BBQ Recipes: Big Bob Gibson's White Barbecue Sauce
Here it is, Big Bob Gibson's recipe for his infamous White Barbeque Sauce. This recipe has been published for years on the internet, but I trust that this one is the real thing. This is the version as published by Mike Mills in the fantastic book, Peace, Love and Barbeque. Enjoy.
Big Bob Gibson's Hickory-Smoked Chicken
- 1 cup mayonnaise
- 1 cup apple cider vinegar
- 1 tablespoon lemon juice
- 1 1/2 tablespoons cracked black pepper
- 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt, finely ground
- 1/4 teaspoon cayenne
- 1 whole chicken, cut in half
- Finely ground kosher salt and ground black pepper
- 1/2 cup vegetable oil
To prepare the chicken: Wash the chicken and season it liberally with salt and pepper. Smoke over hot coals and hickory wood at 300 to 350 degrees for 3 to 4 hours or until the internal temperature reaches 170 degrees. Halfway through the smoking process, baste the chicken with oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper once more.
After you take the chicken off the pit, immediately place it in the bowl of white sauce, turning the chicken to coat evenly. Place the chicken on a cake rack and allow it to rest for a few minutes prior to serving. Discard any sauce that you've used for coating chicken.
Serves 2 to 4
