Our Red Hots are another signature Bright Leaf product. Red Hots came by their name honestly.

They are a great snack and party treat and fit perfectly in a biscuit, which has made them an eye-opening breakfast favorite for many folks.

Bright Leaf Old Fashioned Hickory Smoked Bacon! This is an exceptionally great tasting and quality bacon that doesn’t shrivel up when you cook it. It has great flavor and cooks up great in the pan or in the oven. The microwave can also be used, but it’s best in the oven or a frying pan.

Bright Leaf BBQ is a hickory-smoked with a secret sauce and delicious! We have been working with the great BBQ Pit Masters, Tripp and Charles Hursey, at Hursey's Bar-B-Q, to be able to bring this product to our customers! Pork BBQ like this varies across North Carolina. In the west of NC, its' really tomato sauce-based, and in the east, it's really vinegar-based. This Bright Leaf BBQ is a nice compromise between the two but leans a little more towards the traditional eastern flavor with just a touch of sweetness!

Carolina Packers believes in making the freshest, local food available. We are known for our beef and pork Bright Leaf Hot Dogs, but also we offer a line of turkey products for the more price conscience shopper. You can still expect a great fresh flavor, but with the addition of turkey. Our line of turkey products do contain a very small amount of beef and pork and consists of four different delicious items you can find below.
