Big Daddy’s Carolina Style Barbecue Sauce

Big Daddy says, “This is Carolina style barbecue sauce.” This means that it is vinegar and mustard based, as opposed to the ketchup and molasses based sauces of the mid and southwest. The combination of sweet and tangy flavors brings out the absolute best in grilled or smoked pork or chicken.
