In my opinion it looks dodgy. The fact there is no direct contact information and only an email address sends a red flag up straight away.
I'm happy to be proved wrong, but you wouldn't catch me shopping there.

That store is fine, it’s run and owned by Doug who is a fellow
Team mate in our BBQ team Boreshank Redemption.

He’s based in Landsdale in Perth, carries a huge amount of stock and is a home based business.

I’m sure Doug will be along shortly, but I can certainly vouch for him.

Thank you for that
The lack of any detail is what made me ask
Phone or address would make it more legitimate ,
Cheers

Thanks for your reply, but not knowing you or Doug and no contact information makes me ask the question.
Thanks again for your time.

I would baulk at it too if I had no way to contact them other than through the website when you hear of many stories of emails being ignored etc. So yeah I think if he wants to create trust by buyers who may not know who he is or where he is, he should include details of location and phone contact.
I was actually thinking just by the product content that it may have been run by a well known product importer who is a member here as he does handle a lot of the content but not all but some of the product line ruled out my way of thinking but theres definately a close business association.

Got some good stuff in there though...he just needs to add a few details for buyer's piece of mind.

I can also vouch for Doug. He's well known among the bbq community here in Perth and was the first person authorised to sell Yoder smokers here in Perth I believe. It is a legit business and would highly recommend him.

He runs other businesses so his bbq business is purley online but I'm sure there's many people in the Perth BBQ community that would vouch for him.
