Poirier’s Louisiana Style Hot Sauce honors Dustin’s Acadiana roots. As a Louisiana native, Dustin wanted to create a hot sauce that featured the flavors he grew up with in Lafayette, LA.

If Louisiana-style hot sauces are your thing, this is a must-try!
Like any good Cajun hot sauce, Poirier’s starts with high-quality Cayenne peppers that are aged to round out their bitterness, then mixed with mouth puckering vinegar.
The original Poirier’s Louisiana Style then adds garlic, celery and red habanero for an extra punch of flavor and heat. Poirier’s K.O. Edition ups the heat, adding ghost pepper powder for knockout kick.
The latest addition, Creole Maple features real, sweet maple syrup for the perfect balance of sweet and heat.
The former UFC Lightweight champ’s hot sauces naturally pair well with Southern comfort food favorites like jambalaya, shrimp and grits, or biscuits and gravy.
