An incredible substitute for traditional ketchup barbecue sauces, my Alabama White Sauce is a tangy, mayonnaise based white sauce that delivers big on flavor.
What is Alabama White Sauce?
Need a change from your regular barbecue sauce? Ever hear of White BBQ Sauce?
This stuff is amazing and a fantastic change from typical vinegar/tomato puree or ketchup based barbecue sauces.
This mayonnaise based white sauce requires no cooking, is whipped up in minutes and the flavor!
What is Alabama White Sauce made with?
- creamy horseradish
- apple cider vinegar
- yellow mustard
- salt and black pepper
This is tangy, lip smacking and fun change that can be used on your next batch of smoked or grilled chicken. It’s key to make my Alabama Style Chicken Sandwiches and used it the other night on my BBQ Spatchcock Chicken. So, so good!
I like to reserve some white barbecue sauce to use as a dipping sauce for shredded chicken and in sandwiches, too.
For another homemade barbecue sauce, give my Kansas City Style BBQ Sauce a try on your next rack of ribs. Enjoy!
Watch how to make Alabama White Sauce below!
Alabama White Sauce
- 2 cups mayonnaise
- 1/2 cup cream style horseradish (See Note 1)
- 1⁄4 cup apple cider vinegar
- 3 tbsp sugar
- 2 tsp yellow mustard
- 3 tsp salt
- 2 tsp ground black pepper
- 1/2 tsp cayenne
- In a bowl whisk together all the ingredients. Cover and set aside for 30 minutes before using. Cover and refrigerate if not using immediately.
- Prepared horseradish is made with grated horseradish root, vinegar, and salt. Prepared horseradish is not the same as horseradish sauce but is an ingredient in it. Creamy Horseradish Sauce combines prepared horseradish with cream, sour cream, or mayonnaise, which makes it milder and creamier (The Spruce Eats). If using prepared horseradish, I would start with a 1/4 cup and taste test to suit your tastes for heat level.
