Our Recipe No. 5, S.C. Mustard Barbecue Sauce or shall we say our take on the mustard style bbq sauce, it is a perfect combination of sweet, savory and a hint of earthiness that makes this sauce so unique. We understand that if you are not from the South (GA, NC, SC) you may have never heard of mustard based bbq sauce, so here is a brief history of the sauce style.
Germans began migrating to the region at the end of the 18th century, particularly the central portion of South Carolina and parts of Northern Georgia. With them came mustard. Germans love the combination of mustard and pork and in the Carolinas, barbecue means pulled pork. Slowly, mustard was integrated as an ingredient in the sauces served with barbecue produced in this region.
Some people call this Carolina Gold style BBQ sauce, but we will stick to S.C. Mustard Sauce
