2010 World Champion
BBQ Sauce

We are so proud that the sauce that we've used since the beginning was awarded

First Place Sauce

at the Jack Daniel's Invitational
World Championship BBQ.

Welcome to the online home of RHYTHM 'N QUE !   

Based in Phoenix, Arizona, RHYTHM 'N QUE ventures from the Ninth Ring of Hell into BBQ heaven by beating an eleven-state path to KCBS-sanctioned BBQ contests -- Arizona, Nevada, California, New Mexico, Utah, Colorado, Idaho, Texas, Oklahoma, Arkansas and Tennessee so far.

With nine full seasons of competition now behind us, we've gone up against the big boys and their fancy top-dollar rigs with our backyard equipment and homemade rubs and sauce, and brought home some hardware and great memories.

Browse around, follow some links, learn a little, even email us (but be prepared to hear far more about BBQ than you ever really wanted to know).

Thanks, Dad.
