Blues BBQ Carolina Pepper Sauce Review

Not a BBQ Sauce and Not a Hot Sauce – What is it?

img_2040-467x800

An all purpose sauce I plan on keeping on my table at all times, Carolina Pepper Sauce has converted this thick and sweet bbq sauce lover over to Carolina “style” vinegar and pepper sauce!

Wine Bottle Pepper Grinder

This wine bottle pepper grinder not only looks great, but it’s our best grinder as well.

Featuring a stainless steel grinding mechanism, it adjusts easily from fine to coarse with the knurled top.

It’s made by Chef Specialties Co in Smethport, PA. Purchased from and custom engraved by totalengraving.com. (See update below.)

I have to admit, we wanted one of these ever since we saw it on the Emeril Live show. (But we constantly wonder why he lays it down sideways… I think it’s a “production” issue… can’t have that thing sitting up tall, and distracting the viewers, now can we?)

So, Wifey ordered this for me, for my birthday. It arrived plain, un-tatooed, sans logo… NAKED even.
I sent Tom at totalengraving.com a post-it note, with my nickname sketched on it, and my grinder came back with the “design” burned in, at actual size. Awesome job, Tom!

This would make a great gift for your favorite foodie! And the website has different woods, and dozens of designs to choose from.

Update 01/03/11: Tom’s new website is called http://totalengraving.com

Tell Tom that HotSauceDaily.com sent you!
