Here is my tale of adventure with vinegar-barbecue-sauce. When I was twenty many moons ago I decided to do a road trip down to florida during spring break from New york.

I stopped in Virginia after driving straight thru and stopped at a truck stop and ordered some hush puppies and grits because I didnt know what they were and I heard they were good .

So I was sitting at the counter when the waitress gave me the grits but i didnt know how to eat them and didnt know what the hush puppies were. Well the waitess came back and asked me what was wrong so I explained to her that I was a grit and hush puppy newcomer. And she helped me out saying " I thought you were a yankee" . I asked her how could you tell-well she said I was staring at the grits and two my license plate was from New York. Moral of the story-eat your grits write away with butter and never drive south with NY plates rent a car with southern plates until you come to your senses and move south to where bbq is ling
Here is a vinegar-barbecue-sauce without sugar that is good for all types of meat but is especially great on pork. It is a tangy recipe that will be pleasant to all especially good for diabetics who want to avoid extra sugar. This sugar-free-barbecue-sauce uses splenda instead. The vinegar based sauces are popular in the South and the Southwest.

I enjoy experimenting with all Southern kind of sauces and when I go especially to Texas I am almost always given a whole bunch of different bbq sauces.

My favorite bbq-sauces are from Texas there are so many varieties but I also love the mustard based sauces from the carolinas.

Preparation of all the below recipes

Mix all the above ingredients in a medium size pan and cook on low

to medium heat for 15 minutes-occasionally

stirring the mixture. Watch that it does not get to

thick or it can burn. store it in the refrigerator and its good for several days but it will probably not last that long as you eat your bbq pork ribs

Mustard-barbecue-sauce is the popular sauce in the carolinas especially in south carolina,what I have read is that German immigrants in the area were the ones that introduced this type of sauce to the region.

Dont ever get in trouble by asking for red sauce when your in a bbq joint in the carolinas and all you see on the tables are yellow sauce . One of my friends did that mistake and was ejected from the bbq joint by the local bbq possee.

Keep the tomatoes out when your down there.
