Preparation

For the South Carolina Barbecue Sauce:

Stir together all ingredients except the soy sauce, butter and liquid smoke in a heavy-bottomed saucepan.

Simmer for 30 minutes, stirring frequently to prevent scorching. Add the soy sauce, butter and liquid smoke and stir well. Return to a simmer over low heat and cook for another 10 minutes, stirring often.

Cool to room temperature before transferring to a jar or squeeze bottle. Store, tightly lidded, in the refrigerator.

For the Kansas City barbecue sauce:

Combine all ingredients in a heavy-bottomed saucepan and bring to a simmer, stirring occasionally, over medium heat.

Simmer for 10 minutes, stirring frequently to prevent scorching.

Cool to room temperature before transferring to a jar or squeeze bottle. Store, tightly covered, in the refrigerator.

For the Barbecue- Style Pulled Pork Sliders:

Toss shredded pork and barbecue sauce together in a microwave save bowl. Cover and reheat on High for one minute. Alternately, you can toss the pork and barbecue sauce together in a small, heavy-bottomed saucepan and reheat, covered, over a low flame until warmed through.

Split the rolls in the center with a serrated knife. Sandwich about 1/4 cup of the saucy meat in between the top and bottom halves of each roll. Serve immediately with sauce on the side.

I made the Kansas City sauce and yummy!! It was absolutely wonderful! Only thing I wish you would add here is instructions for making the pulled pork. What kind of marinade would be good to cook the pork in?? The sauce was amazing! Thanks for such a delicious and simple recipe.

Made the South Carolina Sauce but only added the chili powder (so my children wouldn’t complain about the spice level). Excellent! Just the right combination of sweet and sour.
