True Made Foods: Pitmaster Eastern Carolina BBQ Sauce, No Sugar
In Eastern North Carolina, the BBQ Sauce is made from Apple-Cider Vinegar and they cook the whole hog. This BBQ Sauce may look strange to Americans who are used to the thick Kansas-City-style, but it is the secret behind some of the most amazing BBQ recipes America has ever produced. The Eastern-style is made from apple cider vinegar, red pepper, sage and turmeric. You can be forgiven for thinking that ingredient list sound like something a wellness guru would encourage you to do shots of everyday...but instead, this is a +100 year old BBQ recipe from Wilson, NC. An Ed Mitchell classic. this is the recipe that helped Ed beat Bobby Flay and helped him win multiple global BBQ awards. Ed’s original recipe called for just a tad of sugar, but when Ed was diagnosed as prediabetic, he had to wonder if that “tad” of sugar was hurting him and his family. Working with True Made Foods, we used our blend of North Carolina grown butternut squash and carrots to add that tad of sweetness to Ed’s otherwise spicy, vinegar sauce - creating a new classic that takes our BBQ “back to its roots,” literally and figuratively.
