This was my favorite barbecue sauce growing up. It's vinegar-based with no ketchup. It's very tangy, very thin, and wonderful on pork, chicken, and even tofu!

I really liked this recipe. The only thing I did differently, was I halved the amount of cayenne and black pepper it called for and added 2/3 cup of brown sugar (made the recipe based on 10 servings). I slow cooked a 5lb. pork butt roast, added the sauce it was delicious. Next time I make this sauce I'll use 3/4 of the cayenne and pepper it calls for. I like it hot!!!

This sauce was not nearly as potent on the meat as it was when I tested it by itself before I served it. My kids gobbled it up, they loved it, although I did reduce the cayenne pepper a bit. My favorite part was the way it made the pork chops taste less "porky". =)

A very good and easy recipe. Delicious, with one point off for the heat. I could only drizzle a tiny bit on my pork or my lips would burn. I love spicy foods and make a homemade ramen soup that'll give you palpitations, but this was INTENSE! I'll absolutely make it again, but I'll cut way down on the cayenne next time.
