Saturday I’ll be posting a video for the hot sauce giveaway contest that any of you at home can enter to win! Sometime this coming Friday or early Saturday morning I’ll be announcing the time that the video will be posted; copy the phrase that’s in the video and send it to me in an e-mail and I’ll put you in a drawing to win the prize pack.
Last but not least, the Fiery Foods and BBQ SuperSite promises to have streaming video this weekend of the show, right on their web page. Don’t forget to hit their site several times to tune into both live and pre-recorded segments.
