Grandpa Hammann’s BBQ Sauce has a story about its development that is rich in flavor as the sauce itself. Founder of Hammann’s Butcher Shop, John Hammann, developed his homemade sauce while serving as a mess hall sergeant in the United States Army over 50 years ago. When Hammann’s opened their doors in 1991, john was able to refer to his old military recipe for BBQ sauce that complemented many of the butcher shop meats perfectly.
The name for Grandpa Hammann’s BBQ Sauce was coined by Johns oldest granddaughter, Abbey. At a young age, Abbey respectfully, yet firmly, let her dad know that she didn’t want that “other” BBQ Sauce because she only liked Grandpa Hammann’s BBQ Sauce. The name stuck!
