The sauce also won reserve grand champion.
Jan Campana explained that she and her husband moved to the Triangle eight years ago from California and became immersed in North Carolina's barbecue culture. Her husband joined a competition barbecue team and started testing sauce recipes. After lots of positive feedback, Jan Campana, then a stay-at-home mom, decided to try to turn their sauce recipe into a business. Two years ago, Dimples BBQ Sauce was launched.
A 16-ounce jar costs $5 online at dimplesbbqsauce.com. The website also lists local retailers that carry the sauce.
