Chasing BBQ: An Alabama & Georgia Feast
Chicken with a tangy, mayonnaise based white barbecue sauce is an Alabama classic. What I love about this beer can chicken recipe is that you don’t need a smoker to end up with a beautifully barbecued whole chicken. If you want to impart some smoke flavor while you grill the chicken, try one of our easy-to-use Smoker Cans; they’re filled with quick smoking wood pellets and work on a gas or charcoal grill. For an authentic Alabama experience, don’t skip Stefan’s no-cook, flavorful white BBQ sauce!
Hot & Fast Ribs & Woody’s Peach BBQ Sauce
There are two reasons I love hot & fast ribs: the awesome char flavor you get using this quick-grilling method and the fact that you don’t need a smoker to make them. They yield a different flavor and texture than low-and-slow smoked ribs, but are equally delicious. Woody’s barbecue sauce is made with pureed peaches and Georgia Peach Spice. The sweet-spiced sauce is a perfect match for the charred ribs.
Cajun Fried Okra
No southern BBQ plate is complete without fried okra. These are easy to make and yield a super crunchy fried bite. Plus, the all-cornmeal coating makes these gluten-free! They’re seasoned with an addictive Cajun salt, a blend of Cajun Style Blackening Seasoning and kosher salt. I guarantee they’ll be gobbled up quickly.
Southern Style Turnip Greens
I thought I was more of a collard greens girl before I made these—turnip greens may be my new favorite. Flavored simply with bacon, broth, and Wash Park All-Purpose Seasoning, these are done within an hour of starting them on the stovetop. If you have any leftovers, they make a great breakfast side with scrambled eggs and biscuits.
Coconut Cream Pie
This is always on any list of classic southern desserts. Our version has a twist, with the addition of rich, flavorful allspice to the graham crust. Combined with coconut extract and shredded coconut, this creamy dessert has a bit of Caribbean flair.
