Granddaddy Scales made his original sauce for over 40 years in the shed behind their home in Elberton, GA. Bill helped to make batches of sauce using boat paddles to stir the giant pots. Granddaddy always kept the recipe a secret but shared the loved sauce with family and friends! Granddaddy passed away in July 2003 and Gran found the sauce recipe carefully folded in his wallet, which was shared with Bill shortly after. The recipe was memorized by Granddaddy but harder for Bill to follow. With some practice and a few mistakes, Bill finally mastered it, and received a nod of approval from Gran. Bill has followed in his Granddaddy’s footsteps and spent many hours perfecting all of our Granddaddy Sauces. For us it is more than just BBQ Sauce, it is an expression of love for family, friends and food! We hope you enjoy!"
