Low-Country Barbecue Sauce (Mustard Based)

Low-Country Barbecue Sauce (Mustard Based) created by queenbeatrice

Mustard-based sauce is a South Carolina specialty. I really love this on slow cooked pulled pork, cooked on the grill over indirect heat or cooked in a smoker.

    This is not a lowcountry barbecue sauce. Mustard sauces are from the midlands, and they're not anywhere close to this sweet. If you want a lowcountry sauce, leave out the sugar, the green pepper, and the mustard and add hot sauce. If you want a midlands sauce, leave out 2/3 of the sugar (but the lowcountry sauce is better.) This isn't a bad recipe for mustard chicken, but it bears no resemblance whatsoever to South Carolina food.

    I really enjoyed this BBQ sauce. DH wanted his with Texas BBQ Sauce so I cut the recipe in half. Did not have green peppers, but used everything else, changing the proportions a little as I went. Since I was making such a small amount I winged it a bit on the measuring! Did not have dark brown sugar so added a bit more molasses to compensate. Turned out wonderful! Thanks so much for sharing!
