Like Everything Good, It Began in a Trailer…

Walter Nash, Sr., who friends call Lefty, grew up picking cotton in the fields of Georgia. Knowing that he wanted more, a young Lefty was determined to start his own business.

Later in life, he married Margaret, and the couple worked together to fulfill his lifetime dream. Lefty noticed that his wife’s cooking always received enthusiastic praise at family gatherings. With fond memories of cranking up the blues and smoking suckling pigs in a manmade pit with his father, Ben, Lefty dreamed of opening his own restaurant.

In 1989, Lefty and his wife Margaret fulfilled his dream…He opened a roadside restaurant out of a trailer in Hughesville, Maryland offering freshly cooked slow-roasted meats flavored with their signature spices and homemade barbecue sauce. Their original menu consisted of barbecue ribs, chicken, and North Carolina style pork. Margaret prepared homestyle sides to complement the barbecue.

People came from far and wide to get a taste of Lefty’s barbecue. Lines formed alongside the mesquite and hickory wood piles as smoke poured from the top of the shack. The aroma wafted through the air as hungry guests awaited their turn to get a taste of the renowned homemade barbecue.

The signature barbecue sauce created so long ago is the same recipe used today in Lefty’s BBQ Sauce product. The well-balanced ingredients in the smooth sauce are quickly becoming a household favorite among adoring loyal customers.

Today, the Nash family operates a full-service BBQ restaurant & catering business in Waldorf, Maryland.They still offer homestyle favorites, using premium quality meats and ingredients. In the spirit of great food, Lefty and his family want to share! That’s why they sell their famous BBQ sauce and mixes from their online store, so that households across the country can have a taste of Lefty’s BBQ in their own kitchens.
