Meet Ross  


After working for Shell Oil in London and for his Uncle's Total Oil & Calor Gas (LPG) Depot in South London, after he reached Director level he decided to emigrate to Australia as the opportunites there seemed very inviting.....

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. Then employing installers, technicians and chefs.

Barbitec formed in 2000 and still handles BBQ warranty work for leading BBQ manufacturers such as GasMate and Barbeques Galore as well as private work. Now more 'workshop' based, all work is carried out in his 'fully equipped' workshop. 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, famously becoming the first WA BBQ Chef to start BBQ Classes back in early 2000, 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, sharing most of his experience on his INSTAGRAM page.

His latest book, 'British & Australian BBQ Secrets' above is now on sale through Amazon and leading book stores both in Australia, the UK and Internationally.

Ross has also set up the 'Barbecue Service Alliance Australia Directory' which has the names of BBQ service businesses all across Australia so if you want a 5 star bbq repair business go to:  and dont forget to add a review!

BBQ and Patio Heater servicing is now carried out in our comprehensive workshop but Ross can also offer advice on what BBQ to buy, whether your old bbq is worth repairing, Alfreso areas compliance issues etc.,

Ross is married, lives in Perth Western Australia, is a fully qualified, licensed gas technician as well as an author and professional Cook.
