Alabama White Barbecue Sauce

This creamy, white barbecue sauce is meant to be eaten on the side.  Traditionally, Alabama white barbecue sauce is served with slow grilled chicken. Each piece was either dipped in the sauce and served, and the sauce was drizzled over top.  I love this tangy, peppery, and sweet sauce. I add this to shredded chicken sandwiches as well. Heck, I can just eat it with a spoon, but you know, I have to save some for my guests.. Give this recipe a try.  You’ll love it.
