Howdy Carolina Don,
I was raised on eastern North Carolina pork BBQ in the late 50's, and all we ever ate was a vinegar based sauce that my dad made or we went to Scott's BBQ in Goldsboro. Scott's closed the restaurant years ago, but the sauce is still available. If you have a World Market in your area, you can get the sauce there. It is amazing on pulled pork and chicken. Just thinking about those pulled pork sandwiches with that hot tangy sauce and some fresh cole slaw piled on it makes my mouth water.
The sauce my dad made was pretty simple: A cup of apple cider vinegar, a stick of butter, cayenne and black pepper. He would baste it on chicken on the grill and the more he basted it, the hotter it would be. I can still remember my lips burning and asking my mom for another drumstick.
Thanks for the memories and keep on smokin'
