NEW! Spring 2020!

A BBQ Sauce that has been in the works for three years.

It’s been tested at BBQ competitions including Memphis in May, and has allowed House of Q competition BBQ team to win awards.  The final tweaks have been made and it’s time to share Five Star Competition BBQ Sauce with those that love to

Grill Like a Champion!​

There's always a tale to tell

Our BBQ Story

It started by using Mom's stock pot...

…to simmer peeled apples, adding molasses, honey, spices and plenty of creativity and tasting…  and then we used it at our very first BBQ competition.  One could say it would be a bold decision to use that home-made Apple Butter BBQ Sauce, but we would rather say

"It just tastes so good!"

The awards from that day fifteen years ago keep coming to this very day and BBQ Brian Misko, the sauce-crafter and House of Q Pitmaster, has accumulated plenty!  

House of Q BBQ Sauces and Spices are now available in retailers all over Canada, USA and beyond and the flavors are convincing grillers that  

"You Can Grill Like a Champion!"

House of Q is a BBQ Team, a BBQ Sauce and Spice company, and BBQ Brian is a great source for education and inspiration.

We’ve trained at House of Q to be the best against world-class BBQ teams.  We strive to win awards and to take steps towards achieving flavour and cooking perfection.

We also like sharing especially with those that want to be better cooks and desire to create outstanding flavor!

That means House of Q  creates, tests our flavors at BBQ competitions and then creates spices and sauces that we use in our award-winning competition kitchen.  That is the spirit behind our products.

We want to cook our best so we use the best equipment around and so we in turn we sell grills, smokers, coolers and more so the backyard cooking enthusiast can be better at what they do at home.  Who knows, maybe we will see you at a competition BBQ event too!
