img_7923J. Wilbur Foods was founded in 2007 as a tribute to Founder Andrew Holes’ father, J. Wilbur. A traveling salesman in the 1950’s, J. Wilbur created the recipe for the now top-selling Hickory Smoke Barbeque Sauce from his memory of the great Southern BBQ he tasted during his travels through Memphis. The recipe was J. Wilbur’s most prized possession, creating and sharing the delicious sauce with friends, family and interested onlookers.

In 2002, before passing due to complications with diabetes, J. Wilbur passed on the recipe for his beloved Memphis-style barbeque sauce to his son, Andrew.
