Greensboro, NC - You don't really hear Champagne and Bar-B-Que sauce in the same sentence. So why does one Piedmont family call their sauce "The Champagne of Sauces?"
Charles Shepperd Jr. feels his sauce is the premier sauce on the market.
It all started for Shepperd at an early age when he began to hone his skills in the kitchen before he could drive. After attending Western Culinary Institute in Portland, Oregon, the Alton, Illinois native developed his "Sir Charles Gourmet Barbecue Sauce" some 13 years-ago. The sauce contains NO preservatives, NO MSG, is Gluten Free and is all natural.
He along with his wife Carmencita prepare the sauce weekly in a kitchen in Rockingham County and sell the sauce at the Greensboro Farmers Curb Market on 501 Yanceyville Street. You can also pick up a bottle at Fleet Plummer 2437 Battleground Avenue in Greensboro.
