    Let me be clear upfront.  I'm not talking about a finishing sauce.

    I'm looking for a good BBQ sauce for my pork butt.  I love my BBQ sauce but my girlfriend doesn't like it on her pork.  The reason is that it isn't what she is used to.  She is used to a thinner, more vinegary sauce on her pork.  Does anybody have a good recipe they would like to share that they think she may like?  I'm not sure of the flavor she is used to but I do know what it looks like.  It is a very thin red sauce.  If nobody had suggestions I may just mix some of the finishing sauce into my BBQ sauce to see how she likes that.

    Sounds to me that she likes a good carolina pig sauce.

     Down here where i'm from most everyone likes a thick sweet spicy sauce.

    Give me a min. and i'll find a link for what i think your looking for.

    I agree with you but couldn't think of the local it came from.  My sauce is what you describe, thick, sweet, and spicy.  Thanks for your help!

  5. I tried this one from the wiki written by: soflaquer,

    1 Cup Cider Vinegar
    2 Tablespoons Brown Sugar
    1 Teaspoon Tony Chachere's Cajun Seasoning
    1 Teaspoon Course Black Pepper
    1 Teaspoon Red Pepper Flakes

    I followed it exactally and found all the ingredients at wally world... I put about 1/3 cup on a 6lb butt and it was fantastic.. I don't like thick and sweet either.

    Thanks all for the help.  I'll have to smoke one this weekend so she can give it a try.
