Proud to be part of the MTSU BLUE RAIDER RADIO NETWORK for the Sixth Season! Here's the recipe for this weeks TAILGATE TIP for the Middle Tennessee State University Blue Raider vs Alabama A&M Bulldogs football game. Being a team from Alabama... I decided to go with ... wait for it... ALABAMA WHITE SAUCE!


Grilling on the Grove

Yep, a classic when it comes to grilling, barbecue, and good eats in the state of Alabama. Thank you Big Bob for putting this classic sauce on the barbecue and tailgating map! It's time to bring this recipe back to Murfreesboror for some tailgating at the Grove... Walnut Grove that is. For non-MTSU folk - Walnut Grove is an open space on campus that dates back to the 1930's. Here's a plaque with the cool History.

Thanks to SpaceRaider on photobucket for these cool images!


Totally Sidetracked! Back to Cool Alabama White Sauce!

Speaking of cool stuff from Alabama... besides my mom, wife, and in-laws, and that would be - Eli Gold. The voice of the Crimson Tide - has helped me more times than I can count! He was a guest a few times on my radio show back in the ESPN 1370 radio days. He helped me with information for my Talladega Superspeedway book. His amazing shrimp recipe will be featured in the Alabama Hometown Cookbook. And, he's answered just about any NASCAR related question I've had while covering motorsports.

Had to work in a couple of book plus there!

But, I'm the radio tailgate guru for MTSU - which means this recipe is about MTSU! So, we're stealing the white sauce recipe and bringing it north! Here ya go tailgate fans, whip up some Blue Raider Alabama A&M White Sauce! And, don't forget to listen to the Blue Raider Radio Network for my tailgate tips... and GREAT FOOTBALL!


Blue Raider Alabama A&M White Sauce

White sauce is awesome on any type of grilled chicken, pulled smoked barbecue chicken, baked chicken, turkey, and pultry in general. But - don't be scared to try it on a batch of pulled pork barbecue! This version is slightly different from the white sauce recipe that I did when MTSU played the Crimson Tide. For one, the batch is smaller which makes it perfect for storing longer than a week or so. Plus, this recipe is a bit easier on the pocket book when it comes to ingredients. It can probably be made with stuff you have in your kitchen now! Here's the recipe!

Ingredients

  • 2 cups mayonnaise
  • 1/2 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 1/4 cup prepared extra-hot horseradish
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 teaspoons prepared yellow mustard
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder

Directions: How easy is this? Mix it all together, cover and refrigerate until you are ready to splash some on some grilled or barbecue chicken!


Just in case you were wondering about the other recipe for white sauce.... here ya go!

Kent's Original 'Bama White Sauce

Dashes of lemon juice
Several dashes of black pepper
Worcestershire sauce, or soy sauce, or even steak sauce, a dash or two

Combine all of the ingredients in a bowl or blender. Use a mixer, or the blender... and blend. Add a bit of water or milk to thin if needed. Cover, chill, and get ready for AWESOMENESS! Use as a sauce, baste, marinade, dipping sauce, on chicken, pork, and more!

Richard Brickhouse Celebrates Talladega Win

Talladega, NASCAR and SPEED! The racetrack in central Alabama known as Talladega Super Speedway, originally named Alabama International Motor Speedway, was built on the site of a World War II era Air Force base in the heart of Alabama. NASCAR founder Bill France and his family envisioned a race track that would be faster, larger, and more exciting than any track built to date. Construction began on May 23, 1968, and was completed on September 13, 1969. The end result is the most modern speedway ever built. Often simply referred to as 'Dega" the track is 2.66 miles long, its high-banked turns are nearly three stories tall, and race cars have reached speeds over 200 miles per hour. It is so popular that it is said to become one of the largest "temporary"cities in the state every race weekend. Check out some of the great images from the book in the slide show.
