This classic recipe showcases the Western North Carolina style of BBQ sauces. Lexington, North Carolina is the epicenter for this style of BBQ while in the center of the state, the "Carolina Gold" sauce, a yellow mustard based BBQ sauce, reigns supreme and on the coast, a thin vinegar sauce is the regional specialty. This recipe makes enough sauce to feed 12 people and cans (preserves) very well.
