Pee Dee River’s Swamp Sauce
Too many times people market a sauce and say it’s different, but in reality, it’s just another variation of something else. With Swamp Sauce, Tim really created something unique!
Swamp Sauce – officially called Pee Dee River’s Swamp Sauce, is a light bodied, thin BBQ sauce, with lots of bits floating in it – “Flavor You Can See” says the label, and I have to agree! It’s not the gloppy thick sauce you’d think of when talking about BBQ sauce. My first impression is that it would make a great marinade or glaze for barbecued chicken. Now I know we just got through Thanksgiving here in the U.S., but bbq can be done any time of year. And I really wanted to share this great all-purpose bbq sauce with you.
I was lucky enough to win 2 bottles of Swamp Sauce from Greg Rempe’s excellent podcast/internet radio show, BBQ Central on LA Talk Radio.
Pee Dee River Swamp Sauce answers the age-old question of which barbecue sauce is best—vinegar, mustard or tomato based? So which one is best? They all are, especially when combined into one unique sauce.
Pee Dee River Swamp Sauce’s unique taste compliments all type dishes, from pork to chicken to beef and even seafood. Our customers have found that casseroles and rice dishes are complimented by our special flavor.
It’s combination of vinegar, tomato and mustard base is what defies tradition. Tim Pattan of Swamp Sauce, has created a nice balance of sweet, hot, spicy and savory sauce. You MUST try this sauce, as it is totally different from other BBQ sauce offerings.

I had some pulled pork in our freezer that I smoked a few weeks ago, so the first thing I did with the Swamp Sauce was put it on some of the pork. The sandwiches were yummy. The vinegar in the Swamp Sauce, and it’s overall sweetness really made for a great Carolina style pulled pork.
Their website lists some 22 recipes for Swamp Sauce.
First we tried the Swamp Dip recipe – their version of a Chili Con Queso dip. It made for a great homemade queso dip, and with the vinegar profile of the Swamp Sauce in it, made it quite different than the usual queso dip. Very good with tortilla chips.
Next I want to try either the barbecued chicken or the steak marinade.
