Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Place all ingredients in a very large blender or food processor.
  2. (It may be necessary to do this in 2 batches; just add 1/2 of each ingredient and then repeat.) Blend for 1 minute, or until thoroughly combined and mixture is smooth.
  3. Pour sauce into a large bowl.
  4. Use when grilling chicken; brush lightly over the chicken during the last few minutes of grilling.
  5. This sauce is also great for dipping; set some sauce aside for passing at the table.
  6. Pour over those chickens you buy roasted at the grocery for a real easy treat.

We stopped at Gibson's on our way through Alabama and I couldn't wait to try this when I got home. I tried several different recipes but this one tasted the most like what we got there. I love it and put it over the roasted chicken at the grocery. Thanks.

Never been to Alabama and this is my first time trying this sauce. I printed out 3 versions of the sauce and made them all for a beer-butt chicken bbq tonight. Thought this one was too thin and too vinegary. I understand that the vinegar flavored bbq sauce is a regional thing, but for this California girl--way too much.
