In addition to event vending, Nick-a-Million also produces their own signature BBQ sauce and rub. The sauce is described as "Georgia style". It is tomato based, but thinner than most tomato sauces. It also has a strong vinegar tang and is finished with a bit of spice. The sauce reminds me a great deal of sauces from Southern VA and Eastern TN. These types of a sauces are tomato based, but are still heavily influenced by the vinegar sauces from their North Carolina neighbors. Nick-a-Million's sauce is a solid transition between Carolina vinegar sauces and the rich, sweet tomato sauces found in much of the Southeast and Midwest.
Nick-a-Million's BBQ rub is a sweet, brown sugar based product that is suggested for pork and chicken. I used the rub on both grilled chicken breasts and smoked pork shoulder. It was particularly good on the pork. The sugary rub created a crisp, tasty bark on the pork as it smoked. This spice rub is not alltogether different from my own basic rub recipe. The brown sugar is complimented by paprika and a variety of balanced spices.
