Though barbecue sauce can be used to power tractors or grease slip 'n' slides, it’s best for making beans sing and chickens dance. Start a party on the tongue's floor with today’s Groupon: for $15, you get a gift box of four gourmet barbecue sauces from Carolina Gold (a $30 value). Today's deal includes the cost of tax and shipping to customers in South Carolina, North Carolina, Florida, Georgia, Virginia, and Tennessee.
Carolina Gold's locally produced all-natural flavor-makers contain no preservatives, cholesterol, or MSG, and they are recognized by the National Barbecue Association—an infinitely more reliable source than the National Association for Mint Sauce Advancement. Each saucy gift box fields a mixed stable of Carolina Gold's tangy slatherings: one bottle of spicy hot, one bottle of honey sauce, and two bottles of its golden-hued classic sauce. A large list of recipes available on its website acts as a handy guide for newly sauced chefs, who might otherwise mistake it for a shampoo, instead of the delicious aftershave it was meant to be.
