      I've made vinegar-pepper sauce and mustard sauce. But I'm unclear about light tomato & heavy tomato. Do you know of representative recipes online? Is 'heavy tomato' the same as 'KC Style'?

              Welcome to the Pit from Dallas, Texas! Our daughter has lived in Columbia for the last 20 years, so I have had a fare share of South Carolina BBQ. I have had some good BBQ, but am yet to warm up to the hash.
