Signature Items

“Made just like grandma used to make it” is the best way to describe Carlie C’s signature items.

Our Nine-Layer Cakes are made fresh daily, mixing Hershey’s Cocoa, Carnation Milk, and other ingredients of our secret recipe, to create the perfect icing that drizzles down nine layers of fresh yellow cake.

Our pecan pies use only Georgia pecans, Karo syrup, and the perfect pie shells, and will bring you back in time to remember the day when you first tasted that sweet delight that garnished the Sunday table.

Our country hams are salted by hand and cured in our smokehouse the old fashioned way, never coming out of the house before the ideal cure is perfected.

Our Uncle Bob's Collards are grown locally by Mr. Carlie C’s grandson, and slow cooked using seasonings and the family recipe to create the perfect, tender dish to accompany every southern meal.

Our Eastern North Carolina BBQ uses only choice pork butts, which are slow roasted using Mr. Carlie C’s Signature BBQ sauce. Then they are chopped and the fat removed to produce the most flavorful meat you have ever put in your mouth.

Our fresh and air-dried sausage is legendary.  It is what Mr. Carlie C built his reputation on.  Using only the finest pork trimming, we daily season, mix and stuff our own sausage, adding sage to some batches to create hotter varieties, and delivering to our customers the finest and tastiest sausage anywhere.

Our meatloaf is a combination of beef and pork, ground to the perfect texture, and mixed using our secret recipe of ingredients, to produce the most mouthwatering complete dish you will ever take home.  Simply bring it home and throw it in the oven, and you have our permission to say that you made it.

The easiest meal of the week will include our fresh fried chicken or pork chops.  We worked for months to create the perfect recipe to batter our fresh, never frozen chicken and hand-cut pork chops.  When it comes to taste, we know that you will be proud to take it to any family reunion or church homecoming.

Make sure to stop by our delis and ask for a sample of our Carlie C’s Chicken Salad or Pimento Cheese, or grab a Big C Sandwich.  It makes a meal on its own.
