Our History
  • In 1998, Mike and Ladina Hackley opened a brick and mortar store called The Grill Store & More in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. Within two years, the business expanded to locations in Baton Rouge and New Orleans. Mike and Ladina quickly recognized the endless possibilities presented by the emerging world of online shopping. BBQGuys was launched in 2000 and has become one of America's leading websites for outdoor cooking products. As BBQGuys expanded beyond grills and cooking products, our focus turned to becoming an e-commerce destination for all backyard living products. In 2019, sister sites UltimatePatio and GasLogGuys moved to a new home at BBQGuys. Now our customers can find all their favorite outdoor kitchen furnishings in one place – creating a seamless shopping experience.
