Oliva1We are pumped to introduce our latest new product, General’s Hot Sauces. This product’s flavor is second to none and has a story we can certainly support.

Smoke Hall Foods is veteran-owned and the Louisiana based parent company of General’s Hot Sauces. General’s was conceived by its founders at the 2012 Army-Navy football game tailgater in Philadelphia and inspired by a close friend who actually serves as a General in the military. His passion is making wings for his friends and family.
With “giving back” at the core of their mission as a company, General’s strives to create jobs for veterans, and to donate a meaningful percentage of their profits back to organizations that support our troops, veterans and their families.

The “grenade” packaging alone makes this a perfect gift or fun to use at home.
