Recipe for Alabama White Sauce

One of my favorite meals is a good old fashioned Southern barbecue. I love the smell of smoking pulled pork in the Big Green Egg or a rack of ribs on the grill. It’s such a nostalgic meal filled with so many family memories. It’s also one of those recipes I think this interestingly tied to certain regions specifically, and BBQ in general has a funny niche that way.

Today, I wanted to share my recipe for one of my favorite part of the BBQ, Alabama White Sauce.

Alabama White Sauce is a must have at a BBQ in my opinion. It goes so great on the plate with barbecue as well. It is really so easy to make, and even tastier if you try it with homemade mayo.
