If you grew up in Alabama, this version of barbecue sauce probably seems perfectly normal. To the rest of the country, it might look more like a recipe for salad dressing. At a recent barbecue I attended outside of Huntsville, Alabama it appeared that the guests preferred the white stuff over the traditional barbecue sauce two to one. Don’t be afraid. It kinda grows on you. Baste meat just before serving and have some extra on hand for dipping.
