With team cooking on the field, Lions decide to launch their own barbecue sauce

VANCOUVER - The B.C. Lions have been cooking up some wins on the field lately so the CFL team has decided to launch its own signature brand of barbecue sauce and marinade.

The team has partnered with local chef Ann Kirsebom to launch B.C. Lions Barbecue Sauce.

The sauce is made from the finest Silver Tequila, organic locally squeezed citrus, fresh garlic, tomatoes and Japanese soy beans. The unique Lions blend is handcrafted in small batches to ensure quality.

"It’s a versatile sauce that can be used in so many ways I believe it will be a favourite among fans,'' Dennis Skulsky, the Lions president and chief executive officer, said in a release.

The sauce can be used for traditional barbecue applications such as steaks, burgers and chicken wings. It's also perfect for other West Coast favourites such as fajitas, rice bowls and salmon. It can be used as a salad dressing and dip.

B.C. Lions Barbecue Sauce will be available in selected local stores.
