Ingredients

  • First, a few disclaimers. Categorizing BBQ sauces is a tough job.

  • Except for the distinction between Eastern Carolina vinegar sauces,

  • the distinctions are not always clear cut. I've done a classification

  • based on 1) the comments of the original source and 2) simple induction

  • by looking at the characteristics of sauces from different localities,

  • 3

    ) articles on regional variation in BBQ.

  • Although far from fool-proof, I used the following scheme:

  • 1

    ) North Carolina Eastern: vinegar base, no tomato

  • 2

    ) North Carolina Piedmont: vinegar base, with small amounts of tomato

  • 3

    ) North Carolina Western: strong tomato with some vinegar

  • 4

    ) South Carolina: mustard base, usually with some tomato

  • 5

    ) Charlotte: thin tomato

  • Next, I have not included attributions, since I don't remember where

  • most of the sauces came from. I assumed that this file would be strictly

  • for personal use.

  • In addition, the recipes are rather telegraphic. To save

  • space, I included minimal cooking instructions and often abbreviate

  • ingredient names (tom for tomato, pepper always refers to black pepper,

  • etc.)

  • Lastly, any additions would be appreciated.

Directions

First, a few disclaimers. Categorizing BBQ sauces is a tough job. Except for the distinction between Eastern Carolina vinegar sauces, the distinctions are not always clear cut. I've done a classification based on 1) the comments of the original source and 2) simple induction by looking at the characteristics of sauces from different localities, 3) articles on regional variation in BBQ. Although far from fool-proof, I used the following scheme: 1) North Carolina Eastern: vinegar base, no tomato 2) North Carolina Piedmont: vinegar base, with small amounts of tomato 3) North Carolina Western: strong tomato with some vinegar 4) South Carolina: mustard base, usually with some tomato 5) Charlotte: thin tomato Next, I have not included attributions, since I don't remember where most of the sauces came from. I assumed that this file would be strictly for personal use. The only exception is the first recipe, which is from a friend's father. In addition, the recipes are rather telegraphic. To save space, I included minimal cooking instructions and often abbreviate ingredient names (tom for tomato, pepper always refers to black pepper, etc.) Lastly, any additions would be appreciated. ************************************* * North Carolina: Eastern Vernon's Dad's Sauce (A real family recipe from NC) 1 gallon cider vinegar 6 oz Texas Pete 10 oz worcestershire 1 1/4 oz crushed red pepper mustard thicken (opt) 1.
