Meet your new kitchen staple: Uncle Brutha’s Allsauces. From vegetables to seafood to poultry, these versatile hot sauces enhance the flavor of almost any dish. Made from fresh ingredients rather than powdered and dried seasonings like many other typical hot sauces, Uncle Brutha’s balances the heat of fiery chilies with the savoriness of vegetables and herbs.
Each Allsauce offers a unique combination of flavors. If your everyday vegetables need a pick-me-up, add a few drops of Allsauce No. 9, Uncle Brutha’s take on salsa verde. Serrano chilies, garlic, ginger, cilantro and green onions are blended to create an exotic flavor that also elevates any seafood recipe.
If you are a heat-seeker, reach for Allsauce No. 10, a deeply flavorful blend of garlic and four chilies, including serranos, habaneros, and red and green jalapeños. Just a small amount of this sauce will introduce enough spice to satisfy your need for heat but not too much to overwhelm the flavor of your food. No. 10 and your favorite fried dishes, such as chicken, fish or french fries, are a wonderful combination. You could also mix the Allsauce with ketchup, BBQ sauce or even tomato sauces to create new flavors.
These atypical hot sauces first came to life many years ago following Uncle Brutha’s founder and DC resident Brennan Proctor’s lengthy quest for the best hot wings. Rather than finding anything deserving of this title, Proctor was frequently underwhelmed by the flavor and heat of the many wing sauces he encountered. Rather than continue to be disappointed, he began researching the characteristics and ingredients of the sauces he did like and then experimented with his own flavor combinations to create his ideal hot sauce base. Shortly after, Proctor moved to Los Angeles to pursue a career in sound engineering for music videos. While in LA, he attended a colleague’s baby shower where Proctor was in charge of making and bringing the wings which were smothered in his homemade hot sauce. One serving was all the soon-to-be mother needed to encourage Proctor to bottle his sauce and sell it.
Even though he had the perfect sauce, Proctor still needed to complete the package with the perfect name. In the end, the inspiration for the Uncle Brutha’s brand name came from family. Proctor’s sister has always referred to him as “Brother” and he affectionately calls her “Sister”. When his sister became pregnant, it was easy to decide what the new baby would call Proctor: Uncle Brother. This family endearment eventually became the inspiration for the name of Proctor’s new line of sauces. Proctor added the name “Allsauce” to communicate the versatility of his hot sauces.
Proctor shared his Allsauces with his sound engineering clients but when the calls asking for sauce were more frequent than the calls inquiring about his musical services Proctor realized he needed to switch gears. After 12 years in Los Angeles, Proctor moved back to DC to establish this new business and make Uncle Brutha’s his full-time job. Once back in his hometown, Proctor tinkered with the recipes a little bit more and began entering two sauces, No. 9 and No. 10, into national competitions where he frequently placed in the top five.
While Uncle Brutha’s currently only offers the No. 9 and No. 10 Allsauces, Proctor promises that he is working on some new recipes to expand his line of versatile hot sauces. At Smucker Farms we are anxious to try these new flavors but until then we are happy to offer the original Allsauces!
