Quality, Innovation, Family
It was 13 years ago that we bought a small and struggling bbq manufacturing business. We had a little experience in managing a start-up business but no manufacturing training and very little money, but what we DID have was the passion to make it a success. Forty plus years since its inception and the business is as strong as ever and the word is spreading about how incredibly good our BBQs are.
We want to take this opportunity to thank you for joining us on this amazing journey. It is with gratitude that we have watched our small Australian business grow and it is all because of you, our loyal customers, together with our suppliers and employees that we continue to go from strength to strength.
In 2018, Heatlie remain true to our commitment to manufacturing the best quality, Australian Made products. Innovation is foremost in our product and business development. Our 15 trusted employees are a committed team that are the lifeblood of our small family business. As we build our business and look to the future, we are welcoming the contribution of the next generation of our immediate family and we are looking forward to supplying world class products to our valued customers.

Think barbecue and most of us will expect meat to be on the menu.

When my husband and I first bought Heatlie Barbecues a colleague told us that a typical customer started barbecuing on a round, three-legged portable gas barbecue like everyone had in the 1970s and 80s. Then, when they wanted something more substantial and impressive, they graduated to an outdoor kitchen-type unit, complete with five-burners, half grill, […]

Just a quick email to say many, many thanx for producing a superb outdoor cook-top - "bbq" is too less a word for your new stunning ISLAND GOURMET! We are in the process of finishing our outdoor kitchen and I have been totally flummoxed looking for a cook top that is stylish and affordable. Thanx again for being design conscious.
I cannot thank you enough. I don't know what you did but, "WOW!!!!!", both grills are just awesome. I could not be happier with the outcome. I struggle to find a cold spot on the grills...anywhere. Your understanding, professionalism and level of service remains beyond any expectations I had.
I have been reselling Heatlie products for nearly 20 years. I can count on one hand the number of problems we have had during this time. Their service is second to none and reliability almost perfect. They are a pleasure to deal with and their products exemplary.
Let me tell you I could not wait to use my new bbq. And let me tell you I may look like less but its more.I fit more on it its easy and rugged to use, I am just kicking myself for not buying one sooner! My old BBQ which was 1 year old and cost me over $2000 burnt everything, had flare ups was un-cleanable. I am really thankful I followed your advice and even though this is only day one the results already speak for themselves.
We at Barbeques Galore have been selling Heatlie BBQs for a good number of years and we have found that they a good quality locally build unit. With the number of options available you can purchase a top quality flat plate bbq that really suits your needs and you can enjoy the benefits for many years to come.
