Trader Joe's Carolina Gold Barbeque Sauce
I make about 4 trips to Trader Joe's every year. About once a quarter, I'll head there with Nat and the girls on one of their bi-weekly trips. Sometime last year, I found this sauce on one of the end caps. I grabbed a bottle and fell in love. Now, my experience with Trader Joe's is that they don't keep products on their shelves very long if they don't sell well, so I was concerned that when we went back a week or two later, it would be gone.
But, much to my surprise, we've been able to buy the stuff at regular intervals over the last six months. I've been using it on a Detroit-style BBQ Chicken Pizza that I've been making and - for my money - the sauce is the boss. I have 2 bottles sitting on the shelf in the pantry and I've just added it to the list for our next trip to TJs.
I better stock up in case the fine folks at Trader Joe's change their mind and stop carrying the stuff.
