Commercial versions of NC Vinegar-based and Mustard-based sauces?

Are there any commercial versions of the NC-style BBQ sauces that folks have tried and liked? We're from Canada and really enjoyed them on our last road trip.
 
Thanks in advance.

    I can't speak for mustard-based sauces, but with respect to vinegar-based, I tried Scott's and loved it.  There's no sugar in it, so it has quite a vinegar & spice kick to it, but just like The Big Bopper, that's-a what I like.  Note the reviews from New York Times and Food & Wine.

    Honestly, I can't imagine why you'd want to buy a commercial East Carolina vinegar sauce.  It's so very easy to make your own and you can vary the recipe to suit your own taste.  Here is a typical basic recipe:
     

    Ingredients


  • 1 c. Vinegar (usually apple cider vinegar)
  • 2 Tbsp. Brown sugar
  • 2 Tbsp. Red pepper flakes
  • 1 tsp Cayenne
  • 1 tsp Black pepper
  • 1 tsp Salt
  • 1/2 c. Water (optional) Directions
  • Pour it all in a wine bottle, stick the cork back in and give it a shake.
  • No refrigeration necessary.

    You can certainly use less sugar or even none if you want.   East Carolina sauces have only 2 essential ingredients:   Vinegar and red pepper.

    Now mustard sauces burn pretty easily. Sugar content. only apply at the end
    But it so easy to make your own and better.

    Most Carolinians who prefer vinegar-based sauce use Scott's at home. Visitors often think that there's an actual Scott's restaurant in Goldsboro where it's made, but there isn't -- not even a storefront. I always bring a bottle or two back to New England when I visit my family in the Carolinas, and it's the best sauce for cooking BBQ at home.  Their motto is "The Best Ye Ever Tasted," and I agree.  As for mustard-based sauce, Maurice's in Columbia, SC is the standard that is most readily available.  Carolina Treet is also good but it's not yellow mustard-based like Maurice's.    Chris

    I also like Shealy's.  I use it on chicken during it's last minutes on the grill.

    I am NC born and bred and I use a recipe similar to the one above. You can adjust it to your suit your taste. I never buy it in a bottle.

    FYI...I make my own vinegar sauce on occasion as well, but one reason we buy Scott's or another commercial version is that they typically use a higher-acidity vinegar than is available to the public in supermarkets.   Therefore, those sauces have quite an intense kick to them that comes from the vinegar alone.  In Roadfood terms, "extra deliciousness".

    The Salt Lick has a mustard based sauce which is unique to sauces here in Texas. For some it is a aquired taste.
    I just had a epiphany. I have some of their sauce and leg of lamb. I now know what my first meal for the new year will be.
     
    While walking through the aisles of the store yesterday, I saw this offering from Cattleman's....
    http://www.amazon.com/Cattlemens-Carolina-Tangy-Barbecue-Sauce/dp/B000Z7KR6A 
    It may not be the best version, but it may indicate that this taste is going mainstream.

    My husband loves the mustardy-black peppery sauce and after a bottle of it broke in my suitcase, I decided it would be a lot easier to make some for him.  Here's the recipe I use:
     
    MUSTARD BBQ SAUCE
     
    2/3 cup yellow prepared mustard
    1/2 cup white sugar
    1/4 cup brown sugar
    1 cup cider vinegar
    2 Tbs. chili powder
    1 tsp. black pepper
    1 tsp. white pepper
    1/4 tsp. cayenne pepper
    4 to 5 drops Tabasco sauce
    1/2 tsp. soy sauce
    1 Tbs. butter
     
    Combine all ingredients except soy sauce and butter in saucepan and simmer for 10 minutes.  Remove from heat.  Stir in soy sauce and butter.

    Based on Chewy's recommendation, I hereby resolve to try Shealy's Vinegar & Pepper Sauce in the new year.    (Don't think I can handle the mustard one, though.)

    Shealy's is excellent.
     
    I just had to get over the yellow color.
