Tanner Hill and his brother David Buenrostro admit that they were a little worried about the future of their grilling business, Grill This BBQ Supply, when the coronavirus pandemic first hit in March. After all, these were difficult times, and purchasing a new grill or the finest rubs and sauces likely wouldn’t be top of mind for many people.
They couldn’t have been more wrong. What was already a popular concept grew beyond their wildest dreams — so much that they moved from the shared facility they’d been in for six years and opened their own storefront in Highland Village.
“The reverse happened,” Tanner said with a laugh. “We’ve been the busiest we’ve ever been.”
Grill This BBQ Supply has always been your one-stop BBQ, grilling, and smoking headquarters, featuring everything from grills and smokers to must-have accessories and locally-made, award-winning rubs and sauces. They also design and build outdoor kitchens. But what was once a smaller facility located within Outdoor Living Pool and Patio near Guyer High School is now its own storefront — and triple the size of what it used to be.
The extra space has opened up a whole new world of possibilities. Not only does Grill This have perhaps the biggest selection of grills and supplies in North Texas, but several new events are in the works to add even more value for their customers. This includes everything from cooking classes to amateur BBQ competitions.
It’s as unique a grilling experience as you will find under one roof.
“We started this as a hobby, and it just grew from there,” Tanner said. He said that he and David are just as much grilling enthusiasts as their clients are. “David loves interacting with our clients and getting to know them. I’m sort of in the background helping to advertise and set up events like cooking classes, amateur BBQ competitions, and more.”
He added, “For those people who have been to our old store, this new one is huge. They should check it out.”
