"This is pure eastern North Carolina BBQ Sauce at its best. Primarily used for saucing up that perfect pig at the family and friends pig pickin', this recipe can be used for other bbq favorites. With a twist of honey, this sauce is awesome on bbq chicken and pork chops as well. Enjoy!!"

I reduced the servings in half and then used Catalina salad dressing in place of the ketchup. Sweetened up and took some bite out of the pepper that way. It was really good on chicken.

This is NOT NC eastern style BBQ sauce! Eastern style would NEVER add that much sugar/honey NOR ketchup. At best, this would be the Lexington style BBQ sauce.
