This Carolina-style barbeque sauce features fresh apple, but otherwise it's a fairly straightforward, totally in-your-face-with-tang-and-heat recipe. It is fantastic on pulled pork and molasses-brined pork chops.

Good, but needed a bit more liquid and a bit more sweetness to counter the tart. Really nice on the pork, though.

Excellent! It turned out a little too "hot" for me, so I added a little apple sauce at the last minute, but it has fabulous flavor! Used it on Chef John's grilled pork chops - so moist & delicious! You've GOT to try this! Easy & well worth the time. (oh - I 1/2'd the salt in the brine of the chops, but could still taste it...)

i was a little worried when i was making this as it smelled really vinegary (and i love vinegar) but it came out great on the molasses brined pork chops! however, non-vinegar lovers beware - this might not be the sauce for you.
