“This is a Southern vinegar barbeque sauce with a splash of ketchup. I transfer some of the sauce to a plastic squeeze bottle for serving, and keep the rest in a glass quart jar in the refrigerator. Be sure to let the sauce come to room temperature before serving (you can warm it in the microwave if you want.)” - by OGREUGLY
Original recipe yields 1 quart

Bring to a simmer over high heat, then reduce heat to medium-low, and simmer 30 minutes longer, stirring occasionally. Remove from the stove and pour into a heatproof bowl. Cover, and refrigerate the sauce for 2 days.
- Strain the sauce through a mesh sieve to remove the red pepper flakes. Store the sauce in the refrigerator. Bring to room temperature before serving.

"I would eliminate brown sugar and ketchup entirely. There's not enough lemon juice to matter, so increase it substantially, or eliminate it as well. Most will say it needs more hot sauce. Instructi..." See moreons for using vinegar sauce are missing. Suggestion: slow cook fresh pork (any way you want), and then pull. Finally, add sauce and toss like a salad."
"I've been using this recipe for years and it's always been easy to prepare and well liked. The best thing about it is that one can "customize" it by using their favorite "heat" (pepper sauce) so that ..." See moreit is as hot or mild as one wishes. One suggestion is to ALWAYS make enough to have extra for dipping or spreading on the finished meat. Once your guests taste it, they'll crave more!"
"This is not bad for EASTERN NC BBQ sauce - but as someone who has lived all my life in western NC, I can tell you that the traditional sauce in this part of the state will never have vinegar in it. I..." See more used "Texas Pete" hot sauce (another western NC product!)instead of Tabasco, and added a lot more than the recipe called for. I also eliminated the lemon juice. My family is used to the western NC sweet, tomato based sauces, I was afraid that vinegar plus lemon juice would be too, too much! This sauce works well for grilling and marinating - I used it on chicken - but since it is thin, you need to baste often to make sure the flavor is even."
