Meet Daddy Sam... And His Sawce

daddy-sam-cowboy

Way back in 1883, 16-year-old Sam Oglesby got off a stagecoach in Mertzon, Texas, and bought a cowboy hat at the general store. Before long he’d married the pretty young shop clerk who sold it to him and was raising a pack of kids with her on their west Texas ranch. Everyone called him Daddy Sam and everyone loved his Bar-B-Que Sawce. Now you can love it too.

See the photo on the left? That’s Daddy Sam on his horse. He’s the guy who started it all.
