Vinegar BBQ Mop – a Carolina-style pork sauce

  • Author: Jess Pryles



1 c cider vinegar

1/2 c hot water

2 tbsp brown sugar

1 tbsp vegetable oil

1 tsp black pepper

2 tsp red chili flakes

1 tsp paprika

2 tsp salt

1/2 tsp mustard powder

2 tsp Worcestershire sauce

1 tbsp maple syrup


  1. Place brown sugar and hot water in a non-reactive bowl, and stir well until dissolved.
  2. Add all other ingredients and stir to combine.
  3. Apply liberally to chopped or pulled pork and mix through. Refrigerate for up to one week.


The inclusion of oil (and for that matter, mustard) in this recipe is not typical, but helps coat the meat and keep it moist.
