Good news for fans of Carolina pulled or chopped pork BBQ: Wells Hog Heaven BBQ Sauce is back in stock again at the Carolina Sauce Company! I drove out to Wells Pork & Beef in Burgaw, NC, today and brought back a truckload of their zesty vinegar barbecue sauce, so we once again have plenty in stock. Wells Hog Heaven Barbecue Sauce (the one with the black label in the photo on the left) is our all-time best-selling barbecue sauce. In addition to being the perfect sauce when you want to enjoy eastern NC style pork BBQ at home, Wells Hog Heaven is also excellent for marinating and basting chicken and meat. Tangy and pleasantly spicy without being hot, Wells also adds a zesty kick to cooked greens and other veggies. I like to splash it on fried catfish, hushpuppies, Calabash shrimp, and french fries.
We also have Wells All-Purpose Ribs & Chicken BBQ Sauce (with the yellow label in the photo), which blends plenty of tomatoes into the tangy vinegar base for a sauce that's mellower in flavor, with a thicker, richer body. As the name suggests, Wells All-Purpose Chicken & Ribs Sauce is perfect for slathering on grilled chicken or ribs, and can also be added to ground meat for hamburgers or meatloaf.
PS: If you ever find yourself in Burgaw, which is about 30 minutes outside of Wilmington, NC, and you have a hankering for some Calabash style seafood, I recommend Holland's Fish Camp Restaurant, which is only a few miles down the road from Wells Pork & Beef. I had lunch at Holland's today and enjoyed a generous portion of fried catfish and frog's legs, which were expertly fried and not at all greasy. The coleslaw was creamy, "NY deli" style slaw, as opposed to the tangy vinegar slaw often served in NC. The portions were large, the food was fresh and flavorful, the service was attentive and friendly, and the rustic log dining room overlooking a fishing creek (this is a real fish camp, folks!) was quite relaxing.
