Carolina Vinegar-Based Barbecue Sauce

To make 1-1/3 quarts

  • 1/4 cup dark brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/4 cup yellow prepared mustard
  • 2/3 cup ketchup
  • 1 tablespoon freshly ground black pepper (or to taste)
  • 1 tablespoon crushed red pepper flakes (or to taste)
  • 1 pint apple cider vinegar
  • 1-1/3 cups water
  • 2/3 cup white wine
  • 1/4 teaspoon liquid smoke (optional)
  • 1 tablespoon salt (or to taste, see notes)

Place all ingredients in a very large stock pot (saucepan for smaller amount) and bring to a boil. Reduce heat, cover and simmer for about 30 minutes. Cool, then store in refrigerator until use.

Notes: The amount of black and red pepper called for in this recipe results in a fairly spicy-hot sauce. You might want to start with less and add more after tasting. Also, I use much less salt since some of the ingredients are high and I do not like salty foods. needed
