A NC home-style
Jim’s Own Sauce is an award winning range of Home-style North Carolina BBQ Sauces and Rubs that started out of Jim Arnold’s house in Durham during the mid-1990’s.
Jim, a teacher in Durham NC, used his mom’s trusted sauce recipe and became so successful that he went into the sauce business full time in 1997.
Jim’s Own offers consumers high quality, gluten free sauces. The sauce range includes Mild (Original Homestyle), Hot, Mustard, Smokey, an Eastern NC style Vinegar and Sticky Q – a dark, velvety, thicker sauce made with real molasses. Our flavor-packed rubs and seasonings come in a variety of flavors and styles. For more details about our sauces, rubs and seasonings go to the PRODUCTS page.

My children and grandchildren say ribs and brisket are just a delivery system for Jim's Own Sauce.

Thanks for your help. I am a southern girl living out West and I need my bar-b-que fix. My friend brought me a bottle back from NC over the summer and I have been rationing it so it will last. I would love to be able to get some more!

I received the free Smokey Rub yesterday. Thank you so much! I have the Mild Rub now and used it last week on some ribs which were awesome. I can't wait to try the Smokey!
MJ in Charlotte, NC
Love it, so good, had a sample at Costco and purchased a large bottle, then last week at my local Harris Teeter I got the one with the mustard, all I can say it good job, it's delicious. Tonight I'm making my chicken legs with it, last week had it on my fish, excellent.

Used some of your Smokey rub on some baby back ribs this weekend and cooked on my Big Green Egg. Loved the flavor! Would love to try out other sauces and rubs. Used the same Smokey Rub today on a 9.5lb Boston Butt. Taste turned out beautifully!

Killer ribs, with Jim's rub and sauce. If this isn't heaven, I damned sure must be close.
