North Carolina Style Vinegar Sauce



North Carolina barbecue dates back to the emergence of hog cultivation and food made from them as the centerpiece of many gatherings. North Carolina has a proud tradition of barbecue being features at family and community gatherings. Within North Carolina there lie 2 different styles of barbecue. Eastern style is whole hog type of barbecue and is said to “use every part of the hog except the squeal.” this style uses vinegar and pepper base with no tomato whatsoever. While on the other hand there is Lexington style which uses only the pork shoulder. This style uses a red sauce or dip made from vinegar, tomatoes, and typically red pepper flakes.

This is the best Carolina style sauce I have ever had. We put it in a mason jar in the fridge and it is still good a month later.

I am thinking for the next batch of doubling the red pepper, but this was so good as is, you don’t need to unless you want more zing…
