One afternoon, Rich Newton got a wild idea to make peppers - not pickles.  He took the inspiration from a combination of Southern sweet pickles and 'Cowboy Candy" but improved it with his own rendition to come up with "Elevated" sweet & spicy peppers.  

Many, many more afternoons and recipe tweaks later, Point Blank Pepper Company Smoke Rings were born.  And in the process, he also made a sweet & sour(ish) Table Sauce that literally goes on anything.

We've kicked the caliber with Table Sauce 2.0 - same great Table Sauce but with ghost pepper and Hallow Rings - jalapenos and habaneros in a sweet ghost pepper brine.  

And most recently, we've added an 'elevated' seasoning - Pith'd Off!  A roasted jalapeno blend that is spicer than dried jalapenos.  Use this to increase the heat in any dish without altering the flavor by adding additional spices.

We have tremendous respect for the military and it reflects in our company name, logo, and overall branding.  We hope you and everyone enjoy our products and we thank you for your service!

Rich loves hot sauce - LOVES.  Really, really loves.  He's in multiple hot sauce and pepper groups on social media, asks for hot sauce for Christmas and his famous last words will be "It's not that hot".


Mindy Newton

Marketing & Pepper Stuffer


Mindy is more of the 'mild' than the Elevated when it comes to the products.  Which means, she gets to taste stuff when Rich says "It's not that hot".
