  • The challenge was to design and develop a range of versatile cooking solutions that complimented Australians' love for the outdoors. The range was to be compact without compromising on cooking power, could withstand the harsh Australian elements, had a timeless aesthetic that complimented any environment and allowed users to cook the way they wanted; from high temperature grilling through to low temperature roasting.

  • Focusing around performance and usability, The Yardlife 'Roam' Portable BBQ series meets the outlined brief through a product line-up consisting of one burner, two burner and three burner models. Delivering this unmatched cooking experience in a range of sizes means that there is a model to suit every scenario, whether that's cooking on-the-go on your bush adventure or entertaining at a social gathering at home. All BBQs in the range have been tried and tested to tackle both precise hood-down roasting and high-performance hood-up grilling, delivering all the elements of a regular size BBQ in a compact form.

  • The Yardlife 'Roam' Portable BBQ series challenges users to re-envision the classic Australian BBQ. Packaged in a streamlined and compact form that has carefully considered the removal of unnecessary bulk and excess, The 'Roam' range supports Australia's shift to minimalist living. Users who are living in smaller spaces and still want all the elements of a traditionally sized BBQ can turn to the 'Roam' range as a compact solution without the high price tag. Commonality of components across the range increases its design for disassembly and reduces the overall material usage from product conception, keeping the range affordable for buyers.
