Cackalacky (and derivations thereof) is an ages old nickname for world renowned Carolina Cookout Country – the place that most folks recognize as the very birthplace of the Great American Cookout as well as the world’s first sweet potato-based Spice Sauce. As a matter of fact we believe that Cackalacky Spice Sauce (A.K.A. “The official zest of the Carolinas”) may actually be the eponym for the famous gustatory destination. And, while it is extremely flattering that the Cackalacky nomenclature seems to have found a happy home in urban American slang (and rural brogue, military jargon, skete punks, and biker culture, too), the simple fact is that folks have been rapping about the famous sauce recipe and name for eons. Here’s a song about Cackalacky that was written circa 1937 (and re-recorded years later): http://www.cackalacky.com/singalong.php
Hope this helps!
