About Us

I am a native of Philadelphia and a Navy veteran. My last duty station was in Yuma, Arizona, and after getting out of the Navy, my wife and I decided to stay in Yuma and raise our family. We eventually moved back to the East coast to be closer to family and have been in North Carolina for over 20 years.

I have always loved hot and spicy food, but found that many sauces that were touted as “hot,” were so fiery that you couldn’t really enjoy the flavor of the food. So I started experimenting with making my own sauce, researching different peppers until I came up with what I thought was a blend that was hot yet still let the flavor of the sauce come through. My sauce was a hit with family and friends, and after being told for several years that I should market it, I finally decided to go for it. After completing food safety certification courses and all the required FDA inspection and paperwork filings, my hot sauce was ready to launch!

The name of the sauce was originally created as a gag, after I brought a bottle of my sauce to an office party as a white elephant gift. A coworker made up a label, dubbed the sauce “Mr. Hot Stuff,” and the name stuck. When my wife and I started B & B Gourmet Sauces, we decided to keep the name since friends and family were already familiar with it, and it definitely seemed to catch people’s attention!

We currently have two sauces, a red hot sauce and a mustard-based hot sauce, as well as a ground hot pepper blend. What makes our sauces stand out is the great flavor that you experience along with a heat that does not mask your food experience. Our sauces are made in small batches at a commercial kitchen in Durham, NC. This keeps our quality and freshness at its peak!  

Thank you for taking the time to look through our website. We hope you enjoy your taste experience with Mr. Hot Stuff sauces and pepper blend, and we look forward to hearing your feedback.
