Apple cider is a great addition to a sauce to offset the sweetness a bit.  Here is a great recipe for a cider based sauce that you will enjoy on your pork and other meats.

Apple Cider BBQ Sauce Recipe

2 cups white vinegar
2 cups apple cider vinegar
1 1/2 cup water
1/8 cup hot sauce

2 tsp. salt

Mix everything together in a medium saucepan. Bring to a simmer over low heat and cook 30 minutes, stirring occasionally.  Some folks add in a small amount of Catsup for additional flavor. It will thicken it a bit.  You can also add or reduce the water to get the flavor just right for you.
