I live in the land of Head Country and my local markets do not offer much of a variety of bbq sauces. Was wondering if anyone could recommend a commercial vinegar bbq sauce. I have never tried Carolina style bbq and I am curious to the flavors. I would like a recommendation of one that best represents this region and I like a some heat if that helps with the recommendation.

Wicker's is great for storebought. They're calling it a marinade, but to me, it's a sauce. Ingredients are simple: Vinegar, salt, spices.
It's made in Missouri so it may be in the stores where you live. If not, here's their website store:
I've never really tried a store-bought that was representative of a true Carolina vinegar sauce, but then, I've never bought much store-bought vinegar sauce; because only takes about five minutes to make a batch of your own.

Search shack attack on the fourm very good sauce and simple to make
Thar ain't no vinegar sauce around here. Only that red or yellow stuff. Gotta go over the hill to NC to get the good stuff. Make it, it' only cider vinegar, a little water, brown sugar, crushed red pepper, garlic, and cayenne to taste. Be sure to use a fruit jar.
Scott's is a great representation of NC vinegar sauce. Highly recommended!

Scott's is good, as far as store bought, but do yourself a favor and make up some yourself. Follow chicagokp's link and look at post #14. That's the taste of eastern nc. You'll be glad you made it. :grin:
