Authentic regional BBQ sauces have the ability to take your meat to the next level, creating rich flavour profiles as either as a mop, a glaze or a dipping sauce.
Just as each region has it’s style of cooking and meat preferences, sauces are very much regional as well (like our Carolina Style Vinegar Sauce).
While certainly not comprehensive, this interactive infographic will give you an idea of some of the main ones.
One of my favourite videos on sauces is this one from Southern Living. It goes to show the influence of different cultures on the sauces, the ingredients that pair it with meat, and that it doesn’t need to be a million ingredients to make a great tasting sauce.
