         You won't be disappointed. I have used this finishing sauce since SoFlQuer first posted it and I have always been happy with the results. I really hope you will be too .... it's the best!

    Thanks for the recipe, Jeff.  I tried it on a picnic I pulled and will definitely be using this sauce from now on.  I think it really shines through on the leftovers.  Add just the right touch of flavor to really set it off!!

    I enjoy mixing this with my BBQ sauce (50/50) and injecting it into the butts.

    What do you do with the left over finishing sauce?  Can it be kept in the refrigerator   for a while?

  8. I have two butts smoking right now and I have tried this out and it is AWESOME!!!!!! I am actually on here now so I can get the recipe again!

    I just refrigerate it but it doesn't last long in my house.
  10. I don't see why it wouldn't hold in the fridge for sometime. It's mainly vinegar so it should keep well.

    I have had this bookmarked for a while, made it a while back as per the original recipe, and it was pretty good.  I am not a huge cider vinegar fan, so I subbed with white vinegar, and it was AWESOME!  Everyone that tried it could not get enough of it, next time I will triple the recipe to make sure there is enough and to have some leftover.  

    Thanks for a fantastic recipe.

    My wife loves the vinegar sauces like the eastern Carolina styles.  Unfortunately I cannot handle that much vinegar.  Being from Oklahoma I have been spoiled on thick hearty red sauces.  I am going to make it for her today because I am about to smoke a huge butt.  Thanks for the tip and I will try it.
  14. You can't go wrong with a vinegar finishing sauce. I've tried this one and another that I really like and it is awesome.

    A huge thanks!!!!! I put a butt on this mornin' and whipped up your sauce just before I pulled it.  Everyone loved it! Woohoo! I'm not a big fan of vinegar stuff but I loved it as well! 

    Definitely recommend it!
  16. The finishing sauce is very similar to the eastern NC vinegar based BBQ sauces.  I whipped up the "Vaunted Vinegar Sauce" from the the Smoke and Spice cookbook which is similar (twice the  vinegar, salt instead of cajun seasoning) and it says it will keep "indefinitely" presumably because it is just vinegar and spices. 

    From all the posts, it sounds like the one I maded (which has 2 cups of vinegar) could have a tad too much vinegar for a finishing sauce. 

    I'm smoking a couple of butts today for the 4th of July.  My plan was to pull it, mix it with its own juices (fat removed) then serve it with a choice of vinegar based sauce or more traditional sweet-ketchup based sauce. But now I may try the finishing sauce.

    I have used a similar version of this sauce for years. In my humble opinion, this is as good as it gets. I keep a bottle sitting on the table, it goes well with other things too (ribs, pinto beans, sliced tomatoes fresh from the garden, and so on.)
