Alabama White Barbecue Sauce is a must for grilling season. The tangy goodness of mayonnaise combined with apple cider vinegar and spices enhances everything that it is put on.
The recipe that I use for Alabama White Barbecue Sauce comes from Great American Grilling: The Ultimate Backyard Barbecue & Tailgating Cookbook. I typically have all of the ingredients already in my pantry and it comes together in no time. The hardest part about making it is waiting a few hours for the flavors to meld before using it.
My family and I like to use it on top of grilled chicken, though one family member loves it so much that she has been known to put it on hard-boiled eggs. It’s that good.
