A Canterbury BBQ Revolution!

Since we established BBQs Direct in 2010 we've watched as Cantabrians passion and growing preference for "smokey" BBQ, returning to charcoal, wood and pellet grills, has grown over the years from what we'd described as a Renaissance to what we see now is a full blown Revolution! BBQ is evolving from what has been traditionally casual social occasions at home over the summer months to a mad keen - and competitive - year round passtime .

We take every opportunity to enthusiastically host, encourage, support, sponsor and promote various BBQ Competitions and Teams, Expos and Events in our region... and beyond.

Canterbury BBQ Pitmasters Facebook Group: after the inaugural Meatstock BBQ Festival held in Auckland in 2017 and following a casual conversation between some motivated enthusiasts here at BBQs Direct, the Canterbury BBQ Pitmasters Facebook Group was set up. Now numbering more than 3000 members the Facebook Page is a valuable forum for the exchange of BBQ advice and information.




The house that helps to chase the clouds away

BBQs Direct proudly supports our nominated charity: Ronald McDonald House, South Island. Ronald McDonald House helps South Island families - while their children receive hospital care in Christchurch

Families are better when they are together. Many families coping with a seriously ill child and trying to meet the demands of other family members also have to deal with the difficulties of staying in an unfamiliar city - it can be overwhelming.

That's where Ronald McDonald House helps. By providing a 'home away from home ' in a positive and supportive environment, families can concentrate on their child's recovery without having to worry about the practical day-to-day tasks.

SAMOS, LYTTELTON - The Lyttelton Coffee Company was twice left homeless, following the September '10 and February '11 Christchurch earthquakes. They set up temporary premises in a "shed" around the corner in Canterbury Street, where we installed a Fiamma Wood Fire Garden Oven to enable them to cook tasty pizza & meats and to offer a cosy wood fire atmosphere at the new cafe.

HALSWELL UNITED AFC From humble beginnings over 50 years ago, the Halswell United Football Club now has players from 4 years old to 70 years old, men and women, boys and girls - all enjoying the game and community of football. The club has a huge appetite for fundraising and the weekly sausage sizzle is both an important income and a popular meeting point for players and families, gathering around the Caterer 6 BBQ that we happily supplied to the club.

CASHMERE HIGH SCHOOL BASKETBALL - Cashmere high school basketball teams achieve tremendous success in local competitions and also at regional and national level. We support on the sideline and we have supplied our boys teams with gear bags to assist them in their travels to competition games and tournaments.

DIRT FLIRT RACING when Kimberley Yeatman is not busy at her day job, you will find her unleashing her inner speed demon on the race track. We have a lot of fun supporting Kimberley and following the success of her Dirt Flirt Racing Team.


DECK SMOKERS BBQ - When we first introduced GMG Pellet Grills to our BBQ range several years ago, Lionel Bridger was the first to purchase a Daniel Boone Grill from us! Lionel's grilling prowess has developed spectacularly and exceeded even his wife's expectations, we really enjoy his infectious enthusiasm for wood fire BBQ!

It's our pleasure to support Lionel and his Deck Smokers BBQ team competing at various BBQ Competitions.
