NC Style BBQ

A few weeks ago I made pulled pork. It was wonderful, but brief. The refrigerator went out that very night and I had to throw most of it away.

Today I'm firing up another batch of BBQ. It takes about twelve hours to cook.

The sauce? It is a NC original and it takes months if not years to prepare.


1 cup cider vinegar
2 tablespoons salt
1 tablespoon brown sugar
1 teaspoon cayenne
1 teaspoon red pepper flakes

Mix all ingredients together. Let stand as long as possible, at least 1/2 a day, but the longer the better. The stuff I'm using now is a few years old.

I'll let this sit in the brown jug until football season. It ages like fine wine.
