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 was born.  And in the process, we also made a sweet & sour(ish) Table Sauce that can go on anything.

We kicked up the caliber with Table Sauce 2.0 - the 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 first responders, which is reflected in our company name, logo, and overall branding.  We thank you all for your service and hope you enjoy our products!

President & Chief Pepperhead

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

Vice President  & Pepper Stuffer

Mindy walks more on the 'Mild Side" but she's building up a tolerance.  Which means, she gets to taste stuff (a.k.a be the victim) when Rich says "It's not that hot".  She's also the official 'Unpaid Employee of the Month" - every month!
