If you want to experience the best vinegar based bbq in nc, come to wilson NC, which is 1 hour east of Raliegh on hwy 264. Go try bills bbq and parkers bbq. Parkers is the king in my opinion, but some people prefer bills buffet-style better. you cant go wrong with either one. Sides include eastern NC favorite brunswick stew and those delicous boiled potatoes.

try the Q-Sack in durham--it was so good. i had the sliced brisket and it was not with the vinegar based sauce (which i am not too fond of --yet). i think if you get the shredded then it is the vinegar sauce. anyway the place was packed! and for good reason.

I don't know where you lived in Bama, but in North AL white mayo-based BBQ sauce in quite common. It's used mostly on poultry and tastes better than it sounds.

North Alabama barbecue sauce, if it's used at all, is vinegar based, much like Carolina's. If the meat is properly prepared and smoked slowly, it will have a rich hickory flavor and may not need any sauce. The North Alabama sauce gives it a little kick. White sauce (mayo, vinegar and massive amounts of salt and pepper) was originally meant for barbecued poultry, but is being promoted now as a pork sauce (which is just WRONG, even though my daughter eats it that way). Another recent development is serving a sweet tomato-based sauce with pork. It's often called a "rib sauce." But it's not a true North Alabama thing. Of course, a variation in Middle Alabama is the tomato sauce with heavy mustard AKA Dreamland of Tuscaloosa.

Southlander:
Thanks for that information! Being a transplant of more than 10 years I can only read about what real bar b q is since I was never here to live it. If I ever get back to Alabama (if so it will be to the area between Enterprise and Dothan) I will try to find a place that serves this white sauce. I am not against vinegar based sauce it's just that my first times exposed to real bar b q it was always red so I guess my bias stuck! Don't cringe now but the second best bar b q I have had here was in Raleigh at Red, Hot & Blue. The best was at Becky's Log Cabin in Smithfield, NC where we had it right off the hog with no sauce at all. Happy eating...I am getting hungry again.

Default Vinegar base barbque sauce

Hi, I was in Raliegh several weeks ago at an auto auction where they served bar b que for linch. There was some barbque sauce there that I had never heard the name of, I think it was something like "Murphy" but not sure of the spelling. It was a thin sauce with a vinegar taste. I would love to buy some if I can get the right name and a location that sells it, can anyone help?

Any and all help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks and have a Blessed day,
Wade

The name isnt ringing a bell and there is oodles of sauces made in North Carolina.

You might want to try the state general store and see if you can find it or something similar click here Sauces Some sauces are restaurant only while some are for the general public to purchase. You might want to call the restaurant you tasted it at and see if you do have the name correct. Good luck in your quest.
