Returning the original question, I have to say stick with your Carolina sauce & call it yours. If you're going to use store bought sauces - DEFINITELY leave them in the original bottle. I used to go to a Cajun joint where they had their house hot sauce but the walls were lined with 100s of other sauces. Found some great ones there.
My ego is a bit too big to deal with seeing some one in my joint using some crappy store bought sauce instead of my home made ones. That said - I have been thinking of bringing in a few from the recent Saveur BBQ issue's list of best sauces. They are regional high quality sauces not found around my area.
My philosophy is: Give your customers something extraordinary & they will appreciate it & become loyal fans.
Give your customers the same old LCD commercial crap & you'll make guys like me rich.
