Alabama White Sauce Recipe for Hot Dogs

Some say that Big Bob Gibson’s Bar-B-Q in Decatur, Alabama created this regional mayo-based barbecue sauce and introduced it to the world. If so, thank you Big Bob Gibson!  Our recipe is loosely based on Bob Gibson’s original sauce.  It tastes great on hot dogs, as a dipping sauce for fries, or on fried chicken or ribs.  Actually it tastes great on anything!


Servings: Makes about 1 cup

  • 1 cup mayonnaise
  • ¼ cup apple cider vinegar (I also like using more exotic vinegars like sherry vinegar or champagne vinegar which add a unique taste to the sauce)
  • 1 tablespoon hot chili paste (I like sambal oelek but sriracha also works)
  • 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • ¼ teaspoon Aleppo pepper or cayenne pepper (add more or less depending on how hot you like it)
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper


Whisk the mayonnaise, vinegar, hot chili paste, Worcestershire sauce, Aleppo pepper or cayenne in a small bowl, taste, then season with salt and pepper. The sauce is best if it sits for 20 minutes before using to let the flavors blend and mellow.  The sauce can be kept for 5 days if it is covered and chilled in a refrigerator.
