Ingredients
  • 1 (6 to 8-pound) pork shoulder
  • Salt
  • 1 1/2 cups cider vinegar
  • 10 tablespoons ketchup
  • 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1/2 cup water
Directions
  • Preheat smoker using a mix of hickory and a few oak wood chips. The fire should burn down to the coals, not ash, when cooking the pork shoulder.

  • Season the pork shoulder with a little salt and place the meat on the grill. Cover the smoker and let the pork smoke for 8 to 10 hours.

  • Combine the rest of the ingredients in a saucepan and bring to a boil. Reduce to a simmer, stirring the sauce frequently. If you like your sauces a little spicier, add more black pepper. After about 20 minutes, remove the saucepan from the heat and set aside.

  • Once the pork is finished cooking, remove from the smoker and let rest for 5 to 10 minutes. Then, hand pull, chop, or slice the pork. Serve the meat with some of the Lexington dipping sauce poured over the top.
