Smoked Chicken:

Alabama White Sauce:

  • 3 cups Mayonnaise
  • 1.25 cups Apple Cider Vinegar
  • 3 tbsp Prepared Horseradish
  • 3 tbsp Brown Sugar
  • 2.5 tbsp Dijon Mustard
  • 1 Lemon juiced
  • 2.5 tsp Cayenne Powder
  • 2 tsp Black Pepper
  • Kosher Salt to taste


Smoked Chicken:

  • To split your chicken, use a very sharp knife. Begin by flipping the chicken over so that the backbone is facing you.
  • Starting at the top near the neck, carefully cut one side of the backbone out while not harming the breast on the other side.
  • Once one side is free, begin slicing the opposite side of the backbone out until it is completely free.
  • Set the backbone aside to use for stock later. Flip the chicken over and find the breast bone in the middle.
  • Carefully peel it out or cut it out with a knife. Separate the two sides and repeat for all the chicken.
  • Next, seasoning generously with my Sweet Carolina Blonde rub all over the bird. Set to the side until ready to cook.
  • Preheat your smoker to about 275F. Add some wood chips or wood chunks if desired for extra smoky flavor.
  • Add the chicken to the smoker to cook for 2-2.5 hours or until it reaches 175F internal.
  • Once the chicken is done, pull it off and let it cool.
  • Dip or glaze with the Alabama White Sauce at the end, serve and enjoy!

Alabama White Sauce:

  • Mix together all the ingredients in a bowl and keep cool until ready to serve.
