    Use this fiery BBQ sauce to baste pork ribs or chicken whilst barbecuing. With lots of vinegar and chilli, it is a great combination of sour and spicy for those that like full flavoured BBQ sauces.

    I just had to post a positive rating for this sauce because the previous reviewer cooked it, and I think they were expecting this to be a traditional red sauce. You don't cook this one. It's called a sauce, but it's more like juice. Being raised in eastern NC, this "sauce" is used on pig smoked outdoors. It's great on a lot of things, but you'll have to understand what this is to appreciate it. It's more like a spicy seasoned vinegar - traditionally used at pig pickins (google it if you aren't sure what a pig pickin is)  -  16 Oct 2007  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This recipe was waaay too vinegary. Try cutting it in about half. I cooked it for a long time and it was still too strong.  -  02 Jul 2002  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    The best for pulled pork. We smoked a Boston butt, and I served Chick and Ox's sauce. Very good on pulled pork sandwiches piled high with slaw and pickles.  -  25 Mar 2009  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
