"This type of sauce is popular in North Carolina. You can use this sauce as a basting sauce, or just mix it into your cooked meat when you are ready to eat." — Mary

Excellent! Tastes just like the real thing. Instead of mixing up and then letting it sit for 4 hours, I just stirred into pulled pork and cooked in the crockpot for a few hours. Every last bite was infused with this wonderful vinegar sauce!
Being a vinegar fan, I was looking forward to trying this sauce. I found it very tasty, but much too salty. I'll try eliminating the salt or cutting it way down next time.
HOLY COW!!!! This is incredible. I was craving Parker's BBQ(famous North Carolina BBQ restaurant) and this is the closest I could have gotten. Thank you A SIDE NOTE: I have made this recipe quite a few times since my review. Two points to add, one is that another famous BBQ restaurant in NC is Gardners. This recipe is fairly close, but perhaps more vinegar and hot than Gardners version. The second point is now I use this recipe as a way to use up my left over pork roast. I chop the meat into cubes and simmer on the stove top until meat begins to break down and vinegar is just about gone. LOVE THIS RECIPE!!!
This is very close to the real thing.
Delicious - tastes just like the vinegar based sauce at my favorite BBQ place. You really need to be a vinegar fan to like it, though (I am, and this sauce is heaven).
excellant marinade. I bake a whole chicken, pic it, shred it and then marinade in this wonderful concoction! 5 stars.
I am from NC and this is really close to being the BBQ that I remember. I will be using it all the time now. I won't have to have it shipped to WA state from NC anymore.
This was great--very authentic NC taste. I didn't have time to let it sit for a few hours, so I just blended it and put it in a pan with some cooked pork. Used about half the recipe for 3 cups of pork and it was really strong--just the way we like it! I can imagine it would be better if I allowed the flavors time to blend. As it was though, it was excellent!
