Dug this outta my sauce archive for one of us who likes these kind of sauces. I worked on making this sauce just right... took me a couple weeks. You can make it with or without the whiskey (I prefer it with it), and add some ghost pepper powder or habanero sauce/powder if you like it hotter.

If you haven't tried a North Carolina style sauce, whip a batch of this up. NC sauces are known for their vinegary bite. Another plus is the vinegar allows you to safely keep the sauce for several months.

Bill's Classic North Carolina Style BBQ Sauce

4 cups cider vinegar
1 cup whiskey (Old Grandad works well in this recipe)
1 cup brown sugar
1 1/3 cup ketchup (Heinz is best)
1/4 cup butter
2 Tblsp Tabasco
2 Tblsp lemon juice
2 Tblsp Worcestershire sauce
2 tsp crushed red pepper flakes
2 tsp mustard powder
1 tsp onion powder
1 tsp salt
1 tsp black pepper
1 tsp corn starch

Bring it slowly to a boil, stirring occasionally. Cook longer if thicker sauce is what you prefer. Allow to cool and refrigerate. Will keep for months, if you have any left, that is.

Serving size: 1 large bottle

Great on ribs or pulled pork: use 12oz of peach or apple wood in your charcoal to smoke the meat...makes one heavenly hockey meal!
