How to Make Alabama White BBQ Sauce and Chicken Wings


  1. Alabama White BBQ Sauce:
    In a medium bowl, combine all the ingredients for the barbecue sauce. Cover until ready to use or keep cold in refrigerator or ice filled cooler for up to 3 days.
  2. BBQ Rub:
    In a small bowl combine the dry ingredients.
  3. Chicken:
    Rub the chicken wings with the olive oil then liberally with the spice mixture. Transfer to a resealable freezer bag and keep cold in refrigerator or ice filled cooler until ready to use for up to four hours.
    Grill the wings over medium-high heat until the meat is no longer pink near the bone, about 18 minutes.
    You'll have to turn the wings a few times toward the end of the cooking to keep them from charring.
    Serve the wings with a generous helping of Alabama White BBQ Sauce.
