Alabama White BBQ Sauce Recipe

My boys use to spend their summers with their grandmother in Alabama. She would treat them to a meal at a restaurant that served white barbecue sauce over chicken and my family thought it was wonderful. I started making it at home and every time I make the sauce, it brings back memories of those summers in Tuscaloosa. The white sauce should be applied only at the very end of your grilling or smoking because it will breakdown and separate if it is heated too long. — Sabrina Everett, Thomasville, Georgia

"I used this for pulled pork BBQ. It was very creamy and a good change from the red and mustard sauces that are common in my part of the country."

"In our area we are used to the traditional red bbq sauce, so thought I would give this kind a try for something different! Next time I probably won't use as much vinegar as called for in the recipe, just different than what we are used to! :)"

"I made this to have with cold, cooked turkey. I halved the recipe, and there is still lots left to enjoy. I did add a touch of horseradish as Bob Gibson's recipe dictated, but otherwise stuck to your recipe. Thanks, Sabrina!"
