    Carolina Pete just doesn't roll off the tongue quite that well 😁

    From Texas Pete history book:

    THE YEAR WAS 1929.


    “So how is it that a tasty red pepper sauce made in North Carolina happens to be named ‘Texas Pete’ anyway?” Legend has it that, when Sam Garner and his three sons, Thad, Ralph and Harold, were trying to come up with a brand name for this spicy new sauce they had created, a marketing advisor suggested the name “Mexican Joe” to connote the piquant flavor reminiscent of the favorite foods of our neighbors to the south. “Nope!” said the patriarch of the Garner family. “It’s got to have an American name!” Sam suggested they move across the border to Texas, which also had a reputation for spicy cuisine. Then he glanced at son Harold, whose nickname was “Pete” and the Texas Pete cowboy was born. Movie cowboys were very popular in the 1930’s, men like Tom Mix and Hopalong Cassidy, representing a sort of universal image of rugged independence and self-reliance, the perfect ideal for a family business trying to survive tough times. Actually, Texas Pete Hot Sauce was not the first product the Garner family made and sold. That distinction belonged to Garners’ Barbecue Sauce.

    Always keeps me some Texas Pete on hand, among me other hot sauces...
    They each shine in their own way...
    Think more like an artist havin their palette of oil pigments, an alla th swirly places thereupon, where they mix up new tints...
    I git mine from Amazon, as well.

    The bone head in me asked shouldn’t Texas Pete made in the Carolina’s be called Carolina Pete?


    I’m so sorry for this....

    I had some one suggest using sriracha sauce instead hot sauce. I have not tried it yet. Is there anyone else out there that has heard this or someone who has tried it?

    CaptGreg you can get TP on amazon for a good price, by the way. Since I live in western WA now and it is pretty impossible to find TP or Crystal locally, I end up buying them on Amazon

    I made some of this yesterday and tried it on some chicken breasts. It was really good! Next time I think I'm going to put a bit more vinegar though, I prefer the slightly more acidic sauces. But this is definitely a recipe I've bookmarked.
    So Thank You!

    I really enjoy the mustard and vinegar flavor in the Western Carolina Sauces. Thank you for sharing.

    A dear family friend who hails from Ayden, NC, taught me much of what I know about Eastern Carolina bbq. He told me that ketchup is entirely optional and he only used it when his daughters were little.

    The debate over Eastern-Western continues but the only thing agreed upon is that Cole Slaw (the stuff with mayo) doesn't belong on a sandwich. It has to be a vinegar based, "bruised" slaw and is often served on the side.

    I will hopefully make it back to Ashe County one more time this year, I will buy a bottle of TP to bring home and give it a try. Honestly I m not sure what it brings ot the table as I can't taste it after the cook but then again its a building block. This one for me has a touch of the vinegar tang but its not overpowering. Wife loves Eastern style.
