About Us

History of "Old Coots Carolina Red" BBQ Sauce

Steve Mirman, Attorney and BBQ lover, set out to find the perfect combination of traditional Eastern North Carolina style, vinegar based sauce with the sweeter Western Carolina style and Old Coots was born.  This sauce is the perfect flavor combination for your BBQ pork, chicken, seafood, beef  or vegetarian dish and is just right to be used as a marinade for your favorite food.  "Old Coot", pictured on the label, lived in the Carolina hills until her death in 2012 and when my wife captured her unique image in a photograph, I knew that my sauce finally had a face.  Old Coots Carolina Red is manufactured locally in a U.S. Dept. of Agriculture approved facility under my supervision and is distributed by Old Coots, LLC.  I hope that you enjoy this sauce as much as I enjoy making it and please ask your local store to carry Old Coots.
