Moe’s Original Alabama White Sauce Recipe is simple and delicious. You can make it in under five minutes with a few simple ingredients.

Moe’s Orginal BBQ on Pawleys Island is a franchise location of the Alabama-based restaurant chain. It is famous for not only making great BBQ, but also for a sauce unusual in SC, the Alabama White BBQ Sauce.

A few years ago, Meg Lonon, the former operating owner of the Pawleys location, stopped by WBTW in Myrtle Beach to make Moe’s famous Alabama White Sauce.

The video appears to be no longer available, but the recipe is. We have provided it for you below.

Recently, however, Mark White, owner of a Moe’s Original BBQ location in Mobile, went on WKRG to prepare Moe’s Alabama White Sauce News 5’s John Nodar.

It should be 1 jar of mayo

This was a difficult decision for me to come to. The recipe as originally printed said this: "1 Jar Mayonnaise Heavy Duty" but "jar" is not a volume measure and I couldn't put that, so I did some research. First, I asked Meg and her publicist for clarification but never heard anything back. Then, I just googled "1 Jar Mayonnaise Heavy Duty" and most of the results seemed to indicate 1 gallon (google it and see). So, I went with 1 gallon. Though in hindsight, that does seem out of ratio with the other ingredients. When you say "jar," do you mean quart? Thanks!
