Vinegar Barbecue Sauce Recipe – Try it when you grill chicken pieces.
Make grilling a daily event during pleasant temperatures. Sometimes it is just too hot and humid to enjoy a meal outside but it does not prevent us from using the grill to prepare an entire meal – then eat in air conditioned comfort.
Truth be told, we fire up the grill even when it snows.

Our Vinegar Barbecue Sauce Recipe
This recipe comes from the kitchen of a very special lady…my mother-in-law Margaret.
Newly arrived in the U.S., it was one of the first BBQ sauces I tasted on what was a favorite family meal: chicken (straight from the farmer’s market) slow grilled over charcoal.
Must admit I found it odd to be basting chicken with oil over hot coals but the resulting semi sweet glaze is quite special.
Closing in on fifty years later, I still make her original recipe, still use it and still love it as much as when she prepared it herself.
The sauce starts like a typical eastern Northern Carolina concoction but you’ll notice that there is no ketchup involved, no cayenne or red pepper flakes or anything as foreign as Worcestershire sauce.
