Ingredients:

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)

Directions:

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

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

Notes:

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

From “The Texas Cookbook”  Arthur and Bobbie Coleman, 1949

Ingredients:

1/2 cup melted butter
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 tsp. red pepper
1/2 tsp. mustard
1/2 pint Wesson oil
12 oz bottle catsup
1/2 bottle Lea and Perrin Sauce
2-3 garlic cloves, minced
1 large onion, grated
1 lemon lemon juice
Tabasco Sauce to taste

Directions:

Brown the onion and garlic lightly in the Wesson oil.  Add all the other ingredients and cook until blended well.

Notes:

This is verbatim from a very old Texas BBQ cookbook.  I tend to add paprika, cayenne, celery seed, and liquid smoke, depending on my mood. Sometimes a little vinegar, too.
