White BBQ sauce is unique… there are no tomatoes in the sauce. It’s a mayonnaise-based sauce, made tangy with the addition of vinegar, horseradish and mustard. Offered in most every BBQ restaurant in North Alabama, the sauce is eaten with everything from French fries to chicken and ribs. The unique, tangy flavor is the perfect complement to just about everything. Without the Internet, it would be pretty much unheard of outside of North Alabama.
Hog Heaven, located adjacent to Centennial Park in downtown Nashville, is literally a hole in the wall BBQ joint. While there are a few “outdoor” tables most of the business is takeout with folks enjoying the hickory-smoked meats in the park. What makes Hog Heaven unique is they make a white barbecue sauce that is absolutely fantastic for poultry.
