What started as a personal journey to learn about making sauces with the fresh ingredients he was growing in his garden, Mark was intrigued by hot sauce, any hot sauce, every hot sauce he could taste and became convinced that he had something to offer those who enjoy smoke, bold flavors, heat, and flavors of chiles.  After spending more than a year researching, experimenting and creating sauces, Round Mountain Sauces was formed to bring these delicious sauces to your table.  Enjoy!

What makes our sauce special?
Smoke!  We smoke our sauces with various woods; pecan, hickory, apple, maple which creates an amazing flavor combination with chiles, onions and other spices.  We balance the smoke flavors with the other ingredients to make sure it's never too smoky or not smoky enough.  All of our sauces are hand crafted, made in small batches with the finest, freshest quality,  locally sourced (when possible)  ingredients available.  

Our sauces are really unique and the process to create our gourmet products is lengthy and time consuming.  To that end, we limit where the sauce can be sold to just a few stores in and around Black Mountain, NC.  Why?

Black Mountain, NC is a really special place we call home.  We know the people and the surroundings, the restaurants and we think our sauces belong here and not everywhere.  There is no reason for us to expand as our customers have slowly grown into true fans which supports our desire to manufacture and sell these special smoked sauces.  For instance, The Straightaway Cafe uses our sauces in their culinary creations much to the delight of their patrons.  What can be more memorable than having a delicious, unique flavor experience while taking in the the beautiful surroundings at The Straightaway Cafe?  Plus, you can take a bottle(s) of your favorite sauce home with you right there when you visit the Round Mountain Sauces display at Straightaway Cafe.

You can also purchase our sauces, when we decide to share it with other areas of the South, at the many festivals we attend each year.  Check out the Blog page for more info about the next festival event we will be attending.
