While Alabama white sauce is a classic barbecue sauce, it’s also delicious as a dipping sauce for fried food like chicken or fish. It makes a delicious salad dressing too (try it with coleslaw)! It originated at Big Bob Gibson Bar-B-Q, one of America’s oldest pit BBQ establishments, opened in 1925. Bob became famous not just for his barbecue but also for his Alabama white sauce, which is still slathered onto the barbecued chicken served there today. Bob’s original recipe contained some corn syrup for sweetness so feel free to experiment.
Makes a scant ¾ cup
