Wildman’s Backwoods BBQ
As legend has it, Jim “Wildman” Williams first created his now famous, Backwoods BBQ sauce in the North Carolinian bush during the prohibition era. His sauce was distributed through the most notorious liquor routes, reaching the entire Eastern seaboard and across the Northern Border. As prohibition reached fever pitch, authorities believed the sauce operation was a front for more nefarious practices and burned it all to the!ground. However, crafty Jim Williams was able to send one final case, along with the recipe, to Canada so the tradition could live on.
Fast forward to today and there are now two, incredible sauces being made right here in Ontario. The smokiness is unrivaled, but it is up to your taste buds whether you want Sweet Original or XXX! One thing is for sure, this sauce is the stuff of folklore for a reason!
