Blake spent hours listening to Granddaddy spin'n tales about Mistress Lil, a century-old wild sow, who rambled the woods in the rolling foothills of Eastern N.C., finding lost children and weaving spells. Blake, proving himself a venturesome fellow, took to wandering the woods, tho' his granddaddy told him "if you start searchin' for Mistress Lil, you'll never find her -- lose your way and she'll find you."
One day Blake's curiosity got him lost in a stand of hickory woods, where he sat down on a stump to think. Mistress Lil rescued him and sent him home with a story about that "stir'n stump."
Years later Blake found that stump and that's where he stirred up the first batch of his bodacious sauce for a mighty Pig Pickin' that was so good even the pig approved. Blake's fame spread across the Carolina state line and now you can cook fresh pork roast, chop it up and stir in Blake's BBS Bodacious BBQ Sauce. Serve it with cornbread and cole slaw and treat yourself to a North Carolina Pig Pickin' delight.
Blake's Aunt Jayne had just chopped up, gathered up and mixed up all the fixin's needed to mix together another batch of Blake's famous Carolina Style BBQ Sauce, when she opened the cupboard door - only to see the vinegar bottle sittin' there empty down to but one dropIn a panic, Aunt Jayne ran outside, flung open the root-cellar door, and scampered down into the damp darkness. She lit up the oil lantern only to find the storage shelf empty of any vinegar. Pushing boxes and cans aside, behind all was found a big dusty sealed jug of dark red ketchup.
The happy ending to Aunt Jayne's misfortune, was the
creation of the very first, deep red BBQ sauce, the one we have all tasted
over the years in so many various flavors and concoctions. But don't forget,
Aunt Jayne's was the first, and "Original" thick dark red sauce
mixed up in that old "stir'n stump" of Blake's.

Burb's doe eyed daughter Sammye is a sweet southern little charm, with a mild streak of mischievous curiosity, who loves stirrin' up her own tasty surprises
With amight unusual likin' to mustard, Sammye regularly
covers everything with her "Yellow Sunshine". One day last fall,
"The Mistress of Mustard" flung open the pot belly stove and
smothered the then cookin' dinner with her latest yellow creation. She
stoked the fire with an apron full of fresh fallen leaves and when dinner
was served, Sammye's Sumptuous Sauce had such "Zing" it made
everybody's toes curl right up.
That ole' bull broke out of the back 40 and charged the homestead, scattering man an' beast alike. He was so mean and unfriendly, he ended up in the smokehouse. With a bit of hickory smoke and a little swamp sauce, that ole' bull turned out finger lickin' good and was the start of a Bodacious new taste treat.
On Burb's last hunting trip, ( Burb who? He is Blake's long lost 2nd cousin twice removed), he got so many turkeys they wouldn't all fit in the ice box on the porch, so he put them in the smokehouse. Some of the good ole' boys brushed a bit of kickapoo joy juice on them and a lipsmackin' taste was born. This low-calorie, low fat, finger-lickin' snack is so good you'll be beggin' for more.
