Carolina Sauce Company! To add some drama, I'm listing them in reverse order, from 10th place to 1st place:
10. George's Original Barbecue Sauce, an eastern NC BBQ sauce that's mellower than most because it's made with apple cider vinegar and just the slightest touch of tomatoes
9. Bone Suckin' Barbecue Sauce, Thicker Style, an authentic western NC BBQ Sauce that's thick and rich, full of tomatoes, and pleasantly tangy due to just the right amount of vinegar (after all, it's not a sweet Kansas City or Memphis sauce!)
8. Carolina Cupboard Western NC Style BBQ Sauce: This Piedmont/Lexington style tomato & vinegar based sauce is tangy, not too thin like eastern NC sauces, and pleasantly peppery without being too spicy
7. Jim's Own Homestyle BBQ Sauce, a multiple award-winning Piedmont/Lexington style sauce made with vinegar, tomatoes and spices for a tangy-sweet taste sensation that just begs for pulled pork!
6. Carolina Treet, an all-purpose vinegar-based cooking and barbecue sauce that you can use on the stovetop and in the oven as well as on the grill
5. Bone Suckin' Sauce: This is the original Bone Suckin' Barbeque Sauce, a thick, tomato-rich western NC style barbeque sauce that's bone-suckin' good on ribs, chicken and anything else you grill!
4. Carolina Cupboard Eastern NC Style BBQ Sauce, a tangy vinegar-based and pepper-spiced barbeque sauce typical of the style found in North Carolina east of the Triangle
3. Scott's Barbecue Sauce: Made from a family recipe that's almost 100 years old, this authentic, traditional eastern NC BBQ sauce is the real deal with its tomato-free and sugar-free vinegar base and spicy-hot peppers!
2. Carolina Swamp Sauce: Made in NC but NOT a vinegar-based BBQ sauce, this gourmet grilling sauce with a slightly Asian flair is fabulous on meats, chicken, seafood and more
And now for the #1 Best-Selling Barbecue Sauce for 2007:
1. Wells Hog Heaven Barbecue Sauce: Made in the tiny town of Burgaw, NC outside of Wilmington, this authentic eastern NC BBQ sauce is peppery and tangy, with just a touch of sugar and smoke to temper the vinegar. Perfect for eastern NC style pulled pork BBQ!
