After a career in London with Shell Oil Ross moved to South London to work for his Uncle at his oil and gas depot primarily managing the LPG GAS division, reaching Director level. A few years later he emigrated to Australia.
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.
Formed in 2000 and handling BBQ work for leading BBQ manufacturers as well as private work. Now more 'workshop' based, as this is a 'less expensive option for his customers,' items can be brought to his 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, 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!
Ross now concentrates his time on alfresco 'on-site' consulting. All BBQ and Patio Heater servicing is now mostly 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 Alfreso areas compliance issues, 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.
