WHO WE ARE

BBQ Adelaide began in late 2020. The founder Troy Barnes has had a long love of quality bbq since a young age. Barnesy won his first Weber Q in a raffle in 2012 and developed a passion for quality barbecue ever since.

BBQ Adelaide is about creating quality products and educating everyone about how to make a perfect steak, every time. With our in-store demonstrations daily and fun cooking classes, we aim to share our passion and cooking skills with the broader community.
