Barbecue sauce is an American cultural phenomenon. A source of regional pride, recipes have evolved along with the populations of specific areas. Our new Carolina Gold BBQ Sauce is inspired by some of the classic creations found in the Midlands of South Carolina, where 18th century German immigrants brought with them a distinctive, yellow mustard-style sauce, which they combined with the local pork barbecue.
True to barbecue sauce traditions, our Carolina Gold BBQ Sauce carries an authentic Trader Joe’s take. It offers the bright tang of yellow mustard, balanced by sweet and smoky molasses, the vibrancy of vinegar, tomato puree & Worcestershire, and a blend of spices, including a kick of cayenne pepper. It’s a bit sweeter than the sauces from which it descends, which enhances its versatility. Trader Joe’s Carolina Gold BBQ Sauce is great used as a marinade or a glaze for grilled meats (mmm, 7 Spice Ribs); as a dressing for sandwiches, slaws or salads; or as a dipping sauce for sweet potato frites, chicken strips or your fingers. Delivering on the promise of mouth watering, this sauce is as good as gold, especially at just $2.69 for each 18 ounce bottle.
