House of BBQ Experts is a Montreal, Quebec-based company that offers BBQ products, knowledge, support and more. Max and JP Lavoie, two young visionaries from the Quebec City area, cofounded the company.
Their motto? Changing the world, one barbecue at a time.
They generously shared three recipes with HPBAC to demonstrate how best to use their ingenious, hand-crafted All-In-1 tool.
The All-in-1 merges every type of cooking into one. The door will let you get a real flame over your cheese, melting it to perfection on your pizza, or have a quick look at your ribs on the first shelf of your smoker. Nothing is better than 2 chickens slowly grilled over live fire… with or without the lid. Made from 100% 304 stainless steel, you can use it like a tandoor grill and cook your Naan directly on the inside walls. It’s perfect for churrasco, asado and santa style BBQ.
Servings: 8-12Prep time: 30 minutes
Marinating time: 1 hour
Barbecue Temp: 200°C (400°F)
- 2 whole chickens 1,5kg (3 lbs) each
- 80 g (1 cup) BBQ Quebec Océan Spice Mix
- BBQ Quebec Sweet Lemon Sauce or BBQ Quebec Ketchot Sauce
Preheat the grill using only the back burner. Rub the inside and outside of the chickens with the spices. Skewer the chickens back to back and tightly squeeze them together. Tie the end of the legs using stainless steel pins. Set a drip pan under the chickens. Cook for approximately one hour, until the meat easily comes off the bone. Note for cooking with coals: put the coals under the chickens. Make sure that the rod turns constantly so the chickens do not burn. Ten minutes before the end of cooking, baste the chickens with the preferred sauce
Prep time: 10 minutes
Marinating time: 36 hours
Max smoker temp: 30°C (85°F)
Smoking time: 4-12 hrs
- Maple wood pellets
- 2 fresh salmon fillets with skin 675 g (1-1/2 lb) each
- 4 tbsp maple syrup
- 4 tbsp bourbon
- 300 g (1 cup) coarse salt
- 75 g (1/2 cup) maple sugar
- 110 g (1/2 cup) brown sugar

Put the fillets in a large pyrex plate, skin side down. Prepare the dry rub: mix all ingredients in a bowl. Coat the fillets evenly with the mix. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 24 hours. Remove excess spice rub with your fingers then put the fillets in a resealable large bag. Drizzle with maple syrup and bourbon. Refrigerate for 12 hours. Fill half the smoker box with the pellets. Burn the pellets for 2 minutes before extinguishing the flame. Set the box as far as possible from where the fillets will go. Set the salmon on the grill then quickly close the lid. Cold smoke the salmon for 4 to 12 hours. Let the salmon rest in the refrigerator for 24 hours before. Cut in slices and serve.
