Searsmiths: The Aussie Barbecue Revolution
Searsmiths: The Aussie Barbecue Revolution

“It’s the best bit of steak I’ve ever tasted.” That’s my feedback on the Searsmiths barbecue, after founders Dave Thomassian and Paren Arzoomanian joined me to talk about their business. These two quit their jobs in 2016 to start up their own business called Searsmiths, and have gone through 12 prototypes of their barbecue ‘forge’ to reach today where they’re selling and looking to move into retailers. We talk about designing and manufacturing, dealing with industry certifications, and how the great Australian backyard dream of cooking the best barbecue is still well and truly alive.

When I first met them on The Mentor TV show, they were close to shutting down - their fridge was broken, they had no business systems and weren’t making any money. We catch up about how they’re going since being on the show and whether they’re still putting into practice all the things we worked on. They’re two hilarious women with a great story - so make sure you tune in.
