When the grill gets fired up everyone thinks about BBQ Sauce.
White BBQ Sauce was a discovery for me. It originated in an homemade Alabama fire pit and the mayo based, horseradish and cayenne laced wonder has been drizzled over char grilled chicken legs ever since. 🙂
So here it is, the famous Alabama White BBQ Sauce.
I was perusing Pinterest the other day and came across this link for a BBQ sauce that was right up my alley.
It’s a mayonnaise based sauce which I love because I make my own mayo (and so can you). Horseradish is one of my favourite things and I am always looking for more ways to enjoy it and this sauce has it!
WHAT IS WHITE BBQ SAUCE
It all started in Alabama with a guy named Big Bob Gibson.
Legend has it he was a six foot three, three hundred pound railroad worker who loved BBQ so much he hand dug his own pit to fire his meats. He then concocted this this cool, tangy sauce to compliment his roasts.
It’s mayo, thinned out with apple cider vinegar then punched up a few notches with horseradish and some pepper.
HOW DO YOU USE WHITE BBQ SAUCE
A better question is how DON’T you use it.
It’s fabulous on grilled chicken. Baste it on a few minutes before the chicken is cooked and then use the rest for dipping.
Marinate your chicken in it!
Excellent in pulled pork or chicken sandwiches.
Use it as a dip for your roasted potatoes or french fries.
