Competition Awards and Media

Competition, Awards and Media

The first BBQ competition for House of Q was the BC Chili and BBQ Festival in the spring of 2005 in Vancouver, BC.

HouseOfQWhistler1704 At that competition, we were nervous, anxious and our lofty goal was simply to “NOT be last”. We accomplished that and a whole lot more…

Like thousands of BBQ teams across North America, we do our best at every event to send trays off to the trained judges to see if we warrant their points and ultimately top prize.  The prize you ask, well ribbons, trophies, cash and the undisputable right to declare you are the best.
