A win for Mooresville's Race City Sauce Works

My colleague, Raleigh food writer Debbie Moose, is an annual judge for the N.C. Hot Sauce Contest in Oxford, N.C. Tough duty, but good news for a local saucer: The winner of Critics' Choice this year is El Verde Sucio -- The Dirty Green, from Race City Sauce Works in Charlotte.

Winner of hottest sauce was Bhut Jolokia, made by Bailey Farms, while Most Unusual went to Smoking J's Jamaican Ginger.

Read about the contest and the painful duty of Hot Sauce Judge at Debbie's blog.

Ok.....the title says Mooresville's Race City Sauce Works, but the body of the article says it's in Charlotte. Kind of hard to be both, they're about 20 miles apart.

Company is based in Charlotte. Mooresville probably thrown in there because of the similarity in the "Race City" name
