In 1992 award winning barbeque designer and manufacturer Leon Carter went out to create something new that had never been done before. He designed and manufactured the first barbeque island cabinet and barbeque equipment to be built in one factory and assembled as one unit. The customer had a variety of exterior finish options and the instant gratification of a ready to use product delivered to their home. This product is what is now known as the portable outdoor kitchen. Twenty years later Leon Carter — driven purely by passion and a desire to create something new– has set out to build a new premium luxury line of barebeques derivative of nothing else on the marketplace. When you first experience a Lion Premium BBQ you will see all the attention and innovation that went into it.
