I do not know if I would like David NC bar b q sauce, but I noticed it is lower in calories and carbs!

Hello Jano

I have had NC BBQ and it is traditionally more tangy because of the amt. of vinegar they use. I really liked it, but have not tried David's version of it. I don't care for an oversweet bbq sauce so this one sounds better to me. I probably won't order it but just wanted to let you know my experience with the NC BBQ.

I watched the first presentation last night and the Corky's guy commented that there are two kinds of bbq sauce, tomato-based and the NC vinegar-based. Well, he was not correct and left out the SC mustard-based which is very popular where I live.

I'm from NC, so since I grew up on the vinegar sauce, I'm probably a little biased. I love vinegar based sauces. In fact, I live in eastern NC, so in our pulled pork or chopped pork, our sauces are primarily vinegar with pepper and maybe a little sugar. Western NC barbecue has some ketchup/tomato sauce in it. You'll find various combos across the state. I definitely prefer the vinegar based sauces over the tomato based sauces! It definitely has a "kick" to it!

Sad to see that all 3 sauces contain HFCS.

I would love to try the mustard based. That sounds very good. I did order the honey bbq. I was afraid I would not like the vinegar!!!

crush, the vinegar based you describe is the NC BBQ that I know, not the ketchup/tomato based QVC showed. It is very good!

Check out Shealy's BBQ in Batesburg-Leesville, SC. I think they sell online and their BBQ is famous around here. and it is mustard based.

I wondered about the new sauce too. They don't have Corkys restaurants here in Texas, but we had them in Georgia and loved them.

I'm an NC girl, too. I prefer the vinegar based sauce too. I have eaten BBQ in all parts of NC, SC, and Texas, where we lived for a while when my husband was in the army. In Texas the 'que is usually beef, and a lot of it is beef brisket. It is all good, just a matter of acquired taste.

My late husband was an excellent bbq chef, Eastern NC sauce. He made his own vinegar based sauce and cooked on a charcoal fired pig cooker. He added hickory chips to the fire. Awesome! To each his/her own, just enjoy!

The sauce's sound good but the ribs I ordered sure didn't look like on the presentation. I can't believe they were named #1 ribs. Mine were small and grisly with almost no meat. I haven't ordered any food since the ribs, crab cakes and steakburgers. The crabcakes were tossed and burgers were refunded.

I'm from Memphis & dearly love Corky's sauce; I buy 2 gallons of it when I visit. I must admit I've not developed a taste for vinegar, mustard, white, or other eastern sauces, though Sconyers' (Augusta) is superb.

However, the HFCS has got to go from all of it!{#emotions_dlg.scared}

With all that being said, delicious BBQ is enjoyed best without any sauce to mask the skill of the pit master as well as the quality of the meat!
