So if you are planning to make yourselves some pulled pork sandwiches this weekend, you might want to check out our list of the best sauces!

 

1. Memphis Barbecue Sauce

 

Now this barbecue sauce is a favorite! Simply get a pot and heat some vegetable oil in it over medium heat. Add some garlic and onion. Wait for the onion to turn translucent and caramelize which will probably take about 6 to 7 minutes. Add some ketchup, a cup of water, some vinegar, steak sauce, brown sugar, molasses, Worcestershire sauce, celery seed, mustard and a teaspoon of salt. Bring all the ingredients to a boil and let the mixture reduce over medium low heat. Let it simmer until the onion is tender which is approximately 15 minutes. Add the liquid smoke and then strain the sauce.

 

2. Tar-Heel BBQ Sauce

 

To make the Tar-heel bbq sauce, combine some cider vinegar, white vinegar, cayenne pepper, brown sugar, hot pepper sauce, salt and pepper in a mixing bowl. Stir thoroughly and transfer to a bottle with a tight lid. Refrigerate this sauce for about 2 days before using to ensure that the flavors have all blended well.

 

3. Piedmont Barbecue Sauce

 

Well, the Piedmont barbecue sauce is also known to many as the Carolina red sauce. Unlike other sauces, this one’s thin and vinegary. To make this sauce, simply combine ketchup, apple cider vinegar, brown sugar, salt and dried crushed red pepper. Stir the mixture rigorously until the salt and sugar dissolve. Transfer the mixture to a bottle and refrigerate before use.

 

4. Big Daddy’s Carolina Style Barbecue Sauce

 

To make this sauce, combine yellow mustard, light brown sugar, white sugar, water, cider vinegar, black pepper, chili powder and cayenne pepper. Stir the ingredients and simmer for about 30 minutes. Add in the soy sauce, butter and liquid smoke then let the mixture simmer for another 10 minutes. Let the mixture cool down then transfer to a bottle and refrigerate.

 

5. Southern Vinegar Barbecue Sauce

 

This barbecue sauce is pretty easy to prepare! Simply whisk some cider vinegar, white vinegar, sugar, Tabasco sauce, crushed red pepper flakes, salt and black pepper in a bowl. That’s it!
