Company Profile

Hello, I am Melvin Whitman owner of BQ Grills BQ Grills started out as just a hobby, that I picked up from my father-in-law,  back in 1989 and slowly turned into a business by 1991.  In 1996, my brother-in-law, Greg Stallings came to work with me. Due to our attention on customer satisfaction and quality, the business grew to our current state. We now have several full time employees.  Greg runs our shop area and I handle the sales and store area with my wife Karen.

We build anything from simple patio grills up to large custom catering rigs.  Our portable units are commonly referred to as Pig Cookers in Eastern NC, but they are capable of cooking almost everything.
