I tried to order Cairo BBQ Sauce through this link and they took my payment through paypal and never shipped or responded to any inquiries. Had to go through paypal dispute resolution to get my money back.

Do you want the original recipe, minus the high fructose corn syrup they put in it now?

Believe what you like, but my dad had the recipe written inside a matchbook cover, given to him by Old man Shemwell himself, the originator of Shemwell's bbq and Cairo bbq sauce. He'd had it for long before I was even a twinkle in his eye.
I don't pass it around, but I do make it and give it for Christmas gifts to those who love it like I do.

I just read this article and someone was lying like a cheap rug. Original Cairo BBQ sauce has no tomato juice...no tomato products at all in it.

Shemwell's & Mack's (Cairo BBQ sauce) have two different taste to them. Yes I have always heard Shemwells does not have any tomato products in it but Mack's did. As far as that goes there used to be a difference in taste from the uptown & downtown Shemwell's sauce. I always preferred the downtown sauce.

There was a woman in Memphis who said her mother worked for one of the barbecue places here in town and that she had the recipe. If she did, it must have been a version of it because it only made a quart of the sauce. It had no tomato product in it and it tastes like Shemwell's sauce.

The Cairo BBQ sauce is sold in most stores around Murphysboro and Carbondale.

They have the sauce at Kroeger in Murphysboro. Why not just buy it from Shemwell's? Are you going to use more than they sell?

Our family has a version of the recipe for Shemwell's sauce, no tomatos. Can you give me you recipe also to see if it is the same sauce?
