Good afternoon and welcome to this special July edition of the monthly newsletter. I am your host, Jeff Phillips, and I have lots of great information for you in this edition on some super exciting things that are happening at

Happy July 4th

I hope everyone had a BLAST on the 4th (I know.. a sad, worn out attempt at a pun) anyway… I had a great time smoking up lots of goodies for the family and friends and I sure hope you did as well. You know the 4th of July just would not be the same without all those grills and smokers blowing out smoke and fixin's worthy of a royal celebration.

For some the grill is pulled out of the garage or storage shed onto the patio for the first time all year needing the spiders and the months of neglect cleaned from all the surfaces…


You probably won't find too many of those around here. The guys and gals that frequent this website are a hardcore bunch of smoking fanatics that you will likely find smoking in rain, snow, sleet and all types of inclement weather.

You guys put the smoke into smoking meat and I am proud to be your host and editor of smoking meat newsletter!

Alabama White Sauce

Folks, I don't know if you have ever heard of Alabama white sauce but it is something you need to familiarize yourself with.. it is more prominent in some of our southern states like Alabama and it is de—–licious!

I asked if anyone had a good Alabama white sauce recipe the other day in the new forum and within a very short time I had several recipes posted so I thought I would share one of them with you.. this one is Big Bob Gibson's White Sauce and was posted by Undertaker2401 from Paula Deen's show on the Food Channel:


  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/4 cup vinegar
  • 1/2 teaspoon prepared horseradish
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons apple cider


Combine all ingredients in bowl and mix well. dip your chicken in it after cooking

You have to try this, especially on chicken but, I also had some on some pulled pork and I was in hog heaven!
