Our BBQ Story

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

…to simmer peeled apples, adding molasses, honey, spices and plenty of creativity and a lot tasting!  Then we decided to try it at our very first BBQ competition back in 2005.  It was a good decision to use that home-made Apple Butter BBQ Sauce, because…

"It just tastes so good!"

House of Q has consistently earned awards, and the accolades continue to pour in. BBQ Brian Misko, the master behind our sauces and spices and the House of Q Pitmaster, has amassed an impressive collection!

House of Q BBQ Sauces and Spices are proudly available in retailers across Canada, USA, and beyond, and our flavors are winning over grillers everywhere so they 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 a new logo and then we updated all of the product labels on the jars.  Check out the new look!

Is That a New Sauce??

Exciting News for 2024! Our fans demanded it, and we delivered. The spicier version is back and better than ever…

"Rock'n Red 2.0"
has arrived!

YES! "2.0" is Now Available!

This is one of my 2 favorites from House of Q, love how your BBQ sauces cover and stick to the meat. I ordered it and it arrived in a few days. I will definately be ordering again.
