Seeking good Carolinas-style BBQ on the Westside (vinegar-based sauce, fall-of-the-bone tender)

Cinnamon | Sep 20, 2009 06:26 PM

I want to know who in L.A. serves respectable Carolinas-style BBQ ribs, very tender with vinegary sauces. This can be the East Carolina variety that's largely vinegar and peppers, or the Western Carolina Dip style that adds in a tomato component (also called Lexington Dip or Piedmont Dip) or even South Carolina Mustard Sauce.

I want to avoid Memphis, Kansas City and Texas variety sauces ... no thick, no chipotle ... and no dry ribs!

There's a taxonomy of BBQ and sauce types here under the "United States" heading:

I did have some decent tender ribs with a rather sweet but vinegary sauce at Britt's BBQ, a new place in El Segundo.
