Pig Pickin Sauce by Mean Chef
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.
- Ready In:
- 1 cup cider vinegar
- 1 tablespoon brown sugar
- 1 teaspoon salt, to taste
- 1⁄2 teaspoon ground cayenne pepper
- 1⁄2 teaspoon ground black pepper
- Mix together and use to sauce pulled pork.

I am use to the molasses kind of sauce and this was a big difference. I had to try this one because the person that joined us for lunch was allergic to some ingredients in the other sauce. Personally I prefer the molasses one but they both loved this sauce. I made it to go with Recipe #26257 "So now it's Bekah's Pulled Pork Now". I served it with some homemade coleslaw and my homemade baked beans. ...Such a yummy lunch we had. Thanks for sharing this recipe Queen Dragon Mom.
I ALWAYS make this sauce when I make pulled pork. My son and I prefer it to the molasses based ones! I usually add a touch more brown sugar than is called for, and I like to sprinkle some red pepper flakes in as well. I have been using this recipe for years along with Mean Chef's Pulled Pork recipe, and cannot believe I never reviewed it before! 5 stars all the way!
