Alabama is know for its "white BBQ Sauce" and if you are going to represent the regions then you need to bring in the product form the person who invented the "White Sauce". The White sauce and his Red sauce are so different from anything i have ever tasted. They are unique and delicious. Here is a little history on Big Bob Gibson

"In 1925, Bob Gibson served barbecue from a makeshift table made of oak planks nailed to a large sycamore tree in his backyard.  Fresh out of his hand-dug pit came smoke and smells that drew people from miles away.  Weighing 300 pounds with a 6’4” frame, it was easy to see why friends and other railway workers called him Big Bob.  “Your future is not in the railroad, but in Bar-B-Q”, said Roslyn Mitchell.  It was with that, Big Bob Gibson started a family barbecue restaurant tradition that has lasted has lasted over 80 years and 4 generations.

Big Bob Gibson’s storefront bobbed up and down all over Decatur Alabama, always moving to a bigbobcashregister-s1.jpgbigger and more populated location.  He specialized in smoking pork and chicken in his hickory fired brick pits. Word spread of his Southern Flavors and Big Bob’s unique Bar-B-Q White Sauce recipe. Three things contributed to his success; his delicious food, that tangy White Sauce, and his charismatic personality.  “Big Bob Gibson never met a stranger,” said Mattie Johnson, an employee for over 50 years. The tables were always full and the lines at the counter grew longer with people placing orders, and just wanting to talk to Big Bob.  Demand for his food prompted him to initiate a curb service, where orders were taken and delivered directly to a customer’s car window."
