I made this one time just to try it and loved it instantly. Never even heard of white barbecue sauce until I came across this recipe by accident. After I made my first batch, I gave some to my wife on some shredded chicken. She looked at me and said, "Oh my God! This is the best sauce I've ever had." I now make it regularly for my in laws and for my friends at work. They always bug me for the recipe but I still haven't told them where I got it. Sooner of later they will figure it out but until then, it's my borrowed secret. You should definitely try it. It's AMAZING!
White Barbecue Sauce
At many barbecue joints across the South, white barbecue sauce is the sauce of choice. It's generally a mayonnaise-based sauce, made tangy with the addition of vinegar, horseradish, and mustard. Fans of white sauce say that once you've doused your barbecued chicken in this sauce, you'll never go back to red. If you prefer a thicker sauce, omit the water.
