Hi John,

I purchased a 5 burner BBQ about 5 yrs ago. I was a Cast Iron BBQ boy since the 80s . Changing to Stainless Steel is the best thing I ever did. The cooking is consistent & there is no transition of flavours from the previous meal. BBQ is extremely well built & highest quality. Now taking it to the next house.

Thank you guys!


Hi John,

Thank you for your help today with organizing new heat deflectors for my Lifestyle BBQ. I purchased my BBQ in 2002. At the time, I thought I paid a lot of money for it but I was impressed with the build quality compared to the other brands available and the Lifestyle BBQ was Australian made. When going onto the Lifestyle Website today, I was delighted to see that my 16 year old BBQ looked the same as the current models. I believe this shows what a great product

I bought back then and the price I paid back in 2002 now seems very reasonable. I use my BBQ at least two to three times a week and this is the first time I have had to do anything but clean it. I understand the heat deflectors cannot last forever but 16 years is great.

Thankyou once again for your help John and I look forward to receiving the new deflectors in the next few days.

Best regards

Hi John

  • After 12 years on our rooftop entertaining area at Nelson Bay the outdoor kitchen looks as good as when it was installed.
  • Difference in paying slightly more for quality, is the condition so many years later that is seen.
  • Exposed to the elements for so many years.

Dear John + Blair & Lifestyle Team,

What a fantastic job you have done with the BBQ. Everything is just perfect. Appreciate the professional service from start to finish. I will definitely be back for accessories to accompany this awesome BBQ.

Many Thanks

We have a 4 burner Lifestyle BBQ on our houseboat which is used for hire purposes so the BBQ gets a lot of work and has to cope with many different weather conditions and hirers. The BBQ was fitted on Liquid Gold in 2004 and to this day, is still fantastic in both appearance and the way it performs. I only wish my BBQ at home worked as well as this one! What is also excellent about owning a lifestyle BBQ is the availability of parts and the service, the spare parts personnel offer! I have only had to buy the occasional spare part over the years but have never had an issue with replacements or the back up service! Thank you Lifestyle for making an excellent BBQ.

Hi John

Just a quick note to thank you for your help last Saturday. I’ve attached a few photos of my 17 year old UltraQ. I gave it a polish and clean up the other day and looks like new again. Shows the advantage of buying quality first time around. Thanks again.

Hi John.

I must say I am very happy with the finished result of the bbq set up we purchased from you.I can clearly see where the money went in the quality and care taken to manufacture and instal the finished product.Your installing team were equally of high calibre and extended every courtesy and showed extreme care in installing the product professionally and create a finished bbq set up that in my opinion is second to none. Very satisfied customer.

Hello John,

I was just clearing out some emails when I was reminded that I had intended to let you know what wonderful service Simon and I received from all of you at Lifestyle BBQs. It was an absolute pleasure to buy from you and we will most certainly be recommending you to our friends. The guy that delivered the BBQ (I am sorry, I can’t remember his name) was also most helpful and kind.

The BBQ has been used a fair amount since our purchase and we are loving it.

Merry Christmas to you and your lovely staff!

I just wanted to write and thank you for our new outdoor kitchen. It looks absolutely fantastic and certainly provides the wow factor for our new deck. You can forget looking at the view everyone now heads straight for the barbeque! It has been a pleasure dealing with Lifestyle Barbeques – every person we dealt with has been polite, courteous and most importantly, knowledgeable about your products and able to give us good advice. There was never any pressure for us to place an order – but once we did the process was smooth and well organised. The installers were friendly and respectful of our home – they arrived with a smile and left everything clean and tidy when they finished. We also loved the fact that we were dealing with an Australian company selling quality Australian products which are built for Australian conditions. We looked at a lot of cheap imported barbeques before we decided on Lifestyle Barbeques – but once we saw your product there was really never any other option. We look that we will have many years of enjoyment with our new barbeque – it is everything we could have hoped for and more! It has been a pleasure working with the entire team at Lifestyle Barbeques and we would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending you in the future.

“I recently became a proud owner of a Lifestyle 4 burner free standing BBQ. If you want a cheap BBQ that will rust away in a few years this may not be for you. However if you are a discerning customer who looks for good quality and value for money then these are definitely for you.

I say that not just because it cooks really well without hot spots but in particular for two reasons. Firstly it is all Australian made, yes made, not just assembled here in Aus. I was unable to find any other BBQ that is.

The quality is superb. Yes there is stainless and stainless. This is top quality stainless. Even the bolts and nuts are stainless.

