South Carolina is home to four native barbecue sauces: a heavy tomato, a light tomato, a vinegar-pepper, and a mustard-based sauce. Recently, however, an interloper has crossed the border and we find ourselves with a fifth sauce: the Alabama White sauce.
Alabama White is, obviously, a mayonnaise-based sauce that reminds many of a simple coleslaw dressing; however, there is no question that Home Team’s Alabama White is popular, especially with their Smoked Chicken Wings. (See wing recipe here.)
Home Team chef and co-founder Aaron Siegel, who we featured in this interview, provided his recipe for his Smoked Chicken Wings and Alabama White Sauce to starchefs.com.
If you’re making the wings, you have to make the sauce, and it won’t take long. Here are the details:
