About the recipe

Made popular by Big Bob Gibson's BBQ restaurant in Decatur, Alabama, white BBQ sauce has a mayonnaise base that is enhanced by the acidity of apple cider vinegar and lemon juice. It can practically double as a cole slaw dressing. While it may be a bit of an unusual pairing with meats like brisket and pork shoulder, white BBQ sauce works beautifully with chicken and turkey. The key is to use the sauce as a finishing component, rather than a part of the cooking process.

We like to use Duke's Mayonnaise in this recipe.
