DIRECTIONS

  • Place the vinegar, sugar, ketchup, butter, hot pepper sauce, lemon juice, Worcestershire sauce, red pepper flakes, mustard powder, salt, and pepper into a saucepan.
  • Bring to a simmer over high heat, and then reduce heat to medium-low, and simmer about 30 minutes longer, stirring occasionally.
  • Remove from stove and pour into a heatproof bowl. Cover, and refrigerate the sauce for 2 days.
  • Strain the sauce through a sieve to remove the red pepper flakes.
  • Store the sauce in the refrigerator.
  • Bring to room temperature before serving.
  • To serve, slow cook your meat (in whichever method you prefer). When done pull the meat with a fork (it should be so well cooked, it just falls off). Add sauce and toss to coat completely. Enjoy!

“I was searching for a western NC bbq sauce for some beef for my husband and there were none on here so I am posting this one. There are disputes about how western versus eastern NC bbq sauces are made. Some say no tomato based and some say add that ketchup! I don't really know, but this is good! Transfer some of the sauce to a plastic squeeze bottle for serving, and keep the rest in a glass quart jar in the refrigerator. I don't eat meat but love to dunk my toast in this. It's also good over grilled vegetables! I borrowed this from Allrecipes, submitted by Ogreugly.”
