“Good food brings people together, great food builds community​– and BBQ does both.”

At Bella Rouge Barbecue , our mission is to do just that. We hope our flavors inspire you to share your food with the people you love and build new memories. Our brand is built on family, which is exactly why our founders Kathy & Brent Stevenson decided to name the brand after their dog, Bella Rouge!

For years we’ve been creating delicious food products for local communities everywhere that contain a whole lot of love, heart & soul – products like our signature, all­purpose barbecue sauce, available in 2 flavors – Bella Rouge Original and Chipotle.

Inspired by a centuries ­old family recipe, this distinctive Louisiana­ styled sauce is a perfect balance of tang, spice, and sweetness – with a little heat. Our small batch, all­purpose barbecue sauce contains chunks of slow­cooked caramelized onions, cracked black pepper, southern molasses, with smoky paprika and hints of parsley, and citrus – plus our secret ingredient – locally brewed beer from Short’s award winning micro­brewery in Michigan.

We’ve kept our complete recipe a secret, but we will let you in on this: our first secret ingredient is love, the second is a simmering passion for Highland Park, Detroit and the “Mitten State”, where our sauce is made – and the third is our joy of being in the coastal city of Charleston, South Carolina!

Whether you’re firing up the grill for your next cookout or tailgate, or preparing dinner for the family at home, Bella Rouge’s all­purpose Barbecue Sauce goes great with literally every snack or meal – for any occasion.

Find us at your local grocery store or market, or o​rder online ​at bellarougebbq.com, and we’ll ship it right to your door.
