The Smiling Itinerant

We are a collection of friends, a mess of delicious peppers, and a truckload of poppycock.

We took our name from the evolution of the hot pepper.  These fruits of pain evolved to be eaten by birds, which always look happy to us unless they are in season.  Birds are not affected by capsaicin and therefore can transport the seeds, along with a bit of fertilizer, to nearly every corner of this big semi-spherical place called, “The World!”

At The Smiling Itinerant, we make hot sauces, barbecue sauces, other sauces, words, and carbon dioxide.  So, tough questions should be directed at the internet…oh wait, direct them at the other internet.  It’s better, we hear.
