Step 6: Make a vinegar-based sauce Make the finishing sauce by mixing 2 cups of apple cider vinegar, brown sugar, 1 teaspoon of salt, 1 tablespoon of black pepper, red-pepper flakes, and hot sauce. Use the sauce as a dip alongside the meat. Step 7: Serve it Once the meat's done, let it rest for an hour, then serve Carolina barbecue with a side of coleslaw and enjoy! Did You Know?
