A Little About Us

HelpMeBbq.com has been cookin'!

We've been grilling and barbecuing for about as long as anyone we know. Originally we, like most folks we suppose, learned how to cook from our parents & maybe our grandparents...the right way or wrong way! Regardless, at that time, we began our journey into the world of smoke!

HelpMeBBQ.com is owned by Barr Brothers Manufacturing, Inc. We have been making meat handling products for the meat industry for over a hundred years, so we know our meat! We also have an e-commerce store called ToolWizard.com where we sell some of the best and most unique outdoor cooking products. We are always adding to our stable of fine quality products for outdoor cooking!

Visit us today for great products for the outdoor cooking experience.

The Growing Years:

Our company history dates back to 1873 in Eugene, Oregon, where we supplied the local demand for cutlery and burlap sack-needles important in a grain-growing and milling district. 

The growth of the company was relatively slow in the earlier years but upon moving to Oakland, California in 1912, the business expanded rapidly as the only cutlery manufacturer west of the Mississippi River. Throughout the 20th Century our products ranged from axe blades and machetes for the fire fighting industry to guns for the U.S. Army. In the 1950's we began making industrial cutlery for the meat packing industry which eventually lead to a line of consumer barbecue products. 

In 1975 we were incorporated and became Boehringer Manufacturing Company in central California. Now sold under the Tool Wizard name, our BBQ Tools and Accessories can be found in specialty stores and internet web sites. 

Today, based out of Redding, California, BBQ Tools is still in the burlap sack needle business along with manufacturing a variety of high quality stainless steel butcher tools. As a natural offshoot to the butcher tools (boning hooks in particular), BBQ Tools expanded their product line to include high quality stainless steel barbecue tools. These include barbecue meat turning hooks (13”, 17” and 25” for both left and right handed users), the Monster Fork, the Grill Grabber® grate lifting tool and the Grill Wizard® grate cleaning brush.

Our product line soon expanded to include additional barbecue tools and accessories noted for their quality and uniqueness. BBQ Tools commitment to quality has never wavered. Whether manufacturing, contracting or distributing, if the end product is not a quality item, it won’t be part of the BBQ Tools family of products.

Please take a few moments to view all our grilling, food preparation, cutlery, camping and garden tools and accessories (along with our gifts and shop tools). I’m sure you will agree that these are the most functional, best looking, highest quality tools and accessories you’ll find anywhere.

Where we're going:

Over the next few years, we will be growing this site into a storehouse of information for you, our readers, where you will learn the proper techniques for preparing the finest in outdoor meals. We're adding new recipes, tips, techniques and more to this site. 

Our primary goal is to help make you a better outdoor cook so you, your family and your friends will have more fun and better meals to enjoy. Study hard and you will be rewarded with great meals for everyone.
