Shealy's Mustard Bar-B-Que Sauce
The swath of the barbecue trail running down the middle of South Carolina is lovingly referred to as the mustard belt, where whole hog pulled pork comes dressed with a tangy mustard sauce. Located in Leesville, Shealy’s BBQ is a family-run institution that’s been serving their famed bottomless all-you-can-eat barbecue buffet since 1969. Alongside heaps of fried chicken, lima beans, creamed corn and mac n’ cheese, you’ll find the secret to their success: pulled pork doused in this sweet, acidic, spicy mustard sauce. Naturally, they wouldn’t share the house recipe with me, so you’ll have to buy it to experience what all the fuss is about.
