"Play ball!" That cry rings out in ballparks all over the country this time of year, to the thrill of baseball fans young and old alike. If you're looking for a unique gift for a baseball fan who also enjoys good eats, check out our baseball themed sauces available from the Carolina Sauce Company.
The Durham Bulls are the Triple-A affiliate of the Tampa Bay Rays, and were immortalized in the now-classic film, "Bull Durham." The Bulls have their own official barbecue sauce, called Durham Bulls Triple Play Bar-B-Que Sauce. This tasty, tangy BBQ sauce is made here in North Carolina and is a Piedmont (western NC) style sauce, which means it has a zesty vinegar-tomato base with just a bit of peppery zip. What makes Durham Bulls BBQ Sauce stand out from the crowd, however, is its touch of sweetness that plays off the vinegar tang (think bread & butter pickles). Terrific on Carolina pulled pork BBQ, Durham Bulls Barbecue Sauce is also excellent as a marinade and grilling sauce for chicken, ribs, shrimp and veggies. As shown in the photo, it features the Durham Bulls logo on the label, making it a great gift for fans of the movie and the team.
Also from North Carolina, but not a vinegar sauce, is Outta the Park BBQ Sauce, available in zippy Original and the brand-new fiery Hot & Spicy recipe. The award-winning Original Outta the Park BBQ Sauce is a classic all-American tomato-based barbecue sauce that's thick and rich, with just the right amount of family-pleasing sweetness and a feisty finish. The Hot & Spicy version takes the original recipe and adds a special blend of hot peppers to bring on the heat and satisfy fiery-foods fans. Both are wonderful for ribs, chicken, seafood, veggies, and even in recipes--in fact, we'll send you a card with recipes when you order either flavor from Carolina Sauce. Created by a Red Sox fan, the baseball-themed name and label make Outta the Park BBQ Sauce an ideal gift for baseball fans.
