so it's a vinegar based sauce.
people claim it to be so good..... i am not such a fan of sour things, so .... is sourness the dominant taste of the sauce?

thank you!

I think the real key to this "sauce" is not using at sauce at all but as a marinade.

I’ve had it at a few spots down south over the years. Bob Gibson’s spot had the best I’ve had. It’s good on smoked chicken or turkey. Vinegary mayo with pepper is what it tastes like to me. It’s not bad but I can’t see using it on anything but poultry.


If you buy some make sure it’s made in Alabama. That way you know it’s made with real Alabamian‘s! It’s the secret that ingredient.

Taste like Creamy Cole Slaw Dressing to me but with a little Heat from the Horseradish and Cayenne. Make your own and add as much Sugar as you like. This is the recipe I use...JJ

White Bubba Q Juice /Alabama Style

3C Mayonnaise, Hellman's (Hey I'm a Jersey Boy!)
1/2C Apple Cider Vinegar
1/4C Honey or 3T White Sugar
1T Horseradish, prepared
1tsp Celery Seed, ground
1tsp Salt
1tsp Black Pepper
1tsp Onion Powder
1/2tsp Garlic Powder
1/2-1tsp Cayenne Pepper
Dash of Worcestershire Sauce

Whisk all ingredients together until well combined. Taste and adjust Sweet, Sour, Salt and Heat to your taste. Refrigerate at least two hours for flavors to meld. Divide, with half to be brushed on the meat during the last half hour of the cook and the remaining half to be used as a Dip at the table.

We tried it once. That was enough. We actually ended up using it to make cole slaw, and didn't like it as much as my own cole slaw dressing recipe.

People dunk finished chicken in it, (I drizzle it on) you don't cook it on like traditional bbq sauce.
Now you tell me ,

All depends on what you like I guess . Makes great chicken , but I do like it as a dipping sauce .

I make it for chicken when I do big batches of drumsticks or quarters. My family loves it. I basically whip my own up with mayo, vinegar, artificial sweetener, garlic and a lot of black pepper.
