LeisureGrow fires up BBQ market with new Hybrid Gas and Charcoal Grillstream System


NEW for 2020 all Grillstream BBQs now come with LeisureGrow’s revolutionary HYBRID SYSTEM. The new system lets users decide whether to cook on gas or charcoal each time they cook by simply lifting the grills and either adding or taking away charcoal from the BBQ. 


Now cooking on a Grillstream with charcoal is just as easy as cooking on gas by using the burners to light the charcoal and then turning them off for that traditional charcoal BBQ taste.

Jody Grimmer, managing director for LeisureGrow Products said; “We think our new Hybrid Grillstream system is just what the BBQ trade and consumer has been waiting for.  Now you don’t have to choose between the convenience of gas or the nostalgia and taste of charcoal – consumers can decide each time how to cook their BBQ depending on how much time they have and what they’re cooking.  We’re really excited to be sharing this at SOLEX.”

To support the New Hybrid System for Grillstream, the LeisureGrow team has made investments in some great POS and marketing tools for Grillstream including videos, shop-in-shop retail solutions, and packaging which is also on display at SOLEX.  And if that’s not enough to whet visitors’ appetites, BBQ aficionado Dr Sweetsmoke will be on the Grillstream stand at the show, cooking up some tasty nibbles and dishing out BBQ tips to customers.



Demonstrations on a Grillstream barbecue by Dr Sweetsmoke proved popular at SOLEX.
