General Manager

Rhiannon Peterson

 

I'm Rhiannon and as well as to being one of the founders of BBQ Spit Rotisseries, I have been the general manager since the business started back in 2006. In addition to overseeing that our customers are happy, I liaise with our suppliers, manage the finances, manage all our internal systems and processes, do lots of product testing and of course keep our amazing team of men in line! 

I love cooking outside over charcoal and actually can’t remember the last time I cooked a meal inside my kitchen. I particularly enjoy cooking gyros on the Cyprus or Mini Spits as they’re easy to use on an almost daily basis. I also love smoked chicken wings cooked in the ProQ and also quite often throw a brisket in the Flaming Coals Gravity Feed Smoker before going to bed leaving it to cook overnight and be ready for lunch the following day

I am very fortunate to love my work, to the point where I am somewhat of a work addict. If you happen to have a burning question that needs answering after-hours or on weekends, don’t be surprised if I answer your call or reply to your email while I’m out walking my beloved German Shorthaired Pointer "Donna" in the park.

 

 

 

 

Product Designer & Technician

Tony Teboneras

My name is Tony and I am one of the founders and head product designer. Growing up, my parents owned a Greek restaurant so I grew up cooking whole lambs on the spit and grilling over charcoal. Back then, most spit roasters were made by the person using it from old drums for the base and windscreen wiper motors for the rotisserie. It wasn’t until years later when I wanted to buy my own spit roaster that I realised there weren’t any commercially manufactured spit roasters that were any good so I decided to make my own. 13 years later, I am proud that we have become the largest manufacturer of spit roasters in Australia and around 5 years ago, expanded our range to include meat smokers. The team has grown steadily from a part-time 2 person business to now having 10 full-time staff, 2 physical stores, multiple warehouses and our own offshore manufacturing plant that manufactures only for us. This gives us 100% control of the product development and quality assurance process, something that not too many Australian companies can boast that's for sure.

As well as designing new products and improve our existing products, I oversee our manufacturing team. Like most men, I believe a meal isn't a meal unless it has a large piece of meat on it so I'm always grilling something up for lunch and dinner. I enjoy being outdoors 4-wheel driving, hunting and camping and never go anywhere outdoors without a portable charcoal BBQ.

 

 

 

 

Executive Assistant To The General Manager

Kem Marimon

My name is Kem and I have been working at BBQ Spit Rotisseries since mid-2015. My main job is to help Rhiannon with all the day to day administrative tasks such as bookkeeping, preparing reports, systemising and arranging customs clearance for containers arriving every couple of weeks. I also manage technical website updates and project manage all our events, promotions and new product releases and pretty much whatever random tasks Rhiannon throws at me (trust me, there are a lot!).

I am really proud to work for a company like BSR where we all jump in and do whatever we can to help each other and our customers. Everyone from the top down is approachable and willing to help out with whatever is needed.

Of course, coming from a Filipino background, my favourite style of food is Lechon. Lechon is the most popular speciality pork dish among Filipinos. Lechon is originally from a Spanish term that means “suckling pig”. Other than pork, Filipinos applied the Lechon roasting style to chicken (called “Lechon Manok”; “Manok” means Chicken) and other meats. On the weekend I enjoy watching tv variety shows, spending time with the family and of course, eat.

 

 

 

 

Online Marketing Manager & Team Leader

Mat Holbrook

Hi, I’m Mat. I oversee our online activity, make sure the team has everything they need to function well and (like everyone else at BBQ Spit Rotisseries) pitch in to do anything else that needs doing for the business to run smoothly. I have been involved in the BBQ industry for over five years now - it’s great to be a part of something that people are passionate about and that gives so much enjoyment to our customers.

I enjoy BBQing with family and friends and especially like cooking with charcoal. My favourite BBQ meal is beef short ribs – usually with a pepper rub. If we’re going out to eat my restaurant of choice is almost always American BBQ.

Away from work I love spending time with my family at sports, movies and dinners as well just enjoying downtime at home.

 

 

 

 

 

Procurement, Fulfilment & Warehousing Manager

Russ McDougall

 

 

My name is Russ and I manage all things warehouse and product fulfilment, basically, everything coming in and out of our warehouses and stores. In between unloading containers every few weeks, stock arriving from our local suppliers daily and picking and packing all customer orders, I’m also likely to be the guy who helps you carry your new BBQ out to your car!

I come from a hospitality background and have worked for some of the top chefs in the USA. I have a passion for cooking, especially all things BBQ, to the point where a few mates and I formed our own BBQ competition team. When we're not competing on the Australian competition circuit, we're doing practice cooks on the weekend testing that new rub or sauce or technique we just heard about.

I enjoy working as part of the BBQ Spit Rotisseries team, especially finessing my BBQ competition smoking skills by cooking Friday lunches for the rest of the crew. I also manage our monthly demonstrations, classes, events & BBQ competitions and am often hanging out in the showroom helping new pitmasters take their BBQ to the next level.

 

 

 

 

 

Sydney Store & Customer Experience Manager.....Resident Pitmaster

Cameron Davidson

 

Who the heck is this bearded guy? This is often what goes through people’s minds when they first see me but let me introduce myself properly. My name is Cam and I’m the manager of the BSR Sydney showroom and the guy who runs all the BBQ Masterclasses and cooking demonstrations in Sydney. I’m also the really helpful and friendly one you’re likely to chat with over the phone, by email and through the live chat function through our website.

I have worked for over 15 years in the retail industry and decided that shopping centres weren’t for me anymore. I wanted to follow my love and passion for Low ‘n Slow BBQ and work in a job where I could talk about BBQ all day, help people experience the amazing flavours that can only be achieved when cooking with charcoal and wood. It all started when I went to visit my brother who lives in Texas. My fiancé and I started in Tennessee and travelled down to Texas stopping at just about every BBQ joint we could. From then on, I was hooked. I came home, bought myself a smoker and haven’t stopped cooking since.

I love the fact that I get paid to help people get into BBQ, cook at work, record video content for our social media posts and help people take their BBQ game to the next level.

 

 

 

 

Seaford Showroom & Wholesale Account Manager

Reuben Connolly

 

I’m Reuben and if you’re visiting us at our Seaford showroom, I’m the one who’ll be looking after you. I also look after our wholesale customers nationally and make sure they are up to date with everything BBQ and charcoal.

I have a strong sales background in the wholesale meat and smallgoods industry and have worked around food for near on 30 years in some way shape or form. My father and brother run a butcher/smallgoods store as well as a restaurant so all things meat is very close to my heart. 

I’m a mad rugby league supporter, despite being born and bred in Victoria, but when your home team has been the best for more than a decade, why not! I enjoy cooking, travelling, and basically experiencing everything life has to offer, and I’m really fortunate to be a part of the team at BSR.

 

 

 

 

 

Fulfilment & Marketing Assistant

Alex Marimon

 

Hi, I’m Alex and I assist Rhiannon and Mat with all things marketing. My varied role consists of booking couriers for order dispatch, designing marketing material for both print and online, preparing our weekly newsletters, social media posting, designing product packaging, creating website banners, buying guides and managing registrations for our in-store demonstrations and BBQ classes. Growing up, I loved playing computer games which inspired me to go on and study IT at college. I enjoy being part of such a great company culture that always helps and supports one another, and most importantly the service we give to our customers.

While I love my job, it can be tough editing all our amazing cooking videos and putting together recipe cards without feeling hungry! My favourite food to eat is Filipino style pork Lechon. After work and on weekends, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, watching movies and playing computer games.
