      I was stationed at Lejeune for five years and fell in love with the BBQ sauce. Since I left I have always been let down with "real carolina bbq sauce" This was like going home, I ran mine through a blender and it turned out fantastic!

      wonderfully easy to prepare and is perfect with the pulled pok. i wouldn't change a thing. except to add that there is no need to strain out the black peppers, they tended to remain at the bottom of the pan anyway.

      As a sauce, this was just too much vinegar for us. I did add some to the pork roast in the crock pot, and it gave the meat a really nice flavor. It was just too much by itself. I ended up adding a lot more brown sugar to it to tone the acidity down. It was a nice change from traditional bbq, though. Thanks for sharing!
