Barbecue sauce prevents meat's essence from escaping to form unwieldy biceps in the arms of children and hide all of the vegetables. Keep the spirit of meat in check with today's Groupon: for $10, you get a gift box with four flavors of gourmet barbecue sauce from Carolina Gold (a $19.94 value). Tax and shipping is included.
Carolina Gold's locally produced flavor makers contain no preservatives, cholesterol, fat, or MSG, and they are recognized by the National Barbecue Association—an infinitely more reliable source than the National Association for Those in Favor of Mint Sauce. Bedeck bare meat with the classic barbecue, spicy-hot barbecue, honey-barbecue, or vinegar-and-pepper sauce. Carolina Gold's website offers a long list of recipes for sauce-laden concoctions such as barbecue-chicken pizza, grilled barbecue quesadillas, and savory barbecue after-shave for true enthusiasts.
