Their most well known product is anything at all with the term “firecracker” in front of it. It’s a blend of their residence-created aloha sauce with sambal oelek chili paste added, generating a spicy and just-sweet-adequate glaze. It is turn into so well-liked Sutton bottled it and sells it out of the truck. Any protein on the menu can (and should) receive the firecracker cure.
