“Good Food Brings People Together, Great Food Builds Community – and BBQ Does Both!”

Inspired by a centuries-old family recipe, Bella Rouge’s distinctive Louisiana-styled sauce is a perfect balance of tang, spice, and sweetness – with a little heat!

Our small batch, all-purpose barbecue sauce contains chunks of slow-cooked caramelized onions, cracked black pepper, southern molasses, with hints of parsley and citrus – plus our secret ingredient: locally brewed beer from Short’s award winning micro-brewery in Michigan.

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

A Word From Our Founders

“In our house, food is love, and cooking is like dancing to our favorite tunes as we sync both of our culinary styles and cultures – which spans from Labadieville, Louisiana (aka Labadie), to the Northwest and out to the rest of the world. We, Kathy and Brent, joined forces, families, passions and tastes into one home­style bottle of “beautiful red” sauce! Our passions for fusing unique and traditional flavors first collided in Seattle where we met, and we have since found our new home (and kitchen!) in Charleston. We believe that a huge key to making the perfect sauce is really understanding that barbecue is very personal, and Bella Rouge Barbecue strives to have a place at the family tables across the world with our personal recipe. If our first secret ingredient is love, the second is a simmering passion for Detroit and the Mitten State where our sauce is made – and the third is our joy of being in our current home & office in the beautiful city of Charleston, South Carolina! We hope that our small batch sauce becomes a “beautiful red” dinner staple for you and your family to share and enjoy on EVERYTHING that you love – every single day.”
