Alabama Barbecue Sauce

This humble little Mason jar doesn’t look like much, but inside is the most addicting and delicious sauce ever! The older boys, Jeff and I drizzle this on everything! I started working on this recipe to serve with brisket and pork a few weeks ago when we used our smoker for the first time. Since then I have made it each time we barbecue. In my weaker moments I like to dip ripple potato chips in it!

This sauce has become a staple in our fridge! Aside from tasting great with all type of barbecue it is also amazing on grilled chicken and beef. Happy cooking!
  • 1 cup Mayonnaise
  • 1/2 cup Greek yogurt, plain
  • 1/4 cup White wine vinegar
  • 1 clove Garlic, minced (or 1 tsp minced garlic from a jar)
  • 2 tbsp Spicy brown mustard
  • 2 tsp Horseradish cream (see note)
  • 1 tsp Sugar
  • 1 tsp Kosher salt
  1. Stir or blend in a food processor all ingredients until smooth.
  2. Store in the refridgerator for up to a week.
Do not change the mustard – the spicy brown is so important to the flavor, any other mustard would not work.[br]If you do not have horseradish cream (that’s the kind you put on sandwiches), then you can use regular prepared horseradish but I would start with 1 tsp and taste before adding another tsp – the taste is much stronger.[br]I love to swap Greek yogurt into everything, but if you prefer, add an additional 1/2 cup of mayo instead. Sour cream would also be a great swap.
