This incredibly slowly to brand Alabama white barbecue sauce was invented inwards 1925 yesteryear Robert “Big Bob” Gibson at Big Bob Gibson’s Bar-B-Q restaurant, inwards Decatur. When I outset read this chip of culinary history, I had to smile, since I genuinely know the guy. Well, form of.
I’ve been to 2 bbq “boot camps,” operate yesteryear champion pitmaster Chris Lilly, who trained nether a guy, who trained nether Big Bob Gibson. Hey, that’s alone 3 degrees of separation. Ironically, Chris never made, or used the white sauce on anything nosotros cooked, but still, I know a guy, who knew a guy, who knew THE guy.
Some people discovery this concoction quite strange, but non me. It’s eerily like to the Cornell chicken marinade, which I love. In fact, Mr. Robert C. Baker, the creator of the aforementioned recipe, may convey borrowed the reckon from Big Bob. I would investigate further, but I convey existent crimes to solve.
Don’t permit this mixture’s appearance halt y’all from trying what is a devastatingly delicious marinade, baste, in addition to sauce. One tip for basting on the grill: brand certain y’all produce it towards the halt of cooking, in addition to non over too-high heat. You don’t desire flame-ups, equally that volition crusade an off taste.
I brush on 2 or 3 applications to each side, over to a greater extent than indirect heat, in addition to equally y’all encounter inwards the video, it sears on nicely. As a tabular array sauce, it’s corking on whatever of the traditional barbecued meats, but since it’s genuinely merely a salad dressing, it’s also wonderful for making Irish Gaelic patato salad, coleslaw, in addition to grilled vegetables. I promise y’all laissez passer on this white barbecue sauce a endeavor soon. Enjoy!
