  In our opinion all great businesses have humble beginnings, that's why we take pride in our roots that started down south on the Brazil Plantation in Powhatan, Northern Louisiana many years ago.  

our founders

Meet James and Elsie Turner, Co-Founders of JT's Original Louisiana BBQ Sauce. James and Elsie Turner are from Shreveport, Louisiana but have lived in the Gig Harbor Area for 30 years! 

They previously owned and operated Bar-B-Que restaurants in the local Gig Harbor area for a number of years and have now moved towards bottling their award winning sauces and putting them onto shelves of stores such as Harbor Greens, Heritage Distillery and more. 

A passion for bbq

James is a retired firefighter from the Port of Seattle Fire Department, since retiring he has followed his passion of BBQ by bottling his sauces and taking part in owning and operating BBQ Restaurants in the Gig Harbor area. 

"Down in the south BBQ is family, fun and friends, whenever you wanted to have a fun affair you would have a BBQ".
