H.G. Woodchuck Carolina meets Vermont BBQ Sauce
Makes approximately one pint
This is a Carolina-style vinegar-based bbq sauce that is great on chicken, pork, ribs, fish… Pretty much everything except your breakfast cereal. Marinate meat and chicken for as long as you wish—up to 12 hours, and fish for 1 to 3 hours.
Combine all ingredients. Pour into an airtight jar and shake.
Keep in fridge, and shake before using.

1/4 cup water
