‘Barbecue Lover’s: The Carolinas,’ by Robert F. Moss, covers traditions, regions and recipes.

This Maryland guy is no expert on Carolina BBQ by any means, but author Robert F. Moss covers every region of North Carolina BBQ as well as South Carolina styles in his latest book.

Eastern, Central, and Western North Carolina are discussed, along with my favorite – mustard styles from South Carolina.

BBQ recipes, restaurants and joints – Moss tackles them all.

I first learned about it from a post on the Salisbury Post blog from Deirdre Smith here: Salisbury Post Article

Carolina Cologne BBQ sauce on pulled pork – review

Carolina Cologne is an Eastern North Carolina barbeque sauce from Jerry Roberts, who grew up in Nags Head, N.C. and now resides in Florida.

This sauce adds some body and flavor to what is traditionally a thin sauce. In a nutshell, it’s pretty damn good, and a big improvement over a traditional sauce.

WEEK OF WINGS IV – Day 7 – Carolina style wing sauce

Thicker and saucier, this is the most unusual wing sauce of the week. Different and a fitting end to our Week of Wings 4.

Carolina Sunshine Bar-B-Que Sauce Original and Hot Review

Mild BBQ sauce is our entry for Day 3 of our Week of Mild, and this time it’s an Eastern North Carolina style sauce from Carolina Sunshine. It’s a stretch to call any strong vinegar based sauce “mild”, but I’m willing to include one here for variety’s sake. That and the fact that I just realized these potent vinegar based sauces have quite a kick to them, but they are “mild” in terms of heat.

Carolina Sunshine Original and Hot BBQ Sauce

North Carolina boasts two main styles of BBQ sauce – Piedmont (Lexington) Style, typically made of vinegar, salt, peppers, spices, and ketchup (and sometimes worchestershire sauce) – and Eastern Style, again based on vinegar, but no ketchup. Unlike all other regional BBQ sauces (except for the mustard based goodness out of Alabama), there is NO ketchup in Eastern North Carolina style. This fact alone has always kept me from really enjoying this style of sauce. Until now.
