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!"

The beef rub is savoury perfection. The rib rub is delicious and truly unique, also good to season corn bread/biscuits. The house rub is also amazing so don't miss out on that either!
