Big Eds Barbecue SauceNothing says “Southern” like a big ‘ol plate of barbecue topped with Big Ed’s Heirloom BBQ Sauce. The flagship product of Pigtail Brands, this sauce is a tangy, vinegar-based heirloom barbecue sauce and marinade with just a hint of pepper and a slight sweet undertone.

Price: $6.75 per bottle | Available at grocery stores and retailers around the state or shop online at pigtailbrands.com.
