    Here is one. Send me your real email if you want some variations.

    Sauce, BBQ, Eastern North Carolina

    Here's my recipe for a Vinegar based sauce for Pulled Pork when I'm not using Scott's BBQ Sauce.


    INGREDIENTS:
    1 cup cider vinegar
    2 Tbs Sea Salt
    1 Tbs Turbinado Sugar
    1/2 tsp Ground Chipotle - McCormicks
    4 Dried Cayenne peppers, split & stemmed




    Procedure:
    1 Mix all ingredients together. Let stand as long as possible, at least ½ a day, but the longer the better. It's best used in plastic "Ketchup Style" squirt bottle you can pickup at the grocery store for about a buck.

    Doug, I try never to reply to threads about fieri (if you can't say anything nice....), but as long as it's about eastern nc Q, I can't resist. :) Here's what I use. Looks just like the stuff they serve at Wilber's in Goldsboro (my favorite Q - besides mine :)). Honestly, it's been so long since I been to Wilber's I can't say it tastes the same cuz I just can't remember. good though!

    Looks like this...

    Cool! Do me a favor, please. Mix up some of mine and let me know how it compares. I really can't remember!! You can buy Wilber's online, but I never have. I just pour mine into the Wilbur's bottle I've had for years! :laugh: The label's getting a bit ratty looking. :)

    We use John Boy and Billy Cookin BBQ sauce - good stuff, tastes like the sauce you get at Parkers in Wilson.

    The one time I made a vinegar sauce, I started with a recipe much like the above. I added a little squirt of both Dijon mustard and ketchup, plus a little Worcestershire sauce as I had seen those ingredients used in similar recipes.

    It turned out great, my guests all loved it and kept going back to it instead of the sweeter sauces that we're raised with here on the west coast.

    It was my first time even trying a vinegar BBQ sauce and I was very happy with the results!
