Que Fresco BBQ's & Smokers

Que Fresco BBQ's and Smokers offer a different way to barbecue. All our barbecues and brands adhere to our core values of quality, longevity and sustainability.

Que Fresco is the UK and Ireland distributor for a select range of quality barbecue brands. Additionally Que Fresco hand builds BBQ grills and smokers.

About Us

Established in 2013 Que Fresco is a family business whose mission is simply to provide the best in barbecue, enjoy barbecue cooking and not to destroy the planet. For all our products:

  • Construction quality is paramount
  • Cooking capability is of the highest standard
  • We don't do cheap crap

Que Fresco works in a different way by producing and selling barbecues and smokers that are built to last. Our range of wood chips is EU sourced, produced sustainably and solar dried (compostible packaging is coming very soon!).

If we're going to use the worlds resourses then the last thing we need is for those precious raw materials to be returned to the Earth a few years later as rubbish.

We refuse to accept corporate mass production and the continuous drive to make things cheaper. We do it in a different way by making the very best in bespoke barbecues and sourcing from innovators and enthusiasts around the world.

  • It's about quality of materials we use
  • It's about lifetime manufacturing techniques
  • It's about the environmental sustainability of our business

Whether you buy a Que Fresco product or one of the quality brands we represent, you'll always find that your equipment delivers superb cooking results and our consumables are not contributing to de-forestation or the destruction of natural habitats.

That said there is clearly an environmental cost to running our business. We monitor this on a regular basis and donate to Rewilding Britain to ensure that our business is in balance with the environment.

How To Use This Site

This site is here to support you the consumer, our retail partners and our independent barbecue manufacturers.  

For The Consumer

We catalogue all the barbecue products either made by Que Fresco or distributed by Que Fresco and will take you into the detailed specification of every product. This catalogue is here to support the work done by our specialist retailers who stock and serve you at the local level. At the bottom of each product page we will provide links to the retailer network in the UK & Republic Of Ireland.

A select number of our products are more specialist and exclusive in nature (expensive) so these products can be purchased directly from us or through a network of specialist retailers.

Finally this website also describes examples of the bespoke products hand made by Que Fresco here in the UK. Please call us to discuss your barbecue dream and we'll do our level best to convert your dream into reality!

Meet The Team

He's also passionate about working in balance with the environment to provide a sustainable future for his children. Given sunshine and time, Paul would be cooking outdoors morning, noon and night, but Paul is also responsible for the marketing of the brands and retailer support.
