Shack Sauce

The truth is my wife Leslie had been pushing me for years to put something in jars to sell at The Shack. I always seemed to fight it, but finally broke down when my staff and some guests started asking me for the recipe for our Sorghum Yellow Mustard BBQ and Sorghum Hot Sauces. As I’m a big lover of all things sorghum and don’t feel that sorghum has gotten it’s dues in recent history, figured that this was a good opportunity to bend to my wife’s pressures!“

Using sorghum from Muddy Pond in Monterey TN and southern chili mash Ian developed two unique sauces that have garnered national attention in publications such as Bloomberg News & Taste of the South Magazine. Currently sold in 50+ regional accounts across Virginia and North Carolina and shipped to all 50 states including Alaska. International distribution is in the works.


Due to the outbreak of COVID-19 The Shack’s dining room has been closed -but we are doing curbside pickup! We offer dinners Fri/Sat and meal kits/pantry staples on Sunday mornings.

As our first step toward re-opening, we are offering curbside dinner pickup on Fridays and Saturdays from 4 pm till 7 pm for the forceable future.

The process is simple – you make an online pre-order for pickup at a specific time between 4 and 7 pm, just as you would make a reservation for a table. We cannot take phone orders at this time.

Some things to note:

We are also offering our Staunton Grocery Pop-Up on Sundays from 10:30 am till 12 pm, with brunch and dinner meal kits, beer & wine, meats & pantry staples from some of our friends and farmers throughout the South and Mid-Atlantic region.

Our team is preparing some Shack favorites for your pantry and refrigerator such as our fresh pastas and pasta sauces, pimento cheese, and black garlic aioli, with more to come.

Ordering is handled the in the same way as curbside dinner, see above for details.

We hope to see you soon!
