Every adventure has a beginning, Jon and Todd's just isn't very interesting. They eat a ton of hot sauce, and it became a point of pride to see what they could withstand. There was a reoccurring theme though, every truly 'hot' sauce they ingested lacked flavor. They wanted both a great tasting product and then that sweat inducing heat.
Each time Jon and Todd would chat over a beer they would talk about making sauce. Jon would make batch after batch for his willing taste tester. After a few years of tinkering they finally came up with a few recipes they loved. Then, SourceFire was born, and now they are ready to share it with the world.
