A surprisingly wonderful mayonnaise-based sauce that you need to try today. You will not believe how good they have it in Alabama.
The sauce here is modeled after an American Test Kitchen/Cooks Country recipe. That recipe had no lemon juice. Most other Alabama White BBQ sauce do. So it is there as an “option”. In practice, I add 1 tablespoon and feel that 2 tablespoons is a bit much. I think ATK was wrong to leave it out.
