Alabama white sauce grilled chicken


BBQ sauces can fire up people similar to religious or political conversations. For me, I enjoy them all. Vinegar, mustard, sweet red or sweet spicy are all welcomed here. The Alabama white has always raised my brow, especially when I saw it for the first time.

So I tried the recipe below and it was good but I feel it could be improved with few suggested tweaks. I wanted a little more depth of flavor (sweet and spicy) so to the marinade I would add apple juice and pull down the vinegar for the marinade only. I would also pump up the spice level by adding more Tabasco and “Slap Ya Mama” seasoning and lastly I wouldn’t use the mayo in the marinade. So the chicken would be spicy, vinegary, and sweet. Then I would use the sauce to compliment it or cut it.

Since I haven’t tried my suggested tweaks, I am posting only the ingredients and process I used and followed below.

2 Chicken breasts (bone in, skin on)
4 chicken thighs (boned but skin on)
1 cup of Dukes Mayo
1/3 cup of apple cider vinegar
8 dashes of Tabasco
1 tbs garlic powder
1 tbs onion powder
½ tbs of cayenne or Slap Ya Mama
Kosher Salt and Pepper

2hrs – 24 hrs ahead of cooking make your marinade by combining everything in a Ziplock plastic bag or covered bowl. On one side of the grill get it up 350 degrees. Skin down sear it for about 5mins to get a good crust on it. Then move to the indirect heat side of the grill and cook until the chicken is 165 degrees.
