For 60 years, Gates Bar-B-Q Sauce has been a family recipe. Since the inception
of the Original Barbecue Sauce by the founder, George W. Gates, the one barbecue
sauce has grown to a family of four barbecue sauces - "Classic Original", Extra
Hot, Sweet and Mild, and Mild; the extended family of barbecue sauces was developed
by Ollie W. Gates, president.
