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



Texas Barbecue Sauce

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


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


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


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.