Add to that a 25year warranty that is 25years not ‘lifetime’ which doesn’t mean much.”

I just wanted to drop you a line to let you know how rapt we are with the new Outdoor Kitchen. I’m really glad now that we decided to go for a quality Australian Made product. Sol and Steve who carried out the installation were great and had heaps of useful tips about barbequing as well.

Of all of the fittings and appliances that we selected for the new house our Lifestyle Outdoor kitchen really stands out as something that exceeded our expectations.

The BBQ is great and we are very happy with the purchase.

Thanking you,

The new BBQ is now installed. It cooks beautifully and there will be no more burnt offerings at our house. We’ve cooked beer roast chicken, pizza, kebabs, koftas, thick cut steaks and roast potatoes so far – using indirect and direct cooking techniques. All have been successful. The ss plate makes lovely slow cooked caramelised onions and easy bacon and eggs. The Christmas turkey is lined up for roasting outdoors next week.

We find the plate and grills easy to clean with a bit of detergent/warm water and nylon scourer and the cover keeps everything spick and span between sessions.

Thanks for all your tips on using our new BBQ.

Please find enclosed our warranty registration.

It was most exciting to go home yesterday and find our beautiful new BBQ on the deck. It looks fantastic and of course we fired her up last night and cooked perfect steak! Thank you, it’s awesome. We look forward to many BBQ meals over the holidays with family and friends.

Thanks again and happy Xmas to you and all of the staff.

Just a short note to say Thankyou. Our BBQ is now complete and is a delight to use. I am very happy with my Lifestyle BBQ, which recommends itself to all. It is great to have an Australian company with not only an excellent product but integrity too. Thankyou for your efforts to make sure we were completely satisfied with our purchase.

Kind regards,

After many frustrating years with expensive BBQ’s not meeting my expectations, I was referred to Lifestyle Barbeques in early 2007. The sales experience was a pleasure, no hard sell and a willingness to time, listen and make sensible suggestions based on a sound knowledge of the product. I ultimately purchased a 5 burner Lifestyle International Barbeque because I entertain at home and cook for large groups. The variable combinations of plates and grill, solid stainless steel construction and ease of use appeared to suit my needs. After using the BBQ extensively for over 2 years I am really happy with my choice. The combination plates and grill cook evenly whether it be meat, seafood or roasts and the BBQ has met and exceeded all my expectations. The after sales experience has also been exceptional and I can see myself still using this stainless steel BBQ well after expiry of the 25 year warranty. I would be happy to recommend Lifestyle BBQ’s to any prospective purchaser.

Just a short email to let everyone know at Lifestyle BBQs how impressed I am with the quality, workmanship and attention to detail in my bbq. I am pleased that I didn’t go for a cheap import that would only end up as land fill in a few short years.


I just wanted to let you know that our Outdoor Kitchen is now installed and it looks fantastic. I had some friends over for dinner on Saturday night. I cooked a Pork Neck and a Chicken on the BBQ as well as an aluminium tray full of Potatoes cut into quarters, with a bit of olive oil and a lot of honey poured over them and covered with foil. I now have a problem, as they want to have all their parties here now! I have never cooked on stainless steel before, I wouldn’t go back as it is so much cleaner. I must say that you have created a brilliant product to cook on, can’t wait for summer.

I should mention that the owners (and myself) are very happy with the BBQ and your service. For an absolute beachfront BBQ the Lifestyle range certainly outlasts all the others up here!

Many thanks,

It is not often that one has a great experience in buying spare parts for a barbeque. The advice given and savings made were huge.

Some 8 years ago I purchased a Lifestyle BBQ and recently found some of the perforated plates were starting to burn through and needed to be replaced.

At a cost of a few hundred dollars the BBQ is now as good as when I purchased it. (had it been any other brand I am sure that I would have had to replace it

I have been barbequing in excess of 40 years at least once or twice a week. Never have I had such confidence in letting the barby do its own thing (to a point).

Having owned many brands of BBQ’s this is the one that stands out and improved my Lifestyle I have no hesitation in recommending Lifestyle Barbeques to anyone, from novice to expert.

Thankyou sooooo much for all of your help. Our BBQ is perfect again! I am hopeless with names but they guy you sent here today was really great and did everything he could to fix my problems. Nothing was too much trouble for him. Stuart has also been fantastic, always calling back when he says he will and just so understanding. I am so pleased that I have dealt with such a great company! You have great customer service and will be recommending you to anyone who is looking for a BBQ.

