About The Inaugural
Getting Saucy with the Arc of the Lowcountry
BBQ Sauce Competition


What Makes this Competition Different?
It's All About the Sauce!

The Getting Saucy with ARC competition is South Carolina's only competition to feature the sauce as the determining factor to crown the ultimate barbeque sauce champion. Event coordinators will provide each contestant with the pork they will sauce up with their original recipe. This will ensure that all sauces are being judged independently of the pork. 

All entries must be available to purchase commercially through wholesale, retail, or direct marketing generally open to the public. Categories judged will include Mild Red (Tomato), Spicy Red (Tomato), Mustard, Vinegar, and Specialty.


The first-place winner from each category will compete head-to-head to determine the Grand Champion.


BBQ Sauce Makers Include The Motley Chew, Billy's SLAPP'N Sauce, Rising Smoke, Kees Kitchen, Sea Monster Sauces, SWAMP tonic, Cox BBQ Sauce, Dog & Duck, Mo Mo Sauce, Smoke-N-Out, Chipper Dog BBQ, Smokin' Coals, Ogre Sauces, Loyal Dogs LLC, J-Bones of Carolina Kitchen, High to Lowcountry BBQ, Baps Catering, Gar Sauce, Julz's Creations, Lillie's of Charleston, Zach's Sandwich Shack, and Big Shon's Everything BBQ.
