About Us

The Story Behind Carla's Creations & Carla's True South BBQ Sauce

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...  

  • "You should have your own BBQ sauce business"  
  • "Your sauce is so much better than the other stuff in stores, why aren't you selling yours?"  
  • And the famous.........."Carla, I'm gonna kick your be-hind if you don't do something with your sauce! (or give it to me & I will)". 

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.
