There is nothing NC about this sauce.

Excellent! We only made this up overnight but it was wonderful! Thanks so much. Next time I am going to tinker with it a bit.

This is good, but the name is misleading. It's more of a TX or KC type sauce than traditional NC barbecue.

Excellent in/on roast pork. I cut the crushed red pepper in half since my wife and kids aren't big on spice. I like to brown pork loin then slow cook it in a crock pot with about 1-2 cups of this. Once shredded it is ready for the rest of the gang, and I can add a little more sauce at the table to get it where I want it.

This is o.k. It's like what you would find more in Western NC. We use a tomato based sauce.
