Meet Waz…


Waz – sauce freak, Braai or BBQ nut, motorcycle enthusiast & family man.

Hey there, 

I’m Warren AKA Waz – pronounced Woz – 

I’m simply crazy about cooking outdoors [So crazy in fact, that I built an

outdoor kitchen in my backyard and we called it Waz’s BBQ Hut.] 

Whether nurturing a pulled pork for 12 hrs, knocking up some veggies or a

delicious cornbread, the smoky smell of fire and endless flavours, make it

my favourite thing to be sharing good times and great food with family and


My enthusiasm for food and cooking started with my parents. With my

Mum’s family cooking and my Dad’s chef skills food has always been part

of my life. 

The memories of family hiking holidays in Wales, cooking out in the open

over flame, ignited my passion for BBQ culture. I am also a huge fan of a

great sauce to kick it up a notch and take that flavour sensation to epic.

Sticky glazes, drizzled dressings or a dollop of a favourite sauce puts a grin

on my face.  

I love to be hands-on and trying stuff out – my sauces are the result of my

practical and enthusiastic approach to banishing boring generic flavours,

eliminating allergens and additives, and delivering wholesome home-made,

tastebud-tingling delight.  

Our family table is inspired by flavour combinations from the southern

states of America to the southernmost tip of Africa. We love experimenting,

challenging our taste buds and bringing family and friends together with my

twist on how to use flavour and sauces to bring food to life.

Established in 2020 we have been thrilled with the response to our saucy

line-up, winning Great Taste & Great British Food Awards and we can’t wait

to introduce you to the next editions.  

As our journey continues Waz’s BBQ Hut has become Waz’s Sauce Hut,

because as I mentioned…..we are all about our sauces!
