Alabama white barbecue sauce

I've noticed lately a few more BBQ joints here in Central Texas are playing around with white barbecue sauce. That's right: white sauce. Mayonnaise, vinegar, lemon juice, salt, pepper, and some other things, depending on the recipe. I'm a big fan. Goes so well with pulled chicken & chopped pork. I'm sure it works with brisket & sausage or anything else. Heck, drizzle it on beans. Alabama is home to white sauce, and I'm an Alabama native, so I thought I'd share this article about white sauce. Plenty of articles/videos/recipes available online. Google "Alabama white sauce." Also, I'm curious to know where, if anywhere, you've seen white sauce in Texas. Let me know!
