Meet Our Team

It's like we've always said: being a BBQGuy is as simple as believing in great friends, awesome food, and a whole lot of fun (preferably near a grill, but we don't nitpick). Whether you're new to our grilling lifestyle or one of our loyal customers over the decades, we're all about inclusion. Grab a bottle and pull up a seat! There's always room at our table for more. But if you want to become a bona fide BBQGuy, why don't we break the ice by getting to know each other (don't worry - we'll take the lead)? From our senior leadership to our outdoor living and grilling experts, here are some of the friendly faces on the other side of this premium grilling experience.
