Our job is to make it simple to grill the best steaks, fish, chicken, veggies and even fruit you've ever tasted. We display the over 20 lines of outdoor gas grills and BBQ smokers. In addition we offer barbecue islands, outdoor fireplaces, fire pits, patio heaters and more. We have all the tools to make grilling fun and easy.
The BBQ Grill Outlet is owned and operated by Jay A. Contreras and Gary M. Smith. Jay and Gary met as executives while they ran different divisions of an international apartment company. During their tenure, it was one of the ten largest apartment companies in the country. Their corporate experience provided a great foundation to transition to "small business" ownership.
For the second half of their careers, Jay and Gary searched for an opportunity with two things in mind: (1) they wanted to be involved in a product they were passionate about and (2) something that involved minimal travel. Their search lead them to the BBQ industry in 2004. The BBQ Grill Outlet was incorporated in the fall of 2004, and they have been selling and servicing BBQ equipment and BBQ islands ever since.
The BBQ Grill Outlet is now the leading provider of BBQ grills, new and remodeled BBQ islands, outdoor fireplaces and fire pits, BBQ smokers, gas logs, fire glass and patio heaters in Southern California.
Both business partners work the stores and are involved in the day-to-day affairs of the business-- including weekends. The BBQ Grill Outlet reflects the fact that it’s locally operated by "hands on" ownership, who live in the communities they serve. Each member of the staff, from the designers inside the stores to the field installers; enjoy what they do and make an honest effort to provide excellent service. The BBQ Grill Outlet’s staff welcomes the opportunity to earn your business.
"Thank you Orange County, San Diego County and Los Angeles County for making us the largest locally owned and operated provider of BBQ Grills and Outdoor Islands in Southern California."
