EASTERN NORTH CAROLINA VINEGAR BARBEQUE SAUCE
(I.E. THE ONLY BBQ SAUCE THERE IS)
SERVES 10

Vinegar BBQ sauce recipe~ just made a couple jars of this stuff. YUMMY. Tastes just like George's, my favorite NC sauce! If you make the recipe and a half, it perfectly fills up a jar. Only thing I did differently was to warm it in a pan over medium heat to dissolve sugar and salt.

INGREDIENTS
1 cup apple cider vinegar
1 tablespoon salt
1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
1 tablespoon brown sugar

INSTRUCTIONS
Mix all ingredients together in bowl (I use a salad dressing shaker/bottle).  Let sit for a couple of hours before serving on pulled pork or chicken.
