The year was 1934 Waco, Texas… the infancy of Central Texas BBQ (smoking meats low and slow) was being forged by the early pioneers we are so grateful for today. My grandfather was one of those storied pioneers experimenting with cooking techniques thru a trial and error process.
A founding member of a Waco charitable organization that found themselves in need of funds, they chose to have a BBQ dinner to raise the needed funds. My grandfather created 1934 “Original” BBQ Sauce “Central Texas’ oldest BBQ sauce” which was served at the annual BBQ event for over over six decades. Our true Texas Original sauce was served to several hundred thousand Texans at this Waco event, but never sold.
We are proud to make our family BBQ sauce available to all for the first time.
We introduced our internationally award winning 1934 Bloody Mary Mix in 2018 and it is quickly raising the bar and setting a new “standard of excellence” in the Bloody Mary industry.
