Recipe by Chef John
"This Carolina-style barbeque sauce features fresh apple, but otherwise it's a fairly straightforward, totally in-your-face-with-tang-and-heat recipe. It is fantastic on pulled pork and molasses-brined pork chops."

Good, but needed a bit more liquid and a bit more sweetness to counter the tart. Really nice on the pork, though.
Excellent! It turned out a little too "hot" for me, so I added a little apple sauce at the last minute, but it has fabulous flavor! Used it on Chef John's grilled pork chops - so moist & delicious! You've GOT to try this! Easy & well worth the time. (oh - I 1/2'd the salt in the brine of the chops, but could still taste it...)
i was a little worried when i was making this as it smelled really vinegary (and i love vinegar) but it came out great on the molasses brined pork chops! however, non-vinegar lovers beware - this might not be the sauce for you.
Used on his brined pork chops and tuna steaks. Good on both. I thought the pork was a bit salty from the brine even after rinsing the meat before cooking. Sauce smelled of vinegar but did not taste like vinegar after grilling. I did not use all the hot pepper flakes, just sounded like a bit much. Used about half and thought it was hot enough. It was good enough I will try again.
This ended up great but was too vinegary initially so I had to add more sugars to smooth it out. In the end, it was awesome with pork chops! I used the molasses brine for the chops: tennnnnnder!
I made this today I doubled the recipe and it came out great, just what I was looking for and so easy to make! I will make this again and again!
EXCELLENT, EXCELLENT,EXCELLENT!! Basted this on this Chef's Pork Chop receipe.
