White BBQ Sauce


2 cups mayonaise
1 cup cider vinegar
3/4 cup lemon juice
1 tbs. cayenne
1 tbs. white pepper
2 tbs. brown sugar
1 tbs. black pepper
1 tsp. cumin

1 tbs. horseradish (optional)


1. Mix all together, pour over cooked chicken (or use as grill sauce).

2. Marinate chicken in salt, pepper, lemon and oil before cooking.


I found the original of this on the Web ages ago and have tweaked it a bit over the years.   It  turns out to be local to northern Alabama.  The Food Network has a recipe from Big Bob Gibson’s which calls for (yech) corn syrup, but adds horseradish.  However, this version is closer to what I started with:

2 Cups Mayonnaise
1 1/2 Tablespoons salt
2 Tablespoons black pepper
6 Tablespoons white vinegar
6 Tablespoons lemon juice
4 Tablespoons white sugar
