Cautious Optimism in BBQ & Grill Industry

The economy has most everyone sweating, but there seems to be a belief in the barbecue industry that they may get through it.  According to an article in Casual Living Magazine, many industry insiders are seeing similar unit sales to last year.

Of course the real change is that many consumers seem to be headed towards less expensive units.

On the flip side higher end manufacturers like Lynx and Big Green Egg seem to be experiencing some gains, on the argument that their products are a wise investment for people staying home more now. This argument was used to explain strong sales in grills after 9/11.

According to the latest statistics from HPBA last years grill sales were down from previous years but still substantially stronger than 2005.

Interestingly enough, 2008 charcoal shipments were up, implying that people had more cookouts than previous years, which seems to support the “staycation” theory (staycation is a vacation you take at home).
