I have not read this thread in awhile and would like to thank everyone for the kind words. I am glad that this sauce is a hit. I enjoy this one as well. I apologize to any of you that asked a question and I didn't respond. I had not received notification of a new post.
@tjs231...This recipe makes 2 1/4 Cups of sauce. I add 1 Cup of this to any pan or foil drippings which give enough for the meat from an average 8-9 Lb Butt. The remaining Cup I put in a squeeze bottle and serve on the side for folks that want an extra punch of Vinegar. So for 40 Lb of pork, make 4-5 times the recipe. This stuff gets better as it sits and there is nothing in there to go bad so it keeps in the refer indefinitely...JJ
Thanks for the reply. I was pretty close last week with what you said, I mixed up a full batch and then used that and what I had leftover from a previous batch, probably a cup or so.
Everyone at the benefit asked what I did to the pork. They said there was something "different" about it but they couldn't put their finger on it. It definitely was not drowned in the finishing sauce, I had some where you could barely notice it.
The only one I revealed the secret to was my mom. She's still raving about it. Actually she told me today that she wanted me to make more for her. Lol...
