• #2 Reason to LOVE Hopewell, Prince George, Virginia

    April 20, 2017
    Today, I was having lunch with our Chamber Ambassadors and I ordered my usual favorite, a pulled pork sandwich. The barbecue sauce was sweet with a little bit of tang. Then I wondered how many different types of barbecue sauces there are. So, naturally, I googled it.

    Come to find out, each style of sauce is regionally classified. Surprisingly, Virginia is divided into 4 sauce regions. Here in Hopewell and Prince George County, our barbecue sauce falls into the Southside/Tidewater region with our long history of using mustard in our vinegar/tomato based sauces. In fact, we have several restaurants right here in our area that are world famous for their spicy barbecue blends. What a kick!
