That Hawaiian Guy’s BBQ started as a passion project. Duane, That Hawaiian Guy, cooked for family and friend gatherings as far back as the 8th grade with Hawaiian style Fried Rice for friends and family at sleepovers. As “the tribe” (friends and family) grew, so did his focus on making what he loved to do, his career. He started throwing BBQs at his house and neighborhoods, where he invited everyone to stop by, try the food, and provide feedback. The food created a buzz around how much love went into the food. This quickly grew into catering for parties ranging from Draft Parties to Graduation Parties to We just wanted to have a BBQ Parties.
