Our story

Invented and founded by Lester Manley. Born in Northern Ireland, Lester is privileged to have worked all his life serving clients all over the world, helping them build strong assets in their brands. He also has brought innovation to the heart of organisations and lead numerous innovation projects pioneering several world firsts and world leading products and services.

Trailblazer happened by accident!

Lester was helping out at a church summer youth camp where they were catering for over 200 people.. on a beach. With light dropping and the tide coming in, Lester was challenged to solve the problem of fast reliable BBQ grilling in challenging conditions, seeing a real need and setting out to fix it.

As a result, the next summer, for the fun of the challenge and no intention of going beyond the youth camp… TRAILBLAZER BBQ was born!

Our Ethos 

We believe in delivering a high performing range of commercial charcoal bbq products with added value, integrity, courteousy and enthusiasm and strive to the best of our ability to run the business with the timeless wisdom of Christian values.

The 3 pillars of TRAILBLAZER that we aspire to are

1 Bless others
We are committed to developing products that really contribute to people’s quality of life, bring people together, and making a difference to those who use them.

2 Have fun
Trailblazer believe that a lot of fun is taken out of business because of the pressure of competition, increased legislation, reduced margins, managing people and processes and keeping customers happy. We believe that Trailblazer can bring a lot of fun to the journey which in turn infects your customers.

3 Make money
This is sometimes seen a s a dirty word but if you don’t make money you won’t be in business. The first 2 pillars are only achievable on a long term basis if the business is sustained by healthy profits. Trailblazer is committed to developing products that significantly increase this potential.
