The Story Behind Carla's True South BBQ Sauce
In case I have not been blessed to meet yet...
My name is Carla McAuliffe and the proud owner & creator of Carla's True South Sauces.
I grew up in Memphis, Tennessee and learned early, the importance of love, morals and respect in every aspect of my life (family, friends & business).
Like so many others who are creative in the kitchen, people who tasted my sauces were always telling me...
After years of family, friends and neighbors begging for more sauce, and prompting me to get it on the market and into local grocery stores.
"I just did it!"
But my 2 sons....well...they were my greatest initiators by saying...
"Mom, How do you expect us to learn to be successful, if you don't show us how?" (Ouch!)
So, here I am, meeting and selling my sauces to all you wonderful folks. Seeing your smiles & happy eyes with your 1st taste, always warms my heart, because I know you don't have to pretend to like it, just to be nice - YOU REALLY DO LOVE IT & make sure I know it and everyone else around too. LOL
Even those who don't like BBQ sauce or mayo, are willing to try it because they see so many people's happy reactions. Then they understand, grab a jar (or 2, or 3) smile and start planning their next meal tonight or simply what they're gonna dip in it.
I look forward to bringing you many new creations, so keep your eyes open and your taste buds ready! And always know that everything is made with love!
BBQ sauce is a very personal thing & I thank you for letting my family be in your family's kitchen.
Don't forget to "Share the Love" AND
Thank you all so much! Carla.
Last year, our Sweet Heat Sauce took 2nd place in our 1st BBQ food competition at Boca Downtown Throwdown.
AND the very famous....Bobby Flay was the judge.
What an exciting time and we met so many wonderful new customers!
We are looking forward to the next win!
Our BBQ sauces have a incredible, mouth water taste but.......
So get "Happy & Healthy from the Inside" with our sauces.
And don't forget to .... "SHARE THE LOVE"

To all those who were effected and may still be in the path of Hurricane Dorian, we send you prayers for safety and a quick recovery.
Carla's True South Sauces was spared the painfully slow wrath of this powerful hurricane but so many were not. Though we feel blessed, our hearts are still saddened by the devastation in it wake.
To our wonderful customers, our stores and restaurants who carry our sauces, our friends and family - please reach out to us to let us know you are ok if I have not been able to reach you. You matter, not just to our business but as friends.
With all my heart, Carla
