Welcome To Fatboy BBQ
The Fatboy #210
The name “Fatboy BBQ” and infact the first unit we made, the Fatboy #210, was inspired fabrication of a smoker that was not that unique in design, but now made available to all. Also giving the name to the company. The original #210 was made to suit a 6′ x 4″ Trailer. The footprint had to fit this space so that anyone could tow this unit home and try out American Style Low ‘n’ Slow for themselves.
The cylinder design was inspired by Aaron Franklin, but sourcing a tank in Australia that hadn’t been used for gas was hard. The 210Kg bottle fit the bill and the bottle was known in the gas industry as a “Fatboy” so it made perfect sense that a unit made from this bottle design was called the Fatboy #210. Hence Fatboy BBQ was born.
The firebox for this tank is made with 6mm mild steel and the top was designed with a 10mm griddle top and drain so that you can make the most from the heat of your fire by using the plate to grill some tasty steaks or bacon & eggs breakfast while you wait, or keep your sauce going with the sauce station positioned just above the griddle plate.
If you are not sure that American style BBQ is for you then this BBQ is your way to find out. Available for hire 365 days a year. *Conditions Apply* Traditional offset style low ‘n’ slow BBQ is at your fingertips. Call us now and book the date for your next party.
The Custom Range
At Fatboy BBQ we understand that it is not in everyone’s budget to custom build a smoker. But rest assured that our prices aren’t based on some made up value of what a smoker is worth – or a comparison of the current market. If we take on a custom build for you we take into account the primary objective: What the customer wants.
At the end of the day, we will manufacture a BBQ for you specifically and it will be a BBQ that will last for a lifetime of use. Our labour rates are very reasonable for qualified and certified tradesman labour. Sure you can build one in your backyard, but be prepared for it to take many dozens of hours. All of our fabrication works are backed by a lifetime guarantee and carried out by qualified tradesman.
We fabricate the #210 as a free-standing model and the smaller brother the Fatboy #90 – Made to the same dimensions of the 90Kg Gas Bottle. All freestanding units come with options, but are completely portable – mobile – and customisable.
We also manufacture a standard 20″ Diameter Offset Smoker called the Fatboy Texas. We can manufacture units up to any length, vertical cupboard style smokers and smaller ugly drums. Contact us today if you are thinking of a project.
The Hardwood Pellet Trailer
For some, Pellet Fed Smokers are cheating….For others it’s a means to an end…and for the purist, well…just ask them why they choose pellet fed smokers. Inevitably they will tell you that the skill is not building the fire and fire management, it is the prep, the monitoring and the care taken during the cooking process.
Whichever camp you end up in we can only hope that there is a seriously juicy rib, wing or belly to sink your teeth into when all is said and done…..Make of that what you will!
At Fatboy BBQ we quickly worked out that part of what we needed to do was give people the opportunity to experience all forms of the BBQ life and as such we invested in probably the best brand of pellet smokers on the market worldwide. Our Yoder YS1500 trailer smoker is a thing of beauty. BBQ competitions have been won hands down on this unit.
If you think that BBQ is easy once you have the smoker to take care of the temperature, the fire, the smoke then guess again buddy, you are wrong.
Quite simply, there is no hiding in BBQ. If you get it wrong, you’ll be chewing all night. At least with the Yoder YS1500 – you will be able to tick quite a few boxes and hopefully impress your mates with the juicy deilights they deserve.

Hardwood Pellet Grills
A motor turns the auger which feeds pellets into the firebox. There, a heat rod automatically ignites the pellets and a variable speed fan keeps them burning. The Venturi-style firebox is lined with vertical vents creating a burn pot cyclone of air flow for maximum heat and complete combustion of the pellets with minimal waste.
The *heat shield that covers the firebox distributes the heat to both sides of the grill, causing it to flow up into the convection-style grill chamber. A sensor mounted inside the grill sends data to the on-board computer 10 times every second, and the controller adjusts the air and pellet flow to maintain the temperature you set.
Green Mountain Grills Brand Pellets are made of 100% kiln-dried sawdust that never touches the floor. Our pellets are held together by the natural lignins in the wood and are a larger diameter pellet that allows them to last longer than standard size pellets.
Low Pellet Alarm lets you know when you need to add fuel
Hot Start Mode in case of power failure or accidental turn-off
Food Probe for safe temps
