California’s Cookin’ Cowboy: The J. Lee Roy's Story

J. Lee Roy, himself, givin' a wink and carvin' up some barbeque"Folks think unless you’re from Texas, you can’t barbeque," California’s Cookin’ Cowboy said. After they taste my ribs with Dippin’ Sauce, they're gonna ask, 'Where the hell is Texas?'"

Over 25 years ago, J. Lee Roy created the Dippin’ Sauce for his large family and friends. As a result, he was encouraged to share his original recipe with the public. The reputation of his sweet and hot creation succeeded him. Soon, strangers were knocking on the door of his home asking if they could buy a pint, quart or gallon for their barbeque parties.

Today, J. Lee Roy’s manufacturing plant is still in Oroville, California. We owe our overwhelming success through our customers’ word of mouth. Our objective is to provide our product conveniently throughout the United States. Find J. Lee Roy’s in grocery stores near you.

J. Lee Roy and his wife “Diamond Lil” are currently retired and reside in Oroville, California.
