About Us

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.

1934 “Original” BBQ Sauce is Central Texas’ oldest BBQ sauce. For over six decades our true Texas Original sauce was served to several hundred thousand Texans at an annual BBQ fundraising event in Waco, but never sold.

We are proud to make our family BBQ sauce available to all for the first time.

Our internationally award winning 1934 Bloody Mary Mix was introduced in 2018 and has quickly raised the bar while setting a new standard of excellence in the Bloody Mary industry.
