Fire & Spice

Â After telling his buddies the hot sauce on his
wings wasnâ€™t making him sweat, Tony Alexanderâ€™s friends told him if he didnâ€™t think the sauce was hot enough, he should make his own.
And thatâ€™s exactly what Alexander did.
That challenge happened a few years back and now Tony Alexander goes by the nickname Uncle Bud, chief cook and bottle washer for his own brand of sauces guaranteed to bedazzle any dish, even two fried eggs. Alexander sells his sauces at the Riveview Farmersâ€™ Markets on Sundays in the Heights (May-November) and at the Grove Street Plaza for Groove on Grove on Thursdays. Currently, heâ€™s in the process of getting his sauces into a big box store that sells whole foods.
