You can use it to dip, drizzle, or slather any piece of meat with and even fries and veggies. The sauce puts any meat over the top.
Chicken, pork, turkey, fish, and even hamburgers go well with it. Basically you can put it on anything that comes off of the smoker or grill.

SERVE: Serve with chicken, turkey, or seafood. I think it’s especially good with smoked and barbecued meats. You can leave the sauce out for about two hours before it needs to be covered and refrigerated.
STORE: Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for two weeks.
FREEZE: This recipe does not freeze well, so I do not recommend freezing it.
Alabama White Sauce is made with a few simple ingredients that you most likely already have on hand. The base is made of mayonnaise with apple cider vinegar, lemon juice, Dijon mustard, Worcestershire sauce, horseradish sauce, salt, pepper, and cayenne pepper.
While often served with meats pulled off the grill, this sauce is not a typical BBQ sauce. It is not made with red tomatoes as other BBQ sauces are. Instead, the mayo and combination of apple cider vinegar and a few spices give the sauce a tangy taste with a slight kick. It is a finger-licking-good sauce that everyone needs to try immediately.
