We've been featured in several spicy food articles!
Check out the article where Utah Stories Magazine called Burn Your Tongue...
We were also featured in a SLC Catalyst Magazine article...
"Passion and Restraint: The Rise of Spicy Food in Utah" Our section is "The Encyclopedian"
In 2020, Craft Hot Sauce included BYT in a list of 32 Unique hot sauce shops around the World! We were honored to be included in the list with some of our own Hot Sauce Industry idols! Scroll down to #17 in the list for BYT.
There is another reason we were included in the unique list above. We actually have the largest selection of hot sauce for a Retailer NOT sold out of its own Retail store location!
Back in 2012, we were given a Best of Utah award by Salt Lake City Weekly Magazine for the Best Spicy Sampling in Utah! This was awarded when we had less than HALF of our current Superior Sauce Selection and only ONE location instead of FOUR!
Now, we have over 850 sauces in Ogden and FOUR locations, listed on our Contact Page, to serve Utah Chileheads! We haven't been able to find an award category that features single Specialty Stores, but we are still trying to win another award someday!
We would love to connect with Utah Foodies, Spicy Foodies and Industry Podcasts or Bloggers to "Spread the Spicy Word" that there is so much #morethanjustfrysauce in Utah!

Roger Damptz, owner, joined us with a quick "trip around the world" with international sauces they carry at Burn Your Tongue. Hot Sauces are popular in all countries including our neighbor to the north, Canada, and in countries "across the pond" like Ireland, England and Scotland, as well as The Netherlands, Germany, France and Spain. Roger also told us about different varieties in South Africa and New Zealand."

Our First TV Appearance - Good Things Utah! LIVE
Our first live TV segment on ABC 4 Utah -Good Things Utah - August 18, 2021 from 9:15 to 9:23 AM
"We had such a fun time at Good Things Utah this morning! All three GTU hosts - Reagan Leadbetter, Surae Chinn and Nicea DeGering joined Burn Your Tongue Hot Sauces to sample spicy sauces from our superior selection of nearly 700 sauces available at our HQ inside The Quilted Bear - Ogden!"
Supposed to be only five minutes, we had so much fun we ended up with a nearly EIGHT minute segment! Here is the video write up from their website: "Things got a little spicy on GTU today with a visit from Roger Damptz, owner of Burn Your Tongue. Burn Your Tongue is Utah’s Legendary Hot Sauce Leader. Our hosts can confirm this after taste-testing a line-up of Damptz’s sauces! Damptz carries many different sauces with differing tastes and geographic influence. They have sauces from over half of the United States, Canada, New Zealand and Scotland."
"Why is the sauce so hot? According to Damptz, spicy is not a taste like bitter, sour, salty, sweet or Umami. It is, in fact, Capsaicin that hits the pain receptors and causes the spicy effect. After tasting something spicy, cool down with milk, whip cream, bread, or sugar."
We thank everyone at Good Things Utah and ABC4 Utah for their time and the segment! We also thank EVERY fiery food fan, #utahchileheads, for your business and support!
Our second live segment on ABC4 Utah Good Things Utah. Getting spicy on International Hot Sauce Day!
On November 5th, 2021, we revisited local TV channel ABC4 Utah and Good Things Utah.
"It’s International Hot Sauce Day! Can you handle the heat? Roger Damptz from Burn Your Tongue Hot Sauces stopped by to educate us on hot sauces from all over the world. As well as give the hosts a chance to test the strength of their taste buds."
"Surprisingly, Damptz says there is a science behind a really good hot sauce. The base for most hot sauces is Vinegar except in England, they use a Lacto fermented formula, a naturally occurring bacteria, but he says most people can taste the tanginess the bacteria gives."
"In Africa, the sauces give a quick upper burn, but it drops off quickly as opposed to sauces that have a burn that lasts a while. A hot sauce does not need to be flaming hot in fact, the flavor is actually what brings customers back to buy the sauce. In Damptz opinion, the U.S. makes the best hot sauces, but hot sauces are a growing phenomenon around the world."
Nicea, Deena and Surae got to try these sauces from around the world first-hand! There seemed to be a consensus that the more “mild” sauces were less hot but packed with flavor. As they got to the hottest sauces, they dipped their crackers in sparsely and Nicea combatted the heat with a Hawaiian Roll dipped in milk. To see their full reactions watch the video.
If you want to try these delicious hot sauces for yourself, check out the International sauce section in the Burn Your Tongue Hot Sauces booth at The Quilted Bear, Ogden.
