Alabama Style Barbecue

Barbecue in Alabama is mainly a pork and chicken affair. Meat is usually slow roasted over the Bama wood of choice, which is usually hickory. The sauce is usually either the traditional tomato based or vinegar based varieties but in northern Alabama you will find a mayonnaise based sauce known affectionately as "Alabama White Sauce". Alabama White Sauce is a mayo and vinegar based sauce with a tangy flavor and should only be applied near the end of cooking due to its tendecency to break down when exposed to heat. This sauce is predominately used on chicken and pork and is not recommended for beef. Barbecue in Alabama is served with fresh vegetables or the usual fare of french fries, baked beans and coleslaw.

•1 cup mayonnaise
•1 cup cider vinegar
•1 tablespoon lemon juice
•1 1/2 tablespoons black pepper
•1/2 teaspoon salt
•1/4 teaspoon cayenne

Mix ingredients together and refrigerate for at least 8 hours before using. Brush lightly over chicken, turkey or pork during the last few minutes of grilling. This barbecue sauce is also great as a dipping sauce so set some aside before you start grilling to serve on the table.
