BBQ Smoker Hire UK

BBQ smoker hire UK wide coverage whether you are in London, Birmingham, Manchester, Newcastle or Glasgow.

I understand the desire to “do it yourself”, after all it’s the passion for outdoor cooking that inspired me to start this business. Hiring is also a cost effective way to put on an outdoor catering service for your party or community event.

Since I started making commercial standard BBQ smokers for sale here in the UK, many customers have asked me if they can hire from me…and the answer is yes. I offer our big trailer units as a UK wide service and our smaller charcoal grills and hog roast machine hire more locally to us in Lancashire and North Yorkshire.

Cook And Serve Barbecue

These units are great for sausages and burgers en masse.

You can hire these units for the day or weekend:

Trailer BBQ Smoker Hire UK Wide

Wedding, private function or charity event, our equipment is simple to set up, easy to control and virtually unbreakable. We’ll offer guidance too so that your event passes off successfully, cost effectively and most important, hygienically.

Trailer BBQ Smoker

You can use my trailers as BBQ grills, smokers or both and there’s plenty of room whether your planning on doing a hog roast or lots of smaller cuts of meat.

Because I also run a catering business I can also advise or help source the essentials cost effectively right through from napkins, bread rolls, home-made sausages or even the whole pig.

Note that when you hire hog roast equipment from us you get the real deal, a charcoal fired unit that cooks a whole hog in a food chamber mounted on a trailer, not some small spit roast cabinet that serves up dry meat and burnt crackling (OK we are a bit biased).

Trailer is un-braked with greased tow-ball and safety chain. Electrics (tail lights & indicators) are connected using standard 7 pin plug. All doors lock for safety during transit and night security. Front and side storage baskets can be used to store wood, charcoals, gazebo etc. Trailer weight is approximately 1000Kg and can be towed by most by most medium sized cars, vans and trucks.

All prices are based on collection from and return to our HQ in Lancashire. Delivery and collection can be arranged at additional cost.

Commercial Smoker User Guide

Before hiring one of my BBQ smokers I recommend that you read my user guide and understand how to operate the equipment.

BBQ Smoker Hire UK Street Food

You may want to consider my BBQ smoker hire UK service if you're thinking of setting up your own streetfood business. Certainly my experience is the sight of one of my units smoking away at any festival really is a magnet for the crowds.

In my view a successful street-food BBQ business needs four things:-

  1. Quality food
  2. Theatre…people like to see food cooking and our trailer smokers naturally ignite customer interest
  3. Customer rapport – that’s you! 
  4. The right event / pitch – Our trailer BBQ smokers offer event organisers something different from the average burger van and that’s what gets your foot in the door. It’s big, it’s visible and it attracts interest.

I operate our catering business in Lancashire (because that’s where I live) and I find that there are enough events annually in this one county for us to make a living and I still cover only a fraction of the events in this county.

  • School Fetes
  • Farmers Markets
  • Private Functions (Weddings & Corporate Events)
  • Food Festivals
  • Town Shows
  • Country Shows
  • Game and Country Fairs
  • Sports Events

If you are setting up a new business I recommend that you do some searches on the internet and see how many events are available near where you live. Call a few event organisers and gauge their reaction to you rocking up with a true American barbecue smoker. If you believe you have a market opportunity then please, before you contact me or invest any of your money in any equipment, make contact with your local Environmental Health officer. He or she is there to protect the public and help you start your business with the appropriate processes and equipment to ensure that your business operates with that in mind. They will help and advise (not close you down before you even start) so you get it right first time and that will save you an awful lot of heartache and money in the process.

Once you have Environmental Health on board, please contact me. Not only do I have the ability to create something different, I can also work with you and advise on all aspects of your offering eg. Serving tables, Gazebos, sourcing ingredients etc.

I can do cost effective long term BBQ smoker hire UK agreements or two year UK hire purchase agreements

One last tit bit of advice:

Start small. Hire hog roast equipment and do some markets and school fetes. Yes, you’re revenue potential (and therefore profit) will be less but your pitch fees and therefore your risk is small too (pitch fees usually between £10 - £25 per day and payable on the day of the event). This way you get to learn your trade, fine tune your processes and learn what sells.

If you go all out for the big events right from the start you’ll start incurring up front deposits, serious pitch fees (between £150 - £500 for a day) and you’ll need to serve a good volume of butties to cover your costs. If your offering is wrong, your processes aren’t efficient or indeed your pricing is wrong, you’ll lose your shirt.
