Carolina-Style Vinegar BBQ Chicken Recipe
I live in Georgia, but I appreciate the tangy, sweet and slightly spicy taste of Carolina Vinegar Chicken. I make my version in the slow cooker and when you walk in the door after being gone all day, the aroma will knock you off your feet! —Ramona Parris, Acworth, Georgia
- 2 cups water
- 1 cup white vinegar

- 3/4 teaspoon salt

"This is the real deal. The only thing I will do different is use chicken quarters with bone and skin just to give it that rustic layer of flavor in it."
