“A friend of my mom's from Alabama gave her this recipe. It will keep in the refrigerator for several weeks. Remember to keep any sauce you use for brushing or basting meat separate from the rest, for food safety reasons!”

This "white sauce" was made famous at Big Bob Gibson's BBQ in North Alabama. Several things are left out in this recipe such as horseradish and apple cider vinegar. Let it sit for a few hours to overnight and it really melds the taste.



I am from Decatur, Al where this recipe originated from. The original recipe is to use miracle whip instead of the mayo, and leave out the sugar. Be sure to put in lots of black pepper too.



I have eaten this sauce only in select BBQ restaurants in North Alabama. We don't live there anymore and can't find white BBQ anywhere! This is a wonderful taste of home.
