A little bit of Oklahoma history... in "My Brother Oog's Barbeque Sauce"
For years, Loyd
Moreland (known as Oog by close friends and family) spent time smoking
meat for barbeque get-togethers with friends. And, of course, no good
barbeque is complete without the right sauce to top it off. Thankfully,
Loyd is no stranger to the kitchen either, and he spent many hours
perfecting his popular barbeque sauce.
In 1989, he finally
perfected his recipe and since that time, family and friends have not
been able to get enough of his special barbeque sauce. People are
always asking him to make them some. Loyd only gave a certain few his
recipe, and before long, many of us were making his barbeque to give
away as Christmas gifts. Loyd would also make his barbeque sauce and
give it to his buddies in the racing industry.
By 2011, the requests
for Loyd's barbeque sauce were so abundant that it became impossible to
keep friends content. So his sister decided that it was time to label
the barbeque sauce and market it - so that more people could enjoy the
great barbeque sauce our family loves.
In fact, the name for
the barbeque sauce actually originated with a common statement made to
his sister by those wanting the sauce. "Hey, when can we get some more
of your brother Oog's barbeque sauce?"
Not only is the name
special, but the logo also depicts the true heart of a man who loves his
horses. The label on each bottle shows a race horse with the OOG
trademark in the center. This trademark was first printed for jockey
silks and jackets to represent Loyd's horse training business. Now, it
also represents another part of his life.... his amazing barbeque
sauce. And thus begins a new legacy.
