HomeAdventureMichigan Food Adventures™SPICE WARS: HOT SAUCE SHOWDOWN!


Join us on a culinary adventure as we challenge our way through a delectable MICHIGAN FOOD ADVENTURES™ Made in Michigan Hot Sauce Showdown!

We have hunted down every Made in Michigan hot sauce brand we could find – from mild to set your guts on fire hot. Join us for a four episode adventure as we challenge our way through them all.

We have partnered with Tri-City Brewing Company in Bay City, Michigan for this challenge. Challengers include Fat Matt’s BBQ, Billy Goat Lawn Care, RaceCraft, 5-2-Oh, Tri-City Brewing Company, and a contestant from the audience.

One participant will be chosen from door entries to join our team of challengers. The participant also wins our awesome prize package chock full of the hot sauces we feature each given night, and merch from LIVE. LOVE. LOCAL. MICHIGAN™, Tri-City Brewing Company, Fat Matt’s BBQ, 5-2-Oh!, and Billy Goat Lawn Care.

Audience participant will be filmed as part of the episode and will need to sign a release to participate and a waiver for liability purposes. This episode will release on our YouTube Channel and all social media. Details at the door.

*All Hot Sauces are Made in Michigan and are profiled as part of LIVE. LOVE. LOCAL. MICHIGAN™ and our Michigan Food Adventures™ and SPEND LOCAL MICHIGAN™.


Participants must answer five (5) trivia questions about Michigan. They must eat hot wings drenched in one of five (5) Made in Michigan hot sauces if they answer wrong, progressing through sauces milder to hot. The number of sauces they are challenged with is dependent on how many questions they answer incorrectly. We will have sauces from 1K up to 1M+ Scoville rating!

Episode 2: Flavor Roulette

Participants are blindfolded and will draw one food and one hot sauce they must pair together and eat – without knowing what the pairing is. We will do foods other than chicken wings for this one. We will have sauces from 1K up to 1M+ Scoville rating!

Episode 3: The Ultimate Endurance Showdown

Participants must eat wings that grow increasingly hotter until tap out. We will have sauces from 1K up to 1M+ Scoville rating!

Episode 4: Hot Sauce Draw

This episode/challenge will feature three of the hottest sauces (1M+ Scoville units) and two mid-range ones (300-400K Scoville units). Participants will draw a sauce, not knowing what they draw, and must eat as many wings as possible drenched with that sauce, and attempt to do it without drinking/eating anything to cool off the mouth (impossible for 1M+). The last to tap out wins and will be crowned Spice Wars Winner and will receive a trophy! We will have sauces from 300K up to 1M+ Scoville rating for this challenge. Whew, Doggy!
