The Battle of the Carolina BBQ Sauces

The states of North and South Carolina are home to one of the best barbeque scenes in the country. The people of this region possess two unique barbeque sauces that differ significantly from the tomato and sugar-based sauces that dominate in other parts of the United States.

Nonetheless, residents of these two states often bicker over which of their one-of-a-kind sauces is better. Which do you think sounds better?

Carolina Mustard Barbecue Sauce

Carolina Mustard Barbecue Sauce is a sweet and tangy option whose dull yellow color differentiates it from conventional sauces as soon as you first lay eyes upon it. Made with yellow mustard, vinegar, brown sugar, and just a little bit of ketchup, residents of the eastern regions of the states are more likely to use a recipe like this.

Carolina Vinegar Barbecue Sauce

Carolina Vinegar Barbecue Sauce is a sauce that combines three main ingredients, tomatoes, sugar, and apple cider vinegar, to make a sauce that really has a pungent punch. Its strong vinegary taste might not be for everyone, but believe me when we say that this sauce, when drizzled on top of a plate of pulled pork, is absolutely to die for.
