Vinegar Barbecue Sauce Recipe
This Secret Sauce recipe was generously donated by Al Carson of Raleigh, North Carolina. Thank you Al!
Al says, “For pig picking dip or chops, ribs, and chicken on the grill. Some folks even put it on burgers and steaks. What can I say? When cooking on the grill, baste meat last 15 minutes. The sauce contains sugar and will burn if applied much earlier. Also makes a dandy pasta salad sauce. Just add two tablespoons of olive oil to half a cup of sauce and mix with your favorite pasta and whatever else you like (cheese, diced onions, peppers, carrots, celery, olives, mushrooms, broccoli, or cauliflower). Some folks even use it as a regular salad dressing and I like it as a slaw dressing, mixed half and half with mayonnaise. The recipe makes a lot – but I never have enough!

While visiting my friends, Bill and Andra Cook of Raleigh, North Carolina (a couple of years ago), Bill’s father, Elbert Cook of New Bern, North Carolina, brought his homemade barbecue pit (which he has fixed on a trailer) to the Cook’s home and carefully tended the pig. When done, we pulled the meat off the ribs with our fingers and ate pig pickin’. It was finger lickin’ good!
Secret Sauce Recipe:
Most families and restaurants that are known for their barbecues make their own Secret Sauce. In fact, they will tell you that the “secret is in the sauce.” You would no more ask a barbecue man for his sauce recipe that you would for the use of his dog. Most people simply call their sauce “Secret Sauce.”
