Canadian Company Awarded For One of World’s Best BBQ Sauces

One of the primary tenets of any competitive sport is to be consistent.  House of Q’s BBQ sauces are both tasty, some say addictive, and at the same time consistently winning awards.

The company, a home-based business in Surrey, BC, has been awarded for a second year in a row as having one of the top BBQ sauces in the world at the 34th Annual American Royal World Series of BBQ in Kansas City, Missouri.

The contest is the world’s largest BBQ contest and draws 260 BBQ sauce entries from all over the United States.  House of Q’s entries were the only international entries.  Their Slow Smoke Gold Sauce and Slather (details) was entered in the mustard category and like 2012 was awarded second place for a second time.

BBQ Brian, head pitmaster and creator of the sauces, says the award is “a feather in my cap and is truly an achievement.” “Competing in Kansas City is tough and the judges really, really know their BBQ. This is awesome!”

The company`s sauces are available across Canada at specialty retailers, butcher stores and gourmet stores or online at
