The inspiration for Golden Blends BBQ originated in Page County, Va. where a family friend, Bill Bailey, owned a BBQ pit. He was successful for many years, and before his passing shared a simple, four ingredient recipe with my father who was known for his culinary alchemy. My father developed this gourmet sauce recipe adding whole, fresh ingredients such as garlic cloves, raw horseradish, and freshly diced onions. His ideal batch was achieved a short time later and was known by all friends and family as “the perfect balance of sweet & tangy”. In 2009, our family recipe was named “Bootlegger’s Blend” and became available to the public. A short time later, the next-generation alchemist was experimenting in the kitchen and developed a spicier recipe. We coined the new formula “Black Powder Blend”, for it’s ability to add some fire to it’s signature tangy sweetness.
We will continue to grow our small family business while keeping true to the finest, most wholesome ingredients available. We hope our sauce complements memorable backyard BBQs for years to come!
