Meet the BBQ Spit Rotisseries Team

CEO & Product Designer

Tony Teboneras

My name is Tony Teboneras and I am the founder, product designer and CEO of BBQ Spit Rotisseries. 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. Almost 11 years later, I am proud that we have become the largest manufacturer of spit roasters in Australia and have now expanded our range into meat smokers.

As well as designing new products and improve our existing products, I oversee our manufacturing team offshore. 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.

 

General Manager

Rhiannon Peterson

My name is Rhiannon Peterson and I have been the general manager at BBQ Spit Rotisseries since the business started back in 2006. In addition to overseeing that our customers are happy, I liaise with our suppliers, oversee marketing, 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 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 fur-baby in the park.

 

Business Improvement & Marketing

Gerardo Reis

Hi, I am Gerardo from BBQ Spit Rotisseries. I am the guy that helps things run smoothly here at BBQ Spit Rotisseries and you can also thank me for all those amazing emails with tips, recipes and awesome offers that I send to you.

As a Portuguese Namibian (somewhere in Africa), we love meat and only cook with charcoal. Braai (barbecue) is not only a culture, it is basically its own religion in Namibia. We are so precious about it, that we have the saying - “You can touch my wife, but never touch my braai (barbecue)!” Jokes aside, I was raised on charcoal cooking and pride myself on taking flavours to new heights with my Namibian and Portuguese background. I love eating, but to balance it out, I am the next Rafael Nadal tennis player and also have a young daughter that keeps me on my toes.

 

Webmaster, Customer Service & Resident “Mr Fix It”

Jarrod Maultby

What I lack in a traditional/token BBQer’s beard I make up with a sense of humour, a genuine drive to help people and provide them with excellent service as well as a keen eye for detail.

I have had many different professions in my life which have given me the chance to learn and help people from all walks of life as well as learn how to manage a number of businesses across different industries.

Here at BBQ Spit Rotisseries I look after returns/warranty claims, create video content for our YouTube channel and website, manage our relationships with couriers to ensure customers get their items quickly with a minimum of fuss, and use my skills as a ‘Jack-of-all-trades’ to support the entire BSR team.....and keep them entertained with my endless supply of dad jokes. You'll also find me on live chat, answering the phones and helping customers in our showroom choose the best BBQ for their needs.

In my spare time I play basketball, albeit not as great as when I was younger, I unwind with Playstation and XBox, hang out with my dogs, Bailey and Peaches and on weekends I love spending time with my beautiful wife and daughter as well as catching up with my family, most importantly, over a good BBQ and a hearty red wine.

 

Sales and customer service - Melbourne

Ben Strike

Hi, My name is Ben and I will be one of the first people you meet when you visit our Melbourne store to answer any questions you have all things BBQ. 

I have extensive sales and customers service skills that I have gained over my 10 year career and I'm excited to be able to incorporate my love for helping people with my love of cooking. Spit roast lamb is one of my specialty menu items that my wife and son beg me to cook. My spare time is spent cheering on the mighty Swannies with a cold beer in hand and the lamb rotating over the hot coals.

 

 

 

Sydney Store & Customer Service Manager

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. 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 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 by 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.

 

Executive Administrative Assistant

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 making updates to the website. I also help with designing marketing material for the website, organising events/BBQ classes, preparing and sending out newsletters etc.

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. For those of you who don’t know Lechon is, Lechon is the most popular specialty 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.

 

Marketing Assistant

Alex Marimon

Hi, I’m Alex and my role consists of listing new products to the website, editing and uploading videos and doing a lot of the design for the website and marketing material. 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 and watching movies.

 

 

 

Warehouse & Fulfilment

Russ McDougall

My name is Russ and I look after everything to do with the warehouse and product fulfilment. In between unloading containers every few weeks, stock arriving from our local suppliers daily and picking and packing all customer orders, I’m likely to be the guy who carries your charcoal out to your car so you don’t get your hands dirty!

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'm still learning more about the spit roasting products, but if you do have that niggling question as I help you with your new BBQ out to your car, I'll do my best to help you out.

 

 

 

Online Content Curator

Hi, I'm Tobby Villasis and I suppose you can say that I do all things website related. In addition to listing new products to our website, I run daily tests to ensure our website is functioning as it's supposed to, list products to online marketplaces, edit product videos and maintain the integrity of our customer database. 

I was born and raised in Oman so I grew up around cooking with charcoal. I have learned so much about BBQ since joining the BBQ Spit Rotisseries team and I now understand why by father is such a BBQ enthusiast. I must say that tend to eat a lot more now too!

Having studied computer science during my college years, I'm happy to have a job which allows me to utilize my skills while working in an industry that I love.  

On the weekends I'm either spending time with my family and friends or out and about looking for a new joint to chow down at.
