Joe Beef BBQ sauce has a smoky, lightly sweet taste. Not too spicy, it strikes a perfect balance between apple, mustard, tomato and molasses flavours.
Preservative-free, it is made exclusively with natural ingredients.
To achieve the perfect marriage of flavours, Joe Beef BBQ sauce is cooked slowly, during at least three hours. Ingredients are selected with care: Quebec apples and tomatoes ripened to perfection, and even liquid smoke to impart that wonderful, authentic BBQ taste. All Joe Beef sauces are produced by hand, in small batches, following the restaurant’s recipe as if they were prepared there. No sauce passes through the warehouse doors without having received Dave and Fred’s seal of approval.
Joe Beef sauces are produced locally in the greater Montreal area.
The artisans behind the product
David McMillan and Fred Morin are long-time friends who, 10 years ago, at a turning point in their careers, decided to do things differently. Having acquired a strong reputation at the Globe restaurant, the two chefs wanted to create a casual space where gourmets would enjoy the best seafood, meats and wines. In short, an unpretentious restaurant that would satisfy the most refined palates.
Try it on your beef or pork ribs.

The story behind Joe Beef products
“We created a line of Joe Beef products based on actual products we have made in our restaurants for years, the dry spices are blends we tinker with in our restaurants and homes and use across our menu. It's kind of the "Joe Beef flavour" of things! The liquid products, again, are extensions of things we make in house: steak sauce, BBQ sauce, hot sauce and so on. We want the products to be used daily in the home, as we do. Nothing strange, just straightforward enhancements to make yours and our cooking easier and more delicious. We know we are not reinventing the wheel here. We make all these products well knowing that not everyone will ever come to our tiny restaurant in Little Burgundy, Montreal, so you can take a little bit of the smallest hardest working restaurant in Canada in your home. It means the world to us.” - Signed Fred and Dave and the whole team at Joe Beef!
