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 many 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!"

Wait, that looks new?

Ya, it was time for a refresh, a new look, a makeover…  whatever you call it, we look different!  It all started with the logo and then it became all the labels on the jars.  Check out the new look!

Best rub I’ve used for brisket .
Great ingredients , flavour and adds a nice colour to the beef .

You can’t go wrong with this trio- all have been staples in my house. I’ve mixed the Apple Butter BBQ sauce with habanero sauce for an extra kick.

I was also amazed at how quickly they arrived to me in Vancouver. We ordered from you directly so you would get the most R.O.I.
