Kansas City meets Carolina BBQ Sauce

The lifelong feud of the Kansas City BBQ Sauce VS Carolina Style BBQ Sauce continues, as it has since the beginning of BBQ Sauces being marketed. Kansas City Barbecue Sauce or Carolina style Barbecue Sauce lovers say the two shall never meet. Apparently, they are not married to me now, are they?

Today, was the day to end the BBQ dispute in our household by compromising my usual favorite recipe for BBQ Sauce, yes by now most of you know I am a Kansas City BBQ sauce girl and that darn husband of mine is a Carolina Style BBQ monster, I mean guy. Did I really say that? OK, yes, I did but of course in good fun.

The lifelong feud of the Kansas City BBQ Sauce VS Carolina Style BBQ Sauce continues, as it has since the beginning of BBQ Sauces being marketed. Kansas City Barbecue Sauce or Carolina style Barbecue Sauce lovers say the two shall never meet. Apparently, they are not married to me now, are they?I totally wondered what would happen If I just changed things up a little and just gave him his mustard base, sigh yet I would be missing my tomato base, wouldn’t I? My sweet, dark, beloved BBQ sauce oh, how I would miss that deliciously comforting flavor today. Or would I? Not on your life sister!

I decided in every marriage or relationship there must be some form of compromise to keep the heavenly peace from above. So what would it hurt if I joined his flavors with my flavors? I decided not to say a word for fear the usual disagreements on BBQ sauce would be in full force and just decided to have my Kansas City Style meet his Carolina Style BBQ sauce and see if they might form a bonding relationship of tastiness and so my journey began.

I sat down, looking over my usual suspect recipe and instantly, I had the solution to our long battle over the BBQ styles, there would be World Peace, love, devotion, and hopefully, yes, hopefully, yumminess and none of his manly complaining across my lovely glass table. Tonight, I would become super wife saving myself from the comments of that husband of mine about his Carolina BBQ Sauce.

    Just found your blog and have spent hours on it, loving! My husband and I are also at odds with bbq sauces. We are originally from the northeast but have become Florida transplants. I like the mustard sauces and he likes the ketchup sauces. Recently, we were having guests for dinner and I had a lot of defrosted ribs. I smothered them with dijon mustard then put on my dry rub. Slow roasted in the oven and transfered to grill. Used a ketchup based bbq sauce on grill. We’re told by many that they were the best ribs they had ever had. Some were even from Texas. In the end, there were no ribs left just ribeye steaks. Keep up the recipes and fabulous stories.
