Sweet and tangy sauces designed to take your menu to new heights.
A Little Sauce Goes A Long Way
In 1985, Chicago’s own Chef Larry perfected his family’s recipe for a sweet and tangy BBQ sauce and entered it into the country’s largest rib cook-off. Named after Chef Larry’s younger brother, who earned the nickname shootin’ hoops on the west side of Chicago, Sweet Baby Ray’s beat nearly 700 entrants to become an overnight sensation. Today, with more than 30 years of experience and 20 sauces under our belt, there’s no denying it: “The Sauce is The Boss”.
