What Sets Ivory BBQ Sauce Apart?
When we think of BBQ sauce, we often envision the familiar tomato or ketchup-based varieties. They can be sweet, tangy, spicy, or a combination of flavors. But have you ever considered a sauce that uses mayonnaise as its base? Yes, that’s right! Get ready to experience the creamy goodness of Ivory BBQ Sauce, also known as Alabama White BBQ Sauce.
The Origin of Alabama White Sauce
Big Bob Gibson’s Bar-B-Q in Decatur, Alabama is responsible for creating this iconic sauce. At their BBQ joint, they would dunk smoked chicken into vats of their special sauce before serving. The result? A tangy and rich flavor that you won’t find in any other BBQ sauce.
