White BBQ Sauce is a tomato-free, mayo and vinegar-based BBQ sauce originating from Alabama. Our tangy version packs a punch with McCormick® Black Pepper and Zatarain’s® Creole Mustard. Serve a generous helping of sauce over grilled or smoked chicken. Suited for many uses, we also love it as a dip for fresh veggies and drizzled over salad greens, too.
