Who says you have to live in the south to make great BBQ? Not Bud!

Bud’s Bar-B-Que is named after the late Bud Rogers. Bud was born in 1943 and raised in Burnaby, B.C., Canada. He moved to Pitt Meadows, B.C., in 1978, where he raised his family and resided until he passed away in 2010.

Bud was a huge fan of Southern blues music, and he encouraged and supported his son, James, in his music career. From the mid-1990s to 2010, Bud joined his son on tour several times in the Southern United States—where he fell in love with Southern barbecue.

James toured for many years with B.B. King’s bass player Russell Jackson and has been smoking Southern barbecue and perfecting various custom rubs and sauces since. James learned many secret tips and tricks over a few decades of hanging with many great Southern-barbecue pit masters. Today James continues to play blues music locally and on tour and has a smoker going every week, cooking a variety of Southern-style meats.

One of Bud’s favourite sauces is now available for you to enjoy. So the next time you grab that plateful of ribs, you’ll be saying—as Bud’s granddaughter says—“Sauce me.”

Bud’s Bar-B-Que Sauce is our way of sharing Bud’s love for Southern barbecue with you!
