This is my first time reviewing a recipe, because this is absolutely amazing! The closest to my beloved BBQ joint in VA that shut down I've tried! I am a HUGE vinegar sauce fan, and this does not disappoint. I made the suggested serving size for 9 people for the 4th of July, each person was able to have AT LEAST 2 sandwiches, some people even had 3! There was enough leftover for an additional 4 for lunch the next day. Make more that you think you need, because people will LOVE it and you'll be sad when there are no leftovers!
Along with some other reviews I altered this to my situation. There was no smoker or grill of access to me, so for a just shy of 5pnd butt it took about 6 hours at 275 (thanks to the other reviewers who suggested this oven only method, they were lifesavers!) I also decreased the cayenne to 1tbs, but will use the suggested amount next time as I like more spice than I thought I did! I couldn't find liquid smoke as some suggested in Lieu of smoking, and it was absolutely amazing regardless. Your house will absolutely smell like vinegar, if you find that completely offensive wait for a day you can have the windows open to make this. I also did marinate it in the sauce after shredded for some extra flavor for around 30min on the stovetop.
If you love vinegar based BBQ, you HAVE to try this!
