I started selling these BBQ's at the start of June 2020. One of my suppliers is importing them and he said: "everybody's stuck at home on lockdown and these are going well, you should add them to your website". So I did. To be honest, partly so I could then justify getting one for myself at home, for "testing purposes". Well, they have sold rather well to be honest and we have had trouble keeping up (especially as the Portuguese supplier decided to move all the shipping dates back a couple of weeks at one point).
I have a confession to make... until a couple of days ago I hadn't even seen one. That's a bit embarrassing but, to be honest, I thought we might just get a sale or two and I would have time to get one up and running for testing. At least mine arrived with the first batch of 50 anyway... the rest of you are probably right now in your gardens, scratching your heads over your crate or arguing with the other half about whose fault it was one of you trapped your fingers trying to get a slab of granite out. I did actually ring one guy who left a message yesterday and he said "too late mate it's all built, looks proper smart". The quality is actually very good. Not quite sure what I was expecting but I certainly did not expect everything to be so heavy. This is all proper heavyweight stone and granite pieces. My pallet weighed between 300 and 400 kilos. Many of the bits are a two-person carry. My wife said "the pictures do not do these justice, they are beautiful". Happy wife, happy life (there will be emails).
So I better get it built then...
Note: Please also follow the "official instructions", PDF file above somewhere. My choice included the side stand so you may have less bits in your crate ;-)
