  • Author: Rick Browne
  • Total Time: 10 minutes
  • Yield: 3 cups bbq sauce 1x


Alabama White Sauce is a Southern Classic that is a tangy, mayo based marinade, baste and dip for chicken and pork that moisturizes and tenderizes meat while also adding great flavor.


  • 2 cups mayo
  • 1 cup distilled white vinegar
  • 1/3 cup apple juice
  • 2 tsp prepared horseradish
  • 1 tbsp fresh ground pepper
  • Juice AND zest of one lemon
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • ½ tsp cayenne
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • Dash (or more) hot sauce
  • Dash smoked paprika


Combine all ingredients and store in a mason jar. Can be used for marinating, basting, and served tableside for dipping. Will last in refrigerator for up to two weeks.


Pairing note: Chicken plus white BBQ sauce plus smoked Brussels sprout slaw is a winning combination. Sauce can also be used as a base for a “White chicken Pizza.”
