Four Regional Flavors, Hand-Picked by Sonny’s Pitmasters
- Carolina style BBQ is known for its historical tradition of whole-hog barbecue, characterized by slow-smoked pork. While there is a lot of nuance within the bbq regions of the Carolinas, South Carolina is particularly famous for its mustard-based BBQ sauce, often called Carolina Gold. Sonny’s new Carolina Pulled Pork is lightly dusted with their popular pork rub and topped with this tangy and sweet mustard sauce.
- Memphis style barbecue is renowned for its emphasis on pork, especially pork ribs. The staple of Memphis style BBQ is its famous dry rub, which consists of a blend of spices that creates a flavorful crust and enhances the smoky taste of the ribs. Sonny’s Memphis Dry-Rubbed Ribs highlight this particular technique, and are seasoned with a bold and smokey Memphis inspired dry rub.
- Alabama style BBQ is rooted in a rich culinary history of slow-cooked smoked meats specifically pork, chicken, & turkey. White sauce, a hallmark of Alabama BBQ, is a creamy and tangy condiment made from mayonnaise, vinegar, and various seasonings that pairs perfectly with savory smoked chicken. As such, Sonny’s introduced their new Alabama White Sauce to pair perfectly with their Smoked Wings.
- Florida style BBQ reflects a diverse blend of influences, including Southern, Caribbean, and Latin American flavors. The state is known for its citrus-based BBQ sauces, which incorporate Florida’s abundant citrus fruits, such as oranges. To honor this style, Sonny’s new Florida Smokin’ Citrus Sauce provides a unique, tangy, and sweet flavor to top their Smoked Wings.
