These New BBQ Sauces are NOT Made in China
Does it bother you that more and more of the stuff on store shelves these days comes from China?
Do you or someone you know make it a point to "buy American" whenever you can?
If you answered "yes" to any of these questions, then Not Made In China Barbecue & Dipping Sauce is for you--and for anyone else who craves a big, bold barbecue sauce that's proudly made in the USA.
Sure, the name might be somewhat "tongue in cheek," but rest assured that the flavor is tongue-ticklin' good: Tomato and molasses for sweetness, vinegar for tang, garlic and onion and Worcestershire sauce for savory richness, and a dash or two of hot sauce and natural smoke for peppery zip with earthy depth. Enjoy this thick, all-American barbecue sauce on anything you grill: Ribs, chops, burgers, chicken, shrimp, and veggie kabobs. Its provocative name makes this Kentucky barbecue sauce a great gift for proud Americans and BBQ lovers everywhere (except maybe in China?) and a guaranteed conversation-starter at any tailgate, cookout, barbeque, picnic, block party or other get-together around a grill.
If you love classic American BBQ sauces but a more refined, genteel name and label are more your style, Virginia Gentleman VG90 Bourbon BBQ Sauce is for you. This Virginia-made tomato-based BBQ sauce is a little sweeter from brown sugar as well as molasses, with a mellower tang from lemon juice as well as vinegar, but it has a similar rich, robust flavor from many of the same savory ingredients--plus a depth of flavor from a splash or two of small-batch Virginia Gentleman 90-proof straight bourbon whiskey. This elegant American barbecue sauce will please connoisseurs and amateurs alike with its food-friendly taste that complements meats, poultry, seafood and grilled vegetables like portobellos and summer squash. Appropriately enough, the bottle sports a classy label featuring a vintage 18th century fox-hunting scene, and is topped with a gold-tone seal.
Not Made in China Barbecue & Dipping Sauce and Virginia Gentleman Bourbon BBQ Sauce are available from the Carolina Sauce Company, and both are currently on sale so now's the time to give them a try.
