dukes bbq sauce review

Duke's mayonnaise has been a South Carolina favorite since 1917 when Eugenia Thomas Duke created it to adorn her sandwiches for soldiers at Camp Sevier in Orangeburg County, SC. It took off and she sold the brand in 1929 to C.F. Sauer Company who stayed with the brand for over a hundred years until 2019 when Falfurrias Capital Partners purchased it and added more products to the Duke's line, including this Carolina Vinegar BBQ Sauce.

The latest in Duke's Southern Sauce line, which debuted in 2020 with six BBQ flavors inspired by regional South recipes, this is a traditional tomato-based barbecue sauce that hails from the Piedmont region of western North Carolina. Born out of a state-wide barbecue divide, this vinegar-based recipe adds just a hint of tomato paste for sweetness and to help balance the tangy vinegar & spices. The result is a delicious pork essence shines through the flavorful bourbon-infused sauce without becoming overwhelming. It's also perfect for replacing your mayo in slaw salads. This sauce is made with no high-fructose corn syrup and no artificial colors.
