Carolina-Style BBQ Sauce

Watch Chef John prepare a quick and easy barbeque sauce based on the tangy, peppery, vinegar-and-mustard BBQ sauces that are popular in South Carolina. In this video, you’ll see Chef John sauté apple chunks in brown sugar, before adding apple cider to develop that tangy base. Then the mixture gets a ton of black pepper, red pepper flakes, and some yellow mustard. This barbeque sauce is super simple to make. So easy, and so delicious with its sharp, peppery bite! Use this for all your BBQ sauce needs and also as a basting sauce for chicken and pork chops. Get the recipe for Carolina-Style BBQ Sauce.

Looks tasty, but could I substitute regular vinegar for the apple cider vinegar?
