How do your BBQ sauces compare to other sauces on the market?

Our 1934 “Original” sauce is the second oldest BBQ sauce in the US. We make all our sauces like our Original sauce was made nearly 90 years ago, using the finest premium spices and ingredients. We are not like other companies that ad water to increase the yield of a batch to decrease the cost. When this is done, additives like Xanthan gum are used to thicken the watered down sauce, then sugar and liquid smoke for flavoring is added. Our sauces start with a premium blend of ketchup, we then ad  finest spices available and Ancho chilies to provide the highest quality product with a superior taste. Since our products are not watered down, you can feel the texture of the spices on your tongue. That’s quality!

Why does it taste so good?

Because we use the highest quality ingredients available with no chemicals, fillers, preservatives, additives, water or liquid flavoring. See “How do your BBQ sauces compare to other sauces on the market?” above.
