Pig Pickin Sauce by Mean Chef

READY IN: 5mins
Recipe by Queen Dragon Mom

Adopted recipe. Please note that this is not a sweet BBQ sauce at all. If you are looking for a "Memphis" or "Kansas City" style sauce, with tomatoes and molasses or brown sugar, please look elsewhere or you will be disappointed. Eastern North Carolina is where you would find the original inspiration for this. Traditionally, a whole hog is cooked and this style of sauce is used both for the mop and on the side. I really like this stuff, it's a nice change from sweet sauces and makes a dynamite mop, as well. Keeps in a covered container in the fridge almost indefinitely.

This sauce is one of the three I made to go with your pulled pork. It was good, but a little too vinegary for our tastes. I'm glad we tried it but will probably stick to the molasses bbq sauce next time. We felt it took away from the flavours of the rub and the pork and kinda took our breath away with the vinegar. Thanks for the experience, it was worth trying!!
