Excellent! Tastes just like the real thing. Instead of mixing up and then letting it sit for 4 hours, I just stirred into pulled pork and cooked in the crockpot for a few hours. Every last bite ...

Delicious - tastes just like the vinegar based sauce at my favorite BBQ place. You really need to be a vinegar fan to like it, though (I am, and this sauce is heaven).

excellant marinade. I bake a whole chicken, pic it, shred it and then marinade in this wonderful concoction! 5 stars.

Coming from a southern girl, this recipe is fabulous. Reminded me of our trips to the Carolinas. Gave this to a friend as a gift with a boston butt....perfect!
