The Re-discovery of a “Lost Recipe”


Growing up in a traditional small southern town, everything was “made-from-scratch” or homemade.  Our community was very close-knit and young women were customarily trained by several women within the community on proper etiquette when cooking in the kitchen. 


This diverse learning environment created countless combinations of southern spices and flavor.  However, one particular combination of spices was mastered by a woman affectionately known throughout the community as Ms. Mattie.


Ms. Mattie’s blending of ingredients re-created the old time southern mustard-vinegar base considered a” lost recipe”, but a vintage flavor in true southern barbeque taste, and surprisingly, not sweet.  Asked for by popular majority among the community, Ms. Mattie and many other women in this small town used this wonderful sauce frequently to give flavor to dinners sold during church fundraisers and various community functions.  


As children, on these occasions, we could smell a magnificent aroma teeming throughout the neighborhood.


Ms. Mattie’s Bar-B-Q Sauce is the specialty “do-it-all” sauce with authentic southern style and southern flavor.  It has been at the center of a cooking and barbecuing family tradition for over 100 years.

"Something New in Bar-B-Q"


The Rib Place, Inc. was established in 1993 by founders the late LB, Sr. and KD Moultrie as a family owned and operated company.  Initially the company primarily offered seasonal catering/event specializing in recipes infused with southern spices and flavor.  

We then decided to concentrate our efforts on manufacturing the “lost recipe”.  Pioneering a new way of cooking inside the home, and barbequing outside the home.

After several years of perfecting our uniquely tasteful formula, Ms. Mattie’s Bar-B-Q Sauce is the premiere product to be debuted by The Rib Place, Inc in the summer of 2010.
