Expert Tips

White barbecue sauce is popular in northern Alabama. It starts with a base of mayonnaise instead of tomato or vinegar.

Chipotle chili pepper powder has a distinct “bite” and smoky flavor. Use more or less to your taste. You can also substitute regular chili powder, but it won't have the slight smoky flavor.
