It didn't happen over night, but Rufus Teague's sauce has sure come a long way. From the ol' pot he used to stir it in, to winning competitions all over the place it has still stayed pretty much the same. If he was still around there's no doubt he'd be tellin' everybody within earshot of how he knew he had something with this recipe from day one. And remember,

"Good sauce makes bad barbecue good and good barbecue gooder."
