Lexington Style BBQ sauce.

This sauce is used to make North Carolina Style Pulled Pork and North Carolina Coleslaw . You will need to double this recipe to sauce both the meat and the slaw.

2 cups cider vinegar
1 tablespoon sea salt
1 tablespoon ground white pepper
1 tablespoon red pepper flakes
2 tablespoons white sugar
1/4 cup dark brown sugar
1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1/2 cup Ketchup
Mix all ingredients together and let sit 10 minutes.

Add to chopped barbecue when hot to season the meat and keep it from drying out.

This sauce keeps indefinitely in the refrigerator, but be forewarned that the longer it sits, the hotter it gets as the heat from the peppers leeches out into the sauce.
If you have sauce that has sat for a long time and you don't like it too peppery, cut the sauce with another 2 cups of vinegar, 1/2 cup ketchup, and 1/4 cup dark brown sugar. Taste and adjust the salt if necessary.
