Randy had an idea of taking Big Salinas Barbecue to another level by making his own barbecue sauce. He wanted to make a type of glaze that would enhance seasonings. His first creation was not very good but he said “it can only get better” and it did. He won his first award for the sauce in 2017 but for him it was never quite right. He continued tweaking his sauce until one day he finally told his family “I did it! This is the perfect sauce.” His sauce won more awards and the demand for it began to grow, as he shared it with others.
In early 2020, he took a chance on his sauce and bottled it up. He said he wanted to sell it in stores. We did not know how he was going to do it but Randy had a plan. He kept working until Spring of 2020 when the dream became a reality and Big Salinas Barbecue Sauce Original was sold at Charred 380 in McKinney, TX. Randy kept at it and now the sauce’s are being sold in several stores all across Texas and being shipped to over 40 states with hopes of hitting all 50. Who knows maybe we will ship to other countries one day.
As history has shown, Randy was not satisfied and he created a spicy version of the sauce which is sold in stores as well. Both of the sauces have rave reviews and are a big hit among other pitmasters, backyard cooks, and families. We have had people tell us they use the sauces on traditional things like brisket, pulled pork and chicken. We also have been told that some use the sauce on chicken nuggets, buffalo wings, jalapeno poppers, meatloaf, and dip for their chips. You see this sauce is good for just about anything.
Randy is now venturing into rubs and new versions of the sauce. We can’t wait to see what else he will create.
