White Barbecue Sauce
Liquid smoke is one of those products that everyone overlooks when it comes to great, outdoorsy flavor. I think any ill-conceived thoughts come from the fact that it may have too many "not good for you" ingredients and that it is nothing but chemicals. Many over use it as well.*
Start with a 1/4 teaspoon per 1 1/2-2 cups and go from there. If used sparingly, it adds a tremendous amount of smoky flavor. This northern Alabama-inspired barbecue sauce is a super dipping sauce for simple baked chicken or anything you can grill outside as well.
For 4 Serving(s)
- 1 cup mayonnaise or salad dressing
- 1/2 cup apple cider vinegar
- 2 tablespoons Dijon-style mustard
- 1/2 teaspoon ground or cracked black pepper
- 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1/2 teaspoon liquid smoke
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
White Barbecue Sauce Directions
- Simply whisk all ingredients together well, cover and refrigerate at least 3 hours. Serve drizzled over fried chicken sandwiches, pulled pork or chicken, slathered over grilled or baked chicken or as a dipping sauce for ribs.
