Pull pork sauce

edited June 2012 in Pork
What do you like on pulled pork, vinager base or thick bbq sauce?

I personally like a thin and slighlty spicy vinager sauce so the taste of the meat comes threw.

    I like the eastern NC style sauce. Cider vinegar a little sweet and a little spice.

    When it comes to BBQ sauce I'm not particular.  I've found really thin vinegar sauces I like and thicker sauces I like also.  For pulled pork I prefer something more on the vinegar side with some kick to it.

    I made the ketchup based BBQ sauce on Elder Ward's recipe and loved it.  As it sat it thickened up but while I was cooking it it was on the thinner side and had a nice vinegar taste.  One of my favorite BBQ sauces.  Using fresh onion and garlic instead of powder/salt makes a big difference IMO.

    My sons birthday I did 15 lbs of Butt, I then made vinegar based sauce off the net for the very first time. Vinegar is the way to go for the sandwhich with a pile of slaw, it was a hit with all.

     I have to say the right combination of spices and a good smoke ring and you really don't need the sauce. The sauce just covers up what you just spent countless hours cooking to achieve.

  • Found this sauce online years ago, have no idea who to give credit to:

    South Central Carolina Gold VII
    2 cups cider vinegar
    1 cup yellow mustard
    1 cup brown sugar
    2 Tbs black pepper
    1 Tbs Worcester
    3 Tbs Tabasco
    1/2 Tbs salt

    I usually on make a 1/2 batch as it fits nicely into the bottle I keep it in.  We'll use it on just about anything.  Pork, chicken, rice, lettuce, .....

    Pile on the slaw, too.

  • I need to try a vinegar based, have never tried it!

    here's my take on a vinegar sauce
    1cup apple cider vinegar
    1 cup coca cola
    1 cup bbq sauce
    1/2 cup turbinado sugar
    salt and pepper to taste
    crushed red pepper
    franks red hot
    zest of a lemon and it's juice

    This is my favorite:

    1 Large onion diced fine

    3 tablespoons minced garlic

    1 16 oz can diced tomatoes

    1 tablespoon crushed red pepper

    3 tablespoons cayenne pepper ?

    1 cup apple cider vinegar

    3 cups BBQ sauce

    Heat BGE to 250. Combine onion garlic pepper with some oil and simmer ½ hour.

    Add cider vinegar and BBQ sauce.  Simmer additional ½ hour. Pour over pulled pork.

    I like dry rubs more these days. BBQ sauces on the side for now on.
