As a BBQ enthusiast finding a store like this is tough in Phoenix considering the BBQ culture in this city is not what it is as in other states like Texas, Missouri, North/South Carolina, Oklahoma etc. I grew up in Chicago and there having a cook out or BBQ was an event, BBQ Island offers everything to make it such. Also I genuinely enjoy supporting Small Businesses and BBQ Island is definitely a small business with specialty items and knowledge. They have even special ordered a product for me in the past that I could not find anywhere else in Phoenix. I highly recommend this place if you are looking to build an Outdoor Kitchen or are in need of a pellet or charcoal smoker. Glad I found them.

This is by far the best bbq store in the valley. The staff here is always so knowledgeable and extremely helpful. Everyone always wants to talk about what and how you’re grilling to help give you tips to perfect your grilling techniques. They have an extensive selection of spices, rubs and sauces to choose from. I make it a point to stop by at least once a week to pick up a new seasoning or just to see what new things they have brought in. I highly recommend stopping by to check these guys out. They rock!!

I cook a lot of BBQ, compete in BBQ competitions, and just generally love BBQ. I've been to a lot of BBQ stores around the country. None of the stores I've been to can match the inventory, knowledge, and selection offered by BBQ Island. Everyone is extremely friendly and always willing to give advice. If you're looking for a new rub or seasoning to try, you're free to sample just about everything they have in stock. Pricing is in line or even better than products of same/similar quality at other stores. Those complaining about price are likely comparing the high end quality products at BBQ Island with low end products you'd pick up at a big home improvement store. I've bought a few different grills and smokers (to accommodate increased cooking needs), rubs, sauces, and gadgets from here and don't plan on buying from anywhere else if I can help it.

Possibly the best place in the Phoenix area where you can by virtually all level of smokers, pellet grills, high end BBQ island components, fireplace components and accessories. I've found Mike, the owner, and his team to be very knowledgeable, friendly, and helpful. I just purchased a Pellet Grill from them, late in the day on Sunday. Steve, the manager, made sure that the grill was delivered to my home the same day. Great service! If you're looking for quality grills, smokers, and accessories, these guys will take great care of you.

on 2/3/14 I came in to get some expert advice on the Memphis Pros vs Mak Generals pellet grills. However, I spent an entire hour in there with no help at all trying to figure out things for myself. Somebody was working on a built-in grill so I asked him if I could see a Mak 2 star, but he said simply, "We dont have any of those now". Ok, that is fine. So when are you going to get some in? Can't you place one on backorder? If I am interested in buying, wouldn't the owner of this company want someone to be proactively helping me? Anyways, he didnt do any of this and went back to working on one of the grills. The other rep on the floor seemed mostly interested in sharing BBQ stories with someone that came in to just talk. I patiently waited with my son for that client to finish buying his rub. Then someone else started hanging out and just chatting with the sales rep again. All I needed was basic customer service; someone to ask what I wanted and that they would be with me in "x" minutes. The last thing you want to do as a customer is pull teeth to get someone to help you that never made any effort to help you from the start. They do have a great selection, and some incredible grills that you can't see anywhere else in the city. However, within that 1 hour, I could've been informed and bought the pellet grill of my choice. I will bring my business somewhere else where I dont have to waste my time

I like this store so much I usually make an appearance once per week. I have a competition bbq team and this store is a great reason why we have had a little bit of success. If you want the best product at a reasonable price then this is your place. Also the staff is very friendly and always willing to answer your questions or take time with you to buy even the items as small as rubs and sauce. This staff has the best knowledge of all things BBQ in the west and just being in this store will improve your skills as a BBQ cook. They routinely interact with their customers to find out what we want to see in their store. They are at the center of what I consider to be the local BBQ society, which are all part of the best people you will ever meet. We will continue to support this store every chance we get, as they personally have done so much for us.

Wow really disappointed! It's Wednesday, the day before Thanksgiving at 4:45 pm and they are already closed. The hours clearly state 9:00 am to 6:00 pm Monday - Friday. I came to purchase a turkey fryer and wood pellets. I guess business is so good they can afford to close when they want. I'll take my business some where else and I won't be back again.

We just got one of the newly redesigned Marshall smokers in and boy howdy is it great. The new innovations make this smoker one of the top ones in its class.

FYI: Don't eat grill brush wires.
Cleaning your barbeque grill should not be hazardous to your health, but a Puyallup woman says a broken wire from a grill brush nearly killed her.

An overview of the 3rd generation Marshall smoker made by The Good One.
The Marshall smoker by The Good One is a well built workhorse. It's large smoking chamber and huge firebox make it a really versatile unit.
