I start my BBQ sauce by building a flavor base of vinegar and spices, and then reducing the vinegar by as much as 3/4. This creates a heavily spiced reduction. It creates both sour and sweet flavors without getting that burned taste that a long boil with sugar can create. From there, I add both sweeteners and raw vinegar to build both flavor and proper viscosity. In this way, I get cleaner sweet and sour flavors as well as thorough spice infusion and control over all aspects of the sauce. I like to use whole fresh chile peppers at the end of the reduction for infusion of heat.

I use this for my Carolina Pork Sauce. Bragg unfiltered apple cider vinegar. Can be had in most larger chain stores and online. Is this a post pump

The folks a Cook's Illustrated did a taste testing recently of Apple Cider Vinegar

I haven't used Vinegar often and I seldom mop.
I will occasionally mark my territory (spraying)
