White Barbeque Sauce

White Barbeque Sauce is a staple around here.  In other places, you have barbeque sauces of all kinds - honey barbeque, Kansas City style, Memphis Style.  Even South Carolina is known for their mustard based barbeque sauce.  Here in Alabama, it's all about the white sauce.  It is mostly used for barbeque chicken, but we've been known to use it like ketchup for french fries & hushpuppies.  Here at home, I like it with oven roasted potatoes. 

I've been using this recipe for White Sauce for a long time - since before I left home.  And we won't talk about how long ago that was.  My Mom has a cookbook - from my Grandmother's church if I'm not mistaken - that had the recipe in it.  I have adapted some because I like a thicker sauce than the original recipe makes. 

White Barbeque Sauce

6 heaping Tbsp mayonnaise
3 Tbsp vinegar
2 Tbsp sugar 
1 tsp salt
1 tsp pepper
1 Tbsp lemon juice

Whisk together all ingredients until smooth.  Additional mayo and/or salt & pepper can be added to obtain desired thickness and flavor.

*Note:  when making a bigger batch, I don't usually use the full amount of vinegar or pepper.

I've been known to quadruple this recipe when Pete's got the smoker fully loaded with chicken, so it's adjustable. {And good!}
