For over 100 years Alabama White Sauce has remained a staple of backyard barbeques in Alabama. It was created by Robert Gibson of the legendary Big Bob Gibson’s Bar-B-Q in Decatur, AL. But you don’t need to live in Alabama to take advantage of this delicious sauce. There are many variations of this sauce but nearly all start with a base of mayonnaise and apple cider vinegar. The sauce is creamy and tangy instead of many other sauces that start with a tomato base.
What do you eat with Alabama White Sauce?
The sauce is pretty versatile and in this recipe, we are using it on grilled chicken wings. You can however use it on any kind of grilled or smoked chicken. Got some leftover pulled pork? Why not smother it with sauce and stick it in a sandwich? You can also put a thin layer over grilled vegetables, dip corn on the cob in it or even use it as a base for making coleslaw. It is such a versatile and easy-to-use sauce.
Alabama White Sauce Recipe
- 4 Cups Mayonnaise
- 1/2 Apple Cider Vinegar
- 2 Tbsp Horseradish
- 1 Tbsp Brown Sugar
- 1 Tbsp Lemon Juice
- 2 Tbsp Your Favorite Rub – I recommend Meat Church Holy Cow Link Here
Mix all of the ingredients together and pour the sauce into a sealable jar. If you think the sauce is a little too runny for your liking you can add extra mayonnaise to thicken it up slightly. As long as the container is airtight it should be good for about two weeks in the refrigerator.
Grilled Chicken Wings
You are most likely here for the Alabama White Sauce recipe and probably have favorite wing recipes in mind that you want to use. Previously we have created Smoked Chicken Wings – The Ultimate Guide! and Brined Double Smoked Chicken Wings! Fantastic Recipe! Both of these would turn out fantastic when covered in sauce.
When we made these we kept it really simple and used this guide.
Get your wings out of the fridge and pat them dry with some kitchen towels. It is essential that the wings are as dry as you can get them to try and avoid any rubberiness. With the wings, dry season them with your favorite chicken seasoning. I like to use Holy Gospel Seasoning by Meat Church. Get your wings on the grill. You want to cook them at around 300 degrees and give them a turn halfway through. Once the wings hit an internal temperature of between 180 and 190 degrees get them off the grill and leave them to cool a little.
Serve with tons of Alabama White Sauce and you have some terrific chicken sides that took almost no effort at all.
