"Every BBQ novice (experts, too) should buy Mike Mills' book "Peace, Love, & BBQ" for recipes and BBQ lore... what a fun read and window into many regional favorites. Mike is certainly confident (and its justified): he declares that HIS Carolina Style Mustard BBQ Sauce would be used by the legendary Maurice Bessinger (SC BBQ restauranteur) if only he had it! I told this to my neighbor who likes mustard sauces & has been known to frequent Maurice's establishments when I gave him a sample made according to Mike's recipe. Later on he informed me that Mike could be right... he liked Mike's Sauce better than Maurice's. Moreover, he wanted the recipe! I have tweeked the recipe a bit and love this sauce better than all other mustard-based sauces I have tried. It is also delicious on HAM sandwiches & sausage biscuits!"

"My daughter loves this recipe and said I had to try it. I live in Columbia SC the home of Bessinger's Piggy Park and this BBQ sauce is pretty close to Maurice's sauce. I was short on time and didn't have any tomato paste so I had to make it with ketchup instead of the tomato paste - so the recipe may be even better than what I made - I will definitely make it with paste the next time to taste the difference."
