Pig Pickin' Sauce
In the South barbecue means pork and nothing sweetens pork like a little vinegar. Sometimes a finishing sauce is used to punch up the flavor of good barbecue. If you want a little something extra without masking the delicious flavor of the pork try something like this. What follows is the basic sauce that is sprinkled over pulled pork to add a little extra sweetin' when it is piled on the buns. 1 cup cider vinegar 1 Tablespoon brown sugar 1 teaspoon salt, or to taste 1/2 teaspoon ground cayenne 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
Combine in a large container and let stand overnight in the fridge. Will keep almost forever.
After the pork has been pulled sprinkle the meat with the sauce (to taste) and toss. Allow the tossed meat to sit for a while before serving so the sauce can work it's magic. The meat will be sweet and juicy. Serve additional sauce at the table.
