Mike “Ogre” Weeks found his grandmother’s recipe, made it his own, and before long was selling it in five gallon buckets out of the trunk of his car.

Ogre and Grandmother

With the recipe perfected after countless backyard cookouts and gatherings, childhood friends Mike and Mike bottled Ogre Sauce with the goal of being the BBQ sauce and condiment of every restaurant, food truck and family kitchen.

Chris joined the team to help spread the word about the unique flavor of Ogre Sauce just as the first bottle came off the line, and the three friends have grown the legend nationwide. Ogre Sauce is now available in Whole Foods in the South and Northeast, on the sauce bar in Tijuana Flats restaurants, and hundreds of independent grocers and delis across the country.
