In 2005, Defcon Sauces, LLC was formed. Being purveyors of fine Buffalo-Style Wing Sauces, they entered the market with a loud explosion. With the owner, John Dilley, also known as The Creator, donning a sort of retro-futuristic, Mad Max-style scientist uniform, the hot sauce industry quickly took notice of this strange, yet incredibly tasty company. In 2006, they began entering major award competitions, and have quickly tallied up over 40 major awards, including 4 Golden Chile Awards, and numerous Scovie Awards, the two largest and most well-known competitions in the hot & spicy product arena. They seem to be quickly becoming the team to beat in many competitions.
At the large trade shows they exhibit at, it becomes quite apparent that John and Margaret Dilley have nothing but fun. With a booth full of laser lights, plasma devices, strobe lights and an incredibly powerful ultraviolet wash, they have been named “Vendor-tainment” by more than just a few onlookers. They attract a large audience at nearly every trade show they set up at, as John, is happy to not only let you taste his standard wares, but usually has a small vial with his own naturally-distilled Habanero extract on his person, and will cast an evil smirk as the tasters of this evil elixir fall like dominoes in front of him.
“Hey man, it’s all about the fun. If you had told me we would be where we are 5 years ago, I would have laughed in your face,” says John. In addition to their 3 heat levels of Buffalo-Style Wing Sauces, Defcon Sauces has also released other multi-award winning products, like their mild and hot Habanero horseradishes, aptly named the Habby Pony and Habby Horse, and have recently come out with a dehydrated version of their medium wing sauce, The Smokey Dust.
With no end in sight for this dynamic duo, Defcon Sauces continues to blaze the trails in a perpetual search to fulfill their motto, “Future Rulers of Earth.” I dare say, with their amazing track record thus far, their sought after “Global Assimilation” is inevitable. Check this company out at www.DefconSauces.com, and see what these crazy people are up to next. You never know where they will turn up, as they do numerous events at bars and restaurants, known as Defcon Days, where the wings are free all afternoon, and there is a chance they will have their signature Wing-Eating Deathmatch, a truly Hellish experience in itself.
