This Saturday I’ll be talking with BBQ Brian Misko about his new book “Grilling with House of Q – Inspired Recipes for Backyard Barbecues.”
If you love the taste of barbecue but worry about cooking the perfect steak or if you’re a whiz with burgers but want to grill other foods or if you harbor aspirations of presenting your own smoked brisket to a panel of trained judges, then this book is for you. BBQ Brian has spent more than a decade smoking and grilling foods, competing against other pit masters and learning from some of the best in the business. And not only does he regularly win awards for his barbecue and House of Q BBQ sauces, but he’s now one of the most sought-after teachers around. Why? Because he tells a great story, makes learning fun and easy and freely shares his recipes and his love of good food. Grilling with House of Q is part handsome cookbook, part instruction manual and part story collection. The result is that rare volume that entertains and becomes your go-to for delicious, no-fail smoked ribs, shrimp tacos, pulled pork and pit beans—or burritos, mac ’n’ cheese and baklava—all prepared on your grill and all eagerly anticipated by friends, backyard neighbors and barbecue judges.

About Brian: After many years in sales and marketing, Brian’s passion for cooking has been planted, watered and grown to be very fruitful. In the kitchen, Brian’s energy has allowed him to share with many friends, family and catering clients a variety of cuisines. His collection of favourite cuisines include pasta, seafood, sushi and appetizers with everything from Cajun, Brazilian, regional American and German influences. Even though there are these influences, his passion can really be shown when he is using charcoal or a gas grill.
Brian created a competition barbeque team called House of Q and since the first contest they attended in 2005, they have accumulated a number of bbq awards both in Canada and the USA. The team has also been invited to attend some of the top competitions in the “home-land” of bbq, the deep south of USA.
Brian’s culinary work includes the BBQ Tip of the Week on Global TV BC, newspaper articles and has been published in cookbooks as well. At Well Seasoned Brian teaches during the summer the grilling and bbq classes while his indoor classes cover a number of topics including Cajun, beef or fish.
