This vinegar and mayo based sauce his roots all the way back to the 1920's when Big Bog Gibson invented it for his famed roast chickens.
The word on the street is that Bob Gibson not only smothered his chicken in the sauce for flavour, but to prevent it from drying out when serving it in large platters.
