I’ve always loved BBQ, it’s not just about the food but also the social element bringing people together. Our business started over 30 years ago as a gas cylinder distribution business. The majority of the trade was Winter based so we needed a reverse season product range and the BBQ Shop was born. Lockdown literally changed the game bring us in touch with so many like minded people through Social media and I took the decision to put more focus on growing the product range . With help and support we’ve added a part time BBQ cooking school, we run weekly demos at weekends and even launch a BBQ last Sept. We’ve had such amazing support and help from across the community to make this all happen. I really couldn’t have done it without this. We have lots more exciting ideas and I didn’t even mention our pilgrimage to Texas last Jan! So much to talk about including my American Grandfather who inspired me at an early age!
