Taking a page from the Democratic National Committee’s barbecue sauce contest (which I was invited to help judge but unfortunately could not participate), the Charlotte Observer and Raleigh News & Observer are seeking the best amateur sauce recipe in the state.
The Great N.C. Barbecue Sauce Contest offers a cash prize ($100) and “bragging rights” (
pricelessworthless) to the winner. The contest is open to residents of North or South Carolina who are at least 18 years old. Makers of commercially sold sauces are not eligible. Enter by 5 p.m. on April 27th at charlotteobserver.com/food or nando.com/saucecontest
