Vinegar Sauce for Pulled Pork
Anyone have a good vinegar sauce for pulled pork? The 1st time I tried it I was hooked. Unfortunately I can't find that recipe.

I prefer Tidewater Thin because of the added heat, but these are two similar and good sauces. Seems like Shack Attack is more popular though.

I mix up 3.5oz of yellow mustard, 3.5oz of pickle juice (or pepperoncini juice) and 1oz of Crystal hot sauce in a 8oz squirt bottle.

I use it for a slather on meats before rubs and when I’m pulling pork. Simple and tangy with a bite.

This one is Robb's:

Pork Butt Sauce

Enough for 2 pork butts

3 cups apple cider vinegar
1.5 cups brown sugar
1/4 cup ketchup
2 tbsp salt
2 tbsp pepper
2 tbsp of red pepper flakes (optional)
Squirt of your favorite hot sauce to taste (optional)

Combine ingredients and simmer for a few mins to throughly incorporate.

Authentic eastern NC sauce is dead simple. It's not really a sauce, more of a finishing seasoning. I've seen some folks just put the individual ingredients on the chopped pork and mix it in.

Vinegar (ACV is traditional, can also use distilled)
Black Pepper
Crushed red pepper

Mix and let the pepper infuse the vinegar for a few hours. Sprinkle sparingly on the chopped pork and then taste. Add more if needed. Don't overdo it - you can't slather this stuff on like you do a KC sauce.

Combine defatted pork jus (from the butt) and apple cider vinegar in a 1:1 ratio. Season with salt and pepper to taste. This is your base. You can take it in many different directions - paprika for color, cayenne for heat, brown sugar for sweetness, garlic/onion (etc) for flavor.

Tennessee Red is good but is a tad sweeter than some Vinegar sauces.

I've been using Oakland Dust Hog Sauce recently and am really enjoy it.
