Local Product Spotlight - Bone Suckin' Sauce

When I started this blog, I intended to discuss all GF things in Raleigh in order to help others like me living the Gluten Free lifestyle. That includes restaurant reviews (since eating out is such a pain), where to find GF products in Grocery stores (more to come on this) as well as spotlighting local products.

Here is the first of my Local Product Spotlight series - Raleigh, North Carolina's own Bone Suckin' Sauce. According to its website, Bone Suckin' Sauce was created in 1987 by Raleigh resident Phil Ford while trying to copy his mother's recipe for a western NC-style barbecue sauce (for those of you who are new to North Carolina, Western-style translates to tomato based). For the next 5 years, Phil's family and friends encouraged him to market the sauce and in 1992 it finally happened. Then in 1994, Bone Suckin' won the "NC Battle of the Sauces". Later that year, the sauce was presented to 50,000 buyers at the International Fancy Food Show in New York City. This has lead to the sauce being exported to 40 countries.

If you have not tried Bone Suckin' Sauce, I highly suggest that you do. I have used this barbecue sauce for dipping, grilling and marinating (used it this past weekend to marinate chicken breasts for the NC State football game tailgate). The simple ingredients are as follows: Tomato Paste, Apple Cider Vinegar, Honey, Molasses, Mustard, Horseradish, Lemon Juice, Onions, Garlic, Peppers, Natural Hickory Smoke Flavor, Natural Spices, Salt & Xanthan Gum (A Natural Thickener).

Bone Suckin' Sauce can be found in the following grocery stores: Whole Foods, Earth Fare, The Fresh Market, Capital City Grocery, Harris Teeter, Kroger, Lowe's Foods and more (What's wrong with you Food Lion?). Basically, if you cannot find it you aren't looking hard enough. In addition, if you're too lazy to leave your house, you can buy Bone Suckin' on the company's website and have it delivered to your house.

In addition to Bone Suckin' Sauce, the company also makes the following products which are all Gluten Free.
  • Bone Suckin' Sauce: Regular, Hot, Thicker Style, Hot Thicker Style
  • Bone Suckin' Mustard
  • Bone Suckin' Sauce Hiccuppin' Hot
  • Bone Suckin' Seasoning & Rub
  • Bone Suckin' Salsa: Regular and Hot
  • Bone Suckin' Yaki (Contains Wheat but has less Gluten than 5 ppm)
I have recently tried the Bone Suckin' Mustard which is excellent as well.

My husband is a recent celiac and is thrilled that Bone Suckin' Sauce is gluten free. We made a rack of ribs with it last night and they were delicious. A definite must try!!!
