   From our family to yours . . . we carry a tradition and very important part of our heritage by presenting Mr Brown's Barbecue sauce. In 1953, Rufus "Daddy Buddy" Brown said to his kids, "I bet if I tried I could come up with a better BBQ sauce." His children said, "Why don't you try Daddy!" The result is history. Today almost 70 years later the 4th and 5th generations of family are here to share Mr Browns Bar-B-Que sauce with the world. Our commitment to the recipe and the legacy of Mr Browns Bar-B-Que  comes through in this  highly reviewedcomplex blend of spicy, sweet, smoky goodness. Enjoy--Thomas G. Brown 2nd Generation and Tyler W. Castle 3rd generation. 

Great day at the Inagural ilani BBQ Fest competition. Mr Brown's BBQ teamed with the soon to be open in Hazeldell Washington Wheelhouse Taproom. We took 1st place with our Salmon and 2nd place with our Beef Ribs. Mr Brown's BBQ came in 2nd place overall only missing 1st place by .25 of a point against some very great competitors.

"Tom Brown is known around town as the rib man. Look for his signature baby back ribs and his wonderfully incendiary Lemon Honey Pepper sauce.”

Lisa Shara Hall The Oregonian


“This is the Bar-B-Que joint of your dreams. The pork ribs are meaty, not fatty. The chicken is expertly grilled and amazingly moist.”

“Is Lemon Honey Pepper a real Bar-B-Que sauce? You will be eating too fast to think about it.”

David Sarasohn The Oregonian

“For authentic Bar-B-Que head to Mr. Browns. Mr. Brown aced the test of people raised in Texas and the deep south. Portland has no finer establishment.”
