Charlie began helping his father and neighbors barbeque pigs as a boy growing up in Eastern North Carolina. The method of cooking at that time was to dig a rectangular pit two feet deep, stretch wire across the pit, place the pig on the wire, obtain coals from burning oak wood, and put tin over the pig to retain heat.
As Charlie grew, he continued to improve the flavor of the mix that was passed down to him. He even cooked barbeque to raise money for his wedding. Charlie’s friends and neighbors began requesting that he provide them with the dry mix. The word spread and the requests increased. In the 1970’s, his wife, Eula Mae, helped with packaging the mix in Zip Lock bags at their kitchen table and selling it. Unable to manually mix the volume needed, the mixture today is commercially prepared.
Charlie’s son, Jarvis Mills, has continued to sell the product by word of mouth and lives in Greenville, NC. Charlie’s granddaughter, Wendy Mills Sandy, is continuing the tradition via web-site to continue to provide the Eastern North Carolina vinegar-based barbeque sauce mix to the ‘next generation’.

- CHARCOAL COOKER WITH COVER
- We have found the ideal distance from the charcoal is 10 to 18 inches. Ideal cooking temperature is 275°-325°F.
- After charcoal is fully ignited, spread uniformly. Add 1/3 of original quantity on top of ignited coals, this will assure adequate heat to cook.

- Turn chickens over, apply CHARLIE MILLS FAMOUS BAR-B-QUE SAUCE on inside of chickens two or three times during the additional 45 minutes of cooking time.

- We like to cut wings off (remove tips), cook along with chickens. They will cook sooner and will give you something to eat early.
- Place cooked chickens, inside up, in a cooler and pour 1/8 cup of sauce on each half. This needs to be done 1/2 to 1 1/2 hours prior to eating.
