Americans like barbecue and all the sauces that make this meal so finger licking good. In 2019, 8.82 million Americans used at least 4 bottles of the sweet and savory sauce we brush on our barbecue meats as they grill . And among those brands we purchase, Sweet Baby Rays barbecue sauce consistently ranks on lists of best barbecue sauces. Just do an internet search and you will find that food sites like Delish, Taste of Home, and the Kitchn, to name a few, rank the original flavor among the best. And it’s easy to understand why.
Sweet Baby Ray’s barbecue sauce got its big break when it won a rib contest in the Midwest . After its fateful victory, the now-famous brand decided to go commercial and ultimately developed a suite of sauces, expanding from its classic original barbecue to variations that include a Hawaiian flavor, Sweet & Spicy, Maple, Hickory & Brown Sugar, and more. The sauce’s moniker is a hat tip to the creator’s little brother who was nicknamed Sweet Baby Ray, and aptly so. The collection of sauces range in flavor, but there is a definite sweetness to each. However, there’s one Sweet Baby Ray’s barbecue sauce whose taste rises to the top, head and shoulders above the rest but never seems to get the love it deserves. In fact, this sauce is probably the most underrated in the Sweet Baby Ray collection. Which one is it?

What Type Of Mustard Is Best To Use
If you’ve ever made it through my 375 word super long spiel on the various types of mustard in this post, you’ll know I am a particularly huge fan of the condiment. Though I use Dijon in many of my recipes, I find that a classic yellow mustard is the best option for this bbq sauce. The mild spice and vinegary flavor of classic mustard provides an excellent base for this bbq sauce and gives it it’s signature golden-hue.
A Note For Special Diets
This Carolina Gold Mustard BBQ Sauce is gluten-free, grain-free, low-carb, and easily made friendly for Paleo and Keto diets.
For those following a strict Paleo diet, you may swap the Worcestershire sauce for coconut aminos.
For those following a strict Keto diet who do not want to consume honey , you may substitute the honey for 1 tablespoon monkfruit or equivalent sweetener. Please note that these swaps may slightly change the flavor of the bbq sauce.

The Origins Of Carolina Gold Mustard Bbq Sauce
After 5-minutes of “very careful and arduous” research, I’m inclined to believe this Eater article that claims that we owe the invention of mustard-based bbq sauce to German immigrants settling in South Carolina. After arriving the first iteration of this delicious sauce was born and dubbed ‘Carolina Gold.’
What Should I Serve This Bbq Sauce On
Really, the sky is the limit. My favorite way to serve this Carolina Gold Mustard BBQ Sauce is on these Pressure Cooker Boneless Beef Ribs, but it’s also phenomenal on shredded chicken, pork, and beef. This is a fantastic way to dress up basic grilled chicken and I have a suspicion it would be brilliant on burgers and brats too!

Is Carolina Gold Barbecue Sauce Spicy
It’s not by definition a super spicy sauce, only mildly so. If you change up the kind of mustard you use, however, it can offer more heat, or if you increase the amount of cayenne pepper. Carolina Gold can be described as a bit sour and tangy, thanks to the presence of vinegar and mustard, and the fact that it’s not overloaded with sugar, as some barbecue sauces tend to be.
