This vinegar-based barbecue sauce works just as well as a mop as it does a table sauce. This recipe is very similar to the sauce served at the famous Wicker's BBQ from Missouri.


  • 1 1/4 cups apple cider vinegar

  • 1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

  • 2 1/2 teaspoons salt

  • 1 1/2 teaspoons sugar

  • 4 teaspoons chili powder

  • 1 teaspoon dry mustard

  • 1 teaspoon paprika

  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
