True Made Foods: Pitmaster Carolina Red BBQ Sauce, No Sugar
Most Americans aren’t aware of the strong division in North Carolina between the Eastern and Western part of the state. A line runs down the state, going through the Capitol City, Raleigh, and the division has been known to cause divorces and fights. In the West, BBQ Sauce is red thanks to the added tomato and the pulled pork is only made from pork shoulder. These Carolina Red BBQ Sauces are also known as Lexington or Piedmont-style. Carolina Red sauces use apple-cider vinegar, red and black pepper and tomato to create tangy and spicy sauce ideal for pulled pork sandwiches. Again, Ed Mitchell and True Made Foods resurrected a classic recipe and turned away from the corn-syrup / sugar trend. Ed and True Made Foods kept the complex sweet-spicy-tangy flavor of a real red sauce and naturally sweetened their Red with butternut squash and carrots instead - vegetables grown right in North Carolina.
