We specialise in the following information:

A full and comprehensive website that gives total information:

  • How to look after it.
  • How to cook on it.
  • How to obtain spare parts for it.


And offer the following services:

  • The Barbitec ‘bring it to us’ workshop service from $99.00 plus GST
  • We no longer carry out on-site servicing, but 'we may know someone that can!**
  • We give advise on Cooking and food preparation, i.e. what cooks best on a BBQ.
  • ** If you require an on-site BBQ technician go to for a 5 Star service that you will always remember! This service is 'AUSTRALIA-WIDE' so if you are another State altogether there is someone that can help you..

Meet Ross 

After a career in London with Shell UK Oil Ross moved to South London to work for his Uncle at his TOTAL oil and gas depot, primarily managing the LPG CALOR GAS division, having reached Director level after 10 years, he felt he wanted more and so to move his expertise to another new level (and to increase his already vast experience in Gas and related products) he made a descison to emigrate to Australia, a big decision but one that he found easy to make.............

The BBQ and LPG business in Australia is huge but with no proper guidance or direction so far as servicing and maintenance is concerned he decided that it might be an idea to set up a BBQ servicing business...................

After a barbeque party at his home, he thought to himself, 'who assembles and maintains barbeques in Perth?'............Visiting the local barbeque store the following day, his barbeque business was born........

Barbitec evolved in 2000, handling BBQ installation and service work in WA for leading BBQ manufacturers in Australia. As more private work ensued he employed, Installers, technicians and chefs to enhance and grow his business.

Now that the business is more 'workshop' based, this is a 'less expensive option for customers for servicing BBQ realated products. 

Items can be brought to his workshop for repair and if the item is unrepairable no charges are made, so if it cant be fixed... its free!

His interest in cooking, in particular BBQ cooking led to two years of recipe collaboration with professional chefs in Western Australia, culminating in writing his BBQ cookery book "Drongo's Guide to BBQ Mastery". He still offers guidance to the 'would-be' BBQ cooks out there for free, however for an evening of BBQ hands-on bliss, he will charge (Approx $70.00 per hour plus GST Perth area only, ply him with wine and food and this does get cheaper!).

Ross now concentrates his time on Workshop maintenance. BBQ and Patio Heater servicing is now carried out in our comprehensive workshop but Ross can offer advice on what BBQ to buy, whether your old bbq is worth repairing, compliance issues etc; 

Ross is married, lives in Perth Western Australia, is a fully qualified, licensed gas technician as well as an author and BBQ Chef. His expert advice over the phone is free so why not call him on 0415.771172?
