and you got your work cut out for ya movin to NC and proclaiming good pork BBQ, NC is to pulled pork what TX is to briskets.
A pretty big part of the secret to 'slap yo mamma good BBQ' is a good sauce. IMO, the sauce has to be good enough to drink. I really really like the taste of KC Masterpiece Original, but the big problem with commercial sauces is they are all far too thick and have too much sugar in them which causes them to want to burn and carmelize too quickly. A little 'no sugar added' apple juice is the perfect way to make KC into the perfect sauce. Cut it at least 50/50 and bring it to a boil. It is good enough to drink..
