Eastern North Carolina style barbecue sauce

Vinegary and spicy with a tiny bit of sweetness to accentuate the flavors in pork. Normally presented in a bottle on the side of an Eastern NC chopped pork sandwich, giving the eater the opportunity to use as much or as little as they would like.


  • 2 cups apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons black pepper
  • 2 teaspoons brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons crushed red pepper flakes
  • 1 teaspoon worchestershire sauce


Add all of your ingredients into a medium sized pan over medium heat. Stir to combine everything. 

Once everything is well combined, you simply want to cook long enough to melt the sugar. Once the sugar seems fully disolved, you can remove the pan from the heat. 

Store in a container in the fridge. 


You can halve this recipe if you want. Just use half of each ingredient and it should work just fine.
