Alabama's White Barbecue Sauce

A great change from the old tomato based favorites, white barbecue sauce is a highly regional barbecue sauce that is an old favorite of the "deep south" folks.

Here is a basic recipe, with suggestions for some popular variations, that the "Cookin Cousins" borrowed from a couple of unforgettable stays in "Dixie Land".



Alabama White Barbecue Sauce


NOTE: This recipe works for any chicken, turkey, ribs, pork or lamb you wish to grill or barbecue.

Mix thoroughly the following:

  • 1/2 cup apple cider vinegar (white vinegar, if you must)
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 2 tblsp sugar
  • 1 tblsp ground black pepper (fresh peppercorns, recently ground)

This recipe makes a little over a cup, but may be doubled.

Mix the following together, 'till-nice-and-smooth:

  • 2 cups mayonnaise
  • 1/3 cup apple cider vinegar (white vinegar, if you must)
