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
¼ Cup dark brown sugar or honey

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

Mix sauce and meat in a large bowl, toss and combine well. Serve on warm buns with coleslaw.

Good smokes to you Bud!
