If you're like me and like firing up the grill, you should definitely check this out. My friend Patty Millay just shared a recipe for Alabama White Sauce, which she says is guaranteed to "up your summer BBQ game." I'll admit it.  Until Patty told me about Alabama White Sauce, I had never heard of it.

I did a quick YouTube search and found this.

Patty is a pro at taking recipes and adding her own twist to them. She certainly did that here. Here's Patty's take on Alabama White Sauce and what inspired her to tackle the recipe.

From Patty:

It's the beginning of Summer and grilling season is fast upon us!  I wanted to share this recipe to help kick up the flavor of your grilled proteins!  This is great on grilled chicken (and we all need something new for those boneless skinless chicken breasts)!  This is a great idea to step up your grill game for Father's Day too!

Patty Millay
1 cup mayonnaise
1/3 cup apple cider vinegar
3 teaspoons water
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
2 teaspoons brown sugar
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/4 teaspoon hot sauce
Stir together mayonnaise, vinegar, water, Worcestershire sauce, brown sugar, mustard, salt, garlic powder, onion powder, pepper and hot sauce in a small mixing bowl.  Serve immediately or chilled.  Can be stored in refrigerator up to 3 days.

If you are serving to children (or picky adults), just omit the hot sauce.  If you don't care for hot sauce you can substitute red pepper flakes.

This will really spruce up your chicken tenderloins. Patty served it up with fresh garden sides!

And, of course, what goes better with a good ole summer BBQ than beer?

LOOK: Best Beers From Every State

To find the best beer in each state and Washington D.C., Stacker analyzed January 2020 data from BeerAdvocate, a website that gathers user scores for beer in real-time. BeerAdvocate makes its determinations by compiling consumer ratings for all 50 states and Washington D.C. and applying a weighted rank to each. The weighted rank pulls the beer toward the list's average based on the number of ratings it has and aims to allow lesser-known beers to increase in rank. Only beers with at least 10 rankings to be considered; we took it a step further to only include beers with at least 100 user rankings in our gallery.
