Sweet Pa Paw's
Original Louisiana Bar-B-Que Sauce
- ABOUT US -
At Sweet Pa Paw's, we are unconditionally devoted with lot's of love to bring to you our grandfather's homemade bar-b-que sauce. For over 60 years, Sweet Pa Paw's boldly enriched homemade recipe has filled our meats and pastas with permeating tangy spices for good eating.
As a child growing up in a small rural town in southeast Louisiana, the warm
sunning days were filled with family laughter, love, the best eating in the world,
and our grandfather (who we affectionately called) SWEET PA PAW. It did not
have to be a special occasion for him to fire up his old makeshift grill, that he
would patch up here and there to keep it functioning, and barbeque for us.
Sweet Pa Paw was a master at grilling. He was known to be the best around in the
area. He worked at a Barbeque shack on I-10 going East into Louisiana. As soon as you crossed over the Sabine River Bridge, coming from Texas where the two
states line met, and next to Louisiana's tourist stop was a Barbeque shack
called Buster Johnson. No, Sweet Pa Paw did not own it, but his Barbeque made
the place. Every piece of Brisket, Rib,
Chicken, Sausage, and every other grill favorite were filled with Sweet Pa Paw's magic.
But it was his signature sauce that the customers flocked in for a taste of. They came
in droves to buy barbeque, just for a sample of the sauce that covered those delicious
meats. I never saw him season his meats with a lot of spices because all the flavor
came from the sauce. When he would make his sauce at home, the other children
were too busy playing, I made a point to watch him make his sauce. Each time he made
it, it was different, but the results were the same. A little of this, a little of that, the flavor and
aroma was always un-measurable.
Throughout the years that childhood memory has stayed
with me. It has been a 30-year dream, and 6 more years in the making, to bring
you the essence of my Sweet Pa Paw's homemade sauce. The taste with its natural
spices, citrus, tomato base, with just the right amount of sweet and tangy that all blend
well together. Once you taste it, Sweet Pa Paw's speaks for itself. I hope you enjoy Sweet Pa Paw's sauce as much as I enjoy sharing it with you.
LOVE YOU, SPPGB
