White Barbecue Sauce

By Donna W.

2 cups mayo
2 tbsp ground black pepper
2 tbsp salt
6 tbsp lemon juice
6 tbsp distilled white vinegar
4 tbsp white sugar

Combine all ingredients & mix until smooth. Use to baste chicken, pork chops or ribs as they cook on the grill. Serve extra as dipping sauce.

*When I use this for chicken, I like to marinate the chicken in the sauce before grilling.
