Meet Ross 

After a career in London with Shell UK Oil Ross moved to South London to work for his Uncle at his oil and gas depot primarily managing the LPG CALOR GAS division, reaching Director level after 10 years. Wanting to move his expertise to another new level and to increase his already vast experience in Gas and related products he decided to emigrated to Australia. He found that the BBQ and LPG business in Australia was big but with no proper guidance or direction so far as servicing and maintenance was concerned. So...................

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 was born 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 the business is more 'workshop' based, as this is a 'less expensive option for his customers. 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 and Alfresco 'on-site' consulting. 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, checking on Natural Gas installs and Alfresco areas compliance issues etc; all for a small fee.

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

HI, there is never a good BBQ or a bad BBQ as it depends on what you want and how much you want to spend. Now remember years ago when you went and bought your BBQ?
