Alabama: Alabama-Style Chicken Sandwich With White Sauce
Alabama has its own style of BBQ, which also varies by region. By the banks of the Tennessee River, you'll find the origins of a classic Alabama sandwich: pulled chicken with white sauce. The white sauce is unique to Alabama and is a combination of mayonnaise, apple cider vinegar and in some cases, a dash of horseradish to smother the dry-rubbed chicken meat. It was created in Decatur, Alabama, by Robert Gibson at Big Bob Gibson's Bar-B-Q restaurant in 1925. Today, for a mere $4.95, you can enjoy an Alabama-style chicken sandwich with white sauce at Leo and Susie's Famous Green Top Bar-B-Q, which has been in business since 1951 (under Leo and Susie since '73), in Dora.
