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".
