Carolina style sauce/mop

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
Here's a vinegar based sauce/mop I've been using with my pulled pork. I normally double this recipe, reserving about half of it for the finishing sauce. During the smoke, I mop the meat about every hour. Then, after the meat is pulled, I add some to the final product. Serve with sauce on the side.

1 tbs fresh ground black pepper
2 tbs dark molasses
1 cup water
2 tbs kosher salt
1 tsp cayenne pepper
1/2 cup straight bourbon whiskey
1 1/2 cups cider vinegar
2-4 chipotle or japaleno peppers
1 tbs crushed red pepper flakes

Add all ingredients in a sauce pan and heat until molasses and salt are dissolved. All ingredients are of course, adjustable.

Enjoy! biggrin.gif

No problem!

This sauce is good as is, but playing with the amounts is always an option... PDT_Armataz_01_34.gif

Hey Hawg,
That sounds really good and I'm definitely going to give it a try. Also, you might want to look at Florida Jeff's finishing sauce. I think it has been make into a sticky. It's great stuff and I use it as you recommend for your sauce. You might give it a try. Thanks for sharing your recipe.

Thanks for posting that Hawg, I'll have to try that on my next butt. Just by looking at the ingredients it looks like it might have a little bite. I'm a little wimpy when it comes to spicy kind of hot, would it be wise to back of on some of the hotter ingredients for me?

Thanks again!

Yes indeed, I adjust according to my audience.

If I'm feeding kids and some folks who don't like heat, I'll make a batch with hardly any or no heat, along with a batch with heat, and mop with apple juice. Then when served, the audience has a choice of sauces.
