    Default Whitt's Vinegar Based BBQ Sauce

    I think this site is awesome but would like to request this if possible.
    I do not want the Richard whatever sauce w ketchup and everything else in it. This is a thin sauce (watery) with a nice taste to it.

    The closest I have found (have not tried yet) is this:
    4 cups white vinegar
    1 cup water
    1 cup sugar
    4 teaspoons chili powder
    1 teaspoon white pepper
    1 teaspoon black pepper
    1 teaspoon red peppers (optional)
    1 teaspoon cayenne pepper (optional)

    Does anyone have a vinegar sauce similar to this?

    Thanks in advance!

    Thanks for the responses.
    After some hard tests myself, I found the basic jist of the recipe (based off recipe above):

    4:1 White Vin. to Water mix
    1:1/2 Water to Sugar Mix
    3:1 Pepper to Chili Powder mix
    1:1 White Pepper to Chili Powder Mix
    BUTTER is the key.
    You have to let this all boil in a pot for 20 mins or so and let it cool down and START to separate.
    When it does the top, more orange layer is the "hot" sauce while the middle, more brown layer is the more mild sauce.
    The bottom of the pan is nearly unusable due to the amount of pepper in the bottom.

    Some people think the hot sauce is just too hot but I love the spice and flavor it leaves in your mouth.
    I don't think this is an exact recipe by any means but extremely close taste wise.

    Thanks for sharing the recipes! my family gets this type of vinegar with our pulled pork in KY and also in TENN, I have always just made my own by bringing white vinegar to a boil and then adding rec chili peppers, let it cool and put in jars, I keep it in the fridge and always have plenty to share, we love nothing better than a pulled pork sandwich with a little of this and some Franks hot sauce, pulled pork and then top with cole slaw (I use Chefts CC recipe for KFC) all on a bun ....total yummm!!!