If you could please pass on my thanks and appreciation to everyone involved that would be great. I am so looking forward to when my husband gets home from his deployment in Afganistan and seeing his face when he sees the BBQ. I will let you know his reaction as he does not know I ordered from you and I have led him to believe I got him a cheapie from KMART!!!

Thank you again.


Dear Blair

Yes, as I have indicated to you I live by the sea and as such have had problems with BBQs in the past. Typically the stainless steel discolours and the cast iron grill rusts. I purchased the Lifestyle BBQ in the hope that I could keep it for a number of years in good working order unlike the others. While the Lifestyle BBQ was more expensive than my prior BBQs I am more than happy with the results. The hood has also greatly assisted me during times whereby the sea breeze was at its strongest. I would recommend the product and the after sales service.

Dear John

Just writing to let you know that our Lifestyle outdoor kitchen exceeds expectations. We have cooked many a marvellous meal for family and friends. All of our Christmas feast was cooked outdoors. Breakfast is a breeze and cooking has become such a joy. I am so glad I found you on the internet!

With kind regards, Yours sincerely


Dear John

Thank you so much for the prompt and professional service offered by you and your team. It is truly a rare occurrence when a schedule goes according to plan. This has been a positive experience for both Robert and I. Our outdoor kitchen is extremely handsome and has enhanced our backyard/garden one hundred percent. We are going to give it a test run on the weekend. Compliments to the two chaps who delivered and installed the item yesterday. They arrived early, they were well mannered and went about their business in a very professional manner. At a later date, I would be interested in a cover because of the weather.

With kind regards


The outdoor kitchen has arrived!! Thanks so much for the great work getting it here in time for the birthday. Im sure we will have many years of happy cooking on it.

Dear John,

Just want to say how fantastic our new BBQ looks and thanks to you. Not only will we enjoy this but the holiday guests will be equally privileged. I stumbled across Lifestyle barbeques from the internet and from that moment I called to make an enquiry, the customer service you provided and bespoke options for BBQ lovers was A1. It’s been a pleasure to work with you and your team.


Your product is so awesome, with commercial grade stainless steel, just what we need on the waterfront. It’s built to last! Cooking is a pleasure and having the fridge and sink to hand, we have a full outdoor kitchen overlooking calm waters of picturesque St Georges Basin.Once again thank you and no regrets with our investment.

Owners “Pelican View”


I would like to take this opportunity to thank Lifestyle BBQ’s for the outdoor kitchen and BBQ’s. The entire units not only looks absolutely amazing but also cooks perfectly. The fact that it is made in Australia with quality Australian products reflects the finished product. When you look and feel the quality of the materials used you can appreciate the value for money compared to others. Our choice of having a 3 burner BBQ and a 5 Burner BBQ has worked beautifully, the 3 burner has all grill for delicious Ribs and Rumps and the 5 burner has majority plate to accommodate all the BBQ vegetables, and then we also included a charcoal BBQ to accommodate my famous Portuguese “Espetada” which is cooked over hot coals.

The service throughout the entire process was faultless, from initial inspection at your show room, which was spotless and very informative with a large variety of different options on display, the quotation supplied explaining every detail, the 3D drawings supplied, the time frame to make the entire units was as anticipated, the installation process at our premises was unbelievable with the crew installing the units taking additional care as if it was their own. It’s been installed just on a week now and we’ve had BBQ’s on Saturday and Sunday with family and friends (about 50 guests) and there comment was WOW where did you get this BBQ from, and the conversation throughout the evening was about Lifestyle BBQ’s.

Once again, Thank You for the entire experience, absolutely outstanding in service and products. We have, will and continue to promote Lifestyle BBQ’s for their quality in every aspect from start to finish and beyond.


Tony and Leonie Noronha

Hi Blair,

I have started using the BBQ and I’m very happy with the quality and workmanship that went into building the product. I’m glad I went with your company and designed something that was exactly what I needed for the small space I had to fill.



Hi John

Just a quick note to let you know our new Lifestyle BBQ arrived on Tuesday & we have used it twice so far.

This was a 60th birthday gift for my partner, Mike & he is delighted with the quality of the BBQ & attachments as well the flavour of the food we have tried so far.

Thank you for the wonderful service and efficient dispatch of our BBQ.

Have a great Australia Day weekend.

Kind Regards


I purchased my Lifestyle 4 burner Barbecue over 10 years ago. At the time it was considerably better value versus similar premium quality stainless Barbecues. Since that time I have had immense pleasure every time I have used it knowing that has remained in an almost new condition and that it has been as reliable as the first day I bought it.

The bbq is also very well designed being very functional to use. Additionally the after sales service I have received has been exceptional.
