Mark Erwin knew that if he wanted to open a barbecue restaurant in Louisville, he'd better have the sauce.
So he turned his home kitchen into a barbecue laboratory, mixing, mingling, stirring, and simmering until he found what he wanted. The result was a tangy mixture of red tomatoes, black pepper, and yellow turmeric — a sauce that any self-respecting slab of ribs or pulled pork BBQ sandwich would be proud to wear.
With homemade sauce in hand, Mark opened his restaurant and pretty soon barbecue enthusiasts from across Kentucky were following the smoke signals to Mark's Feed Store in Middletown, a Louisville suburb.
Mark's Feed Store Original BBQ Sauce is a very tasty mustard-based, slightly spicy BBQ sauce.
