Please Note: This is a vinegar based sauce (3 cups) – if you are not a big fan of vinegar, this recipe is not for you. See tip below.
This awesome sauce won The Best Condiment Contest on Food52. After my very first taste and I could see why. This sauce is tangy, not too sweet, loaded with layers of flavor. It’s my favorite go-to sauce for pork, chicken and ribs. It’s not thick like many bbq sauces and is great for basting. It’s best served warm.
Head here for a great step-by-step video on how to make this sauce by Merrill from Food52.
My favorite – Sweet & Smoky Pulled Pork Sandwiches made in the Crock Pot (pictured above), smothered in Dead Guy Sauce. So. Darn. Good.
