I always put extra, and different, sauce on Eastern NC Q to jazz up the vinegar. Most eastern NC BBQ joints have a selection of sauces on the table so you can choose the amount of "heat" you want to add.

On the other hand, I usually add some of the house sauce at "Lexington # 1" and will sometimes isolate a little of the Q and add some Tabasco (or the NC brand, "Texas Pete") for a different taste. We usually buy a few bottles of the sauce from # 1 to have on hand to give a little of the Lexington taste to crock pot pork loin.

    Hillbilly: While you are in the Tampa Bay area be sure to get to The Butler's BBQ in a little strip mall off 9th St across the service road from the big Kmart. They serve very good vingary peppery Eastern NC BBC. A sandwich comes already sauced, and a red sauce is served on the side. I never add any sauce at all to their BBQ. I find it perfectly sauced just as they serve it. I guess that will serve it unsauced, don't know, I never asked.

    Cheers, John

      Hmm, I baste with the sauce the last 30 minutes of cooking my meat (just to give it a good coating...not a whole lot of sauce) and then I serve a cup of on the side too.

        We would love to have you too. I used to haunt the Lake Thonotosassa swamps,just outside Tampa, that's where I learned to cook gator, armadillo and swamp cabbage. You all need to come here and raft this wonderful whitewater on the Nolichucky River. You can hike a piece of the Appalachian Trail, eat some Q, trout fish, see waterfalls, add infinitum. Come on up here Peachpie.

          For ribs I’ve been rubbing them with yellow mustard and spices. Smoke at 225 for 4-5 hours, mop them with some sauce, foil them, put em back in for about ½ hour. I was never a big rib fan, but I can’t get enough of the suckers now.

          I still like my beef and pulled pork dry. Sauce on the side.
