Carolina Vinegar Sauce appreciation thread...What's your favorite recipe? Product?
In appreciation of great vinegar, I was inspired to ask you all for your favorite Vinegar/Carolina Style BBQ sauce recipes or recommendations...This style of BBQ sauce has quickly become one of my favorites and I'd like to learn more.
It is growing on me. I will be very interested in the responses too
Here is one that I use..carolina sauce is my favorite when it comes to pulled pork. this will make quite a bit so either make it and store it or adjust measurements to what you need. This is the tame version. When I want to kick it up a notch I add a tablespoon of crushed red pepper and a teaspoon cayenne. Enjoy
4 cups Cider vinegar
2 cups Tomato sauce
1/2 cup brown sugar
8 Teaspoons Worcestershire
4 Teaspoons Hickory Bacon salt
1 Tablespoon Smoked Paprika
1 Teaspoon Franks Red Hot
1 Teaspoon Black Pepper
Wilber's (Goldsboro), Scott's(Goldsboro), Clear Run Farms(Harrell's), and Charlie Mill's Famous BarBQ Sauce mix( Nuhunta Pork Shop, Pikeville) Yumm!
My Carolina style sauce for pulled pork. Pretty simple:
2 cups apple cider vinegar
3/4 cup brown sugar
3/4 cup ketchup
2 tsp coarse black pepper
1 tsp kosher salt
1 tsp cayenne
This is from Mike Mills book "Peace Love and BBQ" , It is my favorite sauce for all meats.
1 cup light corn syrup(Karo)
1 cup white vinegar
1/2 cup water
3 tablespoons ketchup
2 taplespoons sugar
1 tablesppon unsulfured molasses
1 1/2 teaspoons pectin(Sure-Jell)
2 teaspoons yellow mustard
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1 1/2 teaspoons black pepper
1 1/2 teaspoons red pepper flakes
1/2 teaspoon paprika
Blend together in saucepan over medium heat.
Slowly bring to a boil. Cool and transfer to
container. Keep in fridge.
I made this for a recent party and got many compliments:
Fat Johnny's Bastardized Piedmont Sauce
1 quart cider vinegar
12 oz Sweet Baby Ray's BBQ Sauce
1/3 cup packed brown sugar
1 T red pepper flakes
2 T salt
1 tsp black pepper
1 tsp celery seed
2 T Worchestershire sauce
Juice of one lemon
1 T chipotle powder
1 tsp dry mustard
1 T onion powder
Bring to the boil, then simmer for 10-15 minutes. Let cool, and bottle. Great with Carolina style pulled pork BBQ sands.
I too am interested in this thread. Being from TX, more than several area sauces are rich in a tomato base and pepper. I personally like twangy vinegar at times too.
Do you want a differentiation between a finishing sauce(such as for pulled pork) and a BBQ sauce? Just curious.
I really like this one, and its very simple. It's the "Vaunted Vinegar Sauce" from the Smoke & Spice cookbook.
2 cups cider vinegar
1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
2 tablespoons Sugar or brown sugar
1 teaspoon Cayenne or hot red pepper
2 teaspoons salt
I like Craig (Meathead) Goldwyn's Lexington Dipping Sauce. You can find his recipe and a thousand other tips and techniques on his wonderful website, Amazingribs.com.
This always gets rave reviews, and is terrific on ribs and pulled pork:
Yield: Makes about 1 1/2 cups.
Preparation time: About 30 minutes.
1 cup distilled vinegar (do not use cider vinegar)
1/4 cup ketchup
1/4 cup apple juice
1 teaspoon hot sauce
3 tablespoons light brown sugar
1/2 tablespoon salt
1 teaspoon crushed red pepper
1 teaspoon finely ground black pepper
I love the stuff! I keep it simple.
1 quart cider vinegar
2 tbsp salt
1 tbsp cayenne pepper
1 1/2 tbsp red pepper flakes
1/2 cup light brown sugar
1/2 tbsp or more hot pepper sauce. I like franks xtra hot.
Here is one of my basic sauces:
Eastern NC Pulled Pork Sauce
½ gallon cider vinegar
1 cup light brown sugar (packed)
¼ cup sea salt
¼ cup crushed red pepper
1 Tbs. cayenne pepper
1 tsp. black pepper
¼ cup Texas Pete
my North Carolina BBQ Sauce
1/2 quart cider vinegar
1 1/4 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
1 1/4 tbsp Texas Pete or Tabasco
3 tbsp black pepper
3 tbsp salt
1- 16 oz ketchup
3 tsp dry mustard
1/2 + 1/8 cup brown sugar
1 tsp red pepper flakes
Heat and boil until brown sugar dissolves. (You may simmer longer – it will get spicier the longer it cooks.)
