About this recipe: This easy to make barbecue sauce originates from North Carolina. It's great as a marinade for all meats, but particularly pork. Try it out at your next summer barbecue.
I made this sauce and let it sit for 24 hrs. Then I submerged a pork tenderloin in it for another 24 hrs in the refrigerator.I baked the pork with a small amount of sauce poured over it for 3 hrs at 325 degrees, covered, basting once an hr. Then I shredded the meat with 2 forks and poured the rest of the sauce over it, turned off the oven and when it was time to eat (about 1 1/2 hrs later)popped it on buns and ate heartily. Loved it! Nice & spicy! - 28 Jul 2003 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Thanks for the "real" Carolina BBQ sauce recipe. A friend makes this all the time, but says the recipe is an old family secret. - 31 Mar 2001 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Wow! This was perfect! About 3 years ago, I had been to a family reunion in NC where there was a pig roast, and they served the pork with a delicious spicy vinegar dressing that I'd never tried before. Since then, I've had a craving for this sauce. I scaled the sauce by half and made last night. Today, I put a half picnic in my slow cooker all day while I was at work. I added about 1/4 cup of the sauce over the pork while cooking. After draining and shredding the pork, I mixed about 3/4 of the remainder of the sauce with the shredded pork. I served with some homemade cole slaw, homemade corn bread and baked beans and it was just great! Thanks so much. My search for a great Carolina BBQ recipe is over. Thanks so much!! - 24 Oct 2006 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
