Tim-Buck's Bar-B-Q Sauces
Margie Thompson, who owns this business with husband Tommy Thompson, has been making barbecue sauce in her own Roanoke Rapids kitchen for more than 25 years. After encouragement from friends and family, these Roanoke Electric members began bottling it for the public. Their mild and hot sauces (called Tim-Buck because that is Tommy's nickname) are sold in stores throughout eastern North Carolina and Virginia as well as online. A set of three bottled sauces (16 fluid ounces each) sells for $12 and they can mix hot and mild bottles for the set upon request.
