Don’t know much about our history? Here’s a little help

barbequesauce - Tom Jenkins' HistoryTom Jenkins’ BBQ Restaurant and Sauce was founded by two friends, Harry Harrell and Gary Torrence.

Both men’s passion for cooking led to the creation of Tom Jenkins BBQ Sauce. They knew they had a hit when family members and friends raved about its great taste and always requested that they bring it to the gatherings.

In 1990, Tom Jenkins BBQ Sauce was introduced to the public via a roadside food trailer. The weekend trailer operation lasted seven years which resulted in them building a loyal customer base. A building across the street from their trailer became available, and in 1996, Harry and Gary opened Tom Jenkins BBQ Restaurant.
