    BeachGirl's Note:

    A slightly sweet, mustard-based barbecue sauce popular in South Carolina for use when grilling or roasting chicken and pork. Recipe is for a mild version - with an optional Hot version. If you like really browned chicken, start basting early; otherwise, baste frequently after the first 30 minutes of grilling. For crockpot BBQ, add 1 cup of sauce the crockpot with boston butt, and cook until very tender. Chop pork, place in buns, and serve with extra sauce.(serving=1/4 cup)

    8. 8
      Our favorite way to use this sauce (1) poured over chopped pork on buns or (2) to baste bone-in chicken when grilling.
    9. 9
      The sooner you baste, the more browned the chicken gets, and we like it browned and charred (not burned), so we baste early and frequently.

      This is a really good sauce for bbq. I've used it too many times to count. I have subed some brown sugar for the white sugar when I didn't have molasses. My son loves this sauce. This makes a good bit of sauce, sometimes I put some in a separate container and make it hot! I injected some into a boston butt and have it cooking in the oven now. It smells soooo goood! Thanks!
