Smoked Chicken with Alabama White Sauce

Prep Time 15 minutes
Cook Time 1 hour
Total Time 1 hour 15 minutes


  • 3-4 Chicken Leg Quarters
  • 1 cup Mayo
  • 1/2 cup Apple Cider Vinegar
  • 1/4 cup horseradish
  • 1/4 cup Classic BBQ Rub
  • 1 TBS Worcestershire Sauce
  • 1 TBS Hot Sauce
  • 1/2 TBS kosher salt
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1/2 tsp cayenne
  • 1/2 tsp msg optional


  1. Season both sides of the leg quarters with Classic BBQ Rub

  2. Combine all other ingredients into a mixing both and incorporate thoroughly.

  3. Smoke chicken @ 275 for 45-60 minutes. Chicken is done when the thermometer reads 165 when placed near the leg and thigh joint.

  4. Dunk the chicken pieces in the sauce and coat evenly. It may seem like a lot of sauce but it absorbs quickly and does not overpower the flavor of the chicken.

  5. Enjoy and be sure and tag me on social media with your cook. @ilovemeatdotcom
