North Carolina has different styles of sauce. The sauce in the Eastern area of the state is vinegar based
South Carolina meat of choice is pork, and the signature sauce is mustard based. Vinegar, sugar and spices are added to yellow mustard, along with other ingredients like lemon juice and butter, depending on the recipe. Honey or syrup is often added to thicken it slightly and add a sweeter edge. In some parts of South Carolina, small amounts of ketchup are added, but most of the sauce recipes are strictly mustard.
Plan to coat the country style pork ribs with BBQ sauce the day before you want to cook them. That way, the ribs will be tender and flavorful.
