Regional Barbecue Guide
Adding some regional flair to your favorite grilled meats doesn't turn them into barbecue, but it's close!
White Barbecue Sauce: This specialty of northern Alabama relies on mayonnaise for its base, and includes mustard, garlic and horseradish. It’s a classic partner for barbecued chicken. The vegetal spice of horseradish can be a problem when pairing a dish with wine. Ideally you’ll want something a bit sweet here, but at the same time you’ll need a wine with assertive acidity to help keep everything well balanced. For that you’ll probably need to find a blend that includes some Gewurztraminer, along with other grapes that can make-up for the low acid typical of this variety.
