    I had been coming to Fallbrook to visit for 15 years and finally moved here 13 years ago - where was the VW bus? There are only 4 ways into the town and I have never seen it - Thanks for the link

    If this one sounds like too much, you can cut the recipe in half.

    Pulled Pork Finishing Sauce

    4 T Flour
    4 T Sea Salt
    1 T Coarse Black Pepper
    1 T Cayenne
    4 T Paprika
    1 t sugar
    2 T Cornstarch
    5 C Water
    4 C White Vinegar

    Mix all dry ingredients. Add small amounts of water at a time until paste forms. Add remaining water and vinegar. Bring to boil, reduce heat and simmer for 5 minutes.

    Soflquer has a great pulled pork finishing sauce in the sauce section. It has been made a stickie and rightly so imho. Give it a try. I'm certain it will make your Q taste just like you want it to. It's the best I have tried.

    Here's my Carolina finshing sauce that I got back when I lived in North Carolina and it is the most authentic I've tasted.

    Rivet's North Carolina PPB Finishing Sauce

    3 cups apple cider vinegar
    1 Cup Dark beer (Guiness or Killian’s Red)
    1 TBSP salt
    2 TBSP red pepper flakes
    1 TSP coarse ground black pepper
    [font=&quot]¼ Cup dark brown sugar or honey

    [/font] Mix all sauce ingredients in a deep saucepan and bring to boil. Then reduce to simmer for about 30 minutes…not too hot!

    [font=&quot]Mix sauce and meat in a large bowl, toss and combine well. Serve on warm buns with coleslaw.

    Good smokes to you Bud!
