Being a conflicted Tarheel (born in East NC and lived mainly in West NC and Charlotte), I thoroughly enjoy both Eastern-style Sauce and Lexington-style Sauce.

We started with this:
1 cup Distilled White Vinegar
1 cup Apple Cider Vinegar
1 Tbsp brown sugar
1 Tbsp cayenne pepper
1 Tbsp Tabasco Sauce
1 tsp salt (I used Kosher)
1 tsp ground black pepper

It doesn't mention heating in a pan or anything, but I wanted to combine the flavors before bottling. This was pretty tasty, but it really wasn't either an E NC or a Lexington sauce.

I added:

1 Tbsp Worcestershire Sauce
1 Tbsp Tabasco Chipotle Pepper Sauce

This gave it a really nice smokey flavor and brought it closer to Lexington, flavor-wise.

I'm going to have to try the sauce noted above by Tarheelsmoker...

Kind regards,
