Big Bob Gibson’s Original White Sauce (3/5)



Going against the grain a bit on this one. I know this sauce has won awards and stuff, but for me – it’s like putting watery mayonnaise or Ranch dressing on your chicken.  Recently, I watched a show with the guys down at Big Bob’s restaurant actually making the actual white sauce and applying it to the chicken after a long slow smoked BBQ process, a layer of rub, an application of sauce, and re-insertion back into the heat for a brief moment. It looked fantastic and their complete preparation and total combined effort produced something that I’ve yet to try, but I bet it would be super tasty. Now if this is your goal (long cooking process with rubs and seasonings and multiple stages), then I bet you can get some great results with this sauce.  And I’d be tempted to try a nice spicy rub with the white sauce added to cool down the heat…   But for backyard grillers (which is 90% of the grill-owning population) this sauce just lacks the stick and the flavor to really add a major boost to a quick grilling session. Want to try something different?  Try Big Bob’s Mustard Sauce instead.

  1. Trust me, ya gotta make this stuff from scratch. The bottled sauce doesn’t hold a candle to home made.
