I made this in my small crock this past weekend and have been eating it for lunches each day. It's very tasty. I used a couple of additional spices (1/2 tsp each of dry mustard and chili powder and 1/4 tsp of paprika) in the sauce, to match a barbecue sauce recipe I've used for ribs. I forgot to add the vinegar at the end, however, but I haven't missed it so far. I'll try to remember next time.
