Russell's Hawaiian BBQ Taquitos

Russell's Hawaiian BBQ Taquitos

Russell's BBQ Sauce, made in Lafayette, LA, is a cajun favorite. You will often see Russell and his wife Chrisanne at the Lafayette Farmers Market on Saturday cooking anything from pulled pork tacos to hamburgers all topped with his famous sauce! Their sauce is thicker than most and will go along ways. It is low in sugar and is made with their own homemade ketchup. Russell's product line ranges from Original to Brutally Hot! 

"With just enough cayenne heat for his own taste, the finished product is the ultimate blend of sweet, hot and sour. It is this Original sauce that won Russell numerous Blue Ribbons and Best In Show awards at the parish and state levels as well as at numerous BBQ festivals and rib cook-offs."
