Have you met “The Man”???

First of all, I have to say that the Mariners finally won a game that I attended. YAY! It happened on Wed night when they came back to tie-then-win the game in the bottom of the 9th inning… talk about squeeking by in victory. Well, the point of this post is not to talk about the win, but instead to talk about “The Man”.

“The Man” is super-hot spicy sauce served at Dixie’s BBQ. The BBQ (either pork, beef brisket or chicken) is very good and saucy. I’ve eaten there a few times, both at their store locations and at their satellite locations at Safeco Field (Home of the Seattle Mariners). Tonight Peter and I got BBQ while at the ballpark and Peter decided he wanted to meet “The Man”. Now when I say this is hot sauce, I’m not talking about a wasabi hot, or even a tabasco hot…. this is off-the-scale hot and is served using a toothpick. To be clear, a toothpick amount of “The Man” is enough to make a whole sandwich spicy and seemingly unbearable. I used the tip of the toothpick and got a dab of sauce on my sandwich and I felt the burn in my mouth for a few minutes. Peter, unlike myself, is known for getting spicy wings and is tolerant of almost anything hot. Having not previously tried “The Man”, Peter took 2 (I say again, TWO) spoonfuls of “The Man” and mixed it into the BBQ brisket of his sandwich. From the first bite, you could tell he wasn’t doing well. Before continuing, a soda was purchased. After about 4 more bites, it became a testiment of wills…. Peter vs. “The Man”. The sandwich won and Peter tossed in his towel along with any ability to enjoy the rest of the game. To quote Peter, “That was the hottest thing I have ever eaten.” As you can tell from the picture, “The Man” gets a thumbs down. I guess it was too hot to be enjoyed.

Peter Thumbs Down

    I once saw a guy at the Redmond location that was asked by Gene (the dude spooning out “the Man”), “Are you a Man or a Boy?!”

    Gene was just about to dab a spoonful on the guy’s BBQ, and the guy yelped, “I’m a boy! I’m a boy!”

    Gene just smiled and then slowly giggled as walked away to meet another victim.

    The one rule is…don’t show Gene that you’re not eating it. Hide it well if you can’t, or he will find it under the cornbread!
